Day 1: Jerusalem – Amman – Petra (L, D)
Depart Jerusalem by air-conditioned vehicle, traveling past the Dead Sea into Jordan and on to Jerash. Admire the ruins of this well-preserved Roman city and, after lunch, continue to Amman.
Visit Amman Citadel and enjoy sweet treats before the long drive to a Bedouin-style camp in Petra where you’ll be sleeping in a comfortable tent for two guests of the same gender, or to your 4-star hotel if you’ve upgraded.
Day 2: Petra (B, L, D)
After breakfast, enjoy a guided tour of Petra, the rock city carved by the Nabataeans about 2,000 years ago. Marvel at the Treasury and other highlights, and after your tour and lunch, opt to continue exploring independently or hike to the mountaintop monastery before returning to your camp or hotel.
Day 3: Petra – Wadi Rum – Jerusalem (B, L)
Following breakfast, visit Wadi Rum, a desert wilderness of multi-colored mountains, canyons, and dunes made famous by Lawrence of Arabia. Absorb the stunning scenery on a 4x4 tour and after a Bedouin-camp lunch, cross into Israel, and end your trip back in Jerusalem.
