Tours to Jordan:
Jordan - Petra, Wadi Rum, Jarash, Mt. Nebo 3 Day Tour (Jordan tours) 
First Day - This 3 day Jordan tour leaves Eilat early morning for the Rabin crossing where we enter Jordan. We board  4X4 jeeps, driven by professional Bedouin drivers and journey to the sandstone area of Wadi Rum. Here we go off-road into its unique landscape and get right off the beaten track to explore rarely traveled ancient merchant routes. Lunch is enjoyed en route in the great outdoors. We continue off-road through the Rum and by evening reach a Bedouin hospitality camp, here we enjoy  our evening meal and settle for the night in a guest tent*. In Rum we have the opportunity to observe the awe-inspiring Arabian night-skies and the mysterious and enchanting views of Wadi Rum.
Second Day-  Following breakfast with the Bedouins we board our 4X4s and head for the road to Petra. At the modern entrance to the ancient site we leave our vehicles and commence the walk (horses available for this stage) to the imposing Siq Canyon. A 1/2 hr walk through its towering canyon walls leads us into Petra. We tour the lost city on foot, exploring the main archeological sights. We stop for a refreshing buffet lunch at a restaurant within the site itself. Following lunch we commence the walk back to our vehicles. Clients who wish to do so may hire the services of the traditional transport providers (mules, camels and horse-drawn carriages) to help them on their way. The night in Petra at nearby 3 or 5* hotel.
Day 3- Visiting the historical sites of Madaba, Mt. Nebo and Jarash. Following breakfast we will start the day at Madaba. Madaba is rich in history and renowned for its ancient mosaics and Byzantine churches. We take in the highlights of Madaba including the famous 'Madaba Mosaic Map' (Madaba Map), consisting of 2 million pieces and dating back to the 6th, it depicts Jerusalem and the surrounding areas. Other mosaics are found in the various churches and museums dedicated to their preservation. Not far from Madaba is the biblical  Mt. Nebo, according to Jewish and Christian tradition it was from this mountain that Moses saw the promised land and where he was buried. After taking in the views from the mountain we head to Jarash. Jarash is widely considered one of the most remarkable and best preserved Roman cities in the world. It was hidden beneath the desert sands until just 70 years ago when excavation and renovation work began. Having visited the main sites of Jarash we return to our hotel in Petra by evening.
We depart Jordan at the Aqaba - Eilat border or Sheik Hussein into central Israel.

Tours to Jordan 2 - 7 Day 4X4 Desert Jeep Tour
(Jordan tours)
This jeep tour in Jordan focused in Southern Jordan, Petra, Wadi Rum, The Edom Mountains and the Canyons of the Dead Sea area. Difficulty level - from easy to difficult, according to request (Hotel accommodation upon request) Explore the beautiful and vast Wadi Rum, with its red sand dunes and natural pillars of sandstone rock, sculptured by millions of years of gentle erosion. This enchanting and mystical region was the favorite place of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) and here we find the towering pillars named after his famous book 'The Seven Pillars of Wisdom'. We tour this magnificent region for two days and spend two Arabian Nights in the soft sands under the starry desert skies.
Journeying on from Wadi Rum we arrive in Petra. This legendary city was carved thousands of years ago from the red Sandstone Mountains by the ancient Nabateans. Having walked through the magnificent canyon that leads there, the beauty of this wondrous city is suddenly revealed to you. Having explored this historical phenomenon we return to our jeep and begin our journey on the steep mountain 4X4 routes that wind their way down the Edom Mountains. These dramatic scenic routes, such as Wadi Dalara and Wadi Namla take us all the way down to the Arava Valley that runs the whole length these beautiful mountains.
Driving to the north of the Arava Valley we reach the Moav Mountains of the Dead Sea area and their famous canyons such as Wadi Arnon, which is almost sub-tropic. Iben Hamad and Wadi Hadira are the most impressive of all of these canyons, hidden in the heart of the Jordanian desert, these narrow and deep canyons flow year-round with warm spring water and natural rock pools are scattered throughout their length. We spend several hours each day walking through each of these canyons. During these walks you're probably going to get very wet and at times may have to swim a little. Having reached the enormous red sand dunes of the Northern Arava Valley, an exciting drive through these dunes takes us on to the breathtaking canyons of Wadi Ahmer and Wadi Nachla. Walking through the narrower canyons ones and driving into others, you will see canyons of imposing red granite rock and soft colorful sandstone, side by side, in this region of delightful contrast.

Tours to Jordan 3 - 7 Day Camel Tour (Jordan tours)
This tour to Jordan focussed in the area of Wadi Rum Difficulty level - from easy to difficult, according to request.
Exploring the whole region of the legendary Wadi Rum upon the most ancient and by far the most enchanting mode of desert transport, the camel. With its leisurely pace and gentle swing this great creature carries its rider and load over sand and mountain, through canyons and wadis, whilst barely seeming to notice their presence.
Despite ungrounded stigmas to the contrary, the camel is in fact a quiet placid animal (although occasionally stubborn) whose harmonious relationship with its handler often lasts for a lifetime. In this region particularly, camels have for thousands of years been living with the Nomadic Bedouin and are entirely domesticated. Escorted by its Bedouin handler (who will show you how to ride your camel properly and comfortably), your camel will carry you on the desert voyage through this mystical and magnificent land. Where, since ancient times, its rare visitors have witnessed in awe, its timeless and splendid wonder. During this voyage you will meet with local Nomadic Bedouin and witness their unique way of life. You will walk through desert valleys and canyons, rarely explored since the dawning of time and visit the stunning Nebatean City of Petra. Our evenings and nights are spent around a campfire under the astonishingly clear skies, laden with the millions of brilliant stars whichmake the desert nights the most splendid of all.
Jordan camel tours Price: 2 pax.- 495$ per day in total, 3 pax- 230$ p.p. per day 4 pax or more- 200$ per person per day.
Jordan camel tours do include caping and hotels 3* accommodation.

Tours to Jordan 4 - 7 Day Hiking/ trekking Tour in the canyons of the Dead Sea (Jordan tours) 
This Jordan tour focussed in the Canyons of the Dead Sea, Moav & Edom Mountains.
Difficulty level - from moderate, to difficult for experienced hikers only.
For people who truly love to hike through nature, there can be little that matches the appeal of a trek that combines breathtaking mountain peaks with deep canyons and gorges. Centered in the Northern Edom and Moav Mountains, we hike each day through one of the magnificent canyons that are unique to this area. Beginning in the mountains we descend through the canyons and are met in the evening by a car or jeep carrying our evening provisions and camping equipment (this keeps backpacks light, allowing us greater freedom and comfort). The same transport returns us up to the mountains and our start point for the next day's hike. Many of the hikes pass through canyons of running water, where short swims are sometimes essential in order to pass. Favorite hiking routes include: Petra and Wadi Mussa, explore the wondrous Petra before setting off on a hiking trek no less astonishing. Wadi Mussa (meaning 'Valley of Moses'), begins high up in the Edom Mountains at Petra, and ends in the sands of the Arava Valley. A full-days hike takes us through this famous Wadi, rich in picturesque waterfalls, Bedouin Gardens (where fruit and herbs are grown) and ancient Nabatean ruins.
Wadi Eben Hamad is the most colorful and scenic canyon in the area, a warm spring runs its entire length before reaching the Dead Sea. Warm rock pools are found throughout the whole canyon, covered in trees and vegetation it is almost sub-tropic. Most surprising of all, in the midst of all this, is a real man-made Turkish bath, surreal in its location, it is surrounded and sheltered by trees. We bathe here in the warm water of what must be one of the areas best kept secrets. Wadi Arnon and Wadi Hidan are the largest and most impressive of all the canyons. Their vertical walls tower 500 meters from the base and the streams, which run their length, reach up to 15 meters high after rain. Due to this no vegetation can grow in the canyons. Particularly outstanding are their Travertine's (similar to stalagmites) and the palm trees that in places grow horizontally across the top of the canyon completely obscuring the sky. This gives the impression of actually walking through a massive cave. Wadi Hassa, imposing vertical walls tower over the hot springs and waterfalls running at its base, an 18km walk takes us right through this lush green canyon. Wadi Zarkat El Mayin ('Green Valley of Springs'), hot springs originate at the top of this impressive canyon and flow all the way down to the Dead Sea. Wadi Ruwer, is the lesser traveled and wildest of all the canyons and a firm favorite amongst our guides.

Tours to Jordan- 5 Day Combined Jeep Camel & Hiking Tour (Jordan tours) 
Day 1 - Departing for this Jordan tour early morning we head staight to Jordans treasure - Petra. A city so steeped in myths it remains almost a legand to this day. We tour by foot this remarkable and fascinating city, visiting the sights of particular beauty and interest. Whilst hiking through Petra we learn about its creators and occupants. We journey through time as we hear about its rich and colorful history. We stop inside Petra for a buffet lunch before continuing our tour of the sites main archeological highlights. You may use the services or local camel and mule handlers  to help us on the return journey from ancient Petra to our vehicle. We leave Petra in our jeeps and begin our journey on the spectacular routes which wind their way down through the Adom Mountains to the Arava Valley. Setting up camp en-route for well-earned evening of relaxation under the desert skies.
Day 2 - Driving to the north of the Arava Valley we reach the dramatic canyons and gorges of the Dead Sea area. Wadi Arnon and Iben Hamad are the most impressive of these canyons. Staggeringly deep and flowing year-round with hot spring water with rock pools scattered throughout their length. We take a four-hour walk into one of these stunning canyons on narrow tracks at times walking in the river itself. Having dried off, it's back into the jeep and on to the enormous sand dunes just south of the Dead Sea. Here in the soft red sand we spend a magical Arabian night.
Day 3 - Driving through the red sand dunes we reach the breathtaking canyons of the Nothern Arava Valley (including Wadi Ahmer and Wadi Nachla). Walking into some and driving into others, canyons of red granite rock and soft sandstone found side by side in a delightful contrast. From here we follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia and make our way to the famous Wadi Ram. Here we set up camp just in time for the spectacular sunset and enjoy a serene desert evening around the campfire, on which dinner is cooked, before settling for the night under the star spangled sky
Day 4 & 5 - The last day of the tour is spent in the beautiful and vast Wadi Rum, here we find red sand dunes and natural pillars of sandstone rock that were sculptured by millions of years of gentle erosion. This enchanting and mystical region inspired T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia)  and we find here the 'Seven Pillars' named after his famous book. Wadi Rum's unique and awesome qualities still mesmorise the  travellers who venture there. Having explored this beautiful area we head to our hotels or south, to join the main road and at the Arava border crossing arrive back in Eilat.

Camel tours in Jordan and Wadi Rum
To really experience spirit of the desert we can leave the jeep tours behind and take a more traditional kind of journey, by camel. Camel tours in Wadi Rum offer an authentic desert experience, suitable for all ages and for families, it is an outdoor experience that is difficult to match. We join the local Bedouin and experience their ancient desert lifestyle, enjoying traditional meals and pita bread prepared on the open campfire. We camp outdoors at the most scenic spots along the route and enjoy magical Arabian evenings under the awe-inspiring desert night-skies of Wadi Rum. Each participant has his own camel to ride and the Camels in Rum are comfortable to ride on. They move graciously over the sands, treading softly and swaying gently in a slow relaxing movement. Its Bedouin handler accompanies each camel but those who prefer to ride their camel unaided my do so. Camel tours get to the lesser-visited areas of the Rum and involve some walking into the canyons and natural trails along the way.
For thousands of years merchants have crossed the sands of Wadi Rum with their camel caravans on the spice route from Asia to Europe. The sandy expanses of Wadi Rum are surrounded by beautifully eroded mountains, rock formations, canyons and towering pillars of sandstone. We can find en route inscriptions left in the rock by those who traveled here many centuries before us.
