In this tour we will visit the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan

For you ,as people that love the desert and want to see more of the amazing wonders of mother nature,the desert scenery of Jordan will be a pleasant surprise.

3 days tour

In our most popular tour ,we cross the border to Jordan at Arava border terminal,and afterwards we visit in the city of Aqaba, then, after breakfast and a short drive on the road, we will start our off road tour on the big nature reserve of wadi Rum.

The amazing sand dunes in variety of colors,the red sand stone and the dark and dramatic shapes of the dark granite mountains and the soft and colorful sand dunes around us.all together with an amazing sand dune drive. In wadi Rum we will visit some points of interest like the sand arches rock engravings,nabatean temple and more.

As the evening falls,we will spend the night  in a traditional Bedouin camp.

In the second day ,we will visit the "haraza" -the land of the sand arches and then we will get back on the road to Petra.

After lunch in wadi Musa ,we will walk or ride in the Siq , narrow and colorful canyon that was the main entrance to Petra,and suddenly, a breathtaking sight reveal to us,the famous treasury, "El Khazneh" carved beautifully on sandstone by the Nabatean 2000 years ago.The Nabatean people made their fortune in trading precious incense ,the Myrrh and the Frankincense from Yamen to the Mediterranean sea ports,exporting these goods to the Hellenistic empire and later to the Roman empire.By the time the Nabatean became richer as the markets of the Roman empire seek for more luxury . Petra,one of the seven wonders of the world , is the evidence for that wealth ,and all it's archaeological sites,The theatres,the tombs,the roman kardo and temple is left for us to admire those simple people that were described in the book of Jeremiah 35'   our forefather Jonadab son of Recab gave us this command: 'Neither you nor your descendants must ever drink wine.  Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents. Then you will live a long time in the land where you are nomads.' We have obeyed everything our forefather Jonadab son of Recab commanded us. Neither we nor our wives nor our sons and daughters have ever drunk wine  or built houses to live in or had vineyards, fields or crops.  We have lived in tents and have fully obeyed everything our forefather Jonadab commanded us."

We will spend the night in "Tibat Zaman" ,a luxury hotel that was built as an old traditional village,a hotel with all the facilities,but  in it's unique way.

At the last day we will drive west through an ancient pass that was in use by the Nabateans, "Naqeb al namle" ,that way takes us down to the Jordanian arava valley and then we will drive to wadi Hasa,one of the ever-flowing stream rivers of Jordan.the river carved it's way in the soft and colored sandstone and we will drive up the river with our jeeps then we will walk up the stream and have a nice swim.

We will return at evening to Israel through Arava border terminal.
