Finjan Pop Up: Hiking & Swimming in the Dead Sea

This day hike will take us through the diverse landscapes of the southern Judean desert, starting with the black flint of Tamrur cliff, to the edge of the mighty canyon of Nahal Bokek with its jaw dropping 180m dry waterfall.

The trail will take us to the high cliffs surrounding the Dead Sea with stunning views of the southern basin of the Dead sea, we will descend to the oasis of Ein Bokek with the ancient Bokek ascent to the fresh water springs and the nice pools inside the canyon.

Time permitting we will finish the day with a swim in the Dead Sea at Bokek Beach
