Get ready to be wowed by the sweeping desert of Wadi Rum, the hidden, hand-hewn facades of Petra and the ancient Roman ruins at Jerash on an 8-day journey through Jordan. Watch the sunset from your Bedouin camp, snorkel in the coral-clad Red Sea in Aqaba, float in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, traverse the narrow gorge of Siq in Petra and marvel at the unforgettable revelation of The Treasury.

Why you'll love this trip
  • You’ll never forget your first glimpse of The Treasury in Petra. Spend a day taking in the majesty and mystery of this unforgettable place on a guided tour then enjoy free time to explore.
  • Experience the unique sensation of floating in the super-salty waters of the Dead Sea, then cover yourself in the mineral-rich mud for a spa treatment like no other.
  • Be welcomed into a local home in Petra where you’ll chat to your friendly family hosts over a traditional meal and learn what life is like in this popular spot.
  • Meet Bedouin locals, learn about their ways, and sleep under the stars in a desert camp in the far-out destination of Wadi Rum.
  • Relax in the seaside town of Aqaba on the shores of the Red Sea relax around its untouched reefs and transparent waters – a spectacular spot for snorkelling.

Is this trip right for you?
  • Some of the best scenery in Petra and Wadi Rum is found on hikes. While this trip doesn't require a high level of fitness, it’s essential to be at least moderately fit if you want to participate in all activities.
  • At most of the historical sites in Jordan there is no shade. 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.
  • In Wadi Rum we stay in a permanent tented camp with shared bathroom facilities. While the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cold at night and warm clothes are highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.
  • Ramadan is an annual month-long festival, during which travel can be a rewarding cultural experience, however some regular services may not be available during the day, such as restaurants or cafes, and occasionally travel can be disrupted by events. Your leader will adjust the itinerary accordingly, but please consider this when selecting your travel dates. You'll find dates and further information in the 'Climate and seasonal information' section of the Essential Trip Information.

Great experience. Would be very difficult to achieve this level of organization, coordination and number of sites is only a week. We'll worth the time. I met some great people too.

This was an amazing 7 days trip, to discover a wonderful country that is Jordan! Humble and very empathic people, amazing landscapes and nature, natural pieces of art. A perfect destination to disconnect from work and from the daily worries. Everything is an highlight, incl Petra, Amman, Jerash, Wadi Rum desert, snorkeling in Aqaba. There are many other treasures to explore, but those will await for a next opportunity. Our guide Mohamed Momani was the cherry on top of the cake, excellent, very enthusiastic, professional, honest and funny! Totally the person you need to make your experience 5 stars! I totally recommend!

Mohammad is the best leader - ask for him as your guide! He will teach you all about the history of this land and the sites. The itinerary and pace were excellent. There was a lot of free time to relax and many meals to enjoy together as a group. Highlights include Petra and the Dead Sea. Bring your walking shoes because there is a lot of walking!
