Discovering the Wonders of Petra

Part of our short breaks range, this trip is perfect for a 5-day adventure with Jordan being just a 7-hour flight from the UK. You'll start in Amman and wander the ancient citadel with our local guide, add in a day trip to the Dead Sea for some serious (if not unusual!) pampering before heading to the awe-inspiring Rose-Red City of Petra and enjoying a candlelit nighttime spectacle. We've kept this one short on purpose, but there are plenty of amazing add-ons with the Wadi Rum and longer stints by Dead Sea offering unique, adventurous experiences on tap.
