Best time to Visit
Good time to visit
Average time to visit

For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.

Itinerary

Day 1-4

Amman

Your journey begins in Amman, the capital of Jordan. Amman is an excellent base to do trips to Jerash, which boast incredible Roman ruins that are well worth exploring. The Ajloun Forest Reserve also offers some wonderful treks for those who want to dive straight into the adventure. We also recommend a walking tour of the downtown area with your friendly guide, who will be able to point out key locations such as the Roman Theatre and the Citadel.

Accommodation: 3 nights
Day 4-5

Dana Nature Reserve

Journey on to the Dana Nature Reserve via the King's Highway, where you can stop off to visit historical sites en route. The crusader castle at Kerak, built in 1142, resisted countless attacks, and was said to light a beacon every night to let Jerusalem know that it had not fallen. Other highlights on the King’s Highway include the Mosaic town of Madaba and Mt Nebo, where it is believed Moses was shown the Promised Land. Spend the night deep in the heart of this beautiful scenery.

Accommodation: 1 night
Day 5-7

Dana Nature Reserve

The following day you will walk from Dana to Feynan, about a five-hour guided walk through dramatic scenery. Dana Village is located just above the Wadi Dana and is a great example of a traditional Jordanian village. What strikes you about Dana Nature Reserve is its immense tranquillity; you rarely see other travellers and when you get nearer to Feynan there are a number of Bedouin camps where you can stop for a cup of tea before proceeding to the lodge.

Feynan is lovely eco-lodge, tucked away at the bottom of the Dana Valley. There is no electricity except in the bathrooms and a few of the public areas, and so the lodge is beautifully lit by candles each evening. There is a telescope on the roof for some of the best star-gazing you are ever likely to encounter.

Accommodation: 2 nights
Day 7-9

Petra

The drive from Feynan to Petra winds through stunning scenery. Petra does not disappoint, whether you enter the site by the narrow Siq or trek in through the back route, accompanied by a local guide. You will be staying at the charming Hyatt Zaman. Whilst this is a 15-minute drive from the entrance to Petra, it is one of the most characterful properties in the country and offers panoramic views.  

Accommodation: 2 nights
Day 9-10

Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum is a stirking mix of sandstone mountains, dunes and red and gold sand. Enjoy spending the day with a local Bedouin, trekking in the desert and learning about local culture and customs before continuing on to your camp. Take in the incredible sunset and sample delicious traditional Arabic cuisine for dinner before another night of amazing star-gazing.   

Accommodation: 1 night
Day 10-12

Dead Sea - Jordan Side

Your final stop just over 3.5 hours’ drive away will be the Dead Sea for some rest and relaxation. The spa treatments are not to be missed, and the sensation of swimming (or rather floating) in the Dead Sea is something not easily forgotten. Spend two nights here unwinding and relaxing after your adventure, until it is time to return home.

Accommodation: 2 nights
