This ruined city is the largest and most fascinating Roman site in the country. Founded around the 2nd-century BC, it was once an important imperial center, it features magnificent temples, theatres, colonnaded avenues and imposing gates that reveal just how significant it was.

      Untitled design 36500 x 333 Stone Home Facades in Petra

      You’ll have a full day to explore Petra, the ‘Lost City,’ heading out with a local guide. One of the most wondrous places, step into the shoes of characters like Indiana Jones. The Al Kazeneh temple served as the location of the Holy Grail in the third film. The ancient city is believed to have been built in the 1st-century BC and still holds secrets that have yet to be revealed. It includes homes, tombs, temples, altars, obelisks, and a theatre that once sat over 3,000 people. To date just 15 percent has been uncovered, with the rest untouched underground.

    • Day 5

      Petra: Day of Leisure & Hands-On Cooking Class

      Untitled design 47500 x 333 Petra at Dusk

      Enjoy the day exploring Petra at your own pace. By visiting early in the morning you might have the magnificent Treasury all to yourself. The Siq is the famous gorge that was formed when tectonic forces broke the mountain into two pieces. Walking through is a must, winding between the towering rock walls, anticipating that legendary view of the Treasury. Be sure to climb the 800 steps to the stunning Monastery carved right into the rock face in the 3rd-century BC. An experience this evening will allow you to take home a useful souvenir – a hands-on cooking class taught by a local chef.

    • Day 6

      Leaving Petra today, an approximately two-hour drive will bring you to a Bedouin-style camp in Wadi Rum where you’ll spend the night next to a campfire under the stars. A crown jewel in this ancient desert, it features dramatic basalt and sandstone mountains that rise from the red sandy floor, fascinating rock art and an incredible night sky. Before getting relaxed and settled in you’ll have the option to ride a camel through this stunning desert scenery. A traditional Jordanian meal will be served this evening and then you’ll get to lay back and stare up at the brilliant star-filled desert sky.

      A thrilling tour taken in a traditional Bedouin-style Jeep will be enjoyed after breakfast this morning. You’ll explore the highlights of the region, including its remarkable rock formations, ancient rock art and craggy mountains, while learning about its history, which includes being a base for Lawrence of Arabia during the Arab revolt. After your tour, your private driver will bring you to the Dead Sea. Experts believe it could disappear over the next half-century as it’s already shrunk by a third over the last 40 years and it’s been sinking more than a foot every year, with time running out to experience it.

      Dead Sea: Float in the Salty Dead Sea

      Untitled design 32500 x 333 Dead Sea

      Enjoy the day to yourself, taking advantage of the salty seawater – the Dead Sea contains 10 times more saline than seawater which causes people to float like corks while enjoying its therapeutic sea minerals. While there are spas where you can enjoy a treatment that includes the sea’s naturally healing ingredients, the nutrient-rich mud is right along the shore. Everyone in the family can have fun with this – all you do is cover yourself up with it, allow it to set on your skin and then take another dip in the sea to rinse off. Afterwards, your complexions will be glowing.

    • Day 9
