After a day getting acquainted, you’ll head to a unique lodge on the Dead Sea to hike the nature reserve on its banks and float in the strangely salty water. Afterwards, there’s time to savour desert sunsets and star-spangled skies in one of the world’s most incredible eco-resorts, lost in the Dana Biosphere Reserve. Travel onwards to Petra for our access-all-areas exploration, which includes touring the UNESCO site by day and by candlelight, overnighting in a cave in Little Petra (as the Bedouin once did) and joining a Bedouin family for dinner. There’s time for a night in a desert camp amid the dunes of Wadi Rum, before enjoying a relaxing few final days in the laid-back resort of Aqaba, on the banks of the Red Sea.

Day One: Hello Jordan

Touch down at Alia Amman airport and a private car will be waiting to whisk you away to your hotel, ready for your first night in Jordan.

Overnight in Amman

Deluxe: Hotel Le Grand Amman

Meals included: None 

Jordan


Day Two: City to sea

Get to know Jordan’s charming capital on a morning’s exploration with your private guide. There’s a huge amount to see here, from the Roman citadel and theatre to St Georges Church, home to the oldest map of Palestine in the world which takes the form of a Byzantine mosaic. Afterwards, you’ll be driven to Mount Nebo, the dramatic ridge that was mentioned in the Bible as the place where Moses saw the Promised Land. Enjoy incredible views over lunch in a restaurant on the mountain. Next, you’ll take a private transfer to Wadi Mujib Chalet Hotel, set in the Mujib Biosphere Reserve, the lowest nature reserve on Earth on the banks of the Dead Sea. These simple chalets have hypnotic views over the tranquil water and are the perfect place to share an incredible sunset. Guided hikes, zip-lining and rock climbing can be arranged by the hotel for a surcharge. Finish your day with a traditional dinner cooked over an open fire.

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day Three: Hikes and healing mud

Start your day with a hike at the Wadi Mujib Canyon, where hidden gorges, silent pools and waterfall slides combine on the thrilling Siq Trail. Trek through miniature rapids and slide down rock faces on this three-hour trip: depending on rainfall, you may even find pools deep enough to swim in en route. Afterwards, you’ll take a private transfer to the Dead Sea for some well-earned relaxation. Float in its surreally salty waters or slather yourself in its health-giving mud, before enjoying dinner at your hotel.

Overnight at the Dead Sea

Deluxe: Movenpick Dead Sea Resort

Meals included: Breakfast, dinner

HIllss


Day Four: Desert delights

Bid the Dead Sea goodbye as you transfer to the breathtaking mountains of Dana Biosphere Reserve set along the Great Rift Valley. Home to 449 species of animals and birds – from kestrels to chameleons – the reserve is home to vast, empty landscapes that beg to be explored. You’ll be checking in at Feynan Eco Lodge, lost at the end of a rugged track deep in the reserve. Lauded by the press as one of the world’s best eco-lodges, the resort comes with candlelit courtyards, comfy rooms and excellent vegetarian cuisine. During your overnight stay, you can choose one complimentary optional activity from those on offer in the resort: you might like to help light the hundreds of candles which illuminate the lodge by night; stargaze from a roof terrace mattress as bedouin guides help you navigate the skies and spot Saturn and Jupiter with a powerful telescope; or join one of the lodge’s guides for a sunset stroll to the top of a gentle outcrop for knock-out views of a spectacular sunset. Take it all in with a mint tea in the cool breeze, as life continues busily in the Bedouin camps below. You can also book a cycling excursion at minimal costs (see Extras tab for details).

Day Five: Cave dwelling

Spend the morning with the Bedouin, finding out more about their lives as you learn cooking skills and how to apply khol make-up, before joining a shepherd to milk a goat. After lunch, you’ll journey onwards to Petra for a night in extra-special accommodation – one of Little Petra’s caves, carved thousands of years ago as dwellings. You might like to join an optional Petra By Night experience in the evening, wandering the incredible rock city by candlelight for an unforgettably magical introduction to this UNESCO World Heritage Site (for related costs, see the Extras tab). Afterwards, settle down for a night sleeping as the Bedouin once did. Dinner, drinks, blankets and mattresses are provided, and your guide will remain with you for your memorable stay.

Meals included: Breakfast, dinner

Day Six : Incredible Petra

After your first glimpse of Petra yesterday, it’s time to properly explore one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. After breakfast, your private guide will take you to the ‘back door’ of Petra, allowing you to see the city in the reverse direction to most other visitors. Hike the back door route to the Monastery, one of Petra’s largest carved facades, then take in incredible views and the fascinating but rarely visited snake tomb, before passing the Colonnaded Street, Theatre and Street of Facades. You’ll finish up at the Treasury, the most iconic and photographed monument in the complex. In the evening, you’ll have the privilege of joining a local Bedouin family for dinner in Amarin Village in Little Petra, as they share their songs and stories with you.

Overnight in Little Petra 

Deluxe: Bubble Luxotel Petra

Meals included: Breakfast, dinner

Day Seven: Towards Wadi Rum

Bid Petra goodbye: you’re bound for the red desert of Wadi Rum, where Lawrence of Arabia was famously filmed. Start your exploration of its undulating sands with a camel trek from Wadi Rum Village to Lawrence’s Spring, the head out on a Jeep excursion to explore the area’s dunes and natural bridges, stopping for lunch along the way. Later, you’ll make for the desert’s highest accessible point to watch the sun tumble into the sand during a spectacular sunset, before stargazing underneath its unpolluted skies. Return to your camp for dinner and performances from an Oud player and a storyteller.

Overnight at Wadi Rum

Deluxe: Memories Aicha Luxury Camp

Meals included: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Day Eight: Resort life

After breakfast, you’ll transfer to the laid-back resort town of Aqaba, on the banks of the Red Sea. This is a lovely, laid-back place to end your holiday with a couple of days of pure relaxation. To get you in the mood, we can arrange a variety of optional activities today: you might like to play a round of golf at the fantastic new Ayla Golf Club; soothe your muscles with a spa treatment at the Movenpick Tala Bay; or spot birds in the wetlands of the Aqaba Bird Observatory. (For related costs, please see the Extras tab).

Deluxe: Movenpick Tala Bay

Day Nine: To boat or not to boat?

It’s another free day in Aqaba today – perhaps you might take the opportunity to dive offshore, relax on the beach or grab some retail therapy in its lively shops and souks. Alternatively, we can arrange a serene lunch cruise on the Red Sea, complete with snorkelling stops (for related costs, please see the Extras tab). Afterwards, you’ll be dropped at Berenice Beach, where you can try watersports including windsurfing, kite surfing, diving and jet skis at extra cost.
