    You begin by flying into Jordan’s capital, Amman. You will be met by your driver at Queen Alia International Airport, and transferred to your luxury hotel located just steps from the city centre. 

    After breakfast the following morning, you will set out on a privately guided tour of Amman’s atmospheric old quarter, uncovering traditional souks, coffee shops, churches and mosques along the way. You’ll also visit the mighty Roman Theatre and Nymphaeum, dating back to the Roman period when Amman was known as Philadelphia, as well as the magnificent ancient Citadel. 

    Later in the afternoon, you’ll venture to the age-old city of Jerash, which has been continuously occupied for more than 6,500 years. Within the city’s walls lie an incredible collection of ruins, second only to Petra in magnificence, that include Hadrian’s Arch, the Temple of Artemis and the Oval Plaza.

You’ll then drive to historic Mount Nebo, visiting its church and Moses Memorial and taking in a stunning view across the Jordan Valley. 

    You’ll then head south to your award-winning eco-lodge in the Dana Biosphere Reserve, a stunning wilderness comprising 320 square kilometres of spectacular mountains and wadis, diverse wildlife and thousands of years of history.

    Carved into the sheer cliff face by the industrious Nabataeans some 2,000 years ago, the ‘lost city’ of Petra is a World Heritage Site that needs little introduction. Accessed by the narrow canyon known as the Siq, you’ll discover much of the city’s magnificent rock-hewn architecture including Al-Khazneh (the Treasury), Ad Dier (the Monastery) and the Street of Facades.
