Wondrous landscapes, ancient civilizations and unparalleled craftsmanship converge during this awe-inspiring journey through the Valley of the Moon (Wadi Rum) and the lost city of Petra, one of the new seven wonders of the world
After being collected from your accommodation and escorted across the border into Jordan, we will travel past the port city of Aqaba and through the barren and beautiful desert scenery near Wadi Rum, before arriving at the lost city of Petra.
Upon arriving near Petra, you will walk or ride through the narrow canyon of Wadi Siq into a place regarded by many as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Unknown to the western world until the 19th century, this two-thousand year old city, a UNESCO world heritage site, can be explored until the afternoon when we will travel to a local restaurant in Wadi Musa for a delicious buffet lunch.
You will spend the night in a Bedouin campsite in Wadi Rum, where you will be served a traditional evening meal under the starry sky and sleep in the comfortable traditional tents. (You may also choose to stay in a nearby 3-star hotel, if you prefer.)
Upon waking and eating breakfast at the camp or hotel, we will depart to the beautiful desert landscape of Wadi Rum, where ancient civilizations such as the Nabateans, have inscribed their history into the desert rock. Home to the stories and accounts of Lawrence of Arabia, this landscape is well renowned for its spectacular scenic valley, where you will join a two-hour Bedouin jeep tour to desert sites, including the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
In the late afternoon, we will head back towards Eilat, passing through the port city of Aqaba.
Please note that our tours to Petra are run by an external operator. If you choose to stay in a hotel instead of the Bedouin camp, single travelers will need to add $38 single supplement.
