The Dan Hotels to Eilat Bike Tour: From Mountains to Desert
From sacred Jerusalem through to the beautiful Negev scenery to the shores of the breathtaking Red Sea, the Dan Active Winter Escape will take you from Jerusalem to Eilat. We will kick off with two wonderful days spent in Jerusalem, including bike tours through the four quarters of the Old City and other fascinating cultural and historic sites. A third day will take us from the pine forests surrounding the city to the incredible natural landscape of the rolling hills and Judean desert, exploring ancient caves dating back over 2,000 years.
Then we’ll bid farewell to Jerusalem after three delightful nights spent at the wonderful King David / Dan Panorama Hotel. Next, we’ll spend an extraordinary day at Masada, and then take a refreshing and healthy (yet salty) swim in one of the world’s wonders - the Dead Sea, the lowest natural point on Earth. Afterwards, we’ll set off for Eilat, where we’ll check into the pampering Dan Eilat / Dan Panorama Eilat Hotel and enjoy a relaxing evening.
Our first day in Eilat will be spent exploring the city, visiting both the Egyptian and Jordanian borders and enjoying the golden beaches. The next day, we’ll tour the region, including beautiful natural and archeological sites, and an amazing scenic ride. On the final day, we’ll say goodbye to our luxurious hotel, and begin to travel northwards – with a stop at the natural and unique wonder of the Ramon Crater, followed by a ride to an ancient Nabatean stronghold and visit to the memorial to Ben Gurion, one of the founding fathers of the State of Israel. Then, we'll board the bus back to the airport.
