A small country that’s big on hospitality, ancient history, and culture – with numerous UNESCO World Heritage sites – Jordan offers endless opportunities for adventure.”


It may be hard to believe, but the stars shine even brighter in Wadi Rum. It’s the bold gateway into the Arabian Desert, with flowing dunes, sandstone arches, and table mountains that seem to poke straight up from the flame-colored sand.”


about this journey

Join Ethos Journeys on an exciting and relaxing getaway to Jordan – known as a land of deep history and is perceived by the world as a tourism treasure box filled with marks of the most significant and oldest human civilizations in the world. A country that cherishes the past and maintains the present as it progresses into the future while preserving political stability and security in a conflict region.

This 8-night journey will venture from the ancient streets of Amman to the wonders of Petra, then on to the Wadi Rum desert, and end at the Dead Sea. Enjoy delicious meals, comfortably appointed accommodations, and daily tours into the magical wonders of Jordan.

9 day itinerary

Welcome to Jordan! Upon arrival, you will be met by a local facilitator who will greet you at the airport and guide you through the customs and visa processes. (Your tourist visa fee is included in the tour price! Please Note: Any arrivals before 6:00 am will incur an additional surcharge for this service.) After clearing customs and collecting your luggage, you will be introduced to your driver for the 30min transport to our Amman hotel, where we’ll spend our first two nights.
Spend the afternoon resting and readying yourself for this exciting adventure, and join the group for dinner with a Jordanian family in the evening. A local meal will be prepared for us just the way it’s done in millions of homes around Jordan. Enjoy your time and don’t say no to the tea afterwards!

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Intercontinental Amman An iconic landmark in bustling Amman, InterContinental Jordan Hotel offers cosmopolitan amenities with a Middle Eastern touch, from light-filled rooms, vibrant furnishings and sweeping architecture to international cuisines, Spa facilities, a selection of beautiful spaces suitable for different occasions, along with magnificent views. Located atop one of the seven hills of Amman, the hotel attracts international clientele from all over the world who enjoy its close proximity to the city center.


Note: Many flights from within Europe arrive in the early hours of the morning. We can arrange a room for the night prior (October 09) at an extra cost for anyone who wishes to have their room available before noon on October 10, 2023. Please note that early arrivals will also have an added fee for airport visa assistance and transportation to your Amman hotel.
After breakfast, we will head North to visit Jerash, the Graeco-Roman city known as the ‘Pompeii of the East.’ Built over 2,000 years ago, Jerash is widely regarded as the best-preserved city of the Decapolis, a confederation of 10 Roman cities dating from the 1st century! We explore the site taking in the colonnaded street, amphitheater, nymphaeum, and forum.

Next, we will continue to Umm Qais (Gadara), a picturesque black-basalt Roman city of the Decapolis with panoramic views over the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights, before sharing lunch at the Anjara Women’s Cooperative Society, an organization empowering rural women in Jordan.

After returning to Amman, we will enjoy a delightful dinner at Hashem, a veritable Ammani institution and one of the oldest restaurants in the capital, much revered for its no-nonsense philosophy and simple, hearty food. Hashem Restaurant has no menu, but they serve delicious dishes that even the Royal Family is known to enjoy, proclaiming it the “best falafel in the country.”

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Intercontinental Amman

MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner

Leaving Amman after breakfast, we will stop first at Mount Nebo, the site from which Moses saw the Promised Land. Having led the Israelites for 40 years through the wilderness, Moses finally saw them from this breathtaking vantage point. This amazing panorama includes the Jordan River Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho, and the spires and domes of the Mt. of Olives and Bethlehem on the Judean hills just across the wide valley.

During our drive, our next port of call is Umm ar-Rasas, one of Jordan’s World Heritage sites and an essential stop on the once-busy caravan routes. The impressive mosaic floor of the St. Stephen Church features medallions commemorating all the early Christian pilgrimage sites of the region, and the extensive ruins also include one of the area’s earliest Stylite towers, where a Byzantine hermit lived atop the tower and preached to the pilgrimage visitors.

Upon arrival in Petra, we will settle into our hotel and get to bed early for a big day of walking tomorrow!


TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Old Village Resort Petra – Situated on the outskirts of Wadi Musa, overlooking the Shahara Mountains, home to the fabled UNESCO World Heritage Site of the rose-red city of Petra, Old Villa Resort offers five star comforts travellers. All rooms have Wi-Fi access, tea and coffee making facilities, television, air conditioning, safe deposit box and a mini bar. The bathrooms are well equipped with bath/shower, hair dryer and complimentary toiletries.

MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch

After breakfast, visit one of the world’s most famous ancient cities, Petra. Little is known about the Nabatean people who made their capital at Petra, though the influence of Hellenistic culture and, later, the Roman Empire is inescapable. Most of the tombs, the theater, and the temples you see today were constructed in the first and second centuries C.E. when the Roman culture was at its peak. Eventually, the city and the region would be absorbed into the empire.

However, Petra’s magic is more than just the beauty of its individual buildings. It’s the entire setting that is unforgettable, with the carved facades of classical columns flush with the walls of sandstone cliffs, creating “a rose-red city, half as old as time,” to borrow the words from “Petra,” a poem by the 19th-century English writer John Burgon.

After a full morning exploring the wonders of Pedra, we will return to the hotel for lunch and a few hours of relaxation. In the late afternoon we will venture out to Little Petra, where we will share in a Bedouin Dinner Party.

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Old Village Resort Petra

MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Dinner

If Petra is Jordan’s most famous sight—thanks mainly to the manmade beauty of its temples and tombs carved from stone—Wadi Rum is the country’s most famous natural wonder. The spectacular desert landscape of rocky outcroppings looks almost otherworldly. Once you see Wadi Rum, it will become clear why it has so often stood in for Mars on the big screen.
Upon arrival, enjoy a Jeep Tour through the amazing Sahara Desert, visiting the most notable sites and a Galayet Bandora lunch. By late afternoon we will make our way back to camp for a delicious dinner at Memories Aicha.

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Memories Aicha Bedouin CampWe’ve seen a fair share of luxury campsites in Wadi Rum, but Memories Aicha is truly unique. Bordered by rugged mountains and the stunning Arabian desert, this camp lets you wake up in the wild outdoors without compromising an ounce of luxury. Expect the same amenities and facilities as you would have in a top-class hotel. Junior Tents (375 sq.ft.) are equipped with a King Bed or two Twin Beds and can comfortably accommodate two guests. All tents have en-suite bathrooms and showers, air conditioning, slippers, bathrobe, and bottled mineral water.

MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Spend your morning taking in the splendor of the desert, or participate in some optional tours (additional costs depend on the choice of tours) like dune-surfing, riding camels, or shepherding in the desert.

Later in the day, we will visit a Bedouin family to enjoy Zarb/Mandi. A mix of meat, like lamb and chicken, rice, onions, and carrots, is placed in a square hole in the ground, which is filled with flaming hot coals. The hole is then covered with a few layers of blankets to hold in the heat, and finally, sand is covered over the oven. After a few hours, the meat and rice are all smoked, steamed, and grilled, all at the same time. Like most Jordanian dishes, it is served family style. (Vegetarian options are also available.)

In the evening return to camp for another delightful dinner at Memories Aicha.

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Memories Aicha

MEALS INCLUDED: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today after breakfast, we will start making our way to the Dead Sea.

The lowest point on the earth’s surface at more than 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea is a natural phenomenon and high on most travelers’ bucket lists. Lucky for us, we have two days here to while away the time bobbing in mineral-rich buoyant waters and lathering up with a detoxifying mud bath, or enjoy spa treatments and optional tours.

TONIGHT’S HOTEL: Mövenpick Dead Sea Resort – This peaceful hotel is located in a traditional village, nestled amongst lush gardens. The resort is set on the northern shores of the Dead Sea, at the lowest point on earth. With your well-being and balance in mind, this 5-star resort is an oasis of tranquillity. Mövenpick Resort & Spa Dead Sea offers nine trendy restaurants and bars on the Dead Sea. Explore a delectable variety of cuisines catering to all tastes.

Relax in the award-winning Arabian Dead Sea Zara Spa with breath-taking views of the healing waters and offering world-class facilities on 6,000 square meters – you can be sure to experience ultimate spa luxury.

Safi Crafts Visit

In association with the Ghor Al Safi Women’s Association for Social Development, the Safi Crafts center boasts a mixture of art, heritage, and community designed to advertise the colorfully made handicrafts of 15 local women. With operating hours from 8am to 2pm visitors can purchase soulfully made handicrafts while contributing to the economic development of local Jordanian communities; what’s better than that? Visit to learn more:

The Lowest Point on Earth Museum & Lot’s Cave

This small museum near the Dead Sea is a wonder in and of itself with its unique location and exciting collection of artifacts. Located at the lowest point on Earth, the museum hosts an array of materials from Lot’s cave (located just up the hill from the museum) and amazingly preserved Greco-Roman clothing, in addition to hundreds of Greek inscriptions. While visiting the museum, the walk up to Lot’s cave is
highly recommended. This cave is believed to be where the Prophet Lot escaped following the story of Sodom and Gomorrah.

Adventure Buggy Rides in the Dead Sea

Are you a fan of adventure, excitement, and 4x4s? If so, this experience is just right for you! During this experience, you can enjoy unforgettable buggy rides at the lowest place on Earth – the Dead Sea!

Time Zone: GMT +2 | US EST +7
Electricity: 220 Volts, 50 AC
Currency: Jordanian Dinar (JOD)

Climate: The climate depends on which part of the country you are in, as altitude ranges from 400m (1312ft) below average sea level at the Dead Sea, to 1850m above sea level at the Al-Shirah mountains. June to September are the hottest months of the year where temperature rises to about 32C (89.6F). The period between December and March is the coolest. Snowfall often occurs and temperatures stay around 15C (59F) during the day.

Spending Money

Every traveler is different and therefore spending money requirements will vary. Some travelers may drink more than others while other travelers like to purchase more souvenirs than most. Please consider your spending habits when it comes to allowing for drinks, shopping, and tipping. Please also remember the following specific recommendations when planning your trip.

Money Exchange

The currency in Jordan is the Jordanian Dinar (JOD).

ATMs are found within Jordan’s main cities and generally accept cards on the Visa and Mastercard networks. It is a great idea to travel with both a Visa and Mastercard if possible as while there is no hard and fast rule, some banks seem to only work with one brand of card.

Cash is recommended for times when ATMs are not accessible. Euros, British Pounds, and US Dollars are easy to exchange to local currency. Please note that you should bring some cash with you for emergency situations but carrying only cash is a high safety risk. ATM card/s and some cash is the ideal mix.

If you are bringing US Dollars, please make sure that the notes are new and in good condition. Notes older than 1996, or with any tears or blemishes may not be accepted. Be fussy with your bank when buying cash!

As currency exchange rates can fluctuate often, we ask that you refer to the following website for daily exchange rates:


DRINKING WATER: It is advisable to drink bottled water in Jordan.

There are no specific health requirements for this trip. However, we recommend protection against typhoid, tetanus, infectious hepatitis, and polio. You should consult your doctor for up-to-date medical travel information before departure. We recommend that you carry a First Aid kit, hand sanitizers / antibacterial wipes as well as any personal medical requirements.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is compulsory to participate in any of our journeys. When traveling on a group trip, you will not be permitted to join the group until evidence of travel insurance has been sighted by your leader, who will take note of your insurance details. When selecting a travel insurance policy, we require that, at a minimum, you are covered for medical expenses, including emergency evacuation and repatriation. A minimum coverage of USD200,000 is required.

We strongly recommend that the policy also covers personal liability, cancellation, curtailment, loss of luggage, and personal effects.

If you have credit card insurance, we require proof of trip purchase (a receipt of credit card statement) with a credit card in your name. Contact your bank for details of their participating insurer, the level of coverage, and emergency contact telephone number.

Local Dress

While visiting mosques and other religious monuments, you should dress modestly, cover your shoulders, and you shouldn’t wear short shorts or skirts. Outside of capital cities and the more tourist centers, local dress is often more conservative. As a matter of respect, we ask that both men and women are aware of this and recommend loose-fitting clothes with your shoulders covered.

To respect the Islamic culture in Jordan and to honor your gracious hosts, women should cover from shoulders to knees. Mid-calf pants and skirts with short-sleeved tops are excellent options for this.

When visiting mosques, long sleeves and a scarf to cover your head is mandatory. They can be removed once you leave the mosque grounds.

Minimum Age

You must be 18 to travel unaccompanied with Ethos Journeys. For minors traveling with a guardian over 21 years old, the minimum age is 12.

Itinerary Disclaimer

While it is our intention to adhere to the route described below, there is a certain amount of flexibility built into the itinerary and on occasion it may be necessary, or desirable to make alterations. The itinerary is brief, as we never know exactly where our journey will take us. Due to our style of travel and the regions we visit, travel can be unpredictable. The Trip Details document is a general guide to the tour and region and any mention of specific destinations or wildlife is by no means a guarantee that they will be visited or encountered. Aboard expedition trips visits to research stations depend on final permission.

Additionally, any travel times listed are approximations only and subject to vary due to local circumstances.


Our Last Best Chance: A Story of War and Peace by King Abdullah II of Jordan

This book is primarily a memoir of King Abdullah’s life. He paints a picture of the Middle East’s issues from an insider’s perspective and gives enough geopolitical details for those with a Western view of the world to understand. While the book does focus a fair amount on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, it also covers the King’s sudden rise to the throne and Jordan’s role as the stable power in the region. 

A Leap of Faith by Queen Noor

A Leap of Faith is Queen Noor’s memoir. In this compelling book, Arab-American Lisa Halaby opens up to tell her love story with King Hussein of Jordan. The tale unveils their love affair and the turbulent transformation the Middle East was experiencing with the formation of the state of Israel in 1948. Her memoir does an excellent job of weaving together history, political commentary, and the richness of family life.

Married to a Bedouin by Marguerite van Geldermalsen

Married to a Bedouin is another memoir about a woman in love who leaves behind her life to follow her husband in Jordanian land. Marguerite van Geldermalsen is a Dutch woman raised in New Zealand. She was traveling through Petra in 1978 when she met Bedouin Mohammad Abdallah Othman. After falling deeply in love with the charming Bedouin, she leaves New Zealand to move into her husband’s caves.

The Land Beyond: A Thousand Miles on Foot through the Heart of the Middle East by Leon McCarron

Leon McCarron did what only a  few dared to do. He walked alone through the Middle East on a 1000-mile walk from Jerusalem to Mount Sinai. The memoir shares his journey along the trails and pilgrimage routes that crisscross the West Bank, Palestine, and Jordan. The walkthrough of these congested areas leads him to meet different people and understand the historical events, cultures, and religions that shaped the Holy Land. 

Desert Queen: The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell

While T.E. Lawrence takes the spotlight on Jordanian adventures, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to get to know Gertrude Bell through this book. A bold woman, Bell abandoned her Victorian Life to let her curiosity and adventurous spirit run free in the Middle East. She played a key role in creating the Middle East as we know it today, and her connections and work provided much of the brain for T. E. Lawrence’s military brawn. 


Pillars of Salt by Fadia Faqir

Pillars of Salt is one of the best books about Jordan and the Muslim culture from a feminine perspective. Fadia Faqir tells the story of a young Bedouin and an older Amman woman sharing a room in a mental hospital. The two women become closer and share the events that led them to end up in a psychiatric ward. Through each story the characters share, the book gives deep insight into the Muslim culture, the role of women, and the challenges they face in a patriarchic society.

    • Hedjaz, 1916, under British rule. In a Bedouin camp, in the heart of the desert, the young 10-year-old Theeb lives with his older brother Hussein, who passes on the ancestral traditions to him.

    • What does it have to do with your stay in Jordan?  Petra, of course!

You must be 18 years old (except for minors accompanied by a parent or designated responsible adult) and in good health to join one of our tours.

As soon as you have made a deposit, we encourage you to take a comprehensive travel insurance policy to cover your trip.

In the event of a claim for cancellation, loss, or damages, in the first instance, the Client and/or Agent should make such a claim through the insurance provider.

Also note that frequently travelers believe that their credit card company supplies travel insurance, but time and again, learn that only flight costs are covered, or there is a coverage limit. As such, we strongly encourage purchasing comprehensive travel insurance through providers like SafetyWing, World Nomads, or Travelex Insurance Services, where you can obtain excellent coverage.


If you cancel some or all portions of your booking the cancellation terms set out below will apply. A cancellation will only be effective when we receive written confirmation that you have sent to your relevant sales representative of the cancellation. If you cancel a trip:

  • 89- 75 days prior to departure, 100% of refundable portion;
  • 61 – 75 days prior to departure, 75% of refundable portion;
  • 74 – 45 days prior to departure, 50% of refundable portion;
  • 44 – 31 day prior to departure, 25% of refundable portion;
  • 30 days or fewer prior to departure, no refund is possible.

Please note that different cancellation conditions may apply to some styles of trips and additional services. You are strongly advised to take out cancellation travel insurance at the time of booking. If you leave a trip for any reason after it has commenced, we are not obliged to make any refunds for unused services. If you fail to join a trip, join it after departure, or leave it prior to its completion, no refund will be made. The above cancellation terms are in addition to fees which may be levied by accommodation providers, travel agents or third-party tour and transport operator fees.


Refunds are not made for any missed services except for verifiable extenuating circumstances. Please see our Limits on Liability below. For verifiable claims to be considered, they must be received in writing within 30 days of the program’s termination and be accompanied by supporting documentation and/or a statement from the Operating Company verifying the claim.

Ethos Journeys will make every effort to rectify situations of services rendered below standard. In this case, any refund would be made based on the actual price of the service(s) in question and not on a per diem basis.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, Ethos Journeys may need to make adjustments to the travel itinerary, which could alter the final price or design of your program. While we make all of your arrangements in good faith, unforeseen circumstances may make it necessary to change hotels, transportation, or tour arrangements before or during your trip.

We are committed to safe and responsible travel, always ensuring our trips remain safe for everyone — our travelers, our leaders and crew, and the people we visit.

We believe vaccinations are crucial in saving lives and helping keep people safe. We support global vaccine equity and strongly encourage all travelers and leaders to get fully vaccinated against COVID-19. We also follow recommendations from the World Health Organization and the World Travel Tourism Council’s (WTTC) Safe Travel protocols.

1. Are there vaccination or testing requirements for Ethos Journeys trips?

Ethos Journeys does not require travelers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for most trips. However, we strongly recommend that all travelers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others. Your destination country or airline may still require specific proof of testing or vaccination. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

2. What happens if someone on a trip shows symptoms of COVID-19?

If a traveler feels unwell during a trip, our Ethos Journeys leader will assist them in accessing medical care. This may include facilitating COVID-19 testing if requested by the customer. We also encourage customers to bring tests from home as a precaution. Any difficulties required or requested are at the traveler’s expense.

If travelers test positive for COVID-19, they must leave the trip and access medical care (if required). Depending on the destination, they may be required to isolate for a period of time.

Our goal is to keep the trip going wherever possible unless we are required to end the journey in line with local regulations.

3. Will I have to wear a mask when traveling?

Ethos Journeys supports the use of masks to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. We follow local governments’ and individual businesses’ guidance and requirements around mask-wearing. Where masks aren’t required, we respect all travelers’ choices around personal mask usage.

4. Can I get a refund if I am unwell before my trip and unable to travel?

If you are unwell before traveling, please contact us to make alternative arrangements. We strongly encourage arranging travel insurance for your journey as soon as you deposit and/or buy flights. You can receive a full refund from your travel insurance provider in most circumstances, but our cancellation policies cannot be altered in the event of illness.

It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure that they have valid passports and visas, where necessary. Ethos Journeys cannot be held responsible for information on visa regulations or where passports or visas are not obtained or accepted by local authorities.

These include, but are not limited to, hiking, walking safaris, climbing injuries, altitude sickness, and in all trips, dangers of animals, inaccessibility to medical attention, and difficulty in evacuation from remote locations in the case of a medical emergency. The passenger assumes all such risks concerning these possibilities and is now given notice that hospital and/or health facilities/personnel for treatment of serious medical problems are often unavailable and further that evacuation, if available, can be prolonged, complicated, and expensive. We assume no liability regarding the provision of medical care or evacuation services and, at this moment, provide notice that any of our staff or subcontractors who may provide emergency medical care in the field may not have had formal medical or first-aid training and would be acting only as a “good Samaritan.”
