Travel to Jordan and take a bike tour of Petra and Wadi Rum
Travel to Jordan and cycle through the ancient sites of Madaba, Mt Nebo and one of the world's most spectacular sights - the 'Rose-Red City' of Petra. Away from the temples and monuments, ride through quiet villages and ancient olive groves, meeting some Bedouin people along the way. Experience the peculiar weightlessness of floating in the Dead Sea, and snorkel in the biblical waters of the Red Sea to relax and unwind. Most relaxing of all is the night spent in Wadi Rum, the former headquarters of Lawrence of Arabia. Here the solitude, majestic desert scenery and incredible night skies ensure a memorable evening of stargazing.

Hewn out of the rose-coloured rock face, the ancient city of Petra is one of the Middle East's most spectacular destinations.
Blessed with idyllic beaches and world-class dive spots, the resort town of Aqaba is Jordan's seaside playground and a fun place to chill out.
Full of weird and beautiful lunar-like rock formations, Wadi Rum is home to some of the most sublime desert landscape on the planet.
Amman has served as the modern and ancient capital of Jordan and today historic sites such as the Citadel offer an insight into the city's intriguing past.
