We’ll explore sites including entry by the Siq, the Treasury, Street of Facades, Royal Tombs, Roman Theatre, Byzantine church and depending on our physical condition, possibly hike up over 900 steps to visit ad-Deir–the Monastery–Petra’s largest carved façade. We will return to Wadi Musa for an excellent sunset, then return to Petra to enjoy the night show. Return to our hotel for the night.

06.00am proceed again through the siq to watch the sunrise on the Treasury in perfect photographic light, then return to our hotel for breakfast. We’ll check out and transfer approx. 15 minutes to visit Siq al Barid (“Little Petra”). It was the main Nabatean caravansaries point outside the bounds of the city of Petra. Then we’ll drive approx. 2 hours to Wadi Rum, check in our campsite. Are you ready for some fun? We’ve got a 3-hour Jeep tour of the moonscape terrain T-E. Lawrence rightly described as “vast echoing and God-like.” We’ll end the day by enjoying the sunset, then return to our campsite to refresh. Get ready for a traditional dinner and overnight camping, where you’ll have a chance to enjoy the dazzling night skies of Wadi Rum.
07 May 2022 • Wadi Rum – Wadi Mujib – (PCR TEST) Dead Sea (B, L, D)
Let’s greet the morning with a sunrise camel excursion, then return to our campsite for breakfast. After checkout, we will drive approx. 4 hours to enjoy the Siq Water Trail. It starts at the Visitor Center near the Mujib Bridge, where we will take the cantilevered walkway over the dam and follow the course of the river between towering sandstone cliffs to the base of a large waterfall. Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, the gorge may contain pools deep enough for swimming. This is an ideal walk to take slowly and enjoy the cool water and shade, especially in the heat of the day. Continue approx. 25 minutes to check in our resort at the Dead Sea for overnight. We will arrange for a professional to do the PCR Test for you at the resort tonight.
Wadi Mujib Requirements: Must be at least 18 years old, know how to swim and have a reasonable level of fitness.

Nebo, from which Moses viewed Jerusalem, take in the view of the Jordan Valley, Dead Sea, Jericho and (if it’s clear) the distant spires the hills, and Mount of Olives. We’ll, visit the contemporary church with its display of mosaics from the succession of pilgrimage churches on this venerated spot. How did they do that? Well, we will stop at the Mosaic Workshop to learn about Mosaic Arts. Later in the afternoon we will visit a local family house for a late traditional lunch and cultural exchange visit.
