Tour Schedule

With this Dead Sea day trip you can really unwind and get rid of all that tension and stress. The tour takes you from Jerusalem through the Judean Hills past the Inn of the Good Samaritan and heads south. We stop briefly for a photo-op at the sign indicating “sea level” then continue to the Dead Sea at 430m beneath sea level – the lowest place on Earth. You can relax and enjoy one of the best Dead Sea beaches. Soak up the sun which has the lowest UVB rays on Earth; cover yourself in mineral-rich Dead Sea mud and swim in the sea. The water of the Dead Sea is 8.5 times saltier than the ocean so it is impossible to sink or for any living creature to live in the water. The Dead Sea environment has natural health and beauty benefits and gives visitors an overall sense of well-being.

Travelers Reviews

What To Expect

The Dead Sea tour starts as we leave Jerusalem and make our way through the Judean Hills heading south. Along the way we pass the Inn of the Good Samaritan, the setting for Jesus’ famous parable. We stop briefly where a sign tells us we have reached sea level. From here there are magnificent views across the desert all the way to the ancient city of Jericho.
The Dead Sea day tour continues further and further beneath sea level to the lowest place on Earth, 430m below sea level at the Dead Sea. The tour takes us to one of the best Dead Sea beaches where we can relax and enjoy all of the benefits of the sea’s natural environment.
The Dead Sea’s unique location and mineral-rich hyper-saline water offers some unparalleled health and beauty benefits. With its low elevation fewer of the sun’s harmful UVB rays reach the Dead Sea. The dry Dead Sea air is allergen-free and rich in oxygen. People with respiratory problems find the Dead Sea air eases their condition. While on your Dead Sea day trip you can cover your skin with the mineral-rich Dead Sea mud for natural rejuvenating skin treatment.
The salt and minerals of the Dead Sea water have been proven to relieve eczema, acne, psoriasis and other skin ailments. The Dead Sea water, salt, and mud are often used in spa and beauty treatments and the minerals are harvested and used for cosmetics, medicines and beauty products. After unwinding on the Dead Sea beach and enjoying floating in the salty water we return to Jerusalem.
