Day 1 - London to Aqaba
Departing London Gatwick in the morning for our direct flight (approx. 5hrs 40mins), we arrive into Aqaba in the late afternoon where we will be welcomed by our Jordanian team at the airport and transferred to our hotel. Aqaba is fringed with palm trees, lapped by the crystal-clear waters of the Gulf of Aqaba, cooled by a steady northerly breeze, and ringed by mountains that change in colour throughout the day. Overnight in 5 Star Doubletree hotel in Aqaba and dinner.
Day 2 - Aqaba to Wadi Rum – Seven Pillars of Wisdom – Um Fruth Bridge
After breakfast, we will head to the stunning Wadi Rum Desert to start our incredible trek. This is a unique opportunity to walk and talk together.
Our trek starts at the Seven Pillars of Wisdom and the route takes us off the beaten track and through the Jebel mountain area. We trek through the canyons and Siqs, (Arabic for ‘gateway’), enjoying the impressive landscapes. We will have lunch along the way. Tonight, we will learn about the Bedouin culture while we sit under amazing desert skies, enjoying a traditional ‘Mansef’ feast prepared by our desert cooks. Overnight wild camping and full board.
Day 3 - Um Fruth Bridge
After breakfast we continue our journey to Um Fruth Bridge, taking in the majestic canyons along the way. Along our route we will pass the petroglyphs and inscriptions which are ancient drawings of humans and animals, thought to be instructions and messages to fellow travellers about the route and hidden springs. At this point, there is a chance to use the inscriptions as a prompt for discussions - what is our legacy? How can we communicate our messages effectively? What will we leave behind?
We enjoy lunch by Um Fruth Bridge before taking jeeps through the Burrah and Lawrence Canyon to our static Desert Camp. Tonight, we will enjoy a celebratory meal, experiencing the traditional 'Zarb'cooking and local music - watch out you may be asked to dance!! Overnight Desert Camp and full board.
Day 4 - Ancient City of Petra
After a very early breakfast we say farewell to our desert crew and head to the ancient city of Petra. We will have time to explore this fascinating Nabataean city dating back to 1st century BC. We then transfer to our hotel for a final night celebration. Overnight 5 Star Hotel Petra or Amman and full board.
Day 5 – Amman and fly home
After breakfast, we head to Amman airport for our flight home. Meals included breakfast.
