WHAT TO EXPECT

Our small group trip to Jordan caters to travelers in their 20s and 30s looking for ancient stone marvels in Petra, spectacular desert landscapes in Wadi Rum, and the good life along the Dead Sea.
 
On this excursion to the Middle East, you can expect to encounter a world unlike any other. You'll get a taste of the culture in bustling Amman before you head out into the golden rock wilderness. For seven days, you'll move through Jordan's deserts and dunes, camp under starry skies, explore ancient ruins, bask in amazing desert sunsets, float in the Dead Sea, and hike through Jordan's extraordinary canyons.
 
If you’re looking for a fast-paced adventure with a lot of movement and new experiences, this is the trip for you.

Day by day
Day 1 - Amman, Jordan
ARRIVE

Welcome to Jordan!

 

Arrive into Amman, Jordan's bustling capital.

 

This evening, you’ll meet your new travel crew and head to a local restaurant to enjoy a traditional mezze-style welcome dinner flowing with mint tea, fresh juices, and a variety of small dishes.

Jordan's food and tea is great.

IMMERSE

Day 2 - Amman, Dead Sea
Low and
Behold

Head out with the group and kick off the day with a visit to the Amman Citadel and Roman Theater. Make sure you work up an appetite as you explore the city because up next, we’re heading into the kitchen ourselves to give authentic Arabic cooking a go. Follow along with the local guide and take a note or two so you can impress with your newfound culinary clout when you get home.

After starring on Top Chef Jordan, we’re rolling out of the city and cruising down to the Dead Sea. And by down, we do mean down. We’re heading to the lowest point on dry land in the entire world. Float out from the golden banks into the spectacularly salty dreamscape and take it all in. That night, we’ll have dinner as a group back at the hotel.

Hiking in Wadi Mujib's desert.

TRAVERSE

Day 3 - Dead Sea, Wadi Mujib, Petra
Ancient Cliffs and Canyons

Fuel up at the hotel; you’ve got quite an active day ahead. We’re departing early to trek into the snaking canyons of Wadi Mujib, where shallow river beds have been chiseled over millions of years by rushing waters. Dodge that Middle Eastern sun beneath the shade of towering cliffs as we wind our way past mountains and valleys to stunning, hidden waterfalls.  

We’ll grab lunch as a group near the hotel, and then we’re rolling on to the unreal structures of ancient Petra. The night is yours to explore, relax, and enjoy dinner with friends.

*Note: The hike through Wadi Mujib is weather dependent, and the site is closed from November 1st - March 31st. Those not able to hike Wadi Mujib will adventure through another popular canyon nearby.

Trekking through Jordan's landscapes.

ADVENTURE


Day 4 - Petra
Iconic Petra

No Jordan trip would be complete without Petra's stone marvels, so today you’ll get to channel your inner Indiana Jones!

 

This amazing place is massive, so be prepared to get your step count up. In the morning, you’ll learn the fascinating history of Petra and enjoy a catered lunch with the locals. 

 

The afternoon is free to do some exploring on your own. Pack some water and get lost in this amazing natural playground.

 

In the evening, you’ll get to experience the incredible Petra by Night. Though bars are few and far between in Jordan, we know a secret spot to grab a cold beer in the desert.

EXPERIENCE

Day 5 - Wadi Rum
DESERT ADVENTURE

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before heading out to the sun-kissed valley of Wadi Rum for striking views of Jordan's rolling desert landscape.

We'll have lunch among the giant rocky outcroppings that rise from the shades of sepia before jumping into the back of a Jeep to explore in rugged style. (Please note: desert Jeeps do not have seat belts, so hang tight!)

 

After a day spent cruising Jordan's immense sandy dunes, we'll head to some of the most unique accommodations we’ve seen yet for unforgettable sunset views across the desert.

Camping in Jordan's desert.

ESCAPE

Day 6 - Amman
FREE DAY

Wake up early for an unforgettable camel ride to watch the sunrise.

 

After, we’ll head back to Amman on a six-hour drive. Once we arrive in the early afternoon, the day is yours to enjoy.

 

We’ll regroup in the late evening for one final dinner together.

Jordan's food is tasty.

Trip notes

  • While we can’t guarantee private rooms, you should book your trip earlier if you prefer one, as they usually fill up.

  • Book your flights into and out of Amman.

  • This trip will require lots of walking and movement, compared to other FTLO trips. We recommend this trip for adventurers and those who are comfortable walking for several hours at a time. As one of our more active trips be prepared to be on the go.

  • During the summer, Jordan can get very hot (100 °F), and during the winter, very cold for U.S. west coast standards (40°F.).

  • Expect lots of outdoor adventure, wandering and walking. ​

  • All activities are weather dependent; in the unlikely event that we are unable to run an activity, we will have a suitable alternative in place.

  • More information regarding visa requirements and Covid restrictions can be found here.

​Jordan hosts some of the world's superlatives when it comes to natural landscapes and ancient ruins. The dead sea, rivers and canyons, deserts and dunes, and ancient sandstone cliffs that run through the country's entire length are just a few of the outstanding natural spaces that define this natural wonder. And you'll get to experience all of these unique environments on this 7-day excursion. 

Because of its unique culture and striking outdoors, Jordan has long been a sought-out destination for culture-seekers, foodies and adventurous travelers alike.
