This program offers an expertly curated survey of the very best of Jordan, exploring both the ancient and modern dimensions of this compact yet remarkably multi-faceted, visually stunning and utterly unique country.
From Amman, Jordan’s bustling capital city, to the serenity of world-class ecolodges deep in the desert and onward to the sprawling, epic ruins of Petra, we will traverse both space and time, moving through varied, gorgeous landscapes and over 25 centuries of incredibly dynamic history.
We will tour grand Roman ruins, stand atop Mount Nebo, and visit long-abandoned Crusader castles and historic Greek Orthodox churches. In Wadi Rum, we’ll spend two nights in the futuristic “Martian Dome” luxury hotel pods, with astounding views of the desert night sky.
Chance to eat Superb European and Middle Eastern cuisine (including one private traditional Arab cooking class) and fantastic photographic opportunities round out this unforgettable experience.
