From Petra travel into the desert at Wadi Rum by jeep and experience one of the most spectacular desert landscapes in the world.
Spend the night in a Bedouin camp and enjoy a spectacular sunset.

Day 1: Fly to Amman
Fly from the UK to Amman where you will be met and transferred to your chosen hotel with the rest of the day at leisure.
Overnight Amman. Breakfast included.
Day 2: Ajloun
After breakfast, enjoy a city tour of Amman, the capital of the Hashemite Kingdom.
Often referred to as the “White City” because of the white stone used to build houses, Amman offers a contrast between oriental and cosmopolitan. The tour will take you to the museums, the Citadel, the amphitheater, the souks and the modern part of town.
From Amman head to the north of Amman (about 45 minutes) to the best preserved example of Roman civilization, the city of Jerash.
Jerash, part of the Decapolis (the ten big Roman cities of the East) has been called the Pompeii of the East for its unique state of preservation.
From Jerash proceed to the Saracen castle at Ajloun. This 12th Century castle was built by Saladin in his successful campaign to drive the Crusaders from Jordan in 1189 and is an outstanding example of Arab/Islamic military architecture.
In the late afternoon, return to Ajloun Cabins for overnight.
Set amongst dense highland forest of evergreen oak, olive, pistachio, carob and wild strawberry the Ajloun Nature Reserve is a perfect overnight location for families.
With both guided and self-guided walks you can try the easy Soap-Makers’ Trail, which leads to the Soap House, a crafts project employing local women and where you can buy hand-made soap.
Overnight Ajloun. Breakfast & Lunch included.
Day 3: Madaba - Munt Nebo - Dana
This morning visit Madaba, known as the City of Mosaics. Here you will see the oldest map of the Holy Land on the floor of Saint George’s Church
After Madaba, a short drive will bring you to Mt. Nebo, the supposed burial site of Moses overlooking the Jordan Valley and the Dead Sea.
From this mountain top Moses supposedly had his first glimpse of the Holy Land, a land he was never allowed to enter. Here Franciscans built a structure that protects 4th and 6th Century Byzantine churches.
Set in the flagship reserve of the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, the Rummana campsite is one of three accommodation options in the reserve.
The Rummana campsite is perfect for families and the white canvas Bell tents are equipped with mattresses and blankets. The campsite enjoys spectacular views and opportunities for guided, and self–guided walks including the three hour trail to the Dana Guest house, an easy walk with no rises or falls in terrain.
Overnight Dana. Breakfast included.
Day 4: Petra
After breakfast, depart on a full day tour of Petra. Once the ancient Nabatean capital, this city gently reveals itself as you walk through its hand-carved facades.
Starting at the visitors centre, you will be assigned a horse, guided by a local Bedouin who will lead you to the once hidden entrance to the lost city.
After passing some tombs which are located outside the city, the visitor passes through the siq, an immense crack in the Nubian sandstone.
It is a winding, one-kilometer-long fissure between overhanging cliffs that seem to meet more than 300 feet overhead.
Near the end of the passage, the siq, with great style, makes one last turn and out of the gloom in towering brightness appears Petra’s most impressive monument, el Khazneh - The Treasury.
This is one of the most elegant remains of antiquity, carved out of the solid rock from the side of the mountain and is nearly 140 feet high and 90 feet wide.
Beyond el Khazneh the visitor is surrounded on both sides by hundreds of Petra’s carved and built structures, soaring temples, elaborate royal tombs, a carved Roman theater, large and small houses, burial chambers and much more.
The Victorian traveller and poet, Dean Burgon, gave Petra a description which holds to this day - “Match me such a marvel save in Eastern clime, a rose-red city half as old as time.”
Return to your hotel in Petra for overnight.
Overnight Petra. Breakfast included.
Day 5: Petra - Wadi Rum
Return to Petra for an unguided morning visit if you wish. Revisit the siq, treasury or perhaps head directly to the High Place of Sacrifice.
You will then transfer to the magical desert of Wadi Rum, with its associations with Lawrence of Arabia.
On arrival, take a jeep tour managed and driven by one of the local Bedouin to many of the sites in the moon-like landscaped desert. Start from the visitor centre and drive to Rum village about a 10-minute drive on paved roads.
After this head into the ochre coloured sandy desert as you visit the sites of Rum. Visit Lawrence’s spring and continue to Khazali Canyon an iconic feature in Wadi Rum.
Khazali Canyon is an easy 20-minute walk that allows you to see many Nabatean inscriptions and drawings. Following a visit to Rum’s majestic sand dunes, head to your Bedouin Camp in the desert for overnight, once of the highlights of this journey.
Overnight Wadi Rum. Breakfast included.
Day 6: Aqaba
Wake up in the serenity of the desert and enjoy breakfast on the rocks with undisturbed views of Wadi Rum stretching for hundreds of miles.
After breakfast transfer to the coastal city of Aqaba, Jordan’s gateway to the Red Sea, famous for its warm water and rich marine life.
Aqaba’s vibrant fringe reef and crystal clear waters make it the perfect spot for snorkelling and for those who prefer to experience the coral from the comfort of a glass bottomed boat.
Being Jordan’s only port city, Aqaba also has a thriving souk and an abundance of local and tourist restaurants.
Overnight Aqaba. Breakfast included.
Day 7: Aqaba - UK
After breakfast proceed along the Dead Sea Highway, for the beautiful drive through the Wadi Araba desert and passing the banks of the Dead Sea.
As you descend to 410 metres below sea level you will notice the change in both temperature and landscape.
The Dead Sea Panoramic Complex/Dead Sea Museum is a new complex of regional museums about the Dead Sea region, history and geology.
The museum is run by the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature and has some fascinating information about the geology, ecology (animal and plant), archaeology, history and industry of the Dead Sea and surrounding area.
Watching the sunset from here is a wonderful experience. Transfer to Mujeb Chalets for overnight.
The Chalets are built on the Madash Peninsula and offer the only view of the Dead Sea with both an East / West and North / South perspective. Each of the 15 chalets has an uninterrupted sea view with a shaded terrace. Access to the Dead Sea and the fresh water showers is for private use of those staying here.
Overnight The Dead Sea. Breakfast included.
Day 8: Dead Sea - UK
Transfer to the airport in Amman for your flight back to the UK or to your next destination.
