Ancient Beauty in the Lost City of Petra & Across Jordan

Jordan is a country of immense beauty, history and hospitality, which will leave an awe-inspiring and memorable impression. Famed for the enchanting Rose City, this ancient world wonder is just one of Jordan’s mesmerising sights. Jordan’s diverse landscape is a real treat for the eye and best experienced deep in the desert of Wadi Rum, where modest Bedouins receive you with a heart-warming welcome and traditional food. In the solitude and beauty of this landscape, you will feel more welcomed than ever.

When to go:
March – May, September – November

Travel into the heart of the Wadi Rum desert, a seemingly endless expanse of colourful rocks and desert. Journeying on camels, make your way across this remarkable landscape to an authentic Bedouin camp, where you will be welcomed for a unique lunch experience by friendly Bedouin locals. Learn the secrets of the local Bedouin who forge a living between the harsh rock and sand.

Waking early, take to the skies for a sunrise hot air balloon flight. Rising with the sun, you will gain a new perspective on the vast landscape which stretches ceaselessly out below you. Landing in a secluded spot, you will be greeted by a fresh breakfast spread, overlooking the sandstone mountains of Wadi Rum. Spend the afternoon hiking and climbing in the Valley of the Moon, a landscape which holds a mystical otherworldly aura. By night, relax around a bonfire dinner whilst you are surrounded by a show of traditional music and dancing creating an enchanting and mystical atmosphere.

Leaving Wadi Rum behind, it is time to visit the renowned Rose City, the ancient city of Petra. Spend the day exploring this incredible wonder of the world, learning about the intricate history and complex structures. As evening falls, you will visit the Lost City of Little Petra at night. With the whole site beautifully lit by candles, wind your way through narrow canyons, past the intricate tombs and temples carved into the pink sandstone cliffs. Reaching the striking Nabatean monument, you will find your dining table set up in this surreal and exclusive location.

The capital city Amman is a fascinating city of contrast, situated between the golden desert and the fertile valley, combining old-world charm with modern-day living. Alongside an expert local guide, PELORUS will arrange a unique city tour, covering intriguing archaeological sites, regal temples and elegant churches. Take a culinary journey through the city savouring the sights, smells and tastes of the traditional Jordanian food. Local restaurants are adorned with softly lit lanterns, authentic music and unique textiles that will transport you back in time.

Journey into the desert valley of Wadi Mujib, a landscape of spectacular sandstone canyons and adventurer’s playground. Embark upon a thrilling canyoning experience that will have you wading through shimmering rivers, climbing towering rock walls and cascading down fast-flowing waterfalls, as you experience the power and beauty of the natural world. The Mujib River here flows into the Dead Sea, and you can end your adventure floating in the warm, mineral-rich waters that will sooth and revive you.
