Day 1 : urban exploration by night !
Hello new Explorogist, how was your flight? Once you arrive at the airport, our private driver will be there, waiting for you. He will drop you at the first luxury hotel right in the heart of Amman. Be ready, Amman is a fascinating city of contrasts with a unique blend of old and new buildings. We’ll all meet at 6:00 p.m in the lobby, where our host will give us a warm welcome and begin directly with a deep exploration of Amman city! First of all, we are going to enjoy a unique panorama over hilly Amman. Then, we will stroll along an alley, drive through the busy Souq well known for its spice market, and continue to Jabal Amman. We will enjoy a tasty dinner in a typical Arabic restaurant. Finally, we will cruise in the new parts of the city, passing by the King Hussein Bin Talal Mosque and the areas of Abdoun and Dabouk.
This first day will be intense ! Enjoy, Explorogist.

Day 2 : Visit of Jerash and cooking class in Amman
On day 2, our host will show us the fantastic and historic city of Jerash. We will leave our hotel around 08:00 a.m to explore this ancient Roman provincial city. On the program: the spectacular forum, the Roman colonnaded, the Nymphaeum, the Temple of Artemis, etc. This is incredible! After this cultural morning, we will go back to Amman city, where we will enjoy free time. At 04:00 p.m, it will be time for us to become fantastic cooking chefs. It’s time for our Jordan cooking class. Mmmh!
Inlcuded: Breakfast and dinner
Day 3 : Between castles and oasis
At 09:00 a.m., our driver will pick us up at the lobby of our luxury hotel in Amman and drive us to the eastern part of the capital, 80 km away. Explorogist, savor the moment as a journey out of the frantic city to make a deep dive into the desert plains of eastern Jordan. We will visit three stunning castles: the Qasr Amra, the Kharana Castle, and the Qasr Al-Azraq. We will then continue to Azraq Oasis, which is a unique wetland through approximately 12,000 square kilometers of desert. There, nature is lush and preserved. The magic word: SE-RE-NI-TY!
During the afternoon, we will go back to Amman, where we will enjoy our free time. Do not hesitate to rest or to prepare your baggage for our next stop: the fabulous Petra.
Day 4 : Petra through the king’s way
Once again, we wake up early, and we leave our fantastic hotel around 07:00 a.m. We will first visit the “City of Mosaic” or Madaba, where we will appreciate the famous 6th century mosaic map of Jerusalem. Then, we will drive to Mt Nebo, which peaks with approximately 710 meters (2,330 ft) high overlooking the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and parts of the Holy Land. This view is amazing! We will continue to drive through Dana Reserve’s highway. Next step: the Shobak Castle. This is a castle of the crusaders built-in 1115.
And now, relax, we are arriving in Petra City…
Day 5 : One of the seven wonders
The same thing again, we wake up early. We told you, Explorogist… this trip is intense! Prepare yourself for unforgettable trekking among sandy and rocky tracks. Impossible to miss Petra, which is the biggest attraction of Jordan and was first established around the 6th century B.C. by the Nabatean Arabs. They are a nomadic tribe that was settled in the area and initiated the foundation of a commercial empire that extended into Syria. We will walk through the canyon or so-called Siq to see the most beautiful and stunning monument: The Treasury Building.
After this breathless moment, we will move directly to our exceptional desert camp.
Inlcuded: Breakfast and dinner
Day 6 : Waking up in the desert
After breakfast, let’s go in a four-wheeled Jeep with a local Bedouin driver. We will have 3 hours to explore fantastic sites such as the Nabataean temple, the Lawrence spring, the Little bridge, the Red Sand dune, the Khazali Canyon, the “Valley of the Moon”, etc. Wadi Rum is a vast, silent, and is one of the most magnificent desert landscapes of Jordan. It is also the home of the Zalabia Bedouins, who are still living traditionally. After this fantastic exploration, we will head to the Dead Sea, where we will enjoy our last time together.
Day 7 : already time to say goodbye
Day 7 is already our last day together. We will organize your way back to the airport. But before leaving, if you have enough time, feel free to enjoy Dead Sea’s landscape and great weather. Make the most of these last hours in the middle of nowhere to breath deeply and to revitalize yourself in order to go back home in great shape and with a head full of strong memories.
