Helicopter Tour to the Dead Sea

Helicopter Flight to the Dead Sea

If driving by car to Masada seems too mundane, why not consider soaring above it? Departing from Tel-Aviv or near Jerusalem, you’ll have the opportunity to view Jerusalem’s Old City before heading east, where the scenery rapidly transforms into the rugged Judean Desert. During the flight, you may notice Bedouin settlements with tents and livestock. Next, the iconic Mar Saba Monastery will come into view as you fly through one of the canyons towards the Dead Sea.

Fly BENEATH Sea Level!

The scenery at this point is stunning, with the serene blue waters of the saltwater lake nestled between the towering mountain chain of Israel and Jordan. It’s important to remember that you’ll be flying below sea level but still high above the ground since the Dead Sea is significantly below sea level.

Tour Masada

These structures, designed in Roman fashion, are even more impressive from the air. If you want, it’s possible to land near Masada to explore the site.

Landing at one of the hotels for a dip in the Dead Sea and enjoying a lunch break is also possible.

Did you Know?

The Dead Sea is the only place in the world where one can fly BENEATH SEA LEVEL and land at the lowest dry spot on the planet (!)

Fly Back Through the Negev

Assuming the flight back concludes in Tel Aviv, you could return through the Beer-Sheva valley. You’ll fly over biblical landmarks like Tel Arad and Tel Beer-Sheva during the flight and later soar over the Shephelah. The vineyards dotting the rolling hills resemble a biblical Tuscany and will accompany you to the landing spot near Tel Aviv.

A helicopter flight to Masada and the Dead Sea is a breathtaking adventure that offers a unique perspective of Israel’s most stunning landscapes.
