Later, you'll embark on a hike through the Ajloun Nature Reserve. As you venture through forests of oak and pistachio trees, make your way along the Soap House Trail en route to a traditional village house where Orjan olive oil soap is produced by local women.
After a long day, you'll head back to rest or enjoy dinner at your hotel.

On your agenda for today are the stunning 7th and 8th century Desert Castles of Jordan. Constructed under the rule of the caliph's of the Umayyad, Qasr Amra, Qasr Al Kharraneeh, and Qasr Al Azraq are exquisite examples of early Islamic architecture that reveal the fine craftsmanship of age-old artisans with their mosaics, frescoes, and stone carvings.
Your adventure continues with a visit to the Dead Sea. Situated 398 meters (1,206 feet) below sea level, this is the lowest spot on earth! Soak in these healing waters, float on the sea's buoyant surface, and be enriched by this warm, fertile region.

Visit The Magnificent Sandstone City Of Petra
Today, you will visit the "Red-Rose" city of Petra, one of the most magnificent and mysterious cities in the world!

Enjoy a leisurely breakfast at your hotel this morning. Later, you'll spend some time exploring Petra on your own.
Sometimes referred to as the "Lost City," Petra is an ancient place, which is thought to have been settled over 10,000 years ago. Once an important trading destination during the height of the Nabataean Kingdom, Petra eventually declined in importance over time and was only rediscovered by a Swiss traveler in 1812.
