Day 3: Petra

Access to the Rose City on our guided exploration is through the famous narrow, deep siq. The rocks then give way to the most amazing site – that of the impressive Treasury. Walking down the gravel tracks, we’ll explore the ancient Nabatean tombs and the Roman rock-carved streets. The more intrepid can ascend to Ad Deir, better known as the Monastery.

Day 4: Petra - Wadi Rum

A chance to revisit Petra 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 4x4s jeeps, we take a safari through the sand dunes. Tonight, we enjoy a Jordanian dinner.
