At a Glance

  • This itinerary takes in the key sites of Jordan's fascinating history, whilst still leaving plenty of time for relaxation at the end of the trip

  • It is always worth taking the King’s Highway to Petra rather than the newer Desert Highway, as it winds through glorious wadis (valleys) and small towns. There are a number of interesting places to stop, such as the Crusader Castle at Kerak or the religious sites of Mt Nebo or Madaba.

  • Even Wadi Rum is bursting with history, being the location in which Lawrence of Arabia's Arab Revolt was launched

  • Petra is quite simply incredible, and should feature highly on anyone's bucket list

  • Spending a night in the desert gives an immense feeling of space and tranquillity

  • Jordan's spas utilise Dead Sea materials, excellent for recuperating at the end of a busy itinerary

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.

Insider's View

For the most impressive view of Petra's Wadi Musa, then climb the 870 stone steps to the Monastery - not for the faint hearted but totally worth it!

Eat local when you are camping in Wadi Rum, by Bedouin barbeque, known as a ‘zarb’.

This classic tour brings together all of Jordan’s remarkable highlights, including Amman, Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea. With a fairly relaxed pace, this is a great itinerary for both couples and families.

  1. Days 1-3: Amman

    Your journey begins in Jordan's capital, Amman; a bustling city full of life and best explored on foot, where you can visit the ancient Citadel and Roman Theatre alongside your knowledgeable guide. With a plethora of rich culture all within easy reach in the downtown area, Amman is the perfect place to spend your first few nights in Jordan.

    Accommodation: The Four Seasons Hotel Amman (2 nights)

  2. Days 3-5: Petra

    Three and a half hours drive away you will find the famous ruins of Petra. Petra is simply awe-inspiring; a hidden canyon concealing incredible temples and caves carved into the famous rose-red stone. A walk up the 1,000 or so steps to the Monastery is certainly worth the effort, and there is plenty more to see throughout the site. Your local guide will be able to guide you through the Siq for that iconic first glimpse of the Treasury and will show you around the key sites in the central area, perhaps sharing a few hidden secrets as you go.

    Accommodation: The Old Village Resort (2 nights)

  3. Days 5-6: Wadi Rum

    A short drive to the south of Petra lies Wadi Rum, a desert landscape renowned for its striking colours and rock formations. You will begin your desert experience with a 4x4 tour with a local Bedouin to visit the Khazali Canyon and Lawrence of Arabia’s house. Enjoy the incredible sunset and a traditional Arabic dinner before spending the night in your own tent under the stars.

    Accommodation: Wadi Rum Desert Camp (1 night)

  4. Days 6-10: Dead Sea - Jordan Side

    A final three-and-a-half-hour drive takes you to the shores of the Dead Sea, 400-metres below sea-level. This area has drawn people to its ozone rich air, medicinal waters and UV filtered sunlight for centuries and is the perfect place to unwind after your adventures in Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum. You can relax and enjoy your final four nights here, perhaps indulging in a spa treatment and going for a float in the salty water.

    Accommodation: Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea (4 nights)


  • Amman Walking Tour

    Visit Amman's Roman Theatre, Byzantine Basilica and the Citadel and Ummayyad Palace during a walking tour of Jordan's capital city. During the tour you will also be able to take in the varying architecture and bustle of Amman's downtown area.

  • Floating in the Dead Sea

    Floating in the Dead Sea is a rather extraordinary experience, and a must-do when visiting Jordan. This is one of the few cases where pictures really can be believed, and it is possible to float practically on the surface of the mineral-rich water.

  • Jeep Ride in Wadi Rum

    Wadi Rum offers stunning vistas, wide open spaces and fascinating natural rock structures. You will have a one-hour jeep ride here to visit the Khazali Canyon, the rock bridges, Lawrence of Arabia's house and ancient Nabataean inscriptions.

  • Tour of Petra with a Local Guide

    A two-hour tour of Petra with a private local guide which will include a walk through the Siq before moving to the Treasury (El Khazneh), the intricately carved Royal Tombs, Street of the Facades and finishing at Qasr al Bint.
