From the Mediterranean we descend 400 meters to the lowest place on the earths surface.


Set off from Haifa port to the Dead Sea and visit unique sites, each special and different with its own enchanting story and setting.
From the waters of the Mediterranean, we head off to the desert of Jerusalem in the Bible. Here we'll hear about Joshua, King Saul, and King David. . . . of Herod's persimmon perfume factory that he bequeathed to Cleopatra as a favour to Marc Antony. At the Ahava factory, we can see how the wonderful Dead Sea products are made from the waters and mud of the Dead Sea.
Masada, Herod's desert retreat was one of four he had built. . . . . . just in case, he needed one close by if he was attacked.

Itinerary

Itinerary:
Jericho - "the oldest city in the world".
Hear about Joshua, Caleb, and Rahab and how the walls fell down.

Qumran - site of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls. Here, identical copies of the Bible were found in the middle of the 20th Century, proving it wasn't a modern fabrication.

Masada - Herod the Great's desert fortress retreat. Who can believe he would make such an effort. Hear about the other 4 retreats he had built.

Swim in the Dead Sea. . . . just don't shave the day before.
