This trip is for the 18 to 35 year olds

Discover one of the jewels of the Middle East with a week in Jordan – home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Kick off your adventure in Amman, where you can find hidden bars and delicious falafel, then head on to Wadi Rum to hike, watch the sunrise and explore the land in a 4WD. Witness the awe-inspiring site of Petra and soak away your worries in the Dead Sea. Head back to Amman’s satellite city of Madaba to end it all among beautiful mosaics. Your week-long journey takes you to the best places and gives you enough time to dive straight into the history, culture and delicious food that this region is known for.

Why you'll love this trip
  • Only Petra’s Treasury – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – is stunning enough to be the temple of the Holy Grail. Your pass to this sacred site lasts two full days so that you can explore every nook and cranny at your own pace.
  • See the lowest point on earth – the Dead Sea – and float in its famously salty waters, soaking up its healing minerals and lathering yourself in the rejuvenating mud (if the mood strikes).
  • Sleep under the stars at a Bedouin-style camp in Wadi Rum with all the creature comforts, waking for a stunning sunrise and a thrill-seeking 4WD adventure.
  • Take a guided walk around Amman to learn about the city’s diverse history (and also to stake out where to get the best falafel and hummus).
  • Get a taste of the ancient and modern sides of Jordan with loads of free time – just ask your knowledgeable local leader, who’s always ready to answer every question and provide the best local tips.

Is this trip right for you?
  • You’re the boss on this trip. There’s loads of free time to do whatever you want or optional activities to show you the way. With so much to see and do, Jordan can sometimes be expensive, so budget a little extra cash for activities that aren’t included.
  • It’s not all hot desert days in Jordan, as the winter months (December to February) can be quite cold. Temperatures in northern parts of the country can drop to freezing overnight. Snowfall around these areas, as well as Amman, is common. Pack smart to prepare you for varying temperatures if travelling during these months.
  • 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.
  • This trip is part of a longer itinerary. You might be joining travellers who have already spent some time together. If you have more time to explore, you might like to check out Real Egypt & Jordan.

Brendan · Traveled June 2024
I would highly recommend visiting Jordan and Intrepid’s Real Jordan Tour to anyone looking to explore the Middle East in a organised, group setting. I absolutely loved Jordan from start to finish; the culture, people and food, it was all incredible. The tour was well paced and included all the must see sights. Muhammed, our local guide, was very knowledgeable, personable, professional, funny and well organised, at no point we were left feeling unprepared, rushed or bored and he gave us a true Jordanian experience. I visited in June 2024 and felt safe and welcome from the time I arrived to the day I departed, visit Jordan!
