We take a thrilling 4WD safari into Wadi Rum, the desert where much of ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ was filmed. And we travel to the Dead Sea, 400m below sea level, for a relaxing float in its exceptionally salty water.

Early departure for a tour of the ‘Rose-Red City’ of Petra, entering the city on foot. This ancient city lay beneath the desert sands for centuries, and was only rediscovered in 1812. The highlights are the spectacular temple, the Treasury and the Monastery which have been hewn out of solid rock.
Day 6: Petra - Wadi Rum - Dead Sea
This morning we depart for the desert of Wadi Rum, stunning in its beauty and inhabited by the Bedouin tribes, it epitomises the romance of the desert.
