Create an itinerary including Dead Sea
One of the world's more unusual bodies of water, Dead Sea sits at one of the lowest elevations on Earth. Rich in salt and in history, the lake is nearly ten times saltier than any ocean. Feel the peculiar sensation of floating in water some 428 m (1,404 ft) below sea level, just as Queen Cleopatra did in the 1st century BCE. Surrounded by dozens of resorts with both private and public beaches, the sea remains a favorite destination for taking dips in the mineral-rich waters, framed by the Judean desert and mountains.

  • We stayed within walking distance so we had good access. We enjoyed the immersion and the mud etc, floating was fun. A really interesting thing to do.

  • I read a lot about it, but experiencing the Dead Sea first hand was special. Yes, the newspaper-reading-in-the-water-trick works as it should in theory - you really can read comfortably and not sink!
