Itinerary

Day 1 Arrival Amman Airport - Hotel in Amman

Upon your arrival At Amman Airport, our representative will wait for you with a sign after you exit the customs. Then, our driver will transfer you for about 50 minutes to your hotel in Amman and helps you with the check-in. You will have the rest of the day to yourself and we will start our adventure the next day.

Day 2Amman Hotel - Mt Nebo - Wadi Mujib Siq Trail – Dead Sea Hotel (B = Breakfast)

Today in the morning we will go to Mount Nebo, which is the scene of many biblical canonical texts, the supposed burial place of Prophet Moses and the place from where God showed him the Promised Land. From the height of the mountain, you can see the panoramic valley of the Jordan River, the Dead Sea, Jericho and Jerusalem, the ancient Moabite plains stretching east of the Jordan River.
Then, we will drive to Wadi Mujib, where you will walk along the Siq Trail, a breathtaking sandstone canyon. The experience begins with a laddered platform that provides access to the passive river with nice photo spots between the naturally carved walls. Then you will adventure into an opposing stream lazy river with few spots that will challenge your hiking techniques. At the end, you will find a relaxing spot next to a water fall where you can enjoy the little fish that eat the dead skin from your feet. Enjoy the water ride & gliding through the river while admiring the sky and wall formation. To complete the experience, we will have to return through the same path. The trail is fun, but it does require a bit of strength and hiking abilities. Finally, you will be transferred to your Dead Sea Hotel, where you will spend your night at the lowest point on Earth.

Day 3Dead Sea Hotel - Wadi Ben Hammad - Kerak Castle - Dana Hotel (B, Lunch Box, Dinner)

Today after breakfast we will visit another favorite tourist destination, a hidden gem down a challenging road – Wadi bin Hammad.
The hiking will take around 4 hours, where you will enjoy the charming oasis in the middle of the desert with a flowing river, hanging gardens & small waterfalls.
Half of the time you will walk in a warm water of the ankle-high river getting a thrill out of the surrounding beauty.
Our next destination is one of Jordan’s most remarkable sights, with a history that can easily fill more than one historical thriller. We are talking about the Al Karak or Crac des Moabites fortress, covered with myths and legends, built by crusaders from Europe about eight hundred years ago.
For centuries, the fortress remained a strategically important point, giving the Crusaders complete control over the surrounding area.
Important trade routes crossed here, providing the rulers of the city with good income.
El-Karak is one of the examples of a fortress that has absorbed the features of the planning and construction of the defense of the Crusaders, Ayyubids and Mamluks and is worthy of your attention.
We finish our exhausting day with dinner and an overnight stay in the heart of Dana Biosphere Reserve.

 

Day 4Dana 3 hours hike - Little Petra - Petra Hotel (B)

On the 4th day, you will hike through the Dana nature reserve, a system of valleys and mountains that descends from an altitude of 1,600 meters above sea level down to the Arabia Valley desert.
The reserve is in two main biogeographic zones and in four vegetation zones.
A variety of amazing landscapes open to the eyes of travelers – only here you can simultaneously see forested alpine, rocky slopes and golden sands dunes. Nature is represented in all its diversity, here you can see quite rare plant species. About seven hundred species of plants are registered in the reserve, and 285 species of animals are waiting for their turn to be studied by scientists. The discovery of 45 endangered animal species at Dana Reserve made it a place of world importance.
However, not only the wildlife attracts the reserve. This part of Jordan is also famous for its archaeological and cultural sites. About 100 archaeological discoveries were made here, including the ancient coal mines of Wadi Feynan, considered one of the most important monuments in Jordan, discovered during excavations outside Petra, were presented to the world.
Our next stop is the splendid landscape of Little Petra and Siq Al Barid, a modest gorge that leads into the famous area of carved tombs and monuments.
Finally, we will have a short ride to your Petra hotel to spend the night.

Day 5 Petra visit – Wadi Rum Camp (B, Dinner)

On the 5th day, we will visit the mysterious and unusual rocky city which was even mentioned in the Bible.
It was here that Moses extracted water from the rock, and the local stream is still called Wadi Musa, which means “the river of Moses”.
We are talking about the unusual, ancient, rock-hewn city of Petra, which for many centuries has amazed the mind with its majestic appearance and pink-red color of all its buildings.
In ancient times, the city was located at the intersection of two important trade routes: one connected the Red Sea with Damascus, the other – the Persian Gulf with Gaza off the Mediterranean coast.
Land trade gradually weakened and Petra lost its influence in the region after the Romans opened sea trade routes to the East.
A local guide will give you a short introduction of this unique place as you walk through the Siq,  the narrow canyon with picturesque colors, leading you to the wonderful city of Petra.  Explore the historical sites, including the Street of Facades, the Royal Tombs, the Theater, and Qasr Al Bint. You will have plenty of time to explore or climb the 800 stairs to the Monastery El Deir, enjoying the amazing views of Wadi Araba.
After Petra sightseeing, you’ll be transferred to one of the most beautiful deserts in the World – Wadi Rum for dinner & overnight at a campsite.
 

Day 6 Wadi Rum 3 hours jeep ride - Amman Hotel (B)

On the sixth day, board our 4×4 Jeep and let’s take a journey through the world’s most impressive desert landscape, timeless and untouched by civilization – Wadi Rum.
During our 3-hour tour of this amazing place, timeless and untouched by civilization, we will stop at the unique arches and canyons formed as a result of the influence of the scorching sun and restless winds.
It is equally interesting for both rock climbers and ordinary tourists keen on history and geography.
Some of the rock paintings on the territory of the Wadi Rum reserve are more than four thousand years old and since 2011 the Wadi Rum desert has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.
At the end of this last leg of our journey, we drive to a hotel in Amman to fully relax before returning home.

What to Expect

  • It is essential that you read our booking conditions we sent to you by email and can be checked online. The booking conditions are an important part of the contract for your holiday. They set rules, guidelines and conditions in which we work with you and determine payment and cancellation policy. When you book with us we assume the booking conditions are read, understood and agreed.
  • Travel insurance is highly recommended for all travelers. At a minimum your travel insurance must provide cover against personal accident, death, medical expenses, emergency repatriation and personal liability. We also strongly recommend it covers cancellation as all deposits paid are non-refundable, curtailment and loss of luggage and personal effects. Go Aqaba Travel does not offer travel insurances.
  • At the airport our representative waits for you with a Go Aqaba Travel sign after you passed through the customs. At the Arava Border in the south we will meet you inside the Jordan border terminal, at Allenby Bridge and Sheikh Hussein Border outside the Jordan border terminal.
  • Most nationals obtain the Jordanian Visa at Amman Airport and the land borders upon arrival. Except for arrivals through the Allenby Bridge/King Hussein Bridge where all nationals need the visa in advance. The visa fee upon arrival is 20 Jordanian Dinar per person and has to be paid in cash; an exchange booth is available. Your passport has to be valid minimum 6 month while traveling in Jordan. If you are not sure about your visa status contact us or the Jordanian embassy in your country of residence.
  • The official currency is the Jordanian Dinar (JD), which is divided into 100 piastres or 1,000 fils. Notes are in denominations of JD 50, 20, 10, 5 and 1. It is easy to change foreign currency at banks, moneychanger or better hotels, most accepted are USD, GBP and Euros. Banks are closed on Fridays and Saturdays.

The maximum daily withdrawal amount is around JD 500, depending on your particular card. Check with your bank for information on ATM international fees. We recommend that you carry some cash in case ATMs can not be accessed, are broken down or run out of cash.
  • It is necessary to mention that Jordan is not a cheap destination. But as every traveller is different, please consider your own spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, food and shopping. The costs for lunch and dinner vary. If you are happy with a sandwich or a shawarma at local restaurant or take away, this is already available for 3-4 USD per person (without drinks), but better restaurants charge 16-20 USD per meal/per person (no drinks), same at 4 star hotels for main buffet 20-30 USD per meal/per person. A large bottle of water in the local market is 70 Cent, a soft drink (0.30l) is 40 Cent, in tourist areas the rates are higher.
  • Jordan is characterized by a Mediterranean climate and the best travel time is spring and autumn, March until May, September until November. Summer is hot and sunny, especially in Aqaba and at the Dead Sea. These two areas are in turn ideal for a winter break due to the mild temperatures (16-22 °C) in this season. In the rest of the country winter weather can be cool, with rain and occasional snow. Jordan is a very sunny country with average daily sunshine hours ranging from six to seven in winter and twelve to thirteen in summer. Although summer temperatures are high, the nights are rather cool.
