Jordan Treasures

Duration
8 Days
Prices From:
US$ 1,140

From the magnificent Nabataean city of Petra to the spectacular Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash and Lawrence of Arabia’s famous Wadi Rum, the unique Kingdom of Jordan will enthrall you.


A colourful desert land with an epic history and some of the world’s most famous historic sights, Jordan is an essential adventure. This 9-day trip takes you to all the highlights, including Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and Petra.

The 20th century saw the humble town of Amman explode to become a thriving, complex city. With historic sights like the Roman Theatre and King Abdullah Mosque, Jordan’s capital is an ideal place to begin your adventure. You’ll also visit nearby Ajloun Castle, which protected the country from attack during the Crusades.

After spending a free day in Amman, set out for Mount Nebo, with breathtaking views over the River Jordan and the Dead Sea (Yes, you can float!). Visit Mabada, the city of mosaics and see the exquisite map covering the floor of St George Greek Orthodox Church. This is said to be the oldest map of the Holy Land in existence.

Make an early start for Petra, the symbol of Jordan. Make your way through the Siq to see the rock-cut architecture of the Treasury, the Street of Facades and the Amphitheater. Then head out to visit Wadi Rum, the breathtaking, almost alien desert landscape made famous by Lawrence of Arabia.

The seaside city of Aqaba brings your Jordan adventure to a relaxing end. Lay by the pool, go snorkeling or scuba diving, or continue exploring the ruins in this unique city. Get a few shots of the majestic surrounding desert before your return to Amman.

Day 4

Madaba, Mt Nebo to Petra

Starting the day with breakfast at hotel, before you are picked up by your driver. You will start your touring with a drive to visit Mount Nebo, which is about a 45 minute drive from Amman; the mountaintop memorial where Moses was buried and the most revered holy site in Jordan. When atop this mountain, you will be able to see, the vast panorama that encompasses the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem, often referred to as the Holyland. A small Byzantine church was built there by early Christians, and six tombs have been hollowed out of the rock beneath the mosaic-covered floor. A short 15 minute drive onwards takes you to Madaba, which is known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics and dubbed the city of Mosaics.
Madaba is home to the famous 6th century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. With two million pieces of vividly colored local stone, it depicts hills and valleys, villages and towns as far as the Nile Delta. The church was built in 1896 AD, over the remains of a much earlier 6th century Byzantine church. The mosaic panel enclosing the Map was originally around 15.6 X 6m, 94 square meters, only about a quarter of which is preserved. After your visit you proceed onto Petra which is approximately a 3.5 hours journey.
