Sometimes described as the 8th Wonder of the Ancient World, Petra is an awe-inspiring sight. Carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans over 2000 years ago, The Rose City of Petra was an important trade link between southern Arabia and the Far East. As one of Jordan's biggest attractions, Petra is a must see for any visitors to this area. Also explore the ruins at Jerash, a Roman city dating back to the Neolithic Age and once called ‘the Pompeii of the East'. Stay at the lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea, with an opportunity to float in its salt-dense water.

Conclude your stay in Jordan with a jeep and camel safari in Wadi Rum where the massive pillars of sandstone rock rise from the rose-red desert floor and where the Bedouin still herd their sheep across an unchanged landscape in living continuity with the ancient past.
