DAY 04: DANA – LITTLE PETRA TREK

We’ll pass Roman watchtowers and remarkable Neolithic (stone age) sites as we trek through this stunning region. The campsite for tonight is at the edge of UNESCO-listed Beidha. Distance trekked today: 18km

DAY 05: LITTLE PETRA – PETRA TREK

Breakfast, our final day of trekking begins with a walk to Siq al Barid (Little Petra). This lesser known site is thought to have been an important agricultural centre and supply post for travellers to Petra. The scenery changes as we walk, from rocky mountains to rolling sandstone hills. Enter Little Petra through a narrow opening, similar to the famous Siq of Petra itself, but smaller. After our visit, we continue to Beidha - one of the earliest examples of permanent human settlement in existence. Later, we’ll arrive in the Rose Red City of Petra and visit the legendary Ad Deir (The Monastery), which is perched high on a hill-top and marvel at this iconic tomb before we continue to our hotel for a well-earned rest.

We then explore the group of tombs on the Street of Facades and the Theatre, which is Roman in style but carved from existing rock rather than built like the Roman amphitheatres. Today’s sightseeing concludes with visits to the Byzantine Church and fascinating Petra Museum, which displays many exhibits from across Petra’s rich history.

DAY 07: PETRA – DEAD SEA

Breakfast, today last day in Jordan, full day relaxation at the lowest point on earth. Spectacular natural wonder the Dead Sea is perfect for religious tourism and fun in the sun with the family. With its mix of beach living and religious history you can soak up the sun while Biblical scholars can get their daily dose of religious history. The leading attraction at the Dead Sea is the warm, soothing, super salty water itself – some ten times saltier than sea water, and rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others. The unusually warm, incredibly buoyant and mineral-rich waters have attracted visitors since ancient times, including King Herod the Great and the beautiful Egyptian Queen, Cleopatra. All of whom have luxuriated in the Dead Sea's rich, black, stimulating mud and floated effortlessly on their backs while soaking up the water's healthy minerals along with the gently diffused rays of the Jordanian sun.

Breakfast. Transfer to the airport for departure.
