Day 2: Visit Jerash and float in the Dead Sea
This morning we drive north to Jerash, known as Gerasa in ancient times. This was one of the ten wealthy, self-governing cities of the Decapolis during Roman times, and was famous throughout the Roman world for the luxury of its lifestyle. Buried for centuries under blown sand, Jerash is the only city of the Decapolis to have survived, with a dramatic oval forum, colonnaded main streets which remarkably have the drains still intact, two theatres and the impressive temple of Zeus.
Day 3: Drive down King's Highway to Petra via Mt Nebo, Madaba and Kerak
Today is a long driving day down the King's Highway which takes us up and down huge 'wadis' (valleys). There are several stops of interest en route including Madaba, known as the city of the mosaics, Mt Nebo and Kerak, which is a magnificent fortified town. Further south we reach the magnificent city of Petra; Jordan's premier historic site and one of the world's most outstanding ancient cities.
Days 4-5: Two full days to explore the expansive sights of Petra
On one of the days we take a walk to the High Places which only few people attempt to visit. This can be quite arduous and is not recommended for those who are unsure of their fitness. However, those who do make it to the top are rewarded with wonderful views over parts of the site visited on the previous day.
Day 6: To the Wadi Rum desert; 4WD excursion and overnight in a Bedouin camp
We join our Bedouin guides for a 2-hour 4x4 trip to explore the highlights of the protected area. Towards the end of the day we return to our private camp, located near the small village of Disseh where we enjoy traditional Bedouin hospitality and may have the chance to sleep out under the stars.
Day 7: Morning in Wadi Rum; desert drive to Aqaba; free afternoon to relax or optional snorkelling over the coral reefs of the Red Sea
We wake amidst the dramatic desert scenery and then make our way on to Aqaba, Jordan's port and holiday resort, famous for beautiful coral reefs. There is time to relax on a local beach with transport and entrance included. You can add to the experience with optional snorkelling and lunch packages which your leader will explain.
Day 8: To Amman; citadel tour and free time
Leaving the Red sea behind we will head to the Dead sea which is one of the most fascinating places on earth.
