Canyon the hidden ravines and gorges of Wadi Mujib, as you fly down waterfalls and scramble across rocks. Veer off the beaten track by hiking a secret “back door” trail to the Rose Red City of Petra, and star-gaze at an award-winning lodge. Learn the art of Jordanian cooking and trek through the Dana Nature Reserve, passing Bedouin villages along the way. Cruise across the sand dunes of Wadi Rum in a fleet of jeeps, before glamping in the desert and joining a sunrise camel ride

 

Touch down in this parched terracotta landscape and prepare to embrace your inner Indiana Jones. Here the earth glows fiery red from the blazing sun, sandstone cliffs are carved into Wonders of the World and the mint tea never stops flowing. This week-long Jordanian whirlwind is full of bucket list experiences, from floating in the buoyant Dead Sea to admiring the Lost City of Petra in all its ancient splendour. We are getting beneath the sun-baked skin of this beautiful county, with candlelit voyages to the iconic Treasury, canyoning expeditions through the waterfalls and gorges of the Wadi Mujib and glamping beneath the stars in the lunar-like beauty of the Wadi Rum desert. Join us as we veer off the beaten path to discover the secret back door to Petra, trek through the vast wadis of Jordan’s largest nature reserve and track down the capital’s best falafel.  Prepare to saddle up for sunrise camel rides and chase across the reddened dunes in off-road jeeps. Get set to go off grid and gaze upon a shimmering night sky from one of the world’s leading eco-lodges, and explore the bustling side alleys of downtown Amman. You’d be forgiven for thinking you’ve stumbled across the set of a Hollywood blockbuster, yet this is Jordan and there is no CGI necessary.

Itinerary

Day 1: Jet Set to Jordan

Soak in the pace and bustle of downtown Amman, and marvel at the old-meets-new ambience of this dazzling city. Check into your hotel, meet your guide and say hi to fellow Flashpackers as they arrive

 

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 the capital’s downtown, where you’ll 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 floating in the Dead Sea

Canyon your way through the dramatic ravines and river gorges of Wadi Mujib, in a thrilling dose of adventure. Bond with your fellow Flash Pack pals as you heave each other over giant rocks, glide down waterfalls and leap across natural cliff pools. Reward your efforts by floating in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea and watching the sun go down

 

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. (Wondering how fit you need to be for a Flash Pack adventure? Find out more here). 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. Trust us, lying back in the lowest point on Earth is a truly unforgettable experience (albeit a bit salty).

Day 3: Hike through the desert and lie beneath the stars

Take a 14km hike through the Dana Nature Reserve, drinking in a remote and other-worldly landscape of sand dunes, pinkish valleys and vast open plains. Pass by Bedouin villages and stop for fresh mint tea and lunch around an open fire, before arriving at an award-winning candlelit eco-lodge. Lie out on the rooftop for a front-row seat to the stars

 

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 pit-stops and a fire-side lunch, you’ll arrive in Feynan where your jeeps await. Tonight we’re going off grid and staying at Feynan eco-lodge, a unique and award-winning retreat that’s powered by the sun. Expect hundreds of glowing lanterns and candles, hearty home-cooked food and an incredible starscape over the desert. Head to the rooftop for a glittering night-time performance.

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.

We take safety very seriously on Flash Pack adventures, click here to learn more.
