Day 2: Amman - Petra

This morning tour the citadel of Amman, the Archaeological Museum and enjoy free time shopping in the local souq before visiting Mt Nebo - the single most important biblical site in Jordan. It's from here that Moses finally saw the Promised Land. Soak up the excellent views before we visit Umm ar Rasas, a haunted deserted city on the ancient caravan routes. Large mosaic floors from two of its dozen or more churches have been painstakingly cleaned and protected. Once sightseeing is concluded we proceed to Petra.

Day 3: Petra

Chief among Jordan’s many archaeological riches is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Rose City of Petra. We access the hidden archaeological treasures of the Rose City on a walk through a narrow, deep siq, where the rocks finally give way to reveal the famous facade of Al-Khazneh (the Treasury). Continuing our walk, we’ll go on to explore chunks of this fantastic once-lost city which is full of tombs, temples, an impressive amphitheatre and a Roman colonnaded street. The intrepid can ascend the hundreds of rock-cut steps to Ad-Deir. Better known as the Monastery, Ad-Deir has a similar facade to that of the Treasury, but is far bigger and the views from the nearby cliff-tops are awesome.

The deep reds of the Treasury

Day 4: Petra - Wadi Rum

There's the this morning chance to revisit Petra indeependently before our afternoon drive to Wadi Rum. A vast, silent landscape of ancient riverbeds, pastel coloured sandy desert and amazing rock formations (jebels), Wadi Rum represents some of the most stunning countryside on the planet. Boarding 4x4 jeeps, we take a safari through the sand dunes before arriving at our desert camp, home for the night and where you'll enjoy a traditional Bedouin dinner.
