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.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Animal Care in Egypt. Donations help them care for sick or injured working animals, like horses and donkeys, and help empower local communities with the knowledge and training to better care for their animals.

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 was an incredible trip! Obviously with things going on in the region you'd be inclined to worry about coming to Jordan but be rest assured, Jordan is completely safe. I have been to many countries and felt far safer in Jordan than in 90% of the places I've visited. Tour guide Mohammed was amazing and made the trip truly unforgettable. I would highly recommend this experience. Wadi Rum desert in the winter is a bit rugged and accomodations could be better but it's part of the charm here

The perfect trip! Our tour guide was so knowledgeable, kind and friendly; he quickly became part of the group! This was such a special, bucket list trip. If you’re thinking about it, just go for it!

This trip was wonderful. We felt so safe in Jordan, and it is a beautiful country. The trip is well paced, and everyday was an adventure. Wadi Rum is particularly special. Our tour guide, Mohammad, made everything easy and enjoyable and was able to answer our many questions. Can’t recommend enough!!

The trip was extremely well paced and well organized. I felt safe the entire time, and got to see and do so many amazing things I otherwise likely wouldn't have been able to experience. Our tour leader Mohammed was phenomenal in every way – he had a vast knowledge of Jordanian culture and history, was friendly and engaging, kept everything organized for us, and went above and beyond to assist us even when unanticipated situations arose. Jordan is a safe country, and crowds even at Petra were minimal to none. There is no better time to come see this stunning country. Jordan is the 12th country I've visited across 4 continents and has earned my #1 spot. Seeing the milky way, Camel riding at dawn, taking photos where The Martian was filmed, hiking through rugged mountains, and of course Petra itself, I will never forget my time in Jordan!

This was a truly incredible trip. Due to what's happening in the region, it's natural to be apprehensive but I felt totally safe in Jordan. The lack of tourists even meant we got to enjoy places like Petra in full serenity. The Wadi Rum desert was an incredible thing to experience and so was the dead sea. This is my favorite tour of all time. Do yourself a favor and don't try to lump this in with Egypt. This is a tour worth doing on it's own and spending a full week in
