Experience the real Jordan
Το ακόλουθο πρόγραμμα πραγματοποιείται μόνο για γκρουπ άνω των 20 ατόμων. Μεμονωμένοι ταξιδιώτες δε μπορούν να συμμετέχουν.
Day 1: ARRIVE AMMAN – DEAD SEA
Upon arrival at Amman, meet with our representative and transfer to the hotel at Dead Sea shore. Rest of the day is at your own leisure to enjoy one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world!
Day 2: DEAD SEA – BETHANY BEYOND THE JORDAN RIVER – MOUNT NEBO – MADABA - PETRA
Morning will be free and in the afternoon we drive to visit Bethany, beyond the Jordan. This locality on the Jordan River above the Dead Sea is described in the New Testament as the site where Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. We continue to Mount Nebo, where Moses looked over the Holy Land and the Dead Sea. That is the place where Moses was seen for the last time; therefore it is considered as the burial place for Moses. Drive to visit Madaba, along the 5,000-year-old Kings´ Highway, one of the most memorable places in the Holy Land. Best known for its spectacular Byzantine and Umayyad mosaics, Madaba is home to the famous 6th century Mosaic Map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. At the end of our tour, proceed to Petra for overnight.
Day 3: PETRA
Today we visit Petra, capital of the ancient Nabatean kingdom. The long-lost city of Petra, carved entirely by man into the rose-red sandstone rocks, puts your imagination to the test. The city was so renowned that one of its kings, Aretas IV, is even mentioned in the Bible. The natural richness of the mountainous area combines in a superb way with the refined culture and massive architecture of the Nabateans, who carved their theatre, temples, façades, tombs, monasteries, houses and roads entirely into the rocks. We will see the famous Treasury and walk between the numerous buildings carved in stone.
Day 4: PETRA – WADI RUM (with 2 hours’ jeep safari & camel ride) - AQABA
In the morning we drive to Wadi Rum, a journey to another world, a silent and timeless place where we will be dwarfed to insignificance. “Vast, echoing and Godlike” that's how Lawrence of Arabia described the place. The uniquely shaped massive mountains rise out of the rose-red desert sand. We enjoy a 2-hour Safari by 4x4 and 1-hour camel ride. After lunch we drive to Aqaba and spend the evening at leisure.
Day 5: AQABA (Free day)
Aqaba is the only coastal city in Jordan. The waters of the Red Sea are crystal clear and have an abundant marine life. Aqaba offers a wide variety of opportunities to explore this amazing underwater world, such as scuba diving and snorkeling. The Red Sea is home to more than 140 species of coral and countless species of brightly colored fish. And if you are lucky you may also experience close encounters with friendly sea animals like turtles and dolphins. Snorkeling and water/sailing activities are optional.
Day 6: AQABA – AMMAN - DEPARTURE
Transfer to Aqaba airport for your departure flight through Amman.
