Experience the unique sensation of floating in the Dead Sea on this half-day private tour from Amman! Travel with a private driver to the lowest point on Earth, and enjoy free time to ‘swim’ in the shimmering, salt-rich waters. Lie back and read a newspaper in the classic Dead Sea pose, lounge on the sands and wonder at the spectacular desert landscapes around you. Upgrade to enjoy the additional facilities and, if you wish, the wellness treatments (own expense) of the Dead Sea Spa Hotel for the ultimate experience!
Start your experience in the morning with a pickup from your centrally located Amman hotel. Board your air-conditioned vehicle and travel south with your private driver through the arid landscapes and mountains of Jordan.

Your destination is the Dead Sea, a vast expanse of water sitting at around 1,312 feet (400 meters) below sea level — the lowest point on Earth. Its waters have a high salt and mineral content caused by the evaporating waters of incoming rivers, so when you ‘swim’ you float! Due to these high levels of salt and minerals, the waters are known for their curative powers and their mud and minerals are used in an array of therapeutic treatments.

Book a standard tour, and when you arrive, your driver will drop you at the beachside Dead Sea Beach Rest House. Enjoy time at your leisure to relax on the sands and float in the shimmering waters. Don’t forget to recreate the classic Dead Sea pose of reading a newspaper while you bob in the waters!

Alternatively, upgrade your tour and spend time at the Dead Sea Spa Hotel where you’ll find a great range of facilities. Get time free to float in the waters, laze on the beach and enjoy the hotel’s outdoor swimming pools, showers, sunbeds and towels. Or head for the hotel spa to indulge in any of the Dead Sea treatments on offer (own expense), such as a soothing massage or invigorating mud pack.

When the time comes to leave, rejoin your vehicle and head back to Amman. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.

Very fun and interesting. Recommend combining this trip with a visit to the Jordon river where Jesus was baptized. It is very close.
