You'll depart from the Abraham Hostel Jerusalem in the early morning, and head out past the Dead Sea through the Judean Desert towards the Northern Sheikh Hussein Border with Jordan. Following the border procedure, you'll travel through Northern Jordan to Jerash, one of the most preserved ancient Roman cities. As an extremely prosperous city in ancient times, Jerash contains a number of Greek and Roman temples, the Hippodrome, a forum and a cardo.
Following a delicious lunch and a visit to the Amman Citadel for a stunning view of the Jordanian capital and the ancient ruins of Amman, you'll have some tasty local desserts before the long drive south to the campsite near Petra.
Your campsite (or hotel, if upgrade is chosen) is an authentic, comfortable yurt style accommodation holding up to 2 people of the same gender in separate full-sized beds, and includes full facilities. You'll enjoy a delicious Bedouin-style dinner each night, and breakfast in the morning, as well as, a campfire to meet and relax under the star-filled sky, unspoiled by city lights.
In the morning, you'll travel the short distance to Petra where the hidden city, lost to western civilization's influence and maps for thousands of years, greets you with its sandstone cliffs and stunning cliff face buildings. After exploring the extensive site with the guide, you'll stop for a well-earned lunch. You can choose to spend the afternoon exploring the rest of this amazing site, or hike up to the famous monastery at the top of the mountain overlooking all of southern Jordan as well as the Tomb of Aaron in the distance.
The third day is just as adventure packed as you visit Wadi Rum, made famous by Lawrence of Arabia, and the location of the best desert vistas one can find. With sand dunes, sandstone rock formations of all shapes and colors, and mighty cliff faces in the horizon, Wadi Rum will leave a lasting impression as you traverse its landscape in a 4x4 Jeep tour including a stop for lunch at a Bedouin campsite.
In the mid-afternoon, you'll head back for the Israeli border, and onto Jerusalem.
