08 days and 07 nights
Arrival at Amman airport. Handling of border formalities and transfer to the hotel in Amman with local assistant. Dinner & overnight.
Breakfast, drive to the Ajloun Nature Reserve, where we hike among old oak forests and olive groves on the Rock Rose Trail. Then we visit Jerash: without a doubt the best preserved Greco-Roman city in the Middle East. We are impressed by the Triumphal Arch, the nymphäum or the Artemis Temple.
Breakfast, today we visit the place from which Moses looked at the promised land but never reached it: Mt. Nebo language. Then we visit St. George's church with the famous mosaic. We then head towards the nature reserve of Dana, where we take a short hike to end the day.
Breakfast, in the morning we take a hike in the Dana Nature Reserve on the Nawatef Trail. Afterwards we drive to the world-famous Petra. Before that, we'll make a stop in Little Petra and get a taste of the coming day in the pink city.
Breakfast, start Petra visit through the Siq we enter the city of the Nabataeans, which was hit into the bare rock with hammer and chisel. What was created from this is unique! The metre-high facades are simply breathtaking: the treasure house, the rock temple, the tombs of the King's Face or the amphitheatre take your breath away. We hike up to a vantage point where we can see the entire terrain.
Breakfast, start with one of the most beautiful deserts in the world - this is how you could describe Wadi Rum without exaggerating: sandstone rock towers rise between the red sand of the desert, between granite blocks and upscale sediments. Simply fascinating! We walk among the boulders, climb through canyons to viewpoints. After the hike, we head north on the highway to another highlight - the Dead Sea: the deepest place on the surface of the earth.
Breakfast, tour of the Wadi Mujib or the Ibex Trail is undertaken. Both hikes are under strict nature protection and must be checked by the authorities day by day and, depending on the weather, free or closed for hikers. For this reason, both variants are given here. On the Ibex Trail we enjoy views of the Dead Sea, while at Wadi Mujib we hike through narrow canyons.
Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to the airport for departure.
