Journey through Jordan on an 8-day Premium adventure and discover a land of desert treasures and altruistic people. From the soaring facades of Petra to the lowest lows of the Dead Sea, the sunrise colours of Wadi Rum and the ancient ruins of Jerash, Jordan’s landscapes impress at every turn. But beneath its striking exterior is its people – full of heart and deep-rooted tradition. Learn the secrets of Jordanian cuisine with a mother and her daughters, immerse yourself in Bedouin culture during dinner at their camp and travel with a local leader who will illuminate the magic of their country.

Your leader will adjust the itinerary accordingly, but please consider this when selecting your travel dates.

Jordan is a fascinating country with a rich history which is remarkably well preserved. Our Intrepid trip provided us with highlights of the culture, food, people, history and incredible sights.

The Trip was perfect, it covered most parts of jordan main sights, leader was perfect, accommodation was super & the food was tasty. The Wadi Rum part has a magical effect to clear your mind. Communicating with your past in Petra is a way to discover a lot about yourself. The Trip overall was a massive mind blowing, the diversity of places/nature/culture involved was great, the itinerary was rich & interesting & varies from culture to fun to beaches. Zaher our tour leader was such a great knowledge, knew how to take care of everybody & enjoy our time together, he teach us about each Jordanian traditions/clothes/lifestyle/history & culture, the places he chose for local meals were perfect, & he knew how to manage the itinerary timing in a perfect way, I'd love to come back. Hany our driver was very professional & always on time. The Jordanian Kitchen cooking class was a highlight, Wafaa keeps everybody involved & the food was the most tasty meal i has ever got.
