  • Day 6:
  • Amman - Desert castles tour

We have a full day trip out of Amman today, heading east into the desert to explore some of Jordan's strange 'Desert Castles'. More combinations of forts and palaces than castles, the remains of some of these are very impressive and atmospheric. We will also visit a desert nature reserve before returning to Amman.

Today's first stop is the town of Madaba which is home to some incredibly well preserved and important Roman mosaics.

  • Day 8:

We make the short drive into the incredible desert scenery of Wadi Rum today where we take a jeep safari around the cliffs and rock formations before a short camel ride brings us to our lunch stop with the local Bedouins. In the afternoon we visit 'Little Petra' which forms a great introduction to the main site we'll explore tomorrow.

  • Day 9:
  • Petra - tour and free time

We have a full guided tour of around 4 hours in Petra today, and also have plenty of free time to explore more of the site, perhaps to walk up to the High Place of Sacrifice and the huge Monastery, carved into the cliffs and overlooking the Jordan valley.
In the evening there is an optional Petra by Candlelight tour.

  • Day 10:
  • Kings Highway - Kerak, Mt. Nebo and the Dead Sea

We leave Petra early today and drive north up the scenic King's Highway, stopping to explore the  impressive crusader castle at Kerak en-route. We also stop to admire the huge and colourful valley of Wadi Mujib, and to hopefully enjoy great views towards Jericho and Israel from Mt. Nebo. We finish the day by arriving at our Dead Sea resort in time for a swim and possible mud bath in the Dead Sea.

  • Day 11:
  • Dead Sea - Transfer to airport

Your time is free to relax at your hotel today, and perhaps enjoy some of the spa facilities, before we transfer you to the airport for your departure. Alternatively you can extend your stay and add a visit into Israel or to the nearby Baptism site at Bethany.
