Masada Sunrise & Dead Sea Tour from Eilat

On this tour, we will explore some of the most iconic sites in Israel from the southernmost point Eilat. 

We will depart from Eilat in the early morning and drive north through the desert to the foot of Masada. As we begin the moderate, 45-minute hike up the Snake Path, the sun will emerge in the east over the mountains, providing a breathtaking view of Jordan and the Dead Sea. You’ll reach the top just in time to relax in front of the stunning desert landscape and shimmering sun on the still waters of the sea.

With time to explore the ancient fortress of Masada, we will view the archaeological remains of a castle built by King Herod in 30 BCE, and the place where the Jewish rebels famously decided to take their own lives rather than fall into the hands of the advancing Roman armies. After descending the same path, you will find the bus waiting to bring you to the next stop.

Driving back south, we will stop at Ein Bokek, the southern beach of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Float in the salty waters and enjoy the rejuvenating mud before heading back to Eilat.

Our must-see Masada Sunrise tour from Eilat allows you to visit some of Israel’s most beautiful and unique places, which can be difficult to get to on your own, whether you are just passing through or vacationing in Eilat. For many travelers, this experience becomes the highlight of their trip in Israel.
