The Wadi Mujib River

Who's ready for some adventure? After a short journey we'll find ourselves in one of Jordan's most scenic areas: the Wadi Mujib River!

It is time to hike the Wadi Mujib, a river surrounded by a nature reserve with a majestic canyon. We'll be trekking against the current, clambering over the rocks (so let's 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!

Floating in the Dead Sea

And we're off to float in the Dead Sea to tick it off the bucket list! The Dead Sea water is ten times saltier than the ocean making it much more dense...sinking won't be an option but a rejuvenating natural mud bath could be!

Included: overnight stay, minivan with driver, local guide

Money Pot: admission fees (if any)

Not included: food and drinks

PLEASE NOTE: Wadi Mujib hikes are closed from October to March. For the departures between these months, the Travel Coordinator will organise alternative excursions.

Kerak Castle

It's an early start today because we will travel several miles towards Petra!

However, there will be chances to stretch those legs on the way, stopping by one of the many castles that dominate the picturesque scenery.

Kerak Castle is the second largest castle in the region and the most important crusader castle in the Middle East after the Syrian one. Ready to explore its fascinating history?

Little Petra

Siq al-Barid canyon is located a few miles from Petra and here we will admire architecture similar to the one in Petra, but smaller in size, hence the name of Little Petra. The atmosphere will immediately make us step back in time, with sculptures of ancient divinities carved from the stone.

For those in search of the perfect souvenir, now it’s time to wander around the stalls selling handicrafts made by the locals. Tonight we have a wonderful experience: a dinner at the Jordan Heritage, a non-profit association, where we will have the opportunity to immerse ourselves in local history, traditions and culture.

After that, we're off to the top of the Jebel Madbah and then down to see temples, tombs, a palace and a Byzantine Church, famous for its floor mosaics. The ancient Theatre boasts a capacity of around 3,000, whilst In the old Roman part of the city we'll be able to admire the Great Temple, dedicated to the Nabatean divinities, as well as the Qasr al-Bint ruins, the palace of Pharaoh's daughter and the medieval castle ruins.

Among all the unforgettable hidden gems the extraordinary Um Fruth Bridge stands out – it's a suspended rock bridge in the middle of the desert and one of the most photographed spots in the whole of Jordan. After such an intense and exciting day, it's time for a typical Bedouin dinner and a chance to stargaze while sleeping in a Bedouin tent in Wadi Rum. Will we spot any shooting stars?

From a panoramic viewpoint we'll get a bird's-eye view of the Roman Theatre, the main square with its fountain and the Odeon, an amphitheatre where live music is performed every night!

The other side of Amman

Jabal Amman is a modern district just a few minutes away from the centre. On our way there we will stop at the King Abdullah Mosque, the only mosque in the city that is open to visitors. Shopping in Amman is a must, and we can find goods ranging from international designer clothes to locally produced items like precious stones and metals.

Rainbow Street

This is Amman's most vibrant street! Why not spend the last hours in Jordan hopping from cafés to souvenir shops and have some fun!
