Description

Your three adventure-filled days begin in the early morning at Abraham Hostel Tel Aviv. Drive through the fertile Jordan Valley to the Sheikh Hussein border crossing in the North. Your first stop is Jerash, one of the world’s best-preserved Roman towns. Journey through time as you walk the colonnaded streets behind the impressive Hadrian’s Arch, and discover the wonderful blend of Greco-Roman architecture telling 4,000 years of Mediterranean history. After lunch at a local restaurant, head to the capital. Its hilltop Citadel is the perfect place to learn more about Amman’s cultural importance and eventful past, featuring palaces, a museum and the Temple of Hercules, allowing panoramic views across the city. As the evening descends, drive to a Bedouin camp near Petra. Welcomed by a traditional dinner, enjoy authentic Bedouin hospitality beneath the clear desert skies and listen to local music, before heading to rest in your tent’s comfortable bed. After breakfast, embark on an entire day dedicated to exploring Petra. The impressive highlight of this trip, the world wonder was carved into the red stone by the Nabataeans around 2,000 years ago, when it was a major crossroads of ancient civilizations. Let your guide explain Petra’s complex history, followed by lunch in a local restaurant. In the afternoon, explore the sites by yourself, each a stunning example of perfectly symmetrical Hellenistic architecture, before heading back for dinner and another night in the Bedouin camp. The last day starts with an exciting ride through the exquisite and virtually untouched desert landscape of Wadi Rum. A 4x4 jeep will take you to stunning sights and viewpoints, past towering cliffs of weathered stone and desert animals. After lunch at a local restaurant, head to the Allenby Bridge border crossing, and by late evening arrive back in Tel Aviv.
