Day 1: Amman - Petra: 3 hours driving from Amman
Depart to the south toward the Nabatean Red Rose City of Petra that is considered one of the wonders of the world. A city 139 miles (225 kilometers) from Amman that was carved in stone more than 2000 years ago in order to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. Visit its towns, damns, and water channels and enjoy a walk along the narrow siq, a path which is the main entrance to the city. The first thing you will see is the Khazneh, which was believed to hold countless treasures. You will also see other monuments such as The Monastery and the Altar of Sacrifice. In the afternoon you will move towards Wadi Rum, called the valley of moon, where the movie Lawrence of Arabia was filmed and lately The Martian. You will spend the night in a Bedouin camp inside Rum reserve, in a very unique calm and quiet spot whilst having dinner cooked according to Bedouin style and evening activities (The camp consist of Tents, with beds, blankets , Toilets, dining room - all necessaries for life including electricity via solar system).
Day 2: Petra - Wadi Rum - Red Sea and Dead Sea:
After breakfast you will have a short visit of Wadi Rum in a 4x4 Jeep. Wadi Rum is a uniquely-shaped massive mountain that rose among the rosy red sand of the desert with towering cliffs of various brownish, reddish and golden colors. Next, you will make your way toward Gulf of Aqaba on the Red sea , Then, you will transfer to the Dead Sea which sits over 1300 feet (400 m) below sea level. The Dead Sea is one of the most incredible places in the world. It is known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by fire and brimstone. The Dead Sea speaks for itself: there are no living fish. It is by far one of Jordan's most impressive and spectacular places to visit. Its calm, shining water glowing from the scorching sun above, is known for the concentration of salt and minerals which makes it a therapeutic as well as a unique swimming experience not to be missed. Enjoy some free time to swim before returning to your hotel in Amman.
Please note: The temperature drops down quickly at Wadi Rum during the night , and it becomes very cold to freezing during winter time ( December & January), be aware that there is no heating on the tents but there is enough blankets, so you could choose the private option to make changes for the night stay to more luxurious camps ( Group Tours will always be using the same camp with no heating on the tens - this can not be changed).
NB: Entry Fees and tour guides are NOT included.

One of the New 7 Wonders of the World, Petra was carved from rose-red stone over 2,000 years ago to dominate the trade routes of ancient Arabia. First, walk the Siq, a narrow canyon extending three-quarters of a mile (1.2 kilometers), which opens up dramatically onto the vast Treasury building – a sight you may recall from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. After lunch, you'll move towards Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon. Not only is this where the movie Lawrence of Arabia was filmed, it often stands in for Mars in science fiction films. Enjoy dinner and spend the night at a Bedouin camp.

One of the most incredible places in the world, the name speaks for itself: there are no living fish.The calm, shining waters are known for their concentration of salt and minerals which makes them hyper-buoyant: it's famously impossible to sink in the Dead Sea.
