The short trip will take you to Jordan’s most fascinating attractions, learning about its history, culture & its people. Giving you the unmatchable experience of connecting to earth’s nature in Wadi Rum by stargazing strait into the milky way & at the lowest point on earth by floating on the world’s saltiest body of water. If you wish to visit in a short period of time Jordan and have an authentic Middle Eastern experience, look no further.
●arrival time (depends on your flight): You will be awaited at Queen Alia airport by our representative who will safely transfer you within 3 hours to your hotel in Petra and you might assist to Petra’s night show (available Monday, Wednesday & Thursday), a fascinating sight to be a part of.
●7am: Enjoy your breakfast at your hotel in Petra.
●First Things First! Go on an adventure thru the Petra Seeq (canyon) either on foot or you can choose to enjoy a short horse ride until you reach “Al Khazneh”, known to be one of the seven wonders of the world, which is a 45m high Treasury carved into the red mountain rock by the Arab Nabateans more than 2000 years ago.
●Your journey will then continue to your last stop in south of Jordan, to the most impressive deserts in the world and get to see the naturally multi-colored canyons, towering sandstone mountains and dunes of Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon & made famous for being used as a background setting for numerous films (“The Martian”-2015, “Rogue One”-2016, “Aladdin”-2019, just to name a few…).
●Finally, you’ll reach the Wadi Rum Bedouin Camp, located inside the protected area, where you can sit back, relax or even meditate, away from the city noise.
●You’ll end your day with a barbecue dinner & your accommodation for the night will be in Wadi Rum.
●7am: Enjoy your breakfast at Wadi Rum.
●After a 3-hour drive, you will reach your first stop at Mount Nebo, where you’ll get to have a view over the Jordan Valley, the hills of Jerusalem & the Dead Sea.
●You will then go on a mosaic tour till you get to Madaba, a city known for the mosaic map of the Holy Land, dating back to the 6th century AD, preserved in the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George.
●You will then be driving toward the lowest point on Earth, so you can enjoy a stress-free day, floating in the saltiest body of water in the world. The Dead Sea is known to be Earth’s lowest elevation on land (-430.5m) and the deepest hyper-saline lake in the world (salinity= 342g/kg). Its harsh environment does not permit the flourishment of any plant or animals, on the other hand it has extremely healthy & beneficial properties which attracted visitors for thousands of years (the Egyptians needed asphalt from the dead sea for the mummification process for example) and today it will supply you with natural mud that you can spread on your skin putting any skincare lotions to shame (PS: be careful not to splash Dead Sea‘s water in your eyes…. it’s salt:).
●At the end of the day you’ll be returning to your hotel in Amman.
●Departure time (depends on your flight): You will be transferred to the Airport for your departure.
