Description

Spend time at the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth, experiencing the hyper-saline water and the beautiful landscapes that border it. Enjoy lunch on the shores, unwinding in its ambient tranquillity. Pay a visit to the archaeological remains of the home of John the Baptist.

Begin the day with a trip to “Bethany Beyond the Jordan” – the widely accepted location of Jesus' baptism. Here, observe the excavated site and learn of its importance in the annals of religious history.

Proceed to the Dead Sea, serene and sparsely populated at 1,300 feet (400 m) below sea level. Views to the mountains in the east and rolling hills of Jerusalem to the west create a spectacular, engaging scene.

After a delicious lunch in a hotel on the banks of the sea, take some time to relax. The water here has strong links with medicinal products, so take some time to rejuvenate with a soothing dip. Float on top of the water, a curious sensation as the high salt concentration supports your body weight. Savour your time out of the city as you recharge and revel in the area's restorative qualities.
