Why you'll love this trip
  • Only Petra’s Treasury is stunning enough to be the temple of the Holy Grail (well, according to Indiana Jones at least), and you’ll be blown away on two days exploring the majesty of this wonder.
  • Stop off at the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, where you’ll have a chance to float in its famously salty waters and soak up its healing minerals.
  • Sleep under the stars at a Bedouin-style camp with all the creature comforts, waking for a stunning sunrise and a thrill-seeking 4WD adventure.
  • Take a guided walk of Amman to learn about the city’s diverse history, and also to stake out where to get the best falafel.
  • Get a taste of the ancient and modern sides of Jordan with your enthusiastic and knowledgeable local leader, ready to answer every question and provide the best local tips.

Is this trip right for you?
  • It’s not all hot desert days in Jordan, as the winter months (December through 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 so that you’re prepared for varying temperatures if travelling during these months.
  • You’re the boss! Not just in general, but also on this trip, where there’s free time to do whatever you want, or optional tours to show you the way. Maybe budget a little extra cash for activities that aren’t included.
  • Unless you’re planning on doing some muscle-building on your holiday, we recommend not packing too much – you’ll need to carry your own bags from hotels, bus stops, train stations etc.
  • This trip spends two nights in Wadi Rum - which is a super cultural highlight, we hope you like sand?

Jordan was an amazing experience which I would recommend to anyone. What made this tour even better was our guide Mohammed who was so friendly and full of stories which made us laugh and fascinated. I would like to thank Intrepid and Mohammed for a memorable experience. -Sebastian.

We achieved so much on this trip and still came away feeling relaxed! Mohammad, our guide, was generous with his time and knowledge about Jordan and showed us to the local gems amongst the hustle and bustle. Highlights were the Jeep tour through Wadi Rum and the friendships I came away with.

This week in Jordan was the trip of a lifetime! From zooming through the Wadi Rum desert on a 4WD and sleeping under the stars, to exploring the marvellous ancient sights of Petra, to floating on the Dead Sea…you will constantly be in awe of your surroundings and the beautiful country that is Jordan. Big shoutout to Mohammad for being the BEST tour guide - he was so organised and knowledgable about all things Jordan! (His entertaining dinner table stories were an added bonus!)
