Trip Overview
Overview

Join us as we journey through Jordan’s magnificent cities, ancient ruins, and stark landscapes shaped by dramatic cliffs and sweeping seas of sand. As we wind our way through the country, we’ll visit long-abandoned cliffside fortresses, spectacular mosques, biblical landmarks, and Roman ruins. We’ll marvel at intricate mosaics and Bedouin textiles, as well as the pale stone structures of Beidha. Discover dramatic rock formations, pine forests, and shrubland up close; journey across rugged desert terrain by jeep and camel; and sleep beneath a blanket of stars in Wadi Rum, cradled by giant golden dunes.

Highlights
  • Awe-inspiring ruins
  • The Dead Sea and other natural wonders
  • Sleep in a "Martian dome"
  • Home cooking and local perspectives

Additional Info

Pricing & Single Accommodations

The total cost of this trip is $3,690. For those traveling solo, single accommodations can be provided, subject to availability, at an additional cost of $650. Please contact us to request a single room.

Accommodations

The group will be accommodated in convenient, modern, three to four-star hotels. In Wadi Rum, you'll stay in a "Martian Dome" tent with a terrace, en-suite bathroom and air conditioning. In addition to being comfortable, these tents allow you to gaze at a spectacular night sky from the comfort of your bed. 

Activity Level

Adventure is always accompanied by an element of the unexpected. The most important thing to bring with you is a flexible, positive, and open-minded attitude. During this trip, we'll sometimes be staying in simple accommodations and visiting remote regions. Some of the drives will be quite long, and sections of the roads are unpaved. You should be comfortable walking between three and five miles per day without difficulty, and spending extended periods of time on your feet. If you're uncertain about whether this trip is a good fit, please contact us and we'd be happy to discuss with you further. 

Arrival & Departure

Our trip begins with a welcome dinner on Day 1. You’ll be met and driven to our comfortable hotel in Amman, Jordan’s capital city. There, we’ll start to learn about Jordan's biblical roots, and its remarkable geography before meeting our guide and group for dinner. Our trip concludes after breakfast on the final morning in Madaba (Day 13). If leaving Jordan directly after our tour, we recommend departing after noon. If you'd like to extend your trip, we’d be more than happy to provide suggestions for things to do and see in Jordan on your own!
