Bethany & the Dead Sea
Departure at 8:30 AM
Round trip Transportation
Departure from your Amman hotel for the Jordan Valley. Bring clothing suitable to enter a religious building as well as for bathing.
Today, we travel down to the world’s lowest point. First, we visit the place that archaeologists believe was where Jesus was baptised by John the Baptist. At Bethany beyond the Jordan, you will see the excavated baptismal site, the church of John the Baptist and will be able to dip your toes in the River Jordan. From there we travel the short distance to the Dead Sea. At 427 metres (1,400 feet) below sea level, the Dead Sea’s shores are Earth’s lowest elevation on land. With salinity levels of 34%, over nine times more than the world’s oceans, floating on your back is the best and easiest option as your body will not sink into the water enough to swim on your stomach. The waters of the Dead Sea have therapeutic and curative qualities that work wonders for the skin and your feeling of well-being. The resort has an excellent restaurant overlooking the water. Enjoy an delicious meal in this extraordinary setting between dips and mud sessions on the beach. The resort has an excellent spa centre where at your own expense you can choose from a large menu of spa treatments. After a very enjoyable day in the lowest spot on Earth, in the late afternoon, we take the vehicle back to your Amman hotel. L.
