Itinerary

Day 1

Arrive into Amman Airport & head to the Dead Sea

Meet and assist by Jordan Skies representative upon arrival at Amman Queen Alia International Airport, drive to Dead Sea: At 431m below sea level – the lowest point on earth – the Dead Sea is a body of intense blue water, polished smooth like oiled skin on a windless day in winter and ruffled into whitecaps by the summer winds.

The therapeutic waters of the Dead Sea, combined with the Jordan Valley’s fertile land and warm climate, have attracted people to live, hunt, and farm in the area as early as the Stone Age. One of the world’s most amazing places, the Valley, is a dramatic, beautiful landscape, which at the Dead Sea, is over 410m (1,312 ft.) below sea level making it the lowest point on the face of the earth.

While over 200 archaeological sites have been discovered, many more are still waiting to be found.

The area is full of biblically important sites as it is where God first spoke to man, where He gave His Ten Commandments to Moses, where Job suffered and was rewarded for his faith, and where Jacob wrestled with the angel of God. This is also the site of ancient Sodom and Gomorrah, the site of the story of Lot, and where Lot’s wife was turned into a pillar of salt.

Day 2

Dead Sea - Petra visit - Amman

Breakfast at the hotel, head to the site to visit Petra: Top choice archaeological site in Petra the spectacular sandstone city of Petra was built in the 3rd century BC by the Nabataeans, who carved palaces, temples, tombs, storerooms and stables from the soft stone cliffs.

Today it is a World Heritage Site that needs little introduction; suffice to say, no visit to Jordan is complete without exploring the remarkable Ancient City.

The Ancient City is approached through the 1.2km-long, high-walled Siq – a crack in the rock, torn apart by tectonic forces.

Just as you start to think there’s no end to the Siq, you catch breathtaking glimpses ahead of the most impressive of Petra’s sights, the Treasury, known locally as Al Khazneh.

Carved out of iron-laden sandstone to serve as a tomb, the Treasury gets its name from the misguided local belief that an Egyptian pharaoh hid his treasure in the top urn.

The Greek-style pillars, alcoves and plinths are truly masterpieces of masonry work.

The ancient city of Petra is one of Jordan’s national treasures and by far its best known tourist attraction. Located about three hours south of Amman, Petra is the legacy of the Nabataeans, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2,000 years ago.

Admired then for its refined culture, massive architecture and ingenious complex of dams and water channels, Petra is now a UNESCO World Heritages Site and one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Inhabited by the Nabateans, Edomites and Romans, Petra brought together the knowledge and skill of these civilizations to create this world wonder.
Caravans laden with incense, silks, spices and other exotic goods would rest at Petra. But their main wealth came from the fact that Petra was an important hub for the lucrative trade routes that linked China in the east with Rome in the west.

Accommodation

Hotel in Aqaba for overnight, option to upgrade to 4 or 5 hotel

Day 3

Explore Amman

The ever-expanding city, originally built on seven hills, dates back to the Stone Age when our Neolithic ancestors roamed the earth. Amman exemplifies the evolution, development and survival of a small city through its expansions during the Early Bronze Age, its development as a city state through the Iron Age and into its role in Assyrian, Babylonian and Persian empires.

The city, known by several different names such as Amman, Ammon, Rabath-Ammon and Philadelphia, played key-roles in multiple civilizations.

Wherever you are in Jordan, you’re never too far away from a conversation about food. Whether the discussion is a heated argument on the busy streets of Amman over the city’s best kunafe or one in the coastal towns of Aqaba as the catch of the day comes in, or in the most remote part of the Wadi Rum desert you’ll doubtlessly end up talking about food, and if you’re talking about it you’re more than likely to be eating it with your Jordanian hosts later!
