Guides are available to hire for a 2 hour tour – ask at the entrance gates. Continue north through pistachio and olive plantations to reach Ajloun Castle.

Day 3: Mt Nebo – Madaba – Karak – Petra

Taking the Kings’ Highway, travel south to Mt Nebo where God permitted Moses a glimpse of the Promised Land before he died. Then on to Madaba to see the famous mosaic map of the Holy Lands inside the St George Church. Nearby at the Archaeological Park you can find gorgeous mosaics in the ruins of 4 churches. Further south, pass through Wadi Mujib Canyon to reach Karak. The Crusader Castle overlooking the town was built by King Baldwin I of Jerusalem. Continue south to Petra. Overnight: Petra


Day 4: Petra

After purchasing your entrance tickets, walk the 1.2km-long Siq (chasm) passing shrines, tombs and carvings before exiting to the breathtaking sight of the Treasury. Walk the Street of Facades, passing the Roman Theatre to reach the Royal Tombs. See the Byzantine Church, Temple of the Winged Lions and Great Temple.

Note: We strongly recommend a guide – we can arrange one in advance or request at the time of buying your entrance ticket. Overnight: Petra


Day 5: Little Petra – Wadi Rum

Close to Petra you can find al-Barid (Little Petra) where accommodation and eateries were provided for the cameleers and merchants. The fertile lands provided food for Petra as well as a place to rest the camels. Stop at the Bride’s Well and/or take a walk along the time line road to a Neolithic Village (9,000-5,500BC), one of the oldest sites of civilization in Jordan. Travel south to the magnificent desert landscape of Wadi Rum. Leave your car at your desert campsite before climbing into the back of a 4WD jeep for a 3 hour tour of the desert. Return to your campsite for a sumptuous Jordanian dinner (Zarb) which is cooked in the ground. Overnight: Wadi Rum
