It’s not often you get to combine body pampering with one of the world’s holiest sites, but this isn’t an ordinary tour. It starts with a walking tour, exploring the ancient city of Jerusalem. This white, walled city is more than 3,000 years old, and it’s the site of the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus. Your walk through the city echoes the... path Jesus took as he carried his cross to Calvary, and includes a visit to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and the site of Jesus’ crucifixion, burial and resurrection. Finally, you’ll stop off at the Western Wall, where Orthodox Jews carefully place prayer notes into the cracks of the wall. Then, ready for the second half of your trip – you'll take a desert drive to the earth’s lowest point – the Dead Sea. After your walking tour of Jerusalem, you’re bound to have an appetite, so it's time to take a drive to lunch. Afterwards, it’s time to enjoy the healing properties of the salt rich waters. This area is known all over the globe for its mineral-rich properties. In fact, it’s so saline, it’s actually impossible to sink. You’ll head into the waves for a float, exposing your skin to all the nutrients.
It’s a 1.5-hour drive to Jerusalem. Wear comfortable shoes, as you'll be walking for about 2 hours through Jerusalem taking in some of the stages of the cross. Don't forget your swimwear and towel.
