Judean Desert to the Dead Sea Ride

Judean Desert to the Dead Sea Ride
South Israel

A desert wilderness once home to bears, leopards and fugitives. The turquoise Dead Sea, shimmering in white light. Vineyards, orchards and olive groves on fertile hills. Hidden caves guarding the secrets of the ten tribes of Israel.

The Kingdom of Judah beckons the brave to hear its tales. The Judean Desert is unique with its powerful, barren beauty of stream beds created by winter rains, steep cliffs, cisterns and hidden caves, and amazing wildlife. Lovers of history and horseback riding alike will be thrilled by the challenge of these horseback riding vacation. You will explore the land of the Tribe of Judah, delving deep into the bloody history of the Israelites. These tours tell the story of the Essenes and the end of the revolt against the Romans in 70 AD. Living a communal life devoted to poverty, purity, freedom, and justice, the Essenes had their chief residence along the shores of the Dead Sea. In fact, some believe Jesus and John the Baptist were members of this elusive community. This tour takes you on a thrilling ride through the mysterious history and breathtaking beauty of the Judean Desert.

For the young at heart and the serious adventurer, this special trip lives the wild Israeli desert – exploring the wilderness during the day and camping under the starry skies at night. This trip includes a tour of Qumran and a visit to a spa on the shores of the Dead Sea as a finale.
