Suggested itinerary

Day 1
The Dead Sea

You will be greeted on arrival in Amman and transferred to the Dead Sea for an overnight stay.

At 400m below sea level, The Dead Sea is the lowest point on Earth, and one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world. Spend the remainder of the day recovering from your flight floating in the therapeutic waters of The Dead Sea, the high content of salt and minerals being world renowned for its health benefits.

Day 2
Petra

Today you will make your first stop at Mount Nebo. Visit the memorial church of Moses with its impressive mosaics and enjoy the views out over the Dead Sea and into Israel. Next visit the mosaic town of Madaba to see the 6th Century map of the Holy land laid out in the floor of the church of St George. Continue south to the Rose City of Petra.

The church at Mount Nebo has a typical basilica design and features a beautiful mosaic-covered floor. The rock underneath, it has been discovered, is hollowed into six tombs. Mount Nebo also features a Cross Serpentine sculpture, symbolising a serpent and Christ’s crucifixion, as well as offering views of Jordan’s surrounding landscape.

The Greek Orthodox Church of Saint George at Madaba, which you will visit next, is home to the 6th century map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land, made entirely from mosaic – 2 million pieces of local stone, displaying towns, villages, hills and valleys. Only rediscovered in 1894, it has since been brilliantly restored.

Day 3
Wadi Rum

This morning, explore the ancient carved city of Petra. Your guide will take you through the Siq to the Treasury before leading you through the city to the Roman Theatre, stopping at the various tombs carved into the cliffs and introducing you to the many highlights of the city. This afternoon, drive to Wadi Rum, also known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’. Take a 4x4 jeep tour before spending the night in a desert camp.

Given the popularity among foreign visitors today, it is hard to believe Petra remained forgotten by the outside world until 1812, when it was re-discovered by the Swiss explorer, Johann Burckhardt. Imagine his emotions when, after being led down the twisting, narrow defile deep in the desert, he first set eyes on the finely sculpted tombs and temples of the Nabataean kings who ruled here in the 3rd century BC.

Your tour takes you next to the natural landscapes of Wadi Rum, home to monolithic rocks, some of which reach 1,750 metres high, water holes, and canyons. The vast expanse of land is tranquil, unspoilt by modern development, and is inhabited by the Bedouins who maintain a nomadic lifestyle.

Day 4
Amman

Drive back to Amman this morning for a city tour. Visit King's Abdullah Mosque, the Islamic Museum and Amman’s downtown with its souks, coffee shops, churches and mosques. Spend one night in Amman.

The multicultural city of Amman has been inhabited by many civilisations through its long history and is ideal for exploring traditions of the Middle East. To dig deeper into the history of the region, we recommend visiting some of the many galleries and museums, as well as the Neolithic settlements and Bronze Age tombs.

For those looking to buy local produce and traditional handicrafts, head to the souks, dazzling with an array of handmade jewellery, whilst the modern-day boutiques juxtapose them.

Day 5
Amman

Transfer to Amman International airport for your onward journey.
