Day 2 . Amman – Ajloun Reserve – Jerash – Amman

Buffet breakfast at the hotel.

Drive northwards to the Ajloun Woodland Reserve located in the Ajloun Highlands. It features a Mediterranean landscape dominated by open woodlands of oak and pistachio. The rich greenery of Ajloun has made it a popular spot for picnickers and hikers. The area has a long history of human settlements, due to its Mediterranean climate, dense forests and fertile soil.

Enjoy trekking along the Rockrose Trail, which is about 8km long. It will take approximately 3-4 hours, passing across heavily wooded valleys and ridges, inside and outside the nature reserve. This highly scenic trail passes through villages and olive orchards and offers beautiful views of the West Bank and Syria. There are some steep climbs en-route that demand a reasonable level of fitness. Picnic lunch box.
We recommend to hire a local guide who will explain the different types of vegetation as well as the medicinal purposes of the various plants.

Proceed to Jerash, which is one of the most beautiful and best-preserved Greco-Roman cities outside of Italy. Excavations have made it possible for us to marvel at two theatres, several temples, a market, thermal baths and the famous Cardo Maximus Alley of 600 metres of bordered columns.

Day 3 . Amman – Mujib Reserve – Karak – Dana Nature Reserve

Buffet breakfast at the hotel.

Today we will drive to the lowest Nature Reserve on earth. It borders the Dead Sea at 400 metres below sea level. The Mujib Nature Reserve, which surrounds Wadi Mujib, is a deep and majestic canyon that cuts through rugged highlands, and drains into the Dead Sea. Visitors are fascinated by Mujib’s serenity and pristine wilderness.

Enjoy trekking along the Siq Trail, which will take around three hours. This is a moderate hike into the main gorge of the Mujib River (the Siq). It starts at the visitor centre near the Mujib Bridge, from where you take the cantilevered walkway over the dam and follow the course of the river between towering sandstone cliffs to the base of a large waterfall. Depending on seasonal rainfall levels, the gorge may contain pools deep enough for swimming. (Please expect to get wet and bring additional clothes.)

Lunch at the Mujib Reserve Restaurant.

In the afternoon we will drive to Karak to visit the Crusaders Castle built in the 12th century AD. The castle is situated on a hilltop about 1,000 metres above sea level and is surrounded by a valley on three sides.

Day 4 . Dana Nature Reserve – Shawbak – Petra

Dana Nature Reserve is a world of natural treasures. Visitors will experience the beauty of Rummana Mountain, the timeless tranquility of Dana Village, and the grandeur of the red and white sandstone cliffs of Wadi Dana. The Dana Village area, overlooking the scenic Wadi Dana, has been occupied since 4.000 BC.

The reserve is an area of staggering beauty, history and biodiversity. The only reserve in Jordan that encompasses the four different bio-geographical zones of the country (Mediterranean, Irano-Turanian, Saharo-Arabian and Sudanian), it is a melting pot of species from Europe, Africa and Asia. Such a combination of natural communities in a single area is unique in Jordan and many of Dana Biosphere Reserve’s animals and plants are very rare. So far, a total of 800 plant species and 449 animal species have been recorded in the reserve, of which 25 are known to be endangered, including the Sand Cat, the Syrian Wolf, the Lesser Kestrel and the Spiny Tailed Lizard.

Enjoy the 8-km-long White Dome Trail. Trekking this route will take about 3 to 4 hours and contours the huge escarpments of Wadi Dana between Rummana Camp and Dana Village. It offers breath-taking views of the canyon-like Wadi and passes through terraced gardens.

Drive to Shawbak to visit the Crusader Castle. Once called “Mont Real”, Shawbak dates back to the 12th century AD. It is perched on the side of a mountain, with a grand sweep of fruit trees below.

Proceed to the greatest city of the Arab nation which dates back over 2,000 years: Petra.

Overnight in Petra.
Meals: Breakfast, Picnic Lunch Box, Dinner

Day 5 . Petra

Begin your visit with a walk or a short horse ride from Petra’s main entrance to the entrance of the old city “Al Siq”, through a narrow 350-metre-long canyon. As you reach the end of the Siq, the first and greatest monument of Petra slowly comes into view: the famous Treasury “Al Khazneh”. Petra, “The Rose City”, is an extraordinary and unique place, which was built by the Arab Nabateans more than 2,000 years ago. The Nabateans carved their monumental tombs, palaces, temples and treasury from the desert’s natural rose-coloured rocks and sandstones.

Buffet lunch at Crowne Plaza Basin Restaurant.

If you are interested you can visit the Monastery after lunch by climbing 800 steps to reach it. The Monastery is similar in design to the Treasury, but is much larger (50m high x 45m wide) and less decorated. The facade is flat on the lower level and deeply carved on the upper level, with engaged columns and two half-pediments flanking a central urn (10m high).
