1Amman airport - Amman, overnigh

Upon your arrival at Queen Alia International Airport, we will provide assistance with the processing of your Jordan visa. Following that, our designated driver will be there to transfer you to your accommodation in Amman, where you will have dinner and stay overnight in a 3-star hotel.

2Amman - Dana - Feynan

Enjoy breakfast at the hotel, check out, and embark on a scenic drive with our designated driver along the desert highway to Dana Village. Our day begins with a trek from Dana Nature Reserve, renowned as one of Jordan's most beautiful conservation and wilderness areas, to Feynan Canyon. The captivating downhill trek meanders through the sandstone gorge of Wadi Dana, offering breathtaking views. As you journey, you may come across local Bedouin herders tending to their sheep and goats. The day concludes with dinner and an overnight stay at a mobile camp in Feynan.

3Feynan - Barwas

Following breakfast in the morning, commence your trek through the stony desert, enjoying breathtaking views of the towering mountain ranges to the east and the expansive Wadi Araba desert to the west. As the day progresses, continue towards the foothills of the mountains. The evening will be spent at a mobile camp in the Barwas Area, where you'll have dinner and stay overnight.

4Barwas - Ras El Feid

After breakfast, we depart, leaving the stony "Hamada" desert in our wake. Our trek continues as we navigate around the base of the mountain, eventually reaching the trailhead of an ancient Bedouin migration path. This path ascends steeply, winding its way across rocks and small boulders through a twisting track that ascends into the mountain. This challenging section takes approximately 3 hours, offering stunning westward views of the captivating Wadi Araba desert.

Upon reaching the top of a high saddle, one of the trek's most scenic spots, we begin our descent via a small goat track to the river valley of Wadi Feid. Here, you'll have a well-deserved opportunity to refresh and cool down in the cool water—a perfect spot for lunch. The trek then continues upstream, navigating through a beautiful dense garden of oleander, willow, tamarisk, and reed. Moving beyond this, we walk along a dry riverbed surrounded by colorful sandstone outcrops until we reach our camping spot.

Our dedicated crew awaits with Bedouin tea, and after a brief wash and rest, a Bedouin-style evening meal is served. Dinner and overnight accommodation will be in the mobile camp.

5Ras El Feid - Shkaret Msei'd - Little Petra, camping

Embrace an early start with a hearty breakfast, and our trek progresses from Ras El Feid towards Shkaret Msaied. Following this leg of the journey, we conveniently transfer you by car to Little Petra. As the day winds down, indulge in a delightful dinner and spend the night in the enchanting surroundings of Little Petra, nestled within the Seven Wonder Bedouin Camp.

6Little Petra - back-way to the Monastery, Petra - Amman

Begin the day with an early rise and a satisfying breakfast as we embark on a trekking adventure to unveil the secrets of Petra city through a lesser-known route, beginning at Little Petra. Traverse the hills and mountains, guided by our experienced Bedouin guide, until we reach the Monastery approximately 2 hours into the trek. Take a moment to rest and absorb the surroundings.

Following this, descend the steps to further explore the remaining wonders of the site until the afternoon. Return to the main gate, where our driver will be waiting to transfer you to Amman airport for your departure.
