Day 2: amman

Feast on the flavors of JordanFeast on the flavors of Jordan

After breakfast, spend a full day exploring Amman. Your experienced guide will start by teaching you a few Arabic greetings that will help you communicate with the Jordanians you will meet during your trip. Add a few more words each day. Many people speak English, but you'll get an especially warm reception when you try to use some Arabic.

Start the day with a visit to the Citadel of Hercules, which was occupied as early as the Neolithic period and where, in the Old Testament, King David arranged to have his lover's husband murdered. The citadel overlooks the amphitheater and old downtown. Then drive to Jebel Webdeh, the arts and culture district full of art galleries and local antiquities and handcraft shops. Arrive at First Circle and start a walking tour on Rainbow street, lined with cafes, before descending colorful steps into the heart of the old city. Stop at local restaurants to sample falafel, hummus, and the Arab delicacy Kenafah, eaten at times of celebration. Continue through the streets and markets, visiting the Husseini mosque and, time permitting, the amphitheater. End the day with a cooking experience at Beit Sitti (literally, "House of my Grandmother"), where you will learn to cook a traditional Arabic meal, then enjoy your creation.

Day 3: jerash/ajloun

Roman ruins at JerashRoman ruins at Jerash

Drive north to Jerash, one of the most preserved Greco-Roman cities in the Middle East. Founded in the time of Alexander the Great, by the 3rd century it had become a center of considerable importance. Today it is one of the grandest ancient cities in the world with an imposing collection of archways, theaters, baths, public buildings, and colonnaded streets. Continue to Ajloun to tour the 12th Century Saracen Castle built by one of Saladin's lieutenants to ward off Crusader armies at this key trade and pilgrimage intersection between Jerusalem, Cairo, Damascus and Mecca. Then head to the village of Orjan for an experience of traditional local life. Meet your local host at the olive groves to see the trees that have born fruit for hundreds of years. Then take a short walk to your host's family home, where you will be introduced to the culture and daily life of the host community and sample a delicious feast of traditional food cooked by his family. This is an ideal opportunity to ask questions about life in rural Jordan. Return to Amman for the evening.

After breakfast, leave Amman for a three-hour drive south to Petra. Visit Mt. Nebo and take in the view where Moses looked across to the Promised Land and later died and was buried. You can see panoramic views of Jordan, the Dead Sea, and Israel. Then head to Madaba to discover the amazing Byzantine mosaics excavated from throughout the town. See the Madaba Map at the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George. This oldest preserved map of the region clearly depicts Palestine and Lower Egypt around 550 AD. Continue south to the ancient crusader castle in Karak, exploring the maze of stone-vaulted halls and passageways. The city of Karak was the capital of Moab and the castle dominates the skyline, providing an impressive insight into the architectural and military skills of the Crusaders. Stop at Shobak castle, also known as Montreal, before heading to Wadi Musa (the town outside the Petra ruins) in time for dinner.

You are sure to be surprised by the size and scale of this ancient "Red Rose City," built by the Nabataean people. Explore the old Roman road, amphitheater and several old tombs. After lunch, venture where many tourists don't, climbing up to the Monastery or to Jebel Khubtha for a spectacular view of the entire site. It is a memorable day and sure to be one of the main highlights of your trip. 

Return to the hotel to freshen up before enjoying a hands-on culinary experience at Petra Kitchen.

Day 6: wadi rum

Relax around the fire at your Bedouin campRelax around the fire at your Bedouin camp

Depart this morning for Wadi Rum, a beautiful desert valley lined with towering sandstone mountains. The wind-sculpted rock formations change hue throughout the day. Wadi Rum is probably best known for its connection with the enigmatic British officer T.E. Lawrence, who was based here during the Great Arab Revolt of 1917-1918. Much of David Lean's film of his exploits, "Lawrence of Arabia," was actually filmed in Wadi Rum. On arrival at your camp, start your desert adventure with a camel ride out into the magical mountainous desert. Then meet your Bedouin hosts who will drive you on a jeep safari exploring this UNESCO World Heritage Site, traveling around Wadi Rum's canyons and dunes, discovering rock inscriptions, majestic views of mountains, and narrow gorges. At each stop you have the opportunity to hike (or scramble up dunes) and explore in your own time. Enjoy a simple lunch cooked in the desert in the shade of the mountains, and finish with a sunset view across the desert. Return to the camp for dinner and Bedouin hospitality.

After waking up to the sunrise and a simple breakfast in the desert, you'll head to Aqaba, Jordan's only port with access to the Red Sea. Enjoy a boat ride with views of Jordan, Israel, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. You will also have time to swim and snorkel from the boat, floating over coral and observing the fantastic range of tropical fish. The evening is yours at leisure.

If you're an early riser, enjoy a short hike to watch the sun rise. After breakfast in the lodge, head north to Wadi Mujib for an easy – but wet! – hike on the Siq trail (season and weather permitting). Walk through the stream between towering sandstone cliffs to the base of a waterfall. This wadi shows you dramatic mountain scenery, featuring a beautiful black basaltic canyon lined with narrow gorges and spotted with fresh natural pools. Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, the gorge may contain pools deep enough for swimming. The self-guided trail will probably take you 2-3 hours. Please be aware the water can be waist deep, and at times you may have to pull yourself up through flowing water, so please wear shoes and clothes you are happy to get completely wet; we recommend tough sneakers. Then drive to the Dead Sea, the lowest spot on earth, for time to float in the salty waters, or enjoy a spa treatment. Overnight near the Dead Sea.

Journey into Jordan

Amman, Jerash, Madaba, Petra, Wadi Rum, Aqaba, and the Dead Sea

overview

Explore Jordan from top to bottom on an epic cultural journey through time. The Jordanian capital, Amman, was previously known as Philadelphia, and its Roman theater reminds us of the glories of that great empire.  Mysterious Petra appears out of nowhere – a remarkable rose-colored city hewn from the sandstone cliffs by the Nabataean people and now regarded as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The Citadel of Hercules and the viewpoint at Mt. Nebo figure in stories of the Old Testament. The desert at Wadi Rum resonates to the exploits of T.E. Lawrence, more popularly known as Lawrence of Arabia. The Bedouin communities throughout the desert countryside are living proof of continuing nomadic traditions. And the Jordanians who welcome you into their homes will offer a taste of contemporary life in this modern Arabic country.

Savor the delicious flavors of the country. Wander the splendid ruins at Jerash and Petra. Stay in a Bedouin camp in a picturesque wadi (desert valley). Splash in the Red Sea, the Dead Sea, and the Siq water trail at Wadi Mujib. Lose yourself in the sands and seas of the desert.
