Trip Itinerary

Day 1: 3 hours Tour from Amman to Petra

 The first day of the tour is started by departing to the South of the kingdom to Petra, the Nabatean Red Rose city which is also considered as one of the wonders of the world. This city that is at a distance of 139 miles or 225 kilometers from Amman is carved in stone more than 2000 years ago to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Here you will be visiting the towns, dams and water channels.

 The tour is started by walking through the Siq which is a narrow path of three quarters of a mile i.e. 1.2 kilometers and is the main entrance to the city. You will also find the treasury called “Khazneh” (by local people) at the end of the Siq. The first view of the “Khazneh” is incredibly spectacular. You will also find various other monuments while walking through the main trail that include the Amphitheater, the Royal tombs, the Great Temple complex, the Temple of the Winged Lions and Qaser Al Bint. After all this you will move towards Wadi Rum.

Day 2: Petra - Wadi Rum - Aqaba city - Dead Sea

 On the day 2 you will be driven from Petra to Wadi Rum. Wadi Rum, also called the valley of moon is the location where the movie Lawrence of Arabia was filmed. Here you will spend the night in a Bedouin camp, have dinner along with enjoying some night activity. Then the next day after having your breakfast we will provide a short visit of Wadi Rum in a 4 X 4 jeep. Wadi Rum is a massive mountain that is uniquely shaped and rose amongst the rosy red sand of the desert with towering cliffs of brownish, reddish and golden colors. After which we will be moving towards Aqaba City (which is skipped during winters). Then we will be heading towards the incredible Dead Sea that sits 400 meters below sea level. Dead Sea is known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Amora which were turned into salt. Dead Sea, the name is justified by the fact that no living fish can be found here! It is one of the most impressive and magnificent places to visit within Jordan. The calm shining water glowing due to the scorching sun above is rich in salt and minerals which makes it a therapeutic experience. Swimming in Dead Sea is something that must not be missed.

Site Highlights:

Petra - The Pink City

 Petra, the capital of the Nabataean Arabs is one of the most renowned archaeological sites in the world that is located 240 km south of the capital Amman and 120 km north of the Red Sea town of Aqaba. Petra is also one among the wonders of the world and hence is the most valuable treasure and ultimate tourist spot in Jordan. There is no precise information when Petra was built but it is known that the city began to prosper as the capital of the Nabataean Empire from the 1st century BC that grew rich through trade in frankincense, myrrh, and spices.

Wadi Rum – The Valley of the Moon

 Wadi Rum is a valley that is cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southern Jordan 60 km to the east of Aqaba. It is the largest Wadi in Jordan. The term ‘Rum’ originates from an Aramaic root that means ‘high’ or ‘elevated’.
Gulf of Aqaba - The Red Sea

 Aqaba, the seaside town is located on the Red Sea within the sight of Saudi Arabia and Egypt. Although Jordan has only 26 kilometers of coastline but they are put to good use. Below the Red Sea waters you will find some of the most fantastic dive sites in the world. Aqaba is also known as a base camp for travelers wishing to see Wadi Rum and Petra.

The Dead Sea

 The Dead Sea is located in the Jordan Valley which is a part of the Great Rift Valley that runs from East Africa to Turkey. The Dead Sea is the remains of a giant inland lake named Lake Lisan which was 200 kilometers long and about 200 meters deeper than that of the current level of the Dead Sea. As the Lake Lisan contracted, Lake Tiberias and the Dead Sea were left behind which are at 408 meters below sea level (and is the lowest point on the earth).

 The sea contains about 20% of salt which is eight times the level of the world’s oceans. And this concentration contributes to the amazing buoyancy of the water and is a legacy of years of evaporation. The only life forms available in the Dead Sea are the eleven species of bacteria. As the water is rich in minerals, including calcium, magnesium, bromine, iodine, and bitumen, it provides various healing properties that help in alleviating or easing allergies, skin rashes, bronchial irritations or glandular conditions. Tourists from all over the world come here to ease or cure their conditions at the medical treatment centers at the Dead Sea. And even people who feel stressed and bored can enjoy the high quality spas in the area. Due to the depth of this location the climate and quality of sunshine in the Dead Sea area is highly beneficial and the salts and mud of Dead are well known for their beneficial properties.
