The final point of this journey is Jordan’s only exit to the sea – the city of Aqaba, where you can admire the rich variety of flora and fauna of the Red Sea.
10 – 12 hours
On the day of your arrival, we will meet you at the exit from the airport of Amman and take you to your hotel, where you can relax before the start of the exciting journey the next day.
On the second day after breakfast, we will start our day with a sightseeing tour of Amman. We will visit the Citadel, where you will see the ruins of 3 different eras and enjoy a panoramic view of the capital. In downtown we will stop at the Roman theater, built in the 2nd century, then head to the modern parts of the city to visit the Royal Automobile Museum (closed on Tuesdays), which displays the classic cars of the late King Hussein. Another option, in the same area, we will stop by the Children’s Museum, the only one of its kind in the entire Middle East.
After this exciting day, you will return to your hotel for an overnight stay.
In the morning of the 3rd day we will drive you to one of the three great Roman cities (along with Petra and Palmyra, located in the Syrian desert) – Jerash (ancient Gerasa). Its colonnaded streets, exquisite oval forum, three theaters, two temples and 15 early Byzantine churches make such a stunning impression that the city is called Eastern Pompeii.
We will continue our journey to the Dead Sea – the lowest point on Earth, which contains more salts and minerals than any other sea.
Here you can float on the sea surface, smear yourself with silky mud rich in healing minerals, used not only as a valuable medicinal product, but also as a natural cosmetic ointment and enjoy life-giving oxygen and calming bromine in the air around the see.
We will spend this night at the Dead Sea.
On the 4th day, closer to noon, we go to the city of Karak, rich in unique monuments of past centuries.
We will visit the Crac des Moabites castle of the Crusaders, which was built in the first half of the 12th century. It is a large and very complex architectural complex with many towers, halls and passages. The fortress is located on a small hill, so from some areas you can take excellent panoramic pictures of the city and the coast.
Then we will continue our journey to Petra – the ancient capital of the Nabataean kingdom, carved right into the rocks more than 2 thousand years ago.
Here we will spend the night and gain strength for the coming morning.
Today after breakfast we will visit one of the wonders of the world, which is under the patronage of UNESCO – the ancient city of Petra. Millions of tourists come here to see the rocky city with their own eyes.
The place is impressive as it is impossible to believe that it was created several millennia ago.
The name of the city of Petra is translated from Greek as “rock”, and it is not surprising – after all, the ancient city consists entirely of stone. Petra is also called the “pink city”, because at sunrise and sunset, the rocks really shine with a scarlet and pink hue.
A professional guide will tell you about the history of this wonderful place for 2 hours and will gladly answer all your questions. The rest of a couple or three hours in Petra you will spend at your discretion, and then we will have lunch at a local restaurant.
After a delicious lunch, we will drive to the Wadi Rum desert.
This delightful place is unique in its kind, as the local unusual landscape has not been touched by human civilization. Here you can walk under the miraculous rocky arches and look at the bizarre sculptures that water, wind and sun have painstakingly created for millennia, try to climb one of the rocks with the help of climbing equipment, arrange a hike, and admire the most picturesque petroglyphs and rock drawings that are more than four thousand years old.
We will check into a Bedouin camp, take a shower and relax before a delicious dinner, and then enjoy the beautiful starry sky and the absolute silence of the desert.
Day 6 begins with a delicious breakfast that smoothly flows into a sightseeing tour of the desert. On our today’s 2-hour Jeep trip we will explore Wadi Rum, famous not only for its red-orange Martian landscapes, but also for the historical events of the Arab Uprising of 1916-1918. Briton Thomas Edward Lawrence stayed here for some time, helping the rebellious Arabs to fight against the Turks.
A seven-time Oscar winner movie “Lawrence of Arabia”, describing the events of those days, was filmed in this desert in 1962. The desert of Wadi Rum Desert has served as the setting for Hollywood films such as Transformer, Red Planet, Last Days on Mars, The Martian and many others.
There is something for everyone here: a physically fit traveler will get a great pleasure from climbing to dizzying heights, while an ordinary tourist can simply contemplate the panorama of pristine nature with its rocky mountains and sand dunes.
After the tour, contented and happy, we will return to the Bedouin camp to pick up our luggage and go to Aqaba on the Red Sea, where we will spend the next 3 nights.
Today after breakfast we will take you to the diving center where you will be given a short lecture on safety rules. After fitting your gear, we will sail to one of the most impressive coral reefs in the Red Sea to enjoy a rich underwater world with colorful fish, flat stingrays and branched porous coral reefs.
Your 2 scuba dives in the warm, vibrant & light depths of the Red Sea will go hand in hand with a licensed instructor.
Those of you who have not mustered the determination to dive into the depths of the sea can admire the exotic from the surface of the water and for this we will provide you with masks and fins.
At the end of diving and snorkeling, we will bring you back to your hotel.
After these tiring activities, there is nothing better than having some soothing time at Jordan’s only seaport, Aqaba. Relax at the beach or try one of the water activities, including diving, snorkeling, and glass boats. Enjoy the rich marine life and experience the breathtaking Red Sea. Spend the night the at hotel.
On day 9, after having breakfast, you will be transferred to Amman Airport to catch your flight and head to your next destination.
