What to Expect
  • 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. Petra Nights Tours does not offer travel insurances.
  • 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. Visa, MasterCard and American Express are the most widely accepted credit cards. ATMs are available in larger towns and at the airport. 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.
  • Tetanus, Diphtheria, Polio and Hepatitis A vaccinations are highly recommended. For more detailed medical information and necessary vaccinations before departure please consult your doctor. We recommend that you carry a first aid kit as well as any personal medical requirements; and you have to be in good physical health to tour Jordan. The health care system in Jordan is quite advanced, although services remain concentrated in Amman. General advice is to avoid tap water and use instead bottled water.
Itinerary

08.00 AMPick up

We will pick you up from your hotel or residence in Amman and start our 1.5-hour drive to one of the seven nature reserves of the Kingdom of Jordan and a fabulous location – Wadi Mujib Nature, historically known as the biblical Arnon River.
Wadi Al-Mujib Nature Reserve, located in the mountainous landscape east of the Dead Sea with stunning canyons of bizarre shapes and colors & in some places, deep rivers, is the lowest-lying nature reserve in the World.
Constant water flow, provided by elevation differences throughout the entire area and the specific closed atmosphere of the gorge, serve ideal conditions for the growth of many different types of plants and animals.
Choosing a wet route, you are guaranteed to need to enter the water up to your chest or even swim a couple of meters, so take a swimsuit and a bag in which your valuables (camera, phone, etc.) will not get wet. An extra dry set of clothing may be needed & comfortable, closed shoes that fit the foot well are a must.

 

2.00 PMArrival to the Dead Sea

Later in the afternoon we will arrive at one of the private beaches on the Dead Sea coast, where we will have lunch & use the opportunity to practice one of the most unusual types of recreation – swimming on the surface of the Dead Sea. It is impossible to drown here due to the high salinity of the water (260-300%), but you can freely lie on its surface and read a newspaper. There is no point in diving either – most likely it will not succeed.
The uniqueness of the Dead Sea has been known for centuries. This is the only place in the world with a special combination of exceptional healing benefits: special solar radiation and climatic conditions, an oxygen-rich atmosphere, a salty sea rich in minerals, thermal mineral springs and mineral mud. In the old days, the water and salt of the Dead Sea were exported to Italy by the Roman nobility. Judean asphalt is a bituminous liquid that rises to the surface of the lake and was used for industrial and medical purposes. From the plants growing on the shores of the lake, and especially from the balsam, valuable and prestigious cosmetics, perfumes, and medicines were produced. They were of such economic importance that wars were even fought over them. Historical Fact – Mark Antony conquered the Dead Sea area for Cleopatra.
