Touch down in this parched terracotta landscape and prepared to embrace your inner Indiana Jones. Here the earth glows fiery red from the sun, sandstone cliffs are carved into wonders of the world and mint tea never stops flowing. This week long whirlwind is full of bucket list experiences, from floating in the Dead Sea to admiring the Lost City of Petra in all its ancient splendour. We’re getting beneath the sun-baked skin of this beautiful county, with candlelit voyages to the iconic Treasury, canyoning expeditions through Wadi Mujib and glamping in the lunar-like beauty of the Wadi Rum desert. Prepare to saddle up on camels and to chase across reddened dunes in off-road jeeps, to gaze up at a thick blanket of stars and to explore the lively capital. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve stumbled across the set of a Hollywood blockbuster, yet this is Jordan and there’s no CGI necessary.

  • Visit the Ancient City of Petra and take in one of the new Seven Wonders of the World
  • Admire Petra by night, surrounded by 1500 glowing candles
  • Float in the buoyant Dead Sea
  • Go canyoning through the incredible Wadi Mujib
  • Explore the magical Wadi Rum desert by both camels and jeep
  • Hike through the amazing scenery of the Dana Nature Park
  • Spend a night off-grid hotel in an award winning ecolodge
  • Watch the magical sunset over the Dead Sea
  • Explore the hustle and bustle of Jordan’s capital, Amman
  • Glamp beneath the stars of the Wadi Rum desert

Itinerary

Day 1: Jet Set to Jordan

Step off the plane in Amman and prepare for an exotic eight day adventure. You’ll be met at the airport by your English speaking driver who’ll whisk you to your hotel. Today you can enjoy the chaotic labyrinth of it’s downtown where you will find a lively hub of ornate mosques, delicious mezze cuisine and earthy Roman ruins, welcome to the Middle East! Most flights get in late so we’ll hold off with the exploration, the real adventure starts tomorrow.

Day 2: Kickass Canyoning and Swimming in the Dead Sea

Enjoy that awesome feeling of waking up in a new country and prepare for a day of exploring. First up we’re heading to the ancient citadel of Amman before leaving the capital behind for the breathtaking canyons of Wadi Mujib. Here you’ll be hiking, climbing and sliding through its towering sandstone canyons and hidden gorges. This beautiful setting will then get even more spectacular upon reaching a large waterfall plunging into the parched surroundings. Depending on the amount of rainfall, here you can dive into the cool waters and enjoy its natural obstacles, waterslides and plunge pools. The adventure then continues to the Mujib Biosphere Reserve, where you’ll be staying in peaceful chalets with uninterrupted views of the iconic Dead Sea. This striking landscape is an Instagram lover’s dream, yet we’re not merely snapping the scene but getting in it. This evening we’ll be swimming, or rather floating, in the buoyant Dead Sea. This shimmering sea is slowly disappearing so now is the time to go and trust us, lying back in the lowest point on Earth is a truly unforgettable experience (albeit a bit salty).

Wake up in your peaceful surroundings and enjoy breakfast with killer views of the Dead Sea. Today we’re heading to Jordan’s largest nature reserve, Dana Nature Park, which is 320 square kilometres of stunning mountains and vast wadis. Such awesome scenery deserves a good ol’ trek, so you’ll set off on a 14km hike through this beautiful reserve. Keep your eyes peeled for the rare forms of flora and fauna as you descend through four different bio-geological zones. Then, after plenty of mint tea pitstops, you’ll arrive in Feynan where your jeeps await. Tonight we’re going off grid and staying in unique ecolodges powered by the sun. Expect glowing lanterns, hearty home cooked food and star lit skies.

Important notes

Fly into and out of Amman International Airport (Queen Alia International Airport)

Flights into Jordan can arrive at rather unsociable hours, so don’t worry if your flight arrives at around midnight on day 1 as you’re likely not be the only one and this is why we have no plans for day 1 of the adventure.

Hotels in Jordan are not quite as flash as we would hope so this adventure sees you stay in a variety of comfortable city hotels and characterful properties with amazing views.

Canyoning in Wadi Mujib is a seasonal activity which is only open from 1st April to 31st October. For tours that miss out on this awesome adventure we have another plan which includes seeing Mount Nebo and the ridiculously warm waterfall at Ma’in Hot Spring, for more information please give us a call.

Temperatures can get quite low during the winter, especially in the mountains or in the desert at night so do remember to pack a jumper! 

Please be aware that the itinerary, activities and hotels are subject to change. These changes can happen with little notice due to availability, poor weather, seasonal changes, or other circumstances beyond our control. From time to time we may also make changes to your itinerary to try out new ideas and keep things fresh.
