Discover the hidden delights of Jordan on this tailor-made itinerary, where you'll combine visits to two of the country's most iconic destinations - Petra and Wadi Rum - with time relaxing on Aqaba's beaches, making this an ideal winter escape.  Start in Aqaba by enjoying languid beach days, infinity-pool indulgences and Red Sea diving (at extra cost) with a base in a luxury 4- or 5-star hotel. Then, transfer to Petra, visiting the spectacular Wadi Rum by 4-wheel drive on the way, where moon-like ochre mounds and delicate desert arches play host to Bedouin camps, prehistoric carvings and sheer canyons.  Continue to the world-wonder that is Petra, exploring its ancient tombs and sandstone ripples with your own private guide.

Day 6
Aqaba to Petra

After breakfast, check out and begin the drive to Petra with a stop at Wadi Rum, known as the Valley of the Moon. One of Jordan’s most impressive deserts, this sprawling ochre landscape is home to colossal rocks and several camps where Bedouin families still reside. After a few hours exploration in a 4x4, transfer to your Petra hotel, the Movenpick Petra Resort. Perched right at the entrance of historic Petra, this hotel is all natural stone and wood furnishings flourished with Middle Eastern fabrics and murals.

Day 7
Petra

After breakfast, begin your tour of the archaeological site of Petra with a private guide. Start with an optional horse ride to the old city's entrance, before walking through the Siq to the city itself. Built in 800BC by the Nabateans, the ancient city of Petra is world-famous for its steep red rocks, rippling pink sandstone caves and intricate facades carved out of the solid rock. After a full day's exploration of the site, return to your hotel to relax before meeting your guide for the stunning Petra by Night tour; arriving at the Treasury bathed in candlelight to listen to music and stories about the region is a magical experience and a fitting end to your time in Jordan.
