Itinerary / more information

  • Day 1 Welcome to Jordan! Bronze age ruins, a restored Roman theatre, art galleries & a Royal Automobile Museum, Jordan's capital city is a Middle Eastern metropolis of ancient and modern and the perfect place to begin our adventure. We'll linger here for a night and enjoy an included dinner to get to know each other.
  • Day 2 We'll enjoy a leisurely breakfast this morning before setting off, bound for a visit and lunch stop at the Treadright-supported Iraq Al-Amir Women's Cooperative Society on our way to the ancient Greco-Roman city of Jerash and Rose City of Petra. Here in Jerash, we'll uncover the Greek & Roman influences on this holy land, as a tour of the city sees us peruse Corinthian columns and ancient ruins. Arriving in Petra, our anticipation will be at an all-time high with the knowledge that tomorrow we'll be visiting the UNESCO World Heritage site that this city is famed for.
  • Day 3 Today is dedicated to uncovering the wonders of Petra - the magnificent ancient capital of the Nabatean Kingdom, where the hues of pink make us forget what era we're in. Once we're done taking pictures, we'll be awed a second time as our local guide briefs us on the city's history. Getting up close and personal with Pharaoh's Castle, the Triumphal Arc and the Treasury, we'll see just why this is the greatest attraction in the Middle East. After a full day of exploring, we'll head back to our hotel for an included dinner.
  • Day 4 All that cultural discovery of the past few days has us craving some chill time, and we'll find it in Wadi Rum. We'll leave Petra and embark on a journey through Jordan's largest and most stunning desert. Silent landscapes, ancient riverbeds and pastel colours will have us glued to the windows as we hop in a 4x4 for the full desert experience. Tonight, we'll be treated to a Special Stay overnight in the desert, complete with comfortable tents and dinner under the stars.
  • Day 5 Rested and in love with the desert, we're heading back to Amman today where we'll have a final night here in Jordan. We'll stop off for lunch here in Aqaba. With divine food, beachside bliss and sultry views of the Red Sea, you'll think you're in a movie... Suitably sun-kissed and utterly relaxed, we'll return to Amman, you're free to hang out with your crew or hit the hay, ready for more adventures on the morrow.
  • Day 6 It's been one incredible adventure, but all good things must come to an end. After a hearty breakfast, we'll say our goodbyes and swap details. We sense new adventures on the horizon!
