Itinerary

Plan your tour!

Arrive at the King Hussein Airport close to Aqaba(AQJ), where we will meet you, assist with immigration and then transfer you to your hotel.

 

Aqaba is a small city in the very south of Jordan, nowadays mainly famous for some of the most beautiful diving and snorkeling grounds in the world. Due to her location at the northern tip of the Red Sea, the city has however been (and still is) of great economical and strategical importance for the region for hundreds of years.*

 

Meals included: –

 

Overnight in Aqaba.

 

*Depending on your arrival and departure times, go for a boat ride, either today or on day 4. Relax on the sun deck, jump into the water, swim, snorkel, and enjoy a delicious BBQ.

You will have an early morning transfer from Feynan Ecolodge to Little Petra. Enter Petra via ‘The Back Door’ avoiding most of the tourists. Good tracks go pleasantly down Wadi Ghurab, amidst sandstone mountains guarding the approaches to Petra. This way follows a Nabataean route out of the valley and skirting round the final mountain on a natural rock terrace which has been ‘improved’ for the safety of walkers. Even so, it still narrows slightly before reaching a hidden plateau high above the impressive chasm of Wadi Siyyagh.

 

Just beyond, carved into the cliff face, ‘The Monastery’ suddenly comes into view, where there is a Bedouin café for refreshments. Nabataean steps then lead down into ancient Petra, from where your route takes through to Nabataean steps then lead down into ancient Petra. Your route then takes you through Wadi Muthlim, a narrow canyon (weather dependent), to your hotel accommodation in Wadi Musa, the modern town adjacent to Petra.

 

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

 

Overnight in Petra / Wadi Musa.

In the early morning, after breakfast, you will head back into ancient Petra. This time, you will enter through the ‘Siq’, a 1km long narrow gorge which is flanked either side by 80m high cliffs! Notice the dazzling colors and formations of the rocks. Once the gorge opens, you will stand in front of ‘the Treasury’, Petra’s probably most famous structure. Take some time to take in the magnificent building. From there, set out to discover more of the massive world heritage site, such as some of the many elaborated rock-cut tombs, a Roman-style theater, temples, the sacrificial altar and colonnaded streets.

 

Later on this day we will transfer you to Wadi Rum, where you may (time permitting) enjoy a beautiful sunset. Then get a taste of the famous traditional Bedouin hospitality, and spend a memorable night under millions of stars.

 

Meals included: Breakfast, Lunch

Overnight at a Bedouin Camp in Wadi Rum.

After enjoying breakfast with a fantastic view, we will take you on a jeep tour through the desert scenery to the foot of Jabal Umm ad-Dami. The ride takes around 1-2 hours, depending on your camp’s location.

 

Jabal Umm ad-Dami (jabal means ‘mountain’), at more than 1,800 meters the highest peak in Jordan, offers you a whole new perspective of the desert from its summit. To the south you can see the border to Saudi Arabia, to the north Jabal Rum and Wadi Rum Village. According to your ability, climbing to the summit and back to the desert floor takes approximately three hours. Once you arrived back to the foot of the mountain, enjoy a simple lunch cooked in the shade of the mountains.

 

We will then transfer you back to Aqaba.
