Detailed Description of this trip:
Jordan is blessed with a wide range of climates, resulting in an unusually large number of different habitats and great biological diversity for a country of its size. However, many of these are extremely fragile, and can be easily disrupted. There are substantial local climatic variations, largely due to the extensive differential in heights from the lowest point at the Dead Sea, 1,320 feet below sea level, to high mountain tops at almost 6,000 feet

Zarqa Ma’in – a magnificent gorge; but there are only tombs to be seen in it. Then, a steep and difficult path leads to the hot springs of Callirhoe. In this valley we will have an easy walk, and the last 4km will be trekking to Ma’in Spa, where our 4WD will be waiting for us to transfer us via Dead Sea (float in Dead Sea for 45 minutes) to Dana Hotel (total of walking and trekking : 4 hours)(easy walk).
At Dana Hotel: budget and luxury built by Bedouins in Bedouin style, and located in village 400 years old. We will have Bedouin dinner, and overnight in very quiet village. ( B,L,D)

Wadi Dana / Fainan / Wadi Ghwier.
We start very early for an easy walk (7 hours) from the Dana village to Dana Natural Reserve in Wadi Dana: the reserve is a system of wadies and mountains that extends from the upper edge of the Rift Valley down to the desert lowlands of Wadi Araba. Dana is truly a world of natural treasures, where we are going to meet some Bedouins and have tea at their tents. We will keep walking to Wadi Fainan, the beginning of Araba desert.
Our 4WD will meet us and transfer us to Wadi Ghweir. We will make our campsite near waterfalls and between wonderful cliffs surrounding the Ghweir area. We will cook oriental dishes and stay overnight.(B,L,D)

Wadi Ghweir/Wadi Araba/Wadi Namala/Petra.
After breakfast at our campsite in Wadi Ghweir, we drive by our Jeep Safari Via Wadi Araba Desert (45 minutes) to meet up with off road climbing. The off roading by Jeep Safaris Via Wadi Namala is the only way from Wadi Araba to Little Petra (1 hour). Driving at the top of Beida Mountains is a magical view.

Free time, shopping and strolling around in the souvenir market.
Day 5 - Jordan
After breakfast our tour guide will escort you to the main sites of Petra: by walking into Petra through its world-famous siq-that dramatic chasm splitting the mountains that provides what must be the most remarkable entrance to any city. It is a unique and unforgettable experience. Once you have become familiar with the main sites of the old city and the view from the high place, you may wish to spend more days in this beautiful part of Jordan, and look a little further into the quieter, less frequented parts of Petra. In the evening, we will transfer you via King’s highway to Wadi Rum, at the visitor center. The protected area’s Jeep will meet us to transfer you to the Bedouin campsite in the middle of the desert in the sunset site.
We will have an underground BBQ, with the summer night and a Bedouin singer (lout and drum), overnight stay (all supplies and equipment of the campsite are made available). (B,L,D)
Day 6 - Jordan
Petra - Wadi Rum.
After breakfast we will walk in the desert of Wadi Rum: this, one of the world’s most colorful and unique landscapes of desert and mountain scenery, has long been inhabited by man. Rock carvings mark the passage of ancient tribes in prehistory. Thamudic inscriptions, burial mounds, ancient megaliths, and ruined buildings abound and Nabataean rock carved stairways, dams, and temples are still to be found throughout the area. It is also called "Moon Valley", because it is similar to the surface of the moon, between the wonderful colored cliffs.
In the evening we will be transferred to Amman via the desert highway, to check in again at our hotel in Amman. (B,L,D)
Day 7 - Amman
Depending on the flight schedule, we will visit the downtown area of Amman, and shopping in old Souq, or city tour and then transfer you to the airport for your departure. (B,L)
