Visit Bethany beyond the Jordan, the place where Jesus of Nazareth was baptised, and bathe in the Dead Sea on this unforgettable tour from Amman.
Bethany & Dead Sea Tour
On the day of your excursion, we'll pick you up from your hotel in Amman and set off in the direction of Bethany, located on the banks of the Jordan River. This pilgrimage destination on the border with Israel is home to a number of churches from different branches of Christianity. Known as Jordan beyond the River, this is the place where John the Baptist baptised Jesus Christ.
We'll visit the archaeological ruins of the historic Byzantine churches that were built here in celebration of the sacred place, and we'll see the exact spot where Jesus of Nazareth was baptised. We'll even head down to the Jordan River so you can touch the waters of this important place for Judaism and Christianity.
Continuing our day trip, we'll travel to the south in the direction of the Dead Sea, located more than 1,400 feet (430 metres) below sea level. Here, you'll have free time to bathe in the lake and see if it's true that it is impossible to sink in its waters due to the high concentrations of salt. Don't forget your swimsuit!
After this unique experience, we'll head to a local restaurant near the beach to enjoy lunch (not included), before setting off on our return journey to hotels in Amman.
