Although largely desert, Jordan has lush farming lands, dramatic mountains and beautiful beaches. Crusader castles and ancient churches dot the countryside and there are the enduring sites of Wadi Rum, the Dead Sea and the jewel in the crown of the country’s many antiquities, wonderful Petra, the ancient Nabataean city carved into the pink sandstone cliffs in Jordan’s southwestern desert.

Our 8 day adventure in the kingdom begins in Amman and includes such highlights as the ancient city of Jerash, a visit to the Dead Sea and the beach at Aqaba on the Red Sea. We then head into the spectacular desertscape of magnificent Wadi Rum where we spend the night in a luxurious bedouin style encampment, climb sand dunes, and enjoy a camel ride at sunset. We then travel to the ancient Nabataean site of Petra, one of the most celebrated sites in the region. Finally en route back to Amman we visit the imposing Shoback Crusader castle and take a stroll through the ancient villages of Dana and Madaba.
