The Jordan Experience

Petra + Wadi Rum + Amman

There aren’t very many places in the world where you stroll through giant cracks to visit an ancient city carved in stone, submerge yourself in a mud bath, swim in healing waters, and kick back in luxury as you wake to an out-of-this-world landscape.

Join the Up in the Air Life crew as we visit this unique world wonder on our 7-day luxury adventure through Jordan. Experience the Middle East in a way you didn’t know was possible. You can’t call yourself a globetrotter until you’ve explored the depths of Petra and slept in the Wadi Rum desert for yourself. 

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of your body thanking you as you indulge in a healing bath after a long day connecting with nature, treating your taste buds to delicious meals, and taking retrospective time while enjoying the silence of the Jordanian desert.

And you didn’t come snatched for anything! The pics you will snap of your melanin poppin’ through the scenic rose-red sandstones in Petra or having the time of your life swimming in the dead sea will be enough to stunt the haters.

Whether you are soaking up the sun in the Wadi Rum desert doing martian walks, chillaxing by a campfire, or wandering around impressive historical sites, you’ll feel blessed to experience these incredible open-air museums in the Middle East.

Priceless moments with new friends, natural exploration, pampered relaxation, and checking a world wonder off your bucket list awaits you on your Up in the Air Life journey through Jordan.

THIS TRIP IS NOT FOR YOU, IF:

Day 1

Embark on a luxurious journey to Wadi Musa, the quaint town that paves the way to Petra’s ancient marvels.

Upon arrival, settle into a five-star sanctuary that promises unparalleled comfort and elegance, set amidst the historical backdrop of ‘Valley of Moses’.

After unwinding, gather for a grand welcome feast to meet your travel companions. Here, celebrate the start of an exciting exploration with a toast to the adventures that await.

Day 2

Savor a leisurely morning and a delectable breakfast at the hotel, then set off on a full-day guided odyssey to Petra. This ancient city, etched into blush-colored cliffs, stands as a testament to human ingenuity and is revered as a UNESCO World Heritage Site—Jordan’s most prized relic.

Wander through the Siq, the main entrance to Petra, a narrow gorge flanked by towering cliffs, leading to the city’s most famous monument, the Treasury.

As you traverse the ruins, you’ll encounter colossal tombs, temples, and a Roman-style theatre, all whispering tales of a once-thriving civilization. Capture Petra’s splendor and share the breathtaking scenes with your followers. Our celebratory evening at the hotel will toast to the awe-inspiring sights and the unforgettable experiences of our collective adventure.

Day 3

Savor a delightful breakfast, setting the stage for our journey to Wadi Rum’s mesmerizing desert, where we’ll spend two nights in a renowned camp, known for its luxurious bubble suites and tents, reminiscent of a scene from a sci-fi movie.

This surreal landscape, with its rich, red sands, has been the backdrop for films like ‘Star Wars’ and ‘Aladdin,’ offering a glamorous desert experience. Embark on a thrilling 4×4 adventure across the vast desert, exploring its majestic beauty.

Evenings are for indulging in a gourmet dinner under the stars, followed by stargazing next to a cozy campfire. The desert’s profound stillness and darkness will create a truly memorable experience.

Day 4

Awaken to extraordinary vistas that unfold before you from the comfort of your sumptuous desert dwelling. Partake in a breakfast that seems to mirror the boundless landscape, all within the unique ambiance of your bubble tent.

As you gaze through the expanse of your tent’s viewing panel, the desert’s majesty demands a moment of silent reverence. Capture the essence of this vibrant scene, a perfect contrast to your own essence, in photographs that will serve as timeless mementos.

You may opt to meander through the dunes on a camel’s back or find serenity in solitude, perhaps chronicling your journey or simply meditating on the profound silence that the desert offers, a canvas for introspection amidst your ongoing adventure.

Day 5

Our voyage takes us from the red-hued landscapes that seem plucked from Martian fantasies, transitioning through a scenic drive back to the heart of Jordan’s cultural tapestry.

After settling into this bastion of comfort, we prepare for an afternoon steeped in historical and spiritual significance. We embark on a guided tour to one of the most sacred locales in Jordan—the baptismal site by the River Jordan.

This revered place, believed to be the setting of Jesus’ baptism, offers a profound connection to the past for pilgrims and visitors alike. Guests may choose to partake in a baptism ceremony, an experience that resonates with deep cultural and personal meaning, surrounded by the serene echoes of history.

As the tour unfolds, we’ll explore the chapels, churches, and riverside contemplation spots that dot this holy site, each narrating its own chapter of a timeless story.

Day 6

Awake to a day of leisure at the Dead Sea’s prestigious retreat, where luxury and tranquility merge. Begin with a leisurely morning, perhaps enjoying the views from your suite or indulging in the hotel’s many amenities, from the infinity pool mirroring the sky to the renowned spa where the minerals of the Dead Sea rejuvenate your spirit.

As the amber hues of the evening sky begin to paint the horizon, prepare for a culinary journey at the hotel. A sunset cooking class, hosted by expert chefs, invites you to learn the secrets of local cuisine. Amidst laughter and learning, create dishes that tantalize your palate, all while the sun dips below the serene Dead Sea, closing your day with a splash of color and a feast of flavors.

Day 7

On your final day at the Dead Sea oasis, indulge in the morning’s tranquility, perhaps with a final float in the mineral-rich waters or a serene moment captured on the terrace of your luxury suite.

As you pack the memories alongside your belongings, a leisurely stroll through the manicured gardens or a farewell dip in the infinity pool might be in order. Savor the last whispers of relaxation until your private driver escorts you from the serene embrace of this haven, back to the bustling airport for your journey home.
