Dead Sea

It is an early start to make the most of the day, and you're off to go float in the Dead Sea to tick off that bucket list. The Dead Sea water is ten times saltier than the ocean making it much more dense, and as a result people swimming in the water that are less dense in comparison are more buoyant. Sinking won't be an option but a rejuvenating natural mud bath could be!

Mujib Nature Reserve

Let the adventure begin! It is time to hike the Wadi Mujib, a natural reserve that flows into the Dead Sea. You will be trekking against the river current, clambering over the rocks (so be prepared to get wet) until the grand finale....a dip in the impressive waterfall! There are several routes of varying difficulty, so the group can decide what works best for them together 😊

Included: a minivan with driver.
Money Pot: local guide and admission fees if any
Not included: food and beverages
Note: Wadi Mujib hikes are closed from October to March. For the departures between these months, the Travel Coordinator will organize alternative excursions.

Kerak Castle

It is an early start today because today you will walk several kilometers towards Petra! Kerak Castle is the second largest castle in the region and, after the Syrian one, is the most important crusader castle in the Middle East. It was considered virtually impregnable, the most strategic place of the country. Its European, Byzantine, and Arabic styles, make it one of a kind.

Little Petra

Siq al-Barid is located a few miles from Petra, where you will find the structures similar to the architecture in Petra, but smaller. The atmosphere takes you back in time, thanks to the ancient divinities depicted in the stone. Now it’s time to discover the handcrafted stalls, souvenirs and local products made by the Bedouins, Petra here we come!

The ancient Theater boasts a capacity of around 3,000! In the old Roman part of the city, you can admire the Great Temple, dedicated to the Nabatean divinities, Qasr al-Bint ruins, the palace of Pharaoh's daughter and the medieval castle ruins.

From the Visitor Center, you are off to explore the desert of Lawrence of Arabia by Jeep. Khazali Canyon is one of the most unique places of the Wadi Rum rocky desert. It’s a canyon, also known as Siq, where the inner walls are covered with numerous Nabatean inscriptions and carvings. The extraordinary Um Fruth Bridge, a suspended rock bridge in the middle of the desert, is one of the most photographed spots in Jordan. After an intense day, it will be time for a typical Bedouin dinner, a chance to star watch in the evening (shooting stars are often spotted), and then you will be sleeping in a Bedoiun tent for the night.
