A new initiative is now offering a unique experience –  a journey along the Dead Sea with all of its hidden mysteries.

The journey includes sailing and/or canoeing along the northern shores of the Dead Sea, where you can see and feel the mud deposits, salt pillar and water springs flowing to the sea. You will visit a salt icicles cave, and sink holes filled with fresh water. The tour is accompanied with explanations in English or Swedish language, and is suitable for tourists, lovers of nature and photography, film productions or research expeditions.

Activities can be tailored to the needs of the participants from one and half to 5-hour tours. A 48 hour reservation in advance is required.

The tour can take up to 12 people in a boat. Larger groups in kayaks up to 22 people or two boats and kayaks for up to 30 people. It is important to bring sunglasses, suntan lotion, shoes for water, bathing suits, change of clothes, towels, and drinking water.
