    4. Day 4 Check out the Ancient City, and climb a mountain  

      Chances are you’re used to an early alarm, which is just as well – you’ll be up before dawn this morning. You’ll start by walking through the 1.2km Siq, a stunning canyon that reveals an Ancient City as the sun rises. You’ll see the Treasury, an imposing ancient tomb, then it’s upwards to the High Place of Sacrifice for fantastic views over the rose-red city.  Heading down the mountain on another route we stop for tea at the Garden Tomb then hike through Wadi Farasa to our picnic lunch stop.  Hidden high in the hills is another legendary monument, the Monastery.  To get there we head up 850 stone steps which is an effort but trust us – it’s worth it. After our climbing adventures it is time to wind our way back along the city streets passing the Royal Tombs and the 2000-year-old Nabataean Theatre, carved out of the mountain-side and finally we return to the Siq.  Your time in Petra is sure to be a day you will never forget. *Hotel:* Movenpick Nabatean castle

    5. Day 5 Sunset jeep safari in Wadi Rum; sleep under the stars  

      Today its on to Wadi Rum, characterised by deep red sands and mars-like landscape this desert will captivate you.  After checking into your geodesic dome pod in Wadi Rum (yes, it’s as exciting as it sounds), take a jeep safari into the vastness. You’ll arrive at the right spot just in time for sunset, then return to camp for dinner under a canopy of stars. Heavenly.Wadi Rum UFO camp

    6. Day 6 Early morning camel ride; swim in the Red Sea

      Take an early morning camel ride across the desert and commit the last of the captivating views to memory (and your camera phone) before the hour-long drive to the Red Sea coast. The rest of the day is spent in Aqaba, a small town on the red sea coast where you can stretch out on the beach and try snorkelling over a coral reef.Tonight, the nightlife of Aqaba beckons…*HOTEL:* Daytree by Hilton

    7. Day 7 Hike in Dana Reserve; lunch with villagers

      After breakfast, its on to the 15th-century village of Dana for a hike in the Biosphere Reserve. Join local villagers for lunch before continuing to the Dead Sea the lowest place on earth (431m below sea level, to be exact). Take time to enjoy the facilities of our resort but don’t miss the experience of floating in the Dead Sea. The high salt content of the water makes swimming impossible. But it’s perfect for bobbing about it and letting your skin take advantage of the mineral-rich mud. *HOTEL:* Hilton Dead Sea Resort

    8. Day 8 Mujib Biosphere Siq trail

      This morning you’ll hike the Wadi Mujib Siq Trail, running parallel to the Dead Sea. You’ll wade and scramble through a gorge to reach a dramatic waterfall. If you’re lucky, you might spot some Nubian Ibex. The final afternoon is yours to unwind, maybe treating yourself to a spa treatment or another soak in the Dead Sea before your thoughts turn to the journey home.*HOTEL:* Hilton Dead Sea resort

    9. Day 9 Transfer to the airport

      After breakfast, a transfer will return you (reluctantly, most likely) to the airport.
