JEWELS OF JORDAN




Jordan is a hospitable and historic land and home to many of the most spectacular sites of the Middle East; the Red Rose City of Petra; rocky shores of the Dead Sea; the beauty and tranquillity of Wadi Rum. This is a majestic and captivating country.

We’ll explore the capital Amman, with its colourful bazaars, ancient citadel and museums, and visit the best preserved Roman city in the Near East at Jerash, with its spectacular temples and forum.

We will take a dramatic walk from the hot springs at Ibn Hammad, en route to our campsite at Dana, and from where we walk to a stunning Eco lodge at Feynan. We’ll explore the spectacular canyon and sand dunes of Wadi Rum, enjoying the quiet and colour of the desert, and visit the Red Rose city of Petra, set deep inside the narrow gorge with its walls rising two hundred metres from the desert floor. Petra is the iconic picture of Jordan and we fully explore the ancient site.

En route to Madeba, we’ll see the mighty crusader castles at Shobak and Kerak and have the opportunity to swim (or float!) in the Dead Sea, and visit Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. At Madeba, we’ll see the ancient mosaic map of the Holyland.  This is a journey through history, seeing a fascinating country at its best.

Please note: The December departures follow a slightly different itinerary. Please ask for details or see our website.




WALKING GRADES


Grade 5 walks will be full days, of up to 6 hours, and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent, paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding. Departures with a sightseeing element will be accompanied by a local guide for a minimum of half a day. The Pioneer grade indicates that the local conditions, facilities, and transport could be basic and holiday itineraries may change at short notice - but the experience will be well worth it!

  • Accommodation
    Faynan Eco Lodge

    The majority of our accommodation is in hotel stays where rooms are en-suite twin bedded and single rooms and have the usual facilities including telephones and TVs. 

    One hotel that deserves a special mention is the Feynan Eco Lodge. Set in the heart of the Dana Biosphere Reserve, the solar powered lodge offers the most developed eco experience in Jordan made possible, in part, by the Jordanian Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, and a real chance to disconnect from the modern world. 

    The hotel, while simple in style and facilities, offers warm Bedouin hospitality and where possible locally sourced excellent vegetarian food, with many traditional Jordanian specialities. Enjoy being close to the mountainous landscape whilst unwinding in the tranquil courtyards and terraces or resting in your candlelit en-suite room. There is a lot on offer at the lodge to learn about the local culture and environment, such as star gazing on the roof terrace. As it is an eco-lodge the rooms have no electricity points, but you can recharge at the lobby where free internet is also available.

    “Feynan, a shining star among the green lodges worldwide.” – Forbes magazine.

    At Wadi Rum we stay at a Bedouin desert Camp offering a “back to nature” experience. The tented accommodation with dinner that has been baked in the ground offers a wonderfully special and authentic experience. For more information please see the Holiday Information sheet.
