Jordan will show itself to be many things at once; first, a delightful revelation, then an indulgence and lastly an unforgettable memory. A treasure trove of history and a haven for anthropologists, this Middle Eastern gem of a country is as vintage as it is ethereal. From the passionate energy of Amman to the eerie stillness of the Dead Sea, and some astounding Nabatean ruins in between, Jordan Expedition will transport you back to ancient times. Jordan offers some fantastic drives with its scenic mountains, abundant coastlines and desert landscapes in Wadi Rum as it continues to lure more and more travellers each year. During this one-week expedition, you will uncover some of Jordan’s desert secrets as you drive from King’s Highway to Dead Sea Highway, the lowest point on Earth and will come back more enlightened than ever.

DAY 01

Amman

Start your Middle Eastern sojourn in Amman, the beautiful capital of Jordan. Your journey in Jordan begins as soon as your flight lands at Queen Alia International Airport. Our representative will assist you through all immigration and customs procedures. Check-in at the hotel and rest awhile before you gear up for all the adventures in store. Amman is a fascinating city of contrasts - a unique blend of old and new, situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. If a journey through history is what you’re looking for, then the best place to start would be the Citadel. At night, we have planned a dinner where you get a chance to get to know your fellow participants as you wine & dine together!

DAY 01 - Amman

DAY 02

Amman to Jerash (52 km)

Wake up at leisure and get ready to explore Amman and Jerash today. After a hearty breakfast, wear your tourist hats as we hop on a coach and make our way towards Jerash. This beautiful place is considered one of the largest and most well-preserved sites of Roman architecture in the world outside Italy. The ancient city is also well known for its colonnaded streets, temples and theatres. After exploring Jerash for a few hours, enjoy a delightful lunch in a Lebanese restaurant in Amman and later continue exploring the panoramic city of Amman. You will also get a chance to shop and pick up some souvenirs today. We will end this beautiful day having a scrumptious dinner at a local restaurant.

DAY 03

Amman to Wadi Rum (383 km)

Post breakfast we start driving to Wadi Rum. Meandering on the Hing's Highway - undoubtedly one of the most scenic and historic roads in the world - the sight of your Land Cruiser romancing those vintage slopes will be just exceptional. The most exciting part of the day begins when we reach one of the most breathtaking canyons, Wadi Al Hasa. It is the longest and the most beautiful Wadi in Jordan and considered to be Jordan's natural water park. Witness natural gardens of palm trees, warm springs, hidden pools along the Wadi as it meanders towards the Dead Sea. Also, get a slice of Heaven amidst the tranquil ambience. End the day glamping in Bedouin-style tents in the desert environment of Wadi Rum.

DAY 03 - Amman to Wadi Rum (383 km)

DAY 04

Wadi Rum (Full day off-roading)

Time to explore ‘The Valley of the Moon' - Wadi Rum. Here you will find adventure and feel the romance of the Arabian desert. This desert is a Hollywood favourite, with films like “The Last Days on Mars", “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen", “The Martian" to name a few. Enjoy driving on sand dunes, check out the graffiti inscriptions and canyons while exploring the most interesting and exciting sites of Wadi Rum. Experience a full day of off-road driving along the southern border of Wadi Rum via the old Roman Road and discover natural rock bridges and incredible sculptures. Ride a camel through the overly dramatic landscape with colourful hues of sand in pink and white! End the day with gazing at millions of stars as you witness the magic of a beautiful desert sunset.

DAY 04 - Wadi Rum (Full day off-roading)

DAY 05

Wadi Rum to Aqaba (72 km)

Today we set out for Aqaba, Jordan's only seaport because of freshwater springs in the vicinity. Don't miss the Hing Solomon's port, one of the most iconic symbols of Aqaba. It's a city steeped in rich history back to pre-biblical times ruled by the Romans, Mamluks, and Ottomans. Park your vehicles and get ready to hop on a private sailing boat where you will enjoy a delightful lunch. After a few days in Wadi Rum, Aqaba will come as a welcome change and you will enjoy the cool breeze and sparkling warm waters of the Red Sea where you can also experience diving or snorkelling to experience the bright coloured coral and fish. Put on your diving gear to enter the water and explore the abundance of marine life. After a day full of adventure set out for dinner at local restaurant.

DAY 05 - Wadi Rum to Aqaba (72 km)

DAY 06

Aqaba to Petra (124 km)

Who hasn't heard about the lost city of Petra in Jordan - one of the new 7 Wonders of the World! The magnificent hand-carved architecture of Petra is Jordan's number one tourist attraction and a UNESCO Heritage Site. After a relaxing day in Aqaba, we will drive to the ancient “rose-red" city of Petra to reach our hotel by the evening. Petra is wonderful in the day, but Petra by Night is pure magic. If you are not tired by the end of the day, we suggest a visit to Petra by Night. Take in the incredible sights as you stroll down the Siq to the Treasury, lit with over 1800 candles, with the traditional Jordanian music played by the local Bedouins in the background.

DAY 06 - Aqaba to Petra (124 km)

DAY 07

Petra (Sightseeing day)

Rise and shine and live your Hollywood dream today! Start your day with a hearty breakfast before deciding how you want to spend your day in this rose red city. Little is known about Petra's history. It was the capital city of the Nabataeans from roughly 300 BC to 100 AD. Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is one of the world's most famous archaeological sites, where ancient Eastern traditions blend with Hellenistic architecture. Petra was also named amongst the New 7 Wonders of the World in 2007 and was chosen by the Smithsonian Magazine as one of the “28 Places to See Before You Die." Visit the Siq, the Treasury, the Monastery, Street of Facades, Colonnaded Street on a walking tour.

DAY 07 - Petra (Sightseeing day)

DAY 08

Petra to Dead Sea (256 km)

After a relaxed breakfast, we will drive through the Dead Sea highway to reach the shores of Dead Sea that is hundreds of feet below sea level, making it the lowest point on earth. Sometimes all it takes to reach a new high is to dive low. This body of deep blue waters is the lowest point on Earth. Surrounded by barren hills, this remarkable body of water has an amazingly high salt content (33%), which means no animal life can survive here, and it is almost impossible to sink! We will reach our resort in Dead Sea by afternoon and conclude our drive. Post lunch, you will have enough time to float in the remarkable waters of the Dead Sea or sunbathe at the beach.

DAY 08 - Petra to Dead Sea (256 km)

DAY 09

Dead Sea (Departure)

For the last time, you shouldn't miss soaking in the waters of the Dead Sea and covering yourself with its black mud which gives a natural spa feel. All good things come to an end and so must the Jordan Expedition. Catch your flight back home with a heart full of memories, new friendships & unforgettable experiences.

    I’ve lived in the US for over 20 years and have travelled to several countries, both individually planned and with professional tour companies. But this trip with AO was the best vacation I’ve undertaken. Looking forward to many more trips with them.

    First time did an overseas trip with Tushar and Sanjay. The tour preparations were to extreme detail and the hospitality was just fantastic. I have done tours with German foreign operators as well and this tour was as good, if not better. Keep it up guys and looking forward to many more trips with you.

    We have just comeback from Jordan last week with Adventures Overland. Sanjay and Tushar spread so much of warmth and energy and pampered us so much. They made so much of efforts for all of us to become friends n by the time we left we were one big family. They have changed the way we look at travel.

    Our recently concluded expedition to Jordan was curated to perfection to the last detail by Team AO. The execution of the trip and handling of the participants were flawless. The benchmarks they have set for the services are of the highest order and the comfort of the participants is never compromised.

    This was my third trip with Adventures Overland. The best part is the planning that goes in. Be it off road driving for hours or tasting the very authentic local Bedouin cuisine! With Adventures Overland, you don’t have to worry about anything while you live your dream off the beaten track.
