Day 1 – Arrival in Amman

Fly to Amman and transfer by coach to your hotel where you stay for one night

Day 2 – Wadi Rum

Depart early, heading south along the Desert Highway to Wadi Rum, the ‘Valley of the Moon.’ The breathtaking sandstone massif, famously described by TE Lawrence as ‘vast, echoing, and god-like,’ greeted us. Towering cliffs and stone formations rose from the red sands, creating a timeless monolithic landscape. Explore this stunning desert environment in 4×4 vehicles before settling into the Wadi Rum Space Village, a Bedouin-style camp. There, try a traditional ‘zarb’ barbecue dinner cooked beneath the desert sand.

Day 3 – Little Petra

Initially, visit the gathering place of immense caravans, some comprising more than a thousand camels, and then delve into the enigmatic rock-carved chambers of ancient ‘hotels’ at the site known as Little Petra.

Day 4 – Petra

Petra, a world-renowned treasure, once thrived as the epicentre of ancient caravan trade routes, rivalling even the Roman Empire. This city boasts opulent homes, elegant public buildings, and grand colonnaded streets.

As you walk through the increasingly narrow gorge, the Treasury suddenly emerges, a breathtaking sight with impeccable proportions and immense size.

Beyond the Treasury lies an entire city waiting to be uncovered: the Royal Tombs, the theatre, the Street of the Facades, the Great Temple, early Christian churches, and the central colonnaded road of this deeply cultured ancient city.

The afternoon is free, offering the option to relax at your hotel or continue exploring the site’s wonders.

Day 5 – King’s Highway & Mount Nebo

Heading north to the Dead Sea via the scenic King’s Highway,  follow an ancient caravan route offering breathtaking views of Jordan’s arid, rocky peaks. The journey includes stops at Shobak, a well-preserved Crusader castle, and Mount Nebo, where Moses glimpsed the Promised Land. You’ll also take a visit to Madaba, home to St. George’s Church, which boasts a remarkable 6th-century mosaic map of the Holy Land.

Day 6 – Jerash

Ancient Jerash, the ‘Pompeii of the East,’ is the largest and best-preserved Roman city in the region. Its grand colonnaded main street, forum, hippodrome, baths, and theater showcase remarkable Roman town planning.

In the afternoon, return to the hotel, where you can unwind and make use of the facilities or take a refreshing dip in the Dead Sea.

Day 7 – Return Home
