We're going on another adventure, this time in Arabian lands, in Jordan. Jordan is one of the most charming countries in the Middle East and is part of the dreams of most travelers. We will take you on an 8-day gay adventure in one of the best travel destinations where you can expect to meet friendly people, a surprising country, where modernity and tradition go hand in hand, and the wonders of man and nature appear everywhere.
Jordan is synonymous with Petra, one of the 7 New Wonders of the World and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It's also synonymous with floating in the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth's surface, exploring the Wadi Rum Desert, which gained fame after the film Lawrence of Arabia (1962). The first striking feature of Wadi Rum is its color, with a reddish and orange color.
Here we'll spend a night, in this spectacular setting, in a Bedouin camp, where you'll also enjoy a typical Bedouin dinner.
You will also visit Amman, the capital of Jordan, which is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world, as well as Jerash, an imperial metropolis lost between verdant hills and valleys, the city of Madaba, home to the largest Christian community in Jordan and Mount Nebo, the place from where the prophet Moses first saw the Promised Land and where he ended up dying and being buried.
Among all these activities, you'll also have time for yourself, to discover at your own pace, bathe in the waters of the dead sea (you don't need to know how to swim), go shopping, rest, among other activities that you want to do and enjoy.
Hello and welcome to exotic and mysterious Jordan.
Upon your arrival at Amman International Airport (AMM), you'll have a transfer waiting for you that will take you directly to the hotel in maximum comfort. Here we will be waiting for you and it will be the meeting point for the group. Depending on your arrival time, you will still be able to enjoy the hotel's swimming pool, until dinner time arrives.
On our first night we will have our first group dinner, to introduce ourselves/get to know each other and socialize.
Included: • Transfer from airport to hotel in Amman • Welcome Gift • Group dinner • Hotel in Amman
Let's start the day with a delicious breakfast to gain strength for the first day. Today we'll start with a local guide, who will guide us during the morning through the most important avenues, such as Rainbow Street, the Citadel, the urban center and the Roman Theater, monumental emblem of the city's imperial stage. We will also visit other great attractions, monuments and mosques.
After visiting the emblematic capital, we head to the ancient city of Jerash. Jerash is an incredible Roman city of unique beauty, it houses the remains of the Roman region of Decapolis. It's one of the best preserved Roman cities in the world. There are even those who consider it the main ruin of a Roman city outside Italy. In this ancient imperial city, some remains of the Temple of Aphrodite and the Roman Theater are still preserved, among other important public places that you will see, such as the Arc de Triomphe and many others.
We will still have time for an optional group lunch or wherever you wish.
In the afternoon we head towards one of the freshest and greenest areas in all of Jordan, with simply spectacular views, Aljoun Castle, a strategic fortress with a past full of interesting stories.
At the end of the day, we'll be back at the hotel, where you can enjoy the rest of the time as you wish.
In the evening we will have another group dinner and the rest of the time is free.

After having breakfast at the hotel in Amman, we'll head north to visit three of the most important castles in the desert: Harranah, Amra and Azraq. There, our private guide will tell the story of these emblematic places, which were used as military forts.
Then, from the desert lands of southern Jordan, we set off along the Dead Sea road, heading north to one of the most impressive places in the Middle East: the Dead Sea. If you want, you can swim in this salt lake, whose particular conditions will allow you to float without needing to know how to swim. It is 400 meters below sea level, and its unique characteristics allow you to experience the enormous buoyancy that these waters have, due to their high concentration of salt. It will be the best way to regain energy!
Here you'll have time available, as we have already indicated, to swim, float, take that special photo and have another optional group lunch.
Finally, after you've had an experience that everyone should have at least once in their lives, we'll start the journey back to the hotel in Amman, where we'll have one more dinner included, and then perhaps rest until the next day.

The views from this place are really impressive! You'll have a panoramic view over the Dead Sea and the Jordan River valley.
Then, we'll head to Um Er-Rasas, where we'll see the perfectly preserved mosaic floor of the Church of St. Stephen, built in 785 and discovered only in 1986.
We will continue our route going to Shobak Castle, a strong fortress of the Knights Templar located in the heart of the Arabá Valley. Lonely reminder of former Crusader glory, built in 1115 by Bedouin King, it was built as a defense of the road between Damascus and Egypt.

On this tour of the ancient royal capital of the Nebataeans, we'll learn about the history of this ancient desert people and admire its main monuments carved into the rock, royal tombs and the Treasury of Petra, an imposing monument declared a World Heritage Site. The Treasury is the most emblematic place. Traveling along its paths gives us an indescribable feeling. The Siq, is a long and narrow gorge that marks the main entrance to this mysterious place. It will be fascinating!

It will be a unique and incomparable visit. It was inhabited by the Nabataeans and has many tombs, watersheds and canals, it has a small path that leads to a part of the inner area, Siq Al Bared, the scale of this area and the fact that it is the continuation of Petra, gave it the name of Little Petra.
