- Petra – Wadi Mujib – Dead Sea – Departure from Amman (B, L)
After early breakfast, you will checkout from camp and will be transferred to Wadi Mujib (approx. 3-hour drive).
Well equipped with life-jackets, you will maneuver your way through the canyon to explore its spectacular sandstone formations. You will hike, swim, abseil, and slide through the gorge surrounded by a wild beauty that will take your breath away.
Zig-zag ropes along the way will offer you support where needed, as the trail takes you through some mild rapids and pools of calm water. An experienced guide will always be there to help you until you reach a beautiful waterfall where you can swim, relax, and enjoy the scenery before retracing your steps to the starting point.
At 1pm, you will reach the Dead Sea where you will have lunch before enjoying a natural spa in the famous Dead-Sea mud!
With its dramatic landscape and the Dead Sea stretching at 400 m (1,312 ft) below sea level, the Jordan Rift Valley is one of the most spectacular places in the world and represents the lowest point on the face of the earth. The water of the Dead Sea is warm, soothing, and extremely salty – almost ten times saltier than the standard seawater – rich in chloride salts of magnesium, sodium, potassium, bromine and several others.
The mud of the Dead Sea looks like soft, dark-gray clay, and is filled with more than 35 different minerals. Coat yourself in this mud and bask in the sun for about an hour, until the mud dries and turns into a crust. Your beauty treatment is now almost complete: rinse off your mud mask in the Dead Sea (take care not to let the water or the mud into your eyes, nose, or mouth) and find out how soft your skin can feel.
At 6pm you will head to the airport for your departure flight. (approx. 1hour drive)
Note: Departure flights must be after 9pm.
