Discover lost cities on a family adventure in Jordan. From the capital Amman to the ancient city of Jerash, rose coloured Petra, Wadi Rum desert and the Dead Sea.
Days 1-2 Amman/Jerash
Start this family adventure in Jordan’s exciting capital, Amman. With time to spare, why not head out on foot to unravel some of the country’s history?

Day 3 Madaba/Kerak
Travel along the Desert Highway to Madaba, where Muslim and Christian places of worship sit side by side, amid Byzantine 6th-century mosaics set in the ground like giant jigsaws. Stop by Mount Nebo, believed to be the final resting place of Moses and spot Bedouin tents on the horizon. Finally, explore the shadowy dungeons and hallways of Kerak Castle, which sits high above a desert valley.

Venture out into the vast expanse of Wadi Rum desert, where sandstone cliffs shimmer on the horizon. Enjoy a 4WD tour through this mind-boggling landscape, stopping to marvel at ancient rock inscriptions, before spending a peaceful night camping among the dunes.

Day 6 Aqaba
Travel to Aqaba on the Red Sea Coast for some fun, sun and relaxation. Perhaps go snorkelling in the warm, shallow waters, take a long walk along the shoreline or simply kick back by the pool.
ACCOM: Hotel - 1
Days 7-8 Dead Sea
Head further north today along King’s Highway today, keeping an eye out for nomadic shepherds, to the Dead Sea. Be amazed at the density of the water, which allows your body to float effortlessly, and feel rejuvenated by the healing mineral properties the sea is famous for. On the final day, your tour will end at your Dead Sea resort after breakfast, last chance to splurge yourself in all theses highly beneficial salty minerals from the Dead Sea.

Jordan Family - Journey to the Lost City, April 2014
My 13 year old daughter and I loved every day and thought the guide Sam was excellent. He tried very hard to make adults and kids happy and made sure we were all safe and on time each day. Each day had something new and exciting to do and all the experiences will stay with us for a long time.
