Jordan: Lost City Of Arabia

Highlights:

Overview:

The fabled lost city of Petra needs no introduction… hidden away in the heart of the Jordanian desert for centuries, Petra obtained a mythical status with much speculation as to whether it existed at all. When the Swiss explorer Burckhardt befriended the local Bedouins in 1812, he 'discovered' the magical city, and it finally became known to the western world.  

However, there is much more to Jordan than just Petra and on this diverse trip we’ll enjoy a incredible variety of experiences. Whether it’s exploring the superbly preserved ancient streets of Roman Jerash or camping under a canopy of stars in the red desert sands of Lawrence’s Wadi Rum; or whether it’s floating in the magical waters of the Dead Sea and staying with local villagers in the northern hills, Jordan has so much to offer anyone who has ever dreamt of travelling to this Middle Eastern gem.
