In the morning after breakfast at the hotel and a short drive, we arrive to Mt. Nebo to retrace the steps of Moses and admire the spectacular view of the Promised Land just as he did over 2,000 year before. It is very easy to feel that you have arrived some place special. On a clear day Jerusalem, Jericho and the Dead Sea can be seen. A memorial in Moses’ honor can be found at the entrance to the early Byzantine Christian church on the site where Moses is believed to have died. Continue to Madaba to view the oldest preserved mosaic map of the Holy Land dating back to the 6th century BC located within the Church of St. George. Madaba is not only famous for mosaics but also for colorful, hand-woven carpets.

Day 3: Kerak - Dana - Petra
After breakfast at the hotel, start the day exploring one of Jordan’s loveliest hideaways and its most impressive ecotourism project - the 15th century stone village of Dana. Perched high on a cliff, this charming community offers spectacular views of Wadi Araba. View the terraced gardens and after admire the fine craftsmanship of the local art scene. Dana is known for its handcrafted silver jewelry, dried fruit, olive oil soap, and leather tanning. Continue along the scenic King's Highway to Petra, a long, meandering curvy road running through some of Jordan’s gorgeous countryside and small towns. It has been the route of north–south trade and the scene of battles since prehistoric times – but today is a simple byway, often rutted and narrow, which follows the contours of the rolling hills above the Dead Sea rift. Overnight in Petra at 3* hotel.
Day 4: Petra - Little Petra
Breakfast at the camp, then we will start the Petra site visit. Petra is a UNESCO world heritage site and was recently voted one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. It is the legacy of the Nabataean's, an industrious Arab people who settled in southern Jordan more than 2000 years ago. We will arrange your entry tickets and hire for you a private English speaking site guide to explore the lower part of the city for 2.5 to 3 hours. Enter the site by navigating the narrow kilometer long Siq, or canyon. A horse and carriage can be arranged, if needed. The walls of the Siq are bursting with color from deep pink to purple to ocher. The path abruptly ends at an opening that reveals Petra’s most famous monument - the Treasury - carved into shear rock and towering over 40 meters high. Explore many of the over 800 individual monuments including buildings, tombs, baths, funerary halls, temples, arched gateways, and colonnaded streets, that were carved from the kaleidoscopic sandstone by the inhabitants centuries ago. Deep in the Lost City you can also see Jabal Haron, better known as Aaron's Mountain. Soaring high on the peak is the tomb of Aaron. Late afternoon, continue to Little Petra where you will be welcomed to a very special Bedouin experience: an authentic Bedouin dinner, music, campfire and camping deep inside a secret canyon. The feeling you get here is magical! Dinner in Little Petra with overnight mobile camping.

It is believed to be a resting place for the ancient caravans traveling along the spice route. Enter the site through a narrow gorge called Siq al-Baird to view the tombs, temples, and dining halls. Near Little Petra, continue exploring the ancient Neolithic settlement of Beidha believed to date back to 7000 BC.It was an obvious location to choose as it occupied naturally defended ground, plentifully supplied with water from a nearby spring. Today one can still see the remains of walls of the early houses and plastered floors. Towards evening, return to the mobile camp for dinner and overnight.
