One of my favorite experiences in Israel was a Judean Desert Jeep Tour when we visited the Dead Sea. This fun off-road activity would be perfect for families with older children or adults looking for a unique experience.
Judean Desert Jeep Tour
We were picked up at the Isrotel Hotel in the Dead Sea Valley by our guide, Ari. After a short drive, we entered the desert and headed off-road.
The scenery was beautiful — tons of layered rocks, small caves, and salt deposits.
We drove through a dry river bed, with Mount Sodom on one side and the Badlands on the other.
Some of the cliffs — part of the Great Rift Valley — are more than 40 million years old.
We stopped at Wadi Pratzim. The view was amazing and I couldn’t resist the opportunity to take perfect jump photos!
The Judean Desert Jeep Tour was such a fun day trip during our time in the Dead Sea Valley. Here is a similar tour to the one we took. I would highly recommend it for anyone who is visiting this part of Israel.
