Unravel Jordan's local industry as you trek through the woodlands of Ajloun Soap House Trail
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.
The stunning mountainous landscape of Jordan have drawn travellers for ages, but its rough-hewn grandeur has remained a secret known only to thrill-seekers. Here, we bring you off-the-beaten into Petra through "the backdoor", a water walk through scenic sandstone canyon, up to the highs of Dana Nature Reserve and through the Soap Trail walk to appreciate Ajloun's local industry.
Upon arrival, enjoy a city tour of Amman, covering highlights such as the Citadel Hill, Roman Amphitheatre, Archaeological & Jordan Folklore Museums.
On your next day, drive north to Ajloun to begin your Soap House Trail. Walk through a beautiful evergreen forest reserve, ending at the Soap House in Orjan Village where the local ladies make natural soap. Onwards, continue to Jerash, an archaeological site with theatres, temples and churches.
Bid farewell to Amman. Make a visit to St. George Church in Madaba to admire the beautiful mosaics, as well as a drive up to Mount Nebo. This is the site where Moses once viewed the Holy Land from.
Arrive in the afternoon at Dead Sea. You will have free time at leisure here to try your hand at floating in the mineral-rich water of the Dead Sea. It's a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Next day, you will depart to Kerak, a Crusader's Castle with medieval design harbouring a maze of halls and passageways. Afterwards, enjoy 2-3 hours of water walk along the narrow stream of Wadi bani Hamad, renowned as one of Jordan's most beautiful canyons.
Continue to Dana Nature Reserve. After a good night's rest, start your morning with a 2km walk along Nawatef Trail to appreciate the beauty of the nature reserve before transferring to Petra.
We dedicate an entire day to explore Petra. Instead of going through the classic route, we will let you enter Petra from the backdoor. Trek through the winding back roads with panoramic mountain vistas, arriving at the famous Monastery whilst visitors are still at the start of the site. From here, we will trek backwards towards the Nabataean tombs, the Treasury and the Siq.
At night, enjoy a unique Petra by Night experience with thousands of candles to accompany you as you walk your way to the Treasury.
Transfer to Wadi Rum and enjoy a jeep safari through its stunning desert mountain vistas, which have long inspired Lawrence of Arabia for its Martian-like landscape. Optional camel safari and hot air balloon is available at additional cost.
After a night at the desert to enjoy the beautiful night sky, next morning we will depart to Aqaba for a city tour with the Aqaba Castle, museum and the aquarium. Afterwards, depart to Aqaba airport to catch your flight home.
The Soap House Trail lasts 2-3 hours over a distance of 7km. It begins at the visitors centre of Ajloun Reserve, a beautiful evergreen forest reserve, ending up at the Soap House in the village of Orjan where local ladies make natural soap.
Visit the downtown market and city center, the beautiful houses of Abdoun neighbourhood, Rainbow Street and Jabal Amman.
Explore the best of Amman, including the Citadel Hill, Roman Amphitheatre and Archaeological & Jordan Folklore Museums.

Enjoy a 1.5-hour cruise on a Glass Boat Tour to see the varied marine life.
Trek via the winding back roads with panoramic desert & mountain vistas. This route allows you to beat the crowds, arriving at the famous Monastery whilst most visitors are still at the start of the site. Continue to explore the tombs, Treasury and Siq.
Dana village is one of Jordan's most picturesque communities, overlooking the vast Wadi Dana. Boasting distinctive Jordanian character and plenty of souk-style shops, wandering these streets is well worth the time.
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.
Built in 1161 by the Crusaders, Kerak is a perfect example of mediaeval castle design. The castle is a dark maze of stone-vaulted halls and passageways. Its most famous occupant was Reynald de Chatillon, who had a reputation for treachery and brutality.
Be marveled by the impressive mosaics of St. George Church in Madaba, followed by an excursion to Mount Nebo where Moses once viewed the Holy Land from.

Petra by Night occurs on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8.30pm. You enter the Siq, and the canyon which leads to the Treasury.
Enjoy a visit to the Royal Automobile Museum in Amman. This is a great option for motor enthusiasts, or even for those with just a mild car interest. The museum features over 70 classic cars and motorbikes, each with their own story.
Shobak is an isolated Crusader castle, located around an hour north of Petra. Whilst it is more dilapidated than other castles such as Kerak, the setting is very dramatic; perched on a hillside and offering extensive views of the surrounding area.
An adventure at Wadi Bani Hamad, one's of Jordan's most beautiful canyons. Experience a gentle 2 to 3 hours water walk along the narrow stream.
