Explore Jordan and visit Petra, Amman and Wadi Rum
Looking for something to do over the Christmas break? Why not visit Jordan and marvel at a fascinating mix of modernity and ancient wonders. Live it up in the cosmopolitan city of Amman, explore Jordan's mystic desert landscapes in Wadi Rum, visit the stunning ruins of Petra and trek to the remote hilltop village of Dana on this enriching and exciting tour of Jordan. With cultural gems, ancient artefacts and warm hospitality waiting around every corner, Jordan is an enthralling and magnetic land to visit.
Spend a whole day uncovering the majesty and mystery of the world wonder of Petra. The first glimpse of the Treasury from the narrow path of the Siq is unforgettable
Experience the best weightlessness this side of outer space with an effortless float in the super-salty waters of the Dead Sea
Hop in a jeep and experience the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains
Meet Bedouin locals, learn about their ways, and sleep under the stars in a desert camp in the far-out destination of Wadi Rum
There is quite a bit of walking involved in visiting Jordan's historic sites, especially in Petra and Wadi Rum, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Most of the time there is no shade so remember to bring a hat, sun protection, and sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.
Winters can get quite cool, so if you're visiting at this time, don't forget to pack some warmer layers too.
The desert camp in Wadi Rum is basic but incredibly memorable. There are tents and shared western bathroom facilities. Please be aware that while the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night and warm clothes and a sleeping bag is highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.

This was a great itinerary which gave a fantastic look at Jordan in a short time. The people are friendly, the country is beautiful, and the history is impressive. And our guide made it even more amazing by sharing his love of Jordan with us. Would love to go back.

Christmas / NYE in Jordan - a life changing experience. If you are fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit this beautiful country DO IT! I have experienced the hospitality of the friendliest people, travelled with 11 independent women (and one man), ate the most amazing food & learned from a passionate & knowledgeable leader. Thank you Intrepid!
