Day 4
Wadi Rum

Transfer in private vehicle from the Dead Sea to Wadi Rum.

Also known as the "Valley of the Moon", the Wadi Rum Reserve is a timeless place, virtually untouched by humanity and its destructive forces. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence as "vast, echoing and god-like". A maze of monolithic rockscapes rises up from the desert floor to heights of 1,750 meters. Ideal for hiking, rock climbing and desert trekking, one can enjoy the tranquility of the boundless empty spaces, explore the canyons and water holes to discover 4000 year old rock drawings and the many other spectacular treasures this vast wilderness holds within. Explore this vast terrain with your private 4x4 Closed Top jeep safari inside Wadi Rum including the Lawrence Spring, and Khazalee mountain (duration is 2 hrs).

Experience the vast wonders of Wadi Rum on your private sunset camel trek complete with personal Bedouin guide. Duration is 1 hour.

Bait Ali Desert Lodge - Deluxe Chalet with AC

Day 5
Petra - Ma'In

Transfer in private vehicle from Wadi Rum to Petra. Driving time is 1.5 hour.

The wonder of Petra is without a doubt, Jordan's most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabateans; an industrious Arab people who settled here more than 2000 years ago. It was turned into an important junction for the silk, spice and other trade routes that linked China, India and southern Arabia with Egypt, Syria, Greece and Rome.

Entrance to the city is through the Siq, a narrow gorge, over 1 kilometer in length flanked on either side by soaring, 80 meters high cliffs. Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself. The colors and formations of the rocks are dazzling. As you reach the end of the Siq you will catch your first glimpse of Al-Khazneh (Treasury). This is an awe-inspiring experience. A massive facade, carved out of the sheer, dusky pink, rock-face and dwarfing everything around it. It was carved in the early 1st century as the tomb of an important Nabatean king and represents the engineering genius of these ancient people.

The Treasury is just the first of the many wonders that make up Petra. You will need at least four or five days to really explore everything here. As you enter the Petra valley you will be overwhelmed by the natural beauty of this place and its outstanding architectural achievements. There are hundreds of elaborate rock-cut tombs with intricate carvings - unlike the houses, which were destroyed mostly by earthquakes, the tombs were carved to last throughout the afterlife and 500 have survived, empty but bewitching as you file past their dark openings. Here, also is a massive Nabatean-built, Roman-style theatre, seating 3,000 people. There are obelisks, temples, sacrificial altars & colonnaded streets, and high above, overlooking the valley, is the impressive Ad-Deir Monastery - a flight of 800 rock cut steps takes you there. Lunch will be served at Basin Restaurant inside the Petra site.

Transfer in private vehicle from Petra to Ma'In. Driving time is approximately 3.5 hours.

Ma'in Hot Springs Hotel - Evason Room

Day 6

Enjoy your free day at Ma'In Hot Springs Hotel - Climb to the top of the mountain and enjoy a dramatic picnic breakfast on the top of the Ma"in water fall and discover the source of the Hot Spring.
