About the Package:Stretching east of Amman, the parched desert plain rolls on to Iraq and Saudi Arabia. This is a place where endless sand and barren basalt landscapes prove man’s ability to thrive under harsh conditions. The discovery of flint hand-axes in this desert indicates that Paleolithic settlers inhabited the region around half a million years ago.

On this trip, cyclists will visit two of the main castles by bike, crossing the eastern desert of Jordan and stopping on the way at the Azraq Eco-Lodge where you will rest and have lunch before visiting the wetland reserve. The Azraq Wetland Reserve is a nature reserve located near the town of Azraq in the eastern desert of Jordan. An oasis for migratory birds, Azraq was established in 1978 and covers 12 square kilometres.The Cycling route will be a dirt road cross the desert and passes through magnificent basalt landscapes, where there might be a chance to see some Bedouins, camels and much more.

What’s life like for women in Jordan? You know what a hijab is, a burqa is, a niqab. You see women wearing them, perhaps on the news or in your city. But how many of these women do you know? Join this 8-day adventure in Jordan as we break the barriers of traditional tourism and discover sisterhood in this tiny desert nation. Spend a night in Wadi Rum and learn the ancient art of henna with traditional Bedouin ladies, and discover how kohl has been used for years not just as a beauty product but to protect the eyes from the harsh desert sands. Spend an afternoon at a local ladies-only beach, discover the Dead Sea, and visit stunning Petra. Learn the art of Arabic cooking in a local home with our female host, enjoy afternoon teas and gossip time with local women, and even meet a female shepherd and help milk her goats. The reason we’ve made this tour just for women is that, culturally, it’s just not possible for men to participate in a lot of the activities on this tour, and we want to offer the best opportunity possible for developing a deeper understanding of Middle Eastern women – with full respect for their traditional cultural values.Note:Minimum 2 people are required to book this tour.

If you are going to visit Wadi Rum be sure that you don't miss the opportunity to visit the most popular natural rock bridge Um Frouth. This place will make you wonder how nature is cable of creating this piece of art.Stop At: Nabatean Temple, Aqaba Governorate, JordanOn a small hill in Rum village, are the limited ruins of a 2000-year-old temple, dedicated to the deity Lat. The ruins are important because they are evidence of a permanent Nabataean settlement, built on the earlier foundations of a temple built by the Arab tribe of Ad.Duration: 10 minutesStop At: Lawrence's Spring, Wadi Rum JordanThe spring named in honor of Lawrence’s evocative description in the Seven Pillars of Wisdom: 'In front of us a path, pale with use, zigzagged up the cliff-plinth…From between [the] trees, in hidden crannies of the rock, issued strange cries; the echoes turned into music, of the voices of the Arabs watering camels at the springs which there flowed out three hundred feet above ground'.Together with other springs in the area, this natural water spout that tumbles into a leafy ‘paradise just five feet square’ allowed Rum to become an essential waterhole for caravans traveling between Syria and Arabia. Look out for a small shrine dedicated to Lat; an aqueduct used to channel the water from the spring and inscriptions on the rock face. Notice to the aroma of mint in the air: it grows wild among the ferns and trees of this shady place.Duration: 20 minutesStop At: Jebel Khazali, Wadi Rum JordanAn easy siq to explore is the narrow fissure that cuts into Jebel Khazali. You can explore on foot for about 150m, far enough to appreciate the cool shade and to see inscriptions made by the ancients who used the siq for the same purpose. Look out for drawings of ostriches, pairs of feet and a woman giving birth.Duration: 30 minutesStop At: Al Ramal Red Sand Dune, Aqaba Qasabah District, JordanEnjoy your desert experience by walking up this soft silk dune and enjoying the magnificent endless mountain desert view.Duration: 25 minutesStop At: Little Bridge, Wadi Rum Village, JordanA beautiful natural rock bridge in the middle of this Mars-like desert, take your time to climb it and take unforgettable photos.Duration: 20 minutesStop At: Um Frouth Rock Bridge, Wadi Rum Village, JordanThe second biggest rock bridge in the Wadi Rum desert and the easiest to climb.
