Day 0128th March 19
- Arrival in Amman – Transfer to Petra (L, D)
Note: Arrival in Amman must be before 09:00am.
Upon your arrival at the Amman airport (at 9:00 am), a Rahhalah representative will meet you at the exit point.
You will then be transferred to Petra (a drive of approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes), where you will embark on a signature walk through this famous, UNESCO Heritage site. Like Indiana Jones, you will pass by the Treasury, and you will continue following the footsteps of the Nabateans, exploring the architectural marvels created on the rocks, and the influences of various cultures like the Roman, the Egyptian, and, later on, the Islamic one.
Snacks and water will be provided during this 5-hour trek. You will end in a traditional restaurant in Wadi Musa where you will have a taste of authentic Jordanian cuisine.
After lunch, you will be transferred to your hotel/camp in Wadi Musa to check-in and relax.
At around 8pm, you will return to Petra to explore its wonders by night (2 hours), enjoying the soft light from hundreds of candles and the moon reflecting on the ancient ruins. The path will take you through the narrow gorge that leads to the Treasury, where you will be welcomed by the candles, twinkling like stars on earth. The soothing sounds of the Bedouin music will complement this experience that is so beautiful it almost feels spiritual.
Overnight at a 4* hotel or camp.
Day 0229th March 19
- Petra – Wadi Rum (B, L, D)
After an early breakfast, you will embark on a small hiking journey through Little Petra. Upon your return to the camp, you will check out and head with the cars to Wadi Rum (a drive of approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes).
In Wadi Rum, you will be guided to a remote campsite where you will lunch on traditional BBQ prepared by a local Bedouin family that still follows the Bedouin lifestyle and will be keen to share their culture and traditions with you.
After lunch, you will go on a 2-hour Jeep joyride that will offer you the opportunity to enjoy the scenic landscapes tucked deeply into the Rums desert, such as the Siq of Lawrence and other gorgeous rock formations. You will finish watching the sunset at a picturesque location close to the campsite and, then, you will ride the Jeeps again to reach the camp where you will rest for the night. In the evening, you will taste the traditional Zarb – a delicious Bedouin treat – and you will sleep under the stars.
Overnight at the camp.
