Surrounded by countries with ongoing political issues, Jordan itself is relatively peaceful and it deserves to be crowded with visitors

Starting in Amman and finishing at the Dead Sea

RSAA JORDAN 2017  From the sprawling city of Amman, gateway and ancient capital, we visit spectacular desert castles and Azraq Wetland Reserve before taking the 5,000 year old King’s Highway to Jerash and Ajloun to see local treasures and visit Syrian Refugees. We overnight in Madaba, the city of mosaics, and Mount Nebo, burial place of Moses, whose archaeological treasures are but a prelude to Petra, the fabled ‘rose red’ city hewn out of rock 2,000 years ago. Spirit yourself back to the time of Lawrence of Arabia in evocative Wadi Rum – a spectacular collection of rock formations known as jebels; enjoy the traditional hospitality of Bedouin people as you camp out in the stark desert landscape; marvel at the numerous and outstanding mosques and soak up the atmosphere in this largely undiscovered destination. We have included a number of ‘present day’ meetings with local experts in their fields and some short hiking opportunities in some of the many nature reserves before we end our tour at the mineral rich Dead Sea. Here we will float in the salty waters, a relaxing end to a busy and fascinating itinerary.

Guide Price: £2995 per person based on 10 – 15 people travelling.

£460 per person single supplement (please note for the one night at Ajloun, you may need to share).
