Why we chose this tour

Our Masada Sunrise Hike, Ein Gedi Oasis, and Dead Sea Experience Tour will take you on a wild adventure as you immerse yourself in history and nature in some of the most iconic spots in Israel. Sunrise is the ultimate time to experience Masada, as the rising sun illuminates the desert in glistening shades of orange and red. Let your worries melt away as you float in the saltiest water on Earth, and explore a beautiful desert oasis teeming with life.

The Masada Sunrise Hike, Ein Gedi Oasis, & Dead Sea Experience Tour will take you on an expedition to discover an ancient fortress and one of the most jaw-dropping views in Israel. Imagine reaching Masada after you’ve climbed 400 feet in elevation from the Dead Sea, the lowest place on earth. Your legs are wobbly, but a sense of pride and emotion overwhelms you as you take in the remarkable views around you.


You gaze out across the sweeping views you have of the Jordanian Moab Mountains and the Dead Sea, painted orange by the daylight beginning to creep its way in. The rising sun warms your face and body and shines light on the staggering Masada fortress in front of you. Every step of your journey was worth it for the view and the lifelong memories you’ll have to take home with you.


After taking in the impressive feat of history, you’ll continue your journey to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, a lush green oasis in the middle of the desert. Amazement will overwhelm you as you breathe in the wildlife around you and soak your sore feet in the cold springs along the way. Finally, you’ll head to the Dead Sea where you’ll relinquish control and allow the salty waters to carry your body under the sun. Our Masada Sunrise Hike, Ein Gedi Oasis, & Dead Sea Experience Tour is self-guided, perfect for the independent explorer who wants the flexibility to experience these sites on their own terms.
