Add to Shortlist

Day 1 Amman

If arriving early, venture out to the Jerash ruins to soak up some history. Back in Amman, perhaps visit the National Archaeological Museum or head to the impressive Citadel for views over the city.

Days 2-3 Petra

Enjoy a buoyant dip in the salty Dead Sea - the lowest point on Earth. Travel to Petra to explore the spectacular site hewn out of rose-coloured rock. This ancient Nabataean city is one of the must-see places to visit in the Middle East.

Day 4 Wadi Rum

Full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, Wadi Rum will impress with some of the most sublime desert landscape on the planet. Spend a memorable night sleeping Bedouin-style in rustic camel-hair tents or head outside to fall asleep under a twinkling canopy of stars.

Days 5-6 Red Sea Beach Camp

Cross the sparkling Gulf of Aqaba, arrive in Egypt and make tracks to a seaside camp beside the glistening Red Sea. Scuba dive or snorkel through beautiful reefs, kick back on golden sands or join new Bedouin friends for a seafood feast. Whatever your choice of activity, the Red Sea is a magical place to lose track of time.

Day 7 Mt Sinai

Hike or take a camel to the summit of iconic Mt Sinai, Egypt's iconic site where Moses is said to have received the Ten Commandments. The 360 degree views of the surrounding landscape from the summit are spectacular. Also visit the beautiful St Catherine Monastery, nestled at the foot of Sinai where Moses is believed to have seen the famous Burning Bush.

Days 8-9 Cairo

The never-ending stream of life and noise makes Cairo fascinating to explore. In free time, head out to discover the Sphinx and Pyramids of Giza before catching an overnight train from Cairo to Aswan.

Nestled on the banks of the Nile, Aswan is a great base for exploration. Consider visiting a nearby Nubian village for a dinner of traditional delicacies and to enjoy the local swimming holes. A daytrip to the fascinating temples of Abu Simbel is also highly recommended.

Day 12 Nile Felucca

A Nubian crew provides food and song on this traditional felucca journey down the Nile. Watch river life in action and fall asleep on deck beneath the starry night sky.
