Summary of The Day: The adventure begins tonight! Arrive at the hotel at anytime and feel free to explore, but make sure you're back in time to meet the group. After introductions, your CEO (Chief Experience Officer) will review the details of your tour.
After learning more about the tour and plans for the following day, choose to head out for an optional dinner at a local restaurant with the CEO and traveling companions.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast, head north out of Amman to the lesser known region of Ajloun.
The most common image of Jordan is that of an arid land covered in desert, but we're quickly going to disprove that. his oasis in the desert boasts impressive natural beauty. Follow a trail surrounded by olive groves, oak trees, pistachio trees, and carob trees – there are a number of trails throughout the park's 13km (8 mi), which vary in difficulty. The trek is a simple walk, but good footwear is recommended.
Summary of The Day: Begin today with a short bus ride to Wadi Mujib, where we'll head off for an exhilarating canyoneering experience hiking the Mujib Canyon Trail, a wet trail involving abseiling and wading through streams in the Wadi Mujib. Enjoy spectacular scenery and a chance to see local wildlife.
From Wadi Mujib, continue the short distance to the Dead Sea. Here we'll discover the legendary healing qualities of the Dead Sea, famous for its unique mineral makeup and salinity. Spot salt chunks drifting by like icebergs on the water’s surface. Take a dip yourself and float like a buoy or cover yourself in the mud along the shore, believed to have medicinal and therapeutic benefits. There are showers nearby to wash off after.
In the winter (November-March) a dry trail is available called the Ibex Trail (3-4 hrs), and in the summer (April-October) visitors can hike a wet trail called Mujib Canyon Trail (4 hrs). These trails both offer spectacular scenery surrounded with very different conditions for canyoneering.
We'll spend the night at a spa hotel on the Dead Sea coast.
Summary of The Day: Another of Jordan's hidden gems, the Dana Nature Reserve is an oasis among the golden expanse of the desert. Take a guided walk through the reserve, following the Feathers Canyon Trail, which leads past Nabatean tombs to a breathtaking siq. Dana is a diverse environment containing a wide variety of plant life, including many that are endemic to the reserve. There are also several endangered species here to keep an eye out for.
From Dana,we'll transfer to Petra to spend the night.
Summary of The Day: Take the next two days to explore the site of Petra. First, we'll head over to Al Beidha, also known as Little Petra. This site is literally hidden away in a mountain and is a miniature version of Petra, containing a number of notable tombs. It offers a glimpse of Petra without the crowds.
After exploring this site, make the short trek over to Petra itself. The trail is approx 5km (3.1 mi) between the sites. The excitement builds when first glimpsing the Monastery from a vantage point high above the ruins of Petra. The rest of the day is free to explore the site, before heading back through the siq to the hotel.
Summary of The Day: After breakfast, have the morning free to visit Petra again. The site is large, but you can set your own pace depending on the weather and the interests of the group.
After the Nabatean ruins, we'll drive to Wadi Rum, a vast, silent landscape of ancient riverbeds and the largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes. There may be time this afternoon for a 4x4 trip into the desert.
On arrival, head to a comfortable tented camp at Dissah Oasis in Wadi Rum Desert. Enjoy a traditional meal for dinner and learn more about this ancient culture. Be sure to keep a look out at the night sky; the absence of city lights means that the opportunities for star gazing are really impressive.
Summary of The Day: Wake up to the untouched beauty of the desert in the morning. After breakfast there is time for an optional trek through the desert. Setting off from the camp, head to Khazaly Canyon and cross the Little Bridge and Lawrence Spring before returning to camp. In the afternoon there is time to relax at the campsite.
In the evening, we'll return to Amman.
Summary of The Day: Our week long adventure ends today as we say farewell and check out of the hotel.
