Highlights
  • Trek ajloun and dana nature reserves
  • Float in the dead sea
  • Go canyoneering and abseiling through wadi mujib
  • Set your eyes on the rose city of petra
  • Savour a local bedouin meal in the desert of wadi rum

Jordan is famed for its ancient past but its present is pretty darn compelling, too. The natural and man-made wonders of Petra and Wadi Rum have been drawing travellers here for ages, but the rough-hewn grandeur of Jordan has remained a secret known only to the boldest of thrill-seekers. Trek the rocky hills to isolated villages along the trails near Ajloun, hike down canyons towards the Dead Sea, and discover the Dana Biosphere Reserve. See for yourself why Jordan is a secret we just couldn’t keep to ourselves any longer.

Itinerary

Day 1 Amman

After learning more about the tour and plans for the following day, choose to head out for an optional dinner at a local restaurant with the CEO and traveling companions. Amman is a very big city and there is not one central area to stay - hotels are spread out across various neighbourhoods within the city. For this reason, to move around the city in your free time, you will have to take a taxi, please feel free to ask your CEO for recommendations and assistance. Additional Notes: Please check the hotel notice board for more information on the location of this meeting or ask at reception. Please bring your passport and travel insurance documents to this meeting, as you will be required to fill out some important pre-trip admin documents. Included Activities: Arrival Day and Welcome Meeting

Day 2 Amman/‘Ajlūn (1B, 1L, 1D)

After breakfast, head north out of Amman to the lesser known region of Ajloun. The most common image of Jordan is that of an arid land covered in desert. Enjoy a short trek in Ajloun Nature Reserve. Transfer up to Ajloun passing through areas surrounded by woodland, olive groves, and strong oak trees. A hidden gem in Jordan, the area's natural beauty is impressive. Included Activities: Ajloun Nature Reserve Hike Transport: Private Vehicle (2.00 hour(s))

Day 3 ‘Ajlūn/Dead Sea (1B, 1D)

Begin today with a short bus ride to Wadi Mujib, and spend the morning hiking, abseiling, climbing, and walking down to the Dead Sea. From Wadi Mujib, continue the short distance to the Dead Sea. There is access to the beach from here. Enjoy time to bathe in the salty waters or cover yourself in mud from the sea that supposedly has healing powers. Overnight at the Dead Sea. Additional Notes: In the winter (November-March) a dry trail is available called the Ibex Trail (3-4 hrs), and in the summer (April-October) visitors can hike a wet trail called Mujib Canyon Trail (4 hrs). These trails both offer spectacular scenery surrounded with very different conditions for canyoneering. Included Activities: Mujib Canyon Trail Hike Dead Sea Visit Transport: Private Vehicle (4.00 hour(s))

Day 4 Dead Sea/Petra (1B, 1L)

Another of Jordan's hidden gems, the Dana Nature Reserve is an oasis among the golden expanse of the desert. Take a guided walk through the reserve, following the Feathers Canyon Trail, which leads past Nabatean tombs to a breathtaking siq. Dana is a diverse environment containing a wide variety of plant life, including many that are endemic to the reserve. There are also several endangered species here to keep an eye out for. Included Activities: Dana BIosphere Reserve Trek Transport: Private Vehicle (10.00 hour(s))

Day 5 Petra (1B)

Take the next two days to explore the site of Petra. First, head over to Al Beidha, also known as Little Petra. This site is literally hidden away in a mountain and is a miniature version of Petra, containing a number of notable tombs. It offers a glimpse of Petra without the crowds. After exploring this site, make the short trek over to Petra itself. The trail is approx 5km (3.1 mi) between the sites. The excitement builds when first glimpsing the Monastery from a vantage point high above the ruins of Petra. The rest of the day is free to explore the site, before heading back through the siq to the hotel. Approx travel times: Wadi Rum to Amman, 3.5 hrs Included Activities: Siq al-Barid (Little Petra) Visit Petra Guided Tour

Day 6 Petra/Wadi Rum (1B, 1D)

After breakfast, have the morning free to visit Petra again. The site is large, but you can set your own pace depending on the weather and the interests of the group. After the Nabatean ruins, drive to Wadi Rum, a vast, silent landscape of ancient riverbeds and the largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes. There may be time this afternoon for a 4x4 trip into the desert. On arrival, head to a comfortable tented camp at Dissah Oasis in Wadi Rum Desert. Enjoy a traditional meal for dinner and learn more about this ancient culture. Be sure to keep a look out at the night sky; the absence of city lights means that the opportunities for star gazing are really impressive. Included Activities: 4x4 Desert Trip Overnight in Tented Camp Transport: Private Vehicle (2.00 hour(s))

Day 7 Wadi Rum/Amman (1B)

Wake up in the desert. Setting off from the camp, head to Khazaly Canyon and cross the Little Bridge and Lawrence Spring before returning to camp. In the afternoon there is time to relax at the campsite. In the evening, return to Amman. Transport: Private Vehicle (3.50 hour(s))

Day 8 Amman (1B)

Depart at any time. Additional Notes: Please note that the check-out time from the hotel is normally mid-morning, but luggage storage facilities are available. Want to extend your stay for a few more days? We are able to organize extra post-trip accommodation. Please ask at the time of booking. Included Activities: Departure Day

Solo Notes

We believe single 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 single travellers on these itineraries must pay the single trip price.
Accomodations
Hotels (5 nts), tented camp (1 nt), cabin in winter or bungalow in summer (1 nt).
The accommodation level is mostly in comfortable, mid-range hotels, motels, lodges, guest houses, etc. You'll often enjoy air-conditioned rooms, complete with en suite bathrooms and some amenities. Accommodation and amenities can vary by Country and region and please remember that standards can be different from what you are used to in your home country, which is part of the appeal of adventure travel. Some trips may include camping, permanent tented camps or more rustic lodges, depending on the remoteness of where you are visiting. Please see your trip details for more information, specific to your tour.

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 CEOs have the right to expel any member of the group if drugs are found in their possession or if they use prostitutes.
