Jordan is tightly-wrapped in mystical mystery, isn’t it? The enormous and ancient ruins are overwhelming. Everything is deeply-dug in yesteryear from the fragrant za’atar and sumac spices to the Bedouin camps and goat herds that pepper the dramatic landscape.
This trip delivers everything from the warm embrace of the Red Sea to the saline Dead Sea to the iconic Wadi Rum. You’ll jump from Jeeps to camels to boats in this itinerary that spoils at every turn with unmatched opportunities to completely submerge yourself in the Jordanian culture.
Participate in lively cooking workshops at the Beit Khayrat Souf, a unique women-owned and managed cafe. At Iraq al-Amir Cooperative, you’ll be able to participate in a paper-making or weaving project with local women of all ages who are gaining confidence through financial independence by creating and selling their handmade artisan projects.
You’ll sleep soundly knowing that you are supporting socially and environmentally responsible, low-impact stays in Jordan like the solar-powered Fenyan Ecolodge and the Red Valley domes (that are akin to sleeping on Mars) at the Memories Aicha Luxury Camp in Wadi Rum.
This trip was designed to integrate the intimacy of community integration, Petra’s iconic sites and all the tempting flavours of Jordan. This trip is truly all-encompassing from mesmerizing sunrise camel rides to Dead Sea salt scrubs to Red Sea snorkeling. You can also have breakfast with Arabian horses at the Royal Stables!
Get your fill of falafels, biospheres bursting with biodiversity, old Roman roads, henna art and a little natural Kohl eyeliner for good measure.
