Jeep & Chill Tour: Judean Desert and Dead Sea Adventure from Jerusalem
Are you looking for an adventure that blends history, nature, and relaxation? Then our Jeep Tour and Dead Sea Chill Out are perfect for you. Get ready to experience the rugged beauty of the Judean Desert, witness ancient traditions, and visit one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world. Afterwards, unwind at the Dead Sea by floating in the famous salty water or immersing yourself in mineral-rich mud. These tours offer a great value and a convenient escape from the chaos of daily life.
Join us on an exciting journey through the Judean Desert with our Jeep Tour. Leave the city’s traffic behind and enter a world of breathtaking landscapes and ancient traditions. We’ll take you to explore the territory of the Bedouin tribes, witness their shacks and animals, and discover the significance of ancient water cisterns. Learn about the Bedouin shepherds’ way of life, which has remained unchanged for generations. We’ll also visit Mount Azazel, where the ancient Jewish tradition of casting off a scapegoat still takes place annually on Yom Kippur.
Our next stop is the almost-secret Mar Saba Monastery, which was founded over 1500 years ago and is inhabited by Greek Orthodox monks. The monastery, surrounded by ancient rock caves, provides a rare glimpse into the past and is one of the oldest inhabited monasteries in the world.
After the Jeep Tour, we’ll head back to Jerusalem and then travel to the Dead Sea for our Chill Out experience. You can relax and float in the salty water or immerse yourself in mineral-rich mud, renowned for its beauty benefits worldwide. Our non-guided tour provides great value and a convenient option for visiting this site of natural beauty and significance.
