Highlights
  • Arrive at the awe-inspiring sight of petra
  • Camp out under the stars in wadi rum
  • Observe many coloured fish while snorkelling in the red sea
  • Float in the salty dead sea

The worst part of resort vacations? Trying to find a spot to lay out your blanket on a crowded beach. Solution: Visit Jordan instead! The beach never ends here (okay, technically it’s the Arabian Desert, but still…), and there’s way more to do here besides laying about and catching rays. Grab the kids and gape at the ancient rock-cut city of Petra one day, hike magnificent Wadi Rum the next, then snorkel the coral reefs of Aqaba and float in the Dead Sea a few days later. Good luck doing all that at an all-inclusive!

Itinerary

Day 1 Amman

Arrive at any time. Arrival transfer is included. Included Activities: Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 2 Amman/Wādī Mūsá (1B)

Set off from Amman in the morning, en route to Petra. Along the way, stop at Karak to enjoy a gorge walk through Wadi Ibn Hammad. The fertile land in the valley creates an incredible landscape of trees, waterfalls, and rock formations to walk through. The water can be quite deep in places, so be careful not to lose footing. Afterwards, explore the crusader castle of Karak. Continue on to Wadi Musa, the township closest to Petra, and stay for the night. Included Activities: Wadi Ibn Hammad Gorge Walk Karak Castle Visit Transport: Stop at Karak en route to Wadi Musa. Private Vehicle

Day 3 Wādī Mūsá/Petra (1B)

Visit Jordan's most famous site. Included Activities: Petra Guided Tour

Day 4 Petra/Wadi Rum (1B, 1D)

Drive out to the desert to the magical Wadi Rum. Although the way is lit by lanterns, it is a good idea to have a torch/flashlight on hand. There is a large central tent that is traditionally decorated and perfect for relaxing or escaping the cold nights in winter. Spend the evening sitting under the stars around the fire, listening to stories from the Bedouin hosts. If really lucky, they may bring the drums out for some music. Additional Notes: Our camp at Wadi Rum is basic but comfortable. Sleep on beds in one long goathair tent, which is divided by blankets into twin-share “rooms” for privacy. A bottom sheet and blanket is provided, but most people prefer to bring along a travel sleep sheet/sleeping bag liner. Bathroom facilities are shared and unisex and located around 20m (66 ft) from the camp. Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 5 Wadi Rum/Aqaba (1B)

Take off into the desert using 4X4 vehicles for transportation. Riding over the dunes and open expanses of sand, see the sheer size of the desert as well as some of the major sites of the region. The Seven Pillars of Wisdom rock formation, made famous by T.E. Lawrence, looms out of the desert. Take a pause here – it is easy to imagine being transported back in time to join Lawrence as he crossed the desert. To get closer to this experience, there is the option of taking a camel ride across the desert. Leave the desert behind, and transfer to the coastal town of Aqaba for the night. Included Activities: Wadi Rum 4x4 Excursion Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 6 Aqaba (1B, 1L)

The Red Sea is world famous for it's clear blue water. Take a boat trip out on the coral reef to see everything under the waves. The variety of brightly coloured fish and marine life make this an experience that will never be forgotten.

Day 7 Aqaba/Amman (1B)

Travel from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea. The Dead Sea is actually a lake without any form of life whatsoever existing in its waters. The water is so dense that it is practically impossible to sink, being five to ten times as salty as regular sea water. Be based at a resort for the day, and have access to the beach. While swimming, cover yourself with the sea's mud, which is reputed to have special healing powers, and don't forget to take a photo of yourself reading a book while floating! The salt water penetrates any cuts on your body and has an unusual smell, but there are showers to wash off after swimming. Afterwards, relax under an umbrella next to one of the freshwater swimming pools. In the late afternoon, transfer back to Amman to spend the night. Included Activities: Dead Sea Visit Transport: Private Vehicle

Day 8 Amman (1B)

Departure day. Feel free to depart at any time. Included Activities: Departure Day

Solo Notes

We believe solo travellers should not have to pay more to travel so our group trips are designed for shared accommodation and do not involve a single supplement. Single travellers joining group trips are paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip. Some of our Independent trips are designed differently and solo travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Hotels (6 nts), desert camp (1 nt)
Accommodation for family trips has been chosen to give the best location and facilities for your family. They may vary depending on the location and destination, but designed to give the most comfortable experience while travelling. You and your family will generally be sharing rooms on a twin or triple share basis. These rooms will be either adjoining or located at close proximity to each other. Families will be roomed together and not with other families everywhere we stay. If you have any special hotel requests at the time of booking, let us know and we will do what we can to accommodate them. On this trip you can expect to stay in small local hotels or pensions (with the exception of the start and finish hotels, which are often larger city hotels), which will vary a little in standard and facilities: some may not have elevators, air-conditioning or English-speaking staff, but most importantly all are locally-run and in excellent central locations to give you maximum time for exploring the sights.

Additional Information:

Important Notes

RAMADAN According to the lunar cycle, Ramadan will fall between May 15th and June 14th, 2018. Please note that Ramadan is a month of fasting observed by Muslims throughout the world, during which time the followers of Islam should not eat or drink between sunrise and sunset. There may be some limitations to services and disruptions to schedules during Ramadan, but generally our tours still operate effectively during this period and food is available to non-Muslims throughout the day. It is very important to display increased cultural sensitivity during Ramadan. Please wear loose fitting clothes, that cover knees and shoulders, and try to avoid eating, drinking or smoking in public out of respect for those who can't at that time.

Meals

Eating is a big part of traveling. Travelling with G Adventures you experience the vast array of wonderful food that is available out in the world. Generally meals are not included in the trip price when there is a choice of eating options, to give you the maximum flexibility in deciding where, what and with whom to eat. It also gives you more budgeting flexibility, though generally food is cheap. Our groups tend to eat together to enable you to taste a larger variety of dishes and enjoy each other's company. There is no obligation to do this though. Your CEO will be able to suggest favourite restaurants during your trip. The above information applies to G Adventures group trips. For Independent trips please check the itinerary for details of meals included. For all trips please refer to the meals included and budget information for included meals and meal budgets.

Dossier Disclaimer

The information in this trip details document has been compiled with care and is provided in good faith. However it is subject to change, and does not form part of the contract between the client and the operator. The itinerary featured is correct at time of printing. It may differ slightly to the one in the brochure. Occasionally our itineraries change as we make improvements that stem from past travellers, comments and our own research. Sometimes it can be a small change like adding an extra meal along the itinerary. Sometimes the change may result in us altering the tour for the coming year. Ultimately, our goal is to provide you with the most rewarding experience. Please note that our brochure is usually released in November each year. If you have booked from the previous brochure you may find there have been some changes to the itinerary. VERY IMPORTANT: Please ensure that you print a final copy of your Trip Details to review a couple of days prior to travel, in case there have been changes that affect your plans.

Physical Requirements Our small group adventures bring together people of all ages. It is very important you are aware that, as a minimum, an average level of fitness and mobility' is required to undertake our easiest programs. Travellers must be able to walk without the aid of another person, climb 3-4 flights of stairs, step on and off small boats, and carry their own luggage at a minimum. Travellers with a pre-existing medical condition are required to complete a short medical questionnaire, which must be signed by their physician. This is to ensure that travellers have the necessary fitness and mobility to comfortably complete their chosen trip. While our CEOs work hard to ensure that all our travellers are catered for equally, it is not their responsibility to help individuals who cannot complete the day's activities unaided. Please refer to the physical ratings in this Trip Details document for more information. The medical questionnaire can be found online at: www.gadventures.com/medical-form.
Rules & Other Requirements Illegal drugs will not be tolerated on any trips. Possessing or using drugs not only contravenes the laws of the land but also puts the rest of the group at risk. Smoking marijuana and opium is a part of local culture in some parts of the world but is not acceptable for our travellers. Our philosophy of travel is one of respect towards everyone we encounter, and in particular the local people who make the world the special place it is. The exploitation of prostitutes is completely contrary to this philosophy. Our group leader has the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
