Our tour starts at Mount Nebo, a sacred mountain, where Moses was granted a view of Jericho and Jerusalem, which can be seen from here on very clear days. Mount Nebo features an old church that has been beautifully restored and welcomes visitors again since October 2016. You can still see the old ruins below the modern extension of the building. Inside you will find a great combination of the original building with modern architecture using steel and wood. The most stunning part is the well preserved Byzantine Mosaics featuring maps, patterns, and animals.

From Mount Nebo, we will drive towards Madaba for some time before making our turn towards the Dead Sea. We will pass small villages and cycle in a green area. As we are cycling towards the lowest point on earth, we will mainly go downhill and on-road. The tour takes us along one of the scenic routes between Madaba and the Dead Sea which includes many interesting curves and magnificent views with the Dead Sea Valley and Palestine. Enjoy feeling a warm breeze while cycling downhill to the lowest point on earth.

Once we are at the North tip of the Dead Sea, we will cycle a short distance on the road close to the Dead Sea. You will be able to see the quiet sea and Palestine. There is only a slight increase in elevation and the ride is not too hard. We end our trip with an open view there before heading back with the bus.
