Day 5

Dead Sea

Today is free to relax on the waters of the Dead Sea or maybe have a spa treatment.

Day 6


Explore Petra, where you can choose to start your day with a hike. Enter Petra via ‘The Back Door’, avoiding most of the tourists. This way follows a Nabataean route out of the valley and skirting around the final mountain on a natural rock terrace, which has been ‘improved’ for the safety of walkers. Even so, it still narrows slightly before reaching a hidden plateau high above the impressive chasm of Wadi Siyyagh. Just beyond, carved into the cliff face, ‘The Monastery’ suddenly comes into view, where there is a Bedouin café for refreshments if you would like.

When to travel

jan feb mar apr may jun jul aug sep oct nov dec

July and August are the hottest and driest months of the year, especially in Amman and the Jordan Valley, and in the desert areas, with temperatures over 36°C. Spring and autumn are the most pleasant times to visit with clear, sunny days and moderate temperatures. The winter months from December to March can be very cold, particularly in Amman, with snow, rain and wind, but there is little rainfall in the desert regions and in Aqaba, which makes a pleasant wintertime resort. About 75 percent of the country can be described as having a desert climate with very little annual rainfall.
