Our Masada Sunrise Tour from Tel Aviv or Jerusalem includes Ein Gedi and the Dead Sea and is the easiest, cheapest, and most comprehensive way to visit this region of Israel. Start your day with a sunrise climb of Masada, ascending to the top of the ancient fortress in darkness and gradually witness the lighting-up of the surroundings. Once reaching the top of the mountain, sit back, relax and take in the beauty of this extraordinary event. After the highlight of our Masada Sunrise Tour, head to the Ein Gedi Nature Reserve, an extraordinary oasis with magnificent desert plants, wildlife, and waterfalls perched in the center of a barren and empty desert. Enjoy walking through the greenery and cooling off in the springs. And finally, float in the Dead Sea, the lowest place on Earth. The lake is made up of 34% salt and contains minerals and muds with special healing properties.

With stunning scenery, wildlife, fun, and adventure, no trip to Israel could be complete without a visit! Our Masada Sunrise Tour starts and ends conveniently in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, and is guided. The tour is available every day.
