After pick up from your hotel in Eilat, you will cross the border into Jordan, and make your way to Petra along the desert highway. You will spend the first day of your tour with a guide, discovering the secrets of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Nabatean city of Petra. Inhabited since prehistoric times, this Nabataean carved-city, situated between the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, was an important crossroads between Arabia, Egypt and Syria-Phoenicia. 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. Overnight in hotel in Petra including breakfast.
The following day is dedicated to an independent exploration of the site: you can return to your favourite place, or hike along one of the trails, such as that to the impressive Monastery. In the evening, enjoy an authentic Jordanian dinner at a Bedouin Campsite in Wadi Rum, out in the open beneath thousands of stars. After an experiential night in the desert, sleeping in tents, wake up to enjoy a Jeep tour in the Wadi Rum Nature Reserve, guided by local Bedouins. Wadi Rum is like a moonscape of ancient valleys and towering weathered sandstone mountains rising out of the white and pink coloured sands, and offers some of the most spectacular desert scenery you are ever likely to see. Home to the many exploits of the famous T.E. Lawrence during the 1917-1918 Arab Revolt, Wadi Rum was used for the desert shots of the film “Lawrence of Arabia”.
After experiencing Wadi Rum, head to the port city of Aqaba for a walk through its traditional Arab markets before crossing back to Israel and ending your tour in Eilat.
