Picture a vast desert as far as the eye can see under a sky as blue as the deepest ocean. A land where Bedouins roam and where beauty is found in the most unexpected places. Cross the wild sands and desert canyons only to stumble€ross the lost city of Petra, carefully carved into pink sandstone cliffs. Float without a care in the Dead Sea and from your desert camp at Wadi Rum, gaze up into the night sky at the map of stars above your head. Jordan is a hospitable, majestic and captivating country. Well explore the capital Amman, with its colourful bazaars, ancient citadel and museums, and visit the best preserved Roman city in the Near East at Jerash, with its spectacular temples and forum. We will take a dramatic walk from the hot springs at Ibn Hammad, en route to our campsite at Dana, and walk to a spectacular Eco lodge at Feynan. Well explore the spectacular canyon and sand dunes of Wadi Rum, enjoying the quiet and colour of the desert, and fully explore the Red Rose city of Petra, set deep inside the narrow gorge with its walls rising two hundred metres from the desert floor. Petra is truly a special place, with a history that dates back over 2,000 years and was once the crossroads of the trade routes between east and west. En route to Madeba, well see the mighty crusader castles at Shobak and Kerak and swim (or float!) in the Dead Sea, and visit Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. At Madeba, well see the ancient mosaic map of the Holyland. This is a journey through history, seeing and experiencing a fascinating country at its best.
