Since I watched Indiana Jones when I was a child, I alwaays dreamt with the possibility to visit Jordan at some point in my life. Well, I’ve had the pleasure to coordinate a trip there with WeRoad (remember use promo code INCOORSANCHEZLAR to get £200 off any trip) and it has instantly jumped to my top 5 countries ever visited.

This itinerary will take you from ancient historical sites to explore the desert landscape in a Jeep, sleep with the Bedouins in the desert, and get your float on in the Dead Sea pampering your skin with a mineral-rich mud mask. And to finish it off there will be time for some water activities in one of the major destinations for sealife and corals.

Mars in Earth: like being in a different planet in Wadi Rum desert, Jordan.

Wadi Rum has been the location chosen to record a few movies, and only being there you'll understand why. The rock formations, the different shades of red of the sand, the hospitality of the bedouins, the camels, the 4x4 excursions... definitely one of the most memorable experiences of my life.


8 days fully packed are enough to enjoy the very best of this city. However there’s so much to do and see that if you can extend your holidays a couple of extra days would give you some very nice relaxing time.

Day 1 – Arrival to Amman and Jerash Ruins

Flight to Amman International Airport. There are some direct flights from major airports.

If you’ve got time plan a half-day tour to the amazing Roman ruins of Jerash. They’re only 45mins away from Amman and they are a top sight of the trip.

Day 2  – Take a dip in the Dead Sea and discover the Wadi Mujib Reserve

Let the adventure begin! It is time to hike the Wadi Mujib, a natural reserve that flows into the Dead Sea. You will be trekking against the river current, clambering over the rocks (so be prepared to get wet) until the grand finale….a dip in the impressive waterfall! The reserve is only open for the dry months (normally May to October), so check beforehand.

Then drive to the Dead Sea, where there are a few resorts that can welcome you for the day to enjoy one of the best experiences of your live: floating in the salty waters of the sea. For around £35 you can get in the resort and have a buffet lunch.

Day 3 – Madaba, Kerak Castle and Little Petra

It is an early start today because we will drive kilometres towards Petra! We start the day with the fascinating mosaics of Madaba, then drive to Kerak Castle (which is the second largest castle in the region and, after the Syrian one, is the most important crusader castle in the Middle East), to then arrive in the afternoon to Little Petra.

You can opt to enjoy the famous “Petra by Night” tonight. I would not recommend it, but if you want it ‘for the gram’, I’d encourage you to do it before you see Petra by day.

Day 4 – The breathtaking city of Petra

Today is dedicated to the mesmerizing ancient city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. We walk through the narrow Siq, a stunning sandstone canyon, until we reach the iconic Treasury (Al-Khazneh), an architectural marvel carved into the rock face. As we explore the intricately carved facades, tombs, and temples of this ancient Nabatean city, we are transported back in time, marveling at the grandeur and ingenuity of its creators.

Day 5 – Wadi Rum Desert

Leaving Petra behind, we venture into the otherworldly landscapes of the Wadi Rum desert. We embark on a thrilling 4×4 desert safari, traversing the vast sand dunes and dramatic rock formations. At the Um Fruth Bridge, we hike to a natural rock arch, taking in the panoramic views of the Martian-like landscape that has enchanted explorers and filmmakers alike.

Day 6 – Relaxation and snorkeling at the Red Sea

Today, we have the option to either unwind and soak up the sun on the pristine beaches of the Red Sea or embark on thrilling water activities such as snorkeling or diving to explore the vibrant coral reefs. The Red Sea’s crystal-clear waters and abundant marine life offer a perfect respite and a chance to connect with nature.

Day 7 – Exploring Amman City

Returning to the capital city, Amman, we delve into its rich history and bustling streets. We explore the vibrant markets of the old city (Al-Balad), immersing ourselves in the sights, sounds, and aromas of its labyrinthine alleys. Climbing to Jabal Amman, we discover the modern side of the city, with its trendy cafes, art galleries, and cultural centers. We savor delicious Jordanian cuisine and soak up the vibrant atmosphere of this cosmopolitan capital.

Day 8 – Goodbye Jordan

Not ready to do a solo trip? Why not joining a group to do this tour? You can check WeRoad’s website and do this itinerary in Jordan or many others! Use promo code INCOORSANCHEZLAR for £200 off any tour!


Jordan is a cheap country when you get out of the tourist areas, but activities and all touristic sights are surprisingly not that cheap.

Accommodation is inexpensive. A similar app to Uber called Grab is widely used making local transportation cheap and easy.

Being a mostly Muslim country alcohol is not very cheap, so probably that’s where you’ll need to tighten your budget ?

Return flights

You will find better deals if you do a layover in some of the Arab Emirates.
