Transfer to Dead Sea

Transfer to Dead SeaThe Dead Sea is 75 kilometers long and from 6 to 16 kilometers wide. It is fed by the Jordan River, but it has no outlet. As its name suggests, the Dead Sea is entirely devoid of plant and animal life. This is due to an extremely high content of salt and other minerals—350 grams of salt per kilogram of water, as compared to about 40 grams in the world’s oceans.

The Dead Sea is also famous geographically as "the lowest point on earth," lying some 400 meters below sea level, the Dead Sea is today an important and rich source of minerals essential for agricultural and industrial development, as well as for the treatment of various medical conditions such as psoriasis. Visitors to the Dead Sea come away with an unforgettable swimming experience, as the high density of the water makes sinking

Virtually impossible.

Arrive to MOUNT NEBO and visit:

Mount Nebo is the mountain where Moses was allowed to see the Holy Land… and not allowed to enter it. Nowadays the mountain is a memorial site.  Here is the “Church of Moses”, built by the first Christians.  Ever since the first days of Christianity this mountain has been a holy place and a destination for pilgrimage. Like Moses, you can have a great view over Jordan, the Dead Sea and Israel.  When the weather is clear, you should even be able to see Jerusalem, which is about 60 kilometres away. 

Transfer to Madaba (15 minutes drive from Mt. Nebo

Arrive to MADABA and visit

South of Amman proudly stands the “City of Mosaics”, Madaba, perched on an archaeological site with more than 4000 years of history buried beneath it.  The quality and quantity of mosaic flooring has made Madaba one of the most prominent cities in the world for mosaics. St. George’s Church houses the world famous mosaic floor depicting a large mosaic map of Palestine. Centrally located on this mosaic floor is a detailed map of Jerusalem as it was during the sixth century AD.  At the Church of the Apostles, at the southern entrance of the city, is a mosaic floor attributed to the craftsman Salamanios, depicting the Sea, with the central figure of a woman encircled with a selection of creatures, vegetation and an inscription.

After transfer to Kerak to visit the Crusaders Castle of Kerak. 


Kerak lies about 150 km south of Amman.  It is famous of its crusader fortress in the centre of underground galleries, rooms and secret passageways and its thick defensive walls pierced by narrow arrow slits where crusader archers held out bravely but in vain for over 100 years.  It was the crusaders who made Kerak famous. Payen Le Boutellier, the lord of Montreal, built the fortress in 1142.  He made Kerak the new capital of the province because it was situated on the king’s highway, where it could control all traffic from north and south.

After Kerak transfer to Petra

Overnight: Petra.


Day6:     Petra Visit

Breakfast: buffet breakfast at your hotel in Petra.

Start the visit with a horse ride from the main gate of Petra to the entrance of the old city (around 800 meters ride).

Then walk on foot along the « Siq » to visit the rose-red city of Petr

The ancient city of Petra was built from 800 BC to 100 AD by Nabetean Arabs.  In this era Petra was a fortress, carved out of craggy rocks in an area, which was virtually inaccessible.  In the first and second century, after the Romans took over, the city reached the peak of its fame.  Petra covers an area of about 100 square km, where over 800 monuments can be found.  When shipping slowly displaced caravan routes, the city’s importance gradually dwindled; it fell into disuse and was lost to the world until 1812, when it was re-discovered by the Swiss explorer Johann Ludwig Burkhart. Nowadays Petra is Jordan’s number 1 tourist attraction, known as the “rose-red city half as old as time”. The Khazneh (the Treasury), starred in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

The Treasury is merely the first of the many wonders that make up Petra. You will need at least four or five days to really explore everything here. As you enter the Petra valley you will be overwhelmed by the natural beauty of this place and its outstanding architectural achievements. There are hundreds of elaborate rock-cut tombs with intricate carvings - unlike the houses, which were destroyed mostly by earthquakes, the tombs were carved to last throughout the afterlife and 500 have survived, empty but bewitching as you file past their dark openings. Here also is a massive Nabatean-built.

Then Transfer to Wadi Rum (1h.30 minutes drive),. 

Otherwise known as Valley of the Moon, the landscape of Wadi Rum with its immensity, colour and awe-inspiring shapes creates an almost supernatural atmosphere. The setting for the film Lawrence of Arabia and the actual location where T.E. Lawrence set his camp, whose book “The Seven Pillars of Wisdom” was named after the seven natural columns varying in height located in route to Wadi Rum.  Bedouin camps are evident in the Wadi, which is still home to a number of Bedouin families, who welcome visitors with the hospitality and generosity that Bedouins are so famous for.
