Detailed itinerary

❤️ ✈️ 🌍 

Day 1: We arrive to Amman airport where a car awaits to take us straight to the lowest point on Earth. We wash off our travel fatigue in the incredible waters of the Dead Sea, float for as long as we want and watch sun fall into calm sea waters.

Day 2: We have a free morning in the Dead Sea to relax after our long flight, then set off to drive on the ancient highway, King's Way, that takes us through some of the lowest valleys and the highest plateaus of the southern Jordan. We stop by Karak castle, a remnant of the crusaders from the 11th century and take in the sweeping panoramas surrounding the area. We arrive to Dana Nature Reserve, Jordan's largest natural biosphere, just in time for dinner under a million stars. 

Day 3: We spend the morning hiking through the Dana Nature Reserve, stopping for occasional sage tea breaks, letting herds of rowdy goats pass us by, and practicing our landscape photography skills! We then set off to The Lost City of Petra, an ancient kingdom of the mysterious Nabateans. 

Day 4: We get up early because today we will take a special hiking route from Little Petra to the Monastery in Petra. Back roads that at times will be nothing more than a ledge will open up to sweeping vistas of this incredible mountain landscape. Prepare to be awed at every turn. We then return to the hotel for rest because tonight, we will have a special treat of witnessing Petra by Night - a breathtaking event when Petra shines with a light of a thousand candles...

Day 5: Right after breakfast we head to the desert! We get into our 4x4 and drive several hours deep into Wadi Rum, passing whimsical landscapes of sand dunes and stone. We have lunch in the desert and get ready to find the best spot for sunset amid the dunes. When it gets dark, we retreat to a bedouin camp and stay up until 2 am (optional 😊) to catch the incredible star show with Milky Way and other galaxies in attendance.

Day 6: Today we return to the city life. It's time to experience Amman, an incredible megapolis full of bustling souks, soulful mosques, and modern hi-rises. We visit the ancient Citadel with breathtaking views of the city, the Roman Theatre, Old Downtown, Rainbow Street, and the Darut Al Funun Art Gallery. We have farewell dinner together before we go back to our respected homes.

Day 7: We leave Jordan (transfer to Amman airport included) and prepare to miss it as soon as the plane takes off. ❤️


If Jordan is on your bucket list, this is the trip for you. What are you waiting for?
