When it comes to exploring exotic locations, there's nothing quite like the benefit of a local expert's wisdom. That's why we've teamed up with Encounters Travel for the Jordan Encounters Tour. This eight-day package takes in everything, from the historic capital Amman to Bedouin camps and the ancient wonder Petra, and even manages to squeeze in some time to luxuriate on the coast of the Red Sea. Led by English-speaking guides, the itinerary offers a real taste of this unforgettably diverse country.

Itinerary

day 1: When you touch down in Jordan, Encounters staff will meet you and transfer you to your hotel in capital Amman to start your Jordanian adventure. Overnight in three-star Amman hotel.

day 2: Tour the historic centre of Amman, with visits to the Citadel, Roman amphitheatre, and bazaars, before experiencing the remarkable ancient Roman site of Jerash. Overnight in three-star Amman hotel; breakfast provided.

day 3: Head out by bus along the Desert Highway to the Red Sea beach resort in Aqaba. The afternoon is then free to spend at the beach or trying some snorkelling or scuba diving excursions to explore the Red Sea's coral reefs and fishes (supplement applies). Overnight in four-star Aqaba beach resort hotel; breakfast provided.

day 4: After a trip to Aqaba Fort, you'll head north to Wadi Rum for an unforgettable Bedouin experience. Hop in a rugged 4WD jeep for a safari through the spectacular desert scenery of towering cliffs, rock formations, and dunes. That night, you'll sleep under the stars in the Bedouin camp, as generations have before you. Overnight at the Wadi Rum Bedoin camp; breakfast, lunch, and dinner provided.

day 5: You'll leave your Bedouin hosts and journey to Shobak Castle, a Crusader fortresses built in the 12th Century. Next, visit the site of Little Petra, a suburb of the incredible main city that provides a perfect introduction to the larger buildings and tombs of the city to be experienced on day 6. Overnight in three-star Petra hotel; breakfast provided.

day 6: The world-famous Nabatean site of Petra was carved into the rocks and left undiscovered for centuries, and its incredible tombs, temples, passageways have endured to now. On day 6 you'll get to experience it, with a guided tour of the area with plenty of free time to explore on your own. Overnight in three-star Petra hotel; breakfast and lunch provided.

day 7: Take a beautiful drive up King's Highway, passing through groves and dramatic valleys, with a stop to see the ancient Roman mosaics at Madaba and take in the views from the top of Mt. Nebo—where Moses was shown the Promised Land. The final stop of the day is the legendary Dead Sea, where we are able to float and swim in its unique salty waters before returning to Amman. Overnight in three-star Petra hotel; breakfast provided.

day 8: Your time is free today until transfer to Amman airport for your departure flight.
