Itinerary

DAY 01: AMMAN QUEEN ALIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT – AMMAN

Arrival at Amman airport. Handling of border formalities and transfer to the hotel in Amman with local assistant. Dinner & overnight.

DAY 02: AMMAN – WADI RUM TREK

Breakfast, there is an opportunity to exchange money and purchase snacks for the upcoming desert trek. We then transfer by bus to Wadi Rum (4 - 5hrs). Before embarking on our desert trek, we visit Wadi Rum visitor centre and take in the sight of The 7 Pillars of Wisdom’, a spectacular rock formation with seven fluted turrets. It is a short transfer to the start of our introductory walk where we walk to Um Al Bdoun, a private campsite run by the local Bedouin people. In the evening, we enjoy a dinner prepared in a traditional way known as a zarb. A cooking pot is dug into the sand and left for most of the day to slow cook meats and vegetables.

DAY 03: WADI RUM FULL DAY TREK

Breakfast, from our campsite we trek through Siq el Barrah, a magnificent desert canyon with immense rock walls. We continue through open desert and there is a tangible sense of wilderness as we pass sandstone mountains and rocky outcrops. We set up our camp up beneath the cool shade of two rocky mountains, Rakaa and Mharrak.

DAY 04: WADI RUM FULL DAY TREK WITH OPTIONAL CLIMB

Breakfast, begin today by heading to Jebel Burdah. Burdah Bridge is a striking rock formation that arches from one rock mass to another. The route has sections of scrambling and some of them involve the use of ropes, especially the optional ascent to the top of the bridge. There are panoramic views throughout the trek. In the afternoon, we continue our trek through the desert. Our next campsite is atop sand dunes nearby Jebel Umm Fruth in the south east corner of Wadi Rum Desert.

DAY 05: WADI RUM SCRAMBLING

Breakfast, today we head to Umm Fruth Rock Bridge. The rock bridge is situated just a short walk away from our campsite. Umm Fruth requires some easy level scrambling. The ascent is steep and short and the sandstone is firm with good underfoot grip. We continue our trek to the ruins of Lawrence House. In the afternoon, we traverse across remote red sand dunes with spectacular views throughout. There is an opportunity to see historic rock inscriptions before we set up camp tonight in the crook of a desert mountain.

DAY 06: WADI RUM OPTIONAL CAMEL TRK – PETRA VISIT

Breakfast, our last morning in the desert starts with a walk or optional camel trek through Wadi Umm Al Ishrim. We transfer to Petra at approximately lunchtime. In the afternoon, we have the option to visit Little Petra, a smaller but still impressive version of the main Petra site. Duration of walk: 3-4 h.

DAY 07: PETRA – HIKE TO MONESTRY – AMMAN

Breakfast, this morning the excitement mounts as we set off early to explore the ancient city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage site famed for its astonishing scale and bound to be a highlight for many. Following in the footsteps of Burckhardt down the narrow siq, you finally catch a tantalising glimpse of El Khazneh - the Treasury - revealed in all its splendour as you come out into the open. The work involved in carving this immense façade out of solid rock defies belief. In the centre of the city you will pass the houses and tombs of the more affluent citizens and also a Roman amphitheatre, preserved in remarkable condition. Beyond the city centre is El Deir, the Monastery. Its superb façade is carved into the rock and topped by a huge urn. After our visit we transfer back to Amman.

DAY 08: AMMAN – AMMAN QUEEN ALIA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT

Breakfast at the hotel. Transfer to the airport for departure.
