Full description
Day 1:

Leaving Eilat, you will head toward the Jordanian border. You will cross via the Arava Border Crossing, entering Jordan through the famous port city of Aqaba. In Aqaba, you will experience a traditional Jordanian brunch that includes hummus, falafel, foul, salads, fresh pita bread, and more.

From there you will continue on to take in the exquisite desert landscape at Wadi Rum, which was made famous in the west by the film “Lawrence of Arabia”. You will travel through the vast scenic desert valley on a 4×4 Jeep tour, which will provide you with the best possible experience of this moon-like landscape.

Following your Jeep ride, you will make your way to a unique Bedouin experience in the heart of the dunes and cliffs of Wadi Rum. There you will enjoy classic Bedouin hospitality, including a delicious Bedouin-style dinner and a comfortable bed for the night. Before going to sleep, you can sit beneath the clear desert skies and stargaze, as you drink a cup of Bedouin tea.

Day 2:

Waking up early the next morning, you will have breakfast before boarding the bus and departing for Petra. This day of the trip is focused entirely on Petra, a famous heritage site set in a stunning red sandstone landscape. One of the new Seven Wonders of the World and the highlight of this trip, Petra was once a major crossroads of the ancient Near East, and its Nabataean people flourished through commerce.

You will have the whole morning to tour Petra with your guide, before taking a lunch break at a local restaurant. Later in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to explore on your own the various sites, such as the monastery.
