Leaving Eilat, you’ll cross into the Hashemite Kingdom, traveling towards Aqaba. Once there, you can explore the markets, enjoy a coffee and lunch-break, and relax at your own pace before heading towards Wadi Rum. Once in Wadi Rum, you will check into the Bedouin Camp and enjoy optional activities in the area such as hiking or camel rides, or simply take in the surroundings. Optional activities can be arranged on the spot, locally. In the afternoon, head out on a Jeep Safari tour in the Wadi Rum desert. This is one of the most breathtaking landscapes on earth where the magic of the desert comes to life. The next morning, after breakfast, we’ll transfer to the lost city of Petra and enjoy a guided tour of the UNESCO World Heritage site and see the main highlights including al Siq, the Petra Treasury, the Obelisk Tomb, and more. Enjoy free time in Petra to explore on your own, and soak up the stunning scenery. During your free time, hike to the Monastery or visit other sites in Petra. After a day of sightseeing and exploring, travel back to the border and cross back into Eilat, with drop off at your hotel, and endless memories of Jordan.
