Day 1: Meet up with your group leader and fellow adventurers at your hotel, located in the heart of Amman.
Day 2: This morning you will take a walk through the Ajloun Forest Reserve along the "Soap House Trail" to where local women make Orjan pure olive soap. Later you travel on to the Roman ruins of the city of Jerash - one of Jordan's most amazing sites. On returning to Amman you will have time to relax or explore some of the city.
Day 3: Today you head towards Petra, stopping at Madaba on the way - famous for its mosaics - and Mt Nebo. You will explore the village of Dana, on a nature reserve, and see some craft workshops. Tonight is spent in Petra.
Day 4: Spend the day exploring Petra (a fair bit of walking!) and take a 2-hour cookery class, to learn to create some authentic Jordanian dishes.
Day 5: This morning you visit 'Little Petra' to have tea with a local Bedouin family. Then head off on a drive to Wadi Rum, amid extraordinary desert scenery. A 4WD will take you into the desert - and there is the option to explore by camel. Tonight you will sleep under the stars in a desert camp.
Day 6: Today takes you to the coast (approx. 1 hour drive) for some fun and relaxation at Aqaba - Jordan's only town on the sea. This is a great place to snorkel, above some stunning coral reefs.
Day 7: This morning there's a longer drive (approx. 3 hours) but it takes you to the Dead Sea. Take a dip in this super salty water - and perhaps create your own spa mud treatment - the mud here is packed with nutrients!
Day 8: After breakfast your amazing adventure comes to an end, heading back to the airport (approx. 1 hour drive) for your flight home.
