Drive east towards the Dead Sea and then south along its western shore. Your first stop is Metsoke Deragot (stepped cliffs), offering a variety of extreme sports activities, safari, jeep tours and rappelling. (Must be prearranged; for more information see: http://www.metzoke.co.il/English.aspx).
Continue to the oasis of Ein Gedi where you can enjoy a choice of hikes. The short trail will take you into Nahal David (the David riverbed), the longer trail to Nahal Arugot (the Arugot riverbed). Both hikes offer plenty of shade, water and small pools where you can stop to cool off.
End the day at one of the spa hotels along the shores of the Dead Sea and pamper yourself by choosing from among the variety of treatments based on the water and the unique combination of 21 minerals of the Dead Sea.
