Below is the itinerary for the holiday. Please click each day for more information.

Saturday 14th March

Today we depart for Aqaba and arrive late afternoon.

Overnight in Aqaba. Dinner included.

Sunday 15th March

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before enjoying a free day in Aqaba. This beach destination has plenty of activities if you want to get out and about, but you can also relax on the beach if you wish to do so. If delicious food is your thing, take advantage of the local markets and stock up on fresh pistachios, almonds and cashews for the rest of the trip.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Aqaba.

Monday 16th March

Today we transfer to Wadi Rum, the Valley Of The Moon. Here we’ll find adventure and feel the romance of the Arabian Desert. This moon-like landscape consists of ancient valleys, deep dry ravines and towering weathered sandstone mountains rising out of white and pink coloured shifting sands. We’ll visit the most spectacular sights of Wadi Rum and then enjoy dinner and the rest of the night under the stars at a traditional Bedouin camp.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Aqaba.

Tuesday 17th March

After breakfast at the camp we’ll enjoy a traditional coffee lesson before heading to Petra, one of the new seven wonders of the world. Abandoned centuries ago, Petra is cut out of the rock and, according to Indiana Jones, is the final resting place of the Holy Grail. Approached through a deep, narrow gap in the rocks, Petra emerges into the light which for many is an overwhelming experience. Our guide will take us through some key parts of the site and let us know more about the history of this fascinating place.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Aqaba.

Wednesday 18th March

Today we leave Petra and head for Little Petra, which is like Petra but the rock carvings are generally in more open spaces and the atmosphere is a little more relaxed and quiet. We’ll then travel to Shobak Castle, a place built in 1115 by King Baldwin the first of Jerusalem. This was to guard the road from Damascus to Egypt and was the first of a string of similar strongholds in the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem.  The castle’s exterior is imposing as the walls circle three layers thick, most of which are still reasonably intact. One of the most fascinating remains of this building is an ancient well-shaft with 375 steps that lead to a water supply at the bottom.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Amman.

Thursday 19th March

For the next few days we’ll be based in Amman, Jordan’s capital city. We’ll take a tour which will show us the city’s unique blend of old and new, from the traditional coffee shops and artisan workshops to the ultra modern buildings, smart restaurants and art galleries. Almost half of Jordan’s population live in this city due to its modern day prosperity, but we’ll also discover that the residential suburbs consist of tree-lined streets and uniform white houses which are all faced with local stone. On our tour we’ll visit the ancient Philadelphia, the Citadel, the temple of Hercules, the Roman Theatre, the Nymphaeum and the Umayyad Palace.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Amman.

Friday 20th March

From Amman today, we venture for a full day tour of the North Of Jordan. We’ll drive 45km through pine forests and olive groves to Jerash where we’ll visit a dairy farm that makes local cheese and produce. We’ll also enjoy a guided tour of Jerash, which is usually called the Pompeii of the east, to visit the oval plaza area, theatres, colonnaded streets, the Temple of Artemis and Zeus, and a complex of churches. Our next stop of the day is the mighty castle of Ajloun, an Islamic fort built on a hill with impressive views of the Jordan Valley below.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Amman.

Saturday 21st March

Today, enjoy a free day in Amman to explore the city in your own time.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Aqaba.

Sunday 22nd March

We leave Amman today to journey to The Dead Sea via Mount Nebo and Madaba. Mount Nebo was the place where Moses viewed the promised land of Canaan before he died and was buried in a nearby valley. We’ll visit the tomb of Moses, the ruins of churches whose floors are still covered with marvellous mosaic floor.

We’ll then follow the footsteps of Moses to Madaba, a place famous as a land of mosaics which is only a 10-minute drive away. This town has a long history and it was first mentioned in the bible when it was a Moabite town.

Our last stop of the day is the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. This body of water is devoid of life but contains an extremely high content of salts and minerals. These natural elements give the water its curative powers and also provide the raw materials for the renowned Jordanian Dead Sea bath salts and cosmetic products. Of course, no Dead Sea experience is complete without swimming in it, so there’s free time for swimming, floating and relaxing here – it’s a weird sensation at first to be floating in this water but you’ll get used to it!

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight at Dead Sea.

Monday 23rd March

Our final full day take us from the Dead Sea to Kerak where we’ll visit one of the finest examples of Crusader military constructions, Kerak Castle. The walls of this structure are strengthened with rectangular projecting towers and long stone vaulted galleries with a deep moat which completely isolates the site.

Our journey will then take us back to our starting point of Aqaba for our final evening in Jordan.

Breakfast and dinner included. Overnight in Aqaba.

Tuesday 24th March

We transfer to Aqaba Airport today for our flight home. We hope you’ve had a great holiday in Jordan!

Breakfast included.

A single room comes with a £300 supplement and is subject to availability.

Visa information:

You’ll need a visa to enter Jordan. You can get a single entry visa valid for 1 month on arrival at the airports or the Sheikh Hussein/North Border crossing at the Jordan/Israel border.

Check with the Jordanian authorities if you’re planning to cross the Wadi Araba/south border crossing (Aqaba/Eilat) or the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge.

Whilst more liberal than its surrounding Middle Eastern countries, attention should still be taken to ensure clothing is appropriate. It is advised men should wear long trousers when in the city and at religious sites. Vests are not deemed appropriate. Women should dress in loose fitting clothes, that cover legs, arms and chest. Women should carry a scarf to cover the nape of their neck, or wear a collared shirt.
