Itinerary

Day 1 Arrive to Jordan

Our representative will meet and assist you to finalize airport formalities, then drive to Amman city center/Aqaba to stay overnight there.
Regardless to arrival time; a very good chance to enjoy one or two choices in Amman (if you arrive to Amman ): walking the rainbow street or trying some local food at downtown. check out what to do in Amman.
In case of arriving to Aqaba, you want to explore with a variety of good restaurants that serves local food, it might be a great chance too to have “try dive” with professional diver instructor discovering Red Sea coral reef for an hour – if you arrive early. check out what to do in Aqaba.
Still, if you arrive from any other crossing terminal, we will meet & assist you and you might join the tour.

Day 2Dana village to the first-night camping site near Al-Mansoura village

Immediately after breakfast, all participants will be transferred to Dana village where you will meet your guide to starting the first-day hike, from Dana penetrating those mountains to the zone beneath Al-Mansourah village, the hike will contain a mid-day break to have lunch and maybe take a nap for an hour, continue the hike after lunch to the camp-site where dinner will be served and tents are erected in a wonderfully calm spot surrounded by juniper trees – Trail distance 15km

Day 3Hike to Al-Furn

This day hike starts right after breakfast, which is also served at the campsite with hot coffee, meeting some shepherds and other hikers is probably the only chance to meet people during this day, and if you are lucky you would see the famous blue lizard couple of times, and maybe foxes and wild rabbits might be seen too, other kinds of lizards will be seen almost everywhere along the trail, so many bushes of juniper, oleander, oak and pistachio trees too that creates beautiful theme with the sandstone rocks along can be seen too, at the end of the day the hike is finished at Al-Furn area as called locally where you spend the third night during the tour and second-night camping outside – Trail distance 18km.

Day 4Al-Furn – Gbour Al-Whedat

To some extent, this day trial might be tough, still, it is wild and beautiful though, passing a canyon (Ras Alfeid) and then climbing up-hill to some overseeing summit of Asharah ridge overlooking Wadi Araba, and then walking downhill to the campsite at Gbour Al-Whedat, officially you will be camping within Petra archaeological zone this night – Trail Distance 18km.

Day 5Gbour Al-Whedat to Little Petra

This day trail is easy, it is almost half day hiking from the campsite to the Bedouin camp where real toilets and hot water will be available for the first time since the begging of the trekking, early morning at the beginning of the hike there will be an opportunity to visit an old village located in the middle of naturally fortified vertical mountains (Baaja Neolithic Village) passing a very narrow gorge and climbing some waterfalls to make it to the village, dinner and overnight stay at Little Petra Bedouin camp

Day 6Petra visit, the back road from little Petra to the Monastery

After breakfast at the Bedouin camp, a guided tour exploring the main archaeological site of Petra will begin, walking for a couple of hours through little Petra back road seeing some ancient agricultural facilities, water basins, mid-day there will be a lunch break in front of  the famous rock-cut facade known as the Monastery, then walking downstairs to the ancient city center of Petra, exploring the colonnaded cardo, temples, the royal facades, so many other smaller rock-cut facades, the theater, and the most famous monument “the treasury” just an hour before reaching the hotel, literally this day hike will be the prize of the itinerary, as the integration between the man-made monuments explored this day and the natural landscape of the marvelous sandstone colorful mountains creates an unexpected theme that can’t be even felt in the most professional photos, at the end of the day after visiting the treasury all participants will walk to Petra visitors center and then to the hotel in Wadi Musa for dinner and overnight stay, and maybe a Turkish path session for 2 hours after dinner

Day 7Unguided Free day at Petra old city

Participants will have the chance to re-explore the old city of Petra by themselves, and maybe visit other attractions at the archaeological site like the high place of sacrifice, the snake monument, or other attractions, overnight stay at the same hotel in Wadi Musa

Day 8Goodbye day

Participants will be transferred to airports / border / terminals in Amman or Aqaba, depends on their departure itinerary.

Wonders Travel and Tourism had came with a fantastic itinerary and magical experience for us. Varvara created the amazing program. Muhammad must be the best tour guide in Jordan, he was born in Petra – Wadi Musa (no matter how much you study Petra, he will give you more information), We spent 8 days, which definitely was not enough seeing this amazing country with him. With a fantastic plan added special features along the way making it truly one of our best vacations ever. Of course the driver was excellent and patient with all of our wanderings and pictures. Our guide was s fluent in English and taught us a bunch of Arabic ))
Thank you Wonders Travel and Tourism for making our first trip to Jordan so memorable! We will be back for a longer stay soon! I definitely recommend them!
