All-Women Expedition to Jordan
During this week-long tour, you'll experience the diversity of
this Middle Eastern haven alongside like-minded women. From
Jordan's capital Amman, to the Wadi Rum desert, you'll learn about
the ancient art of henna, before an exhilarating 4x4 experience
across the sandy terrain.
You'll have two days in Petra, joining a local family for dinner before embarking on a candlelight tour of the Old Town. The following day, you'll meet a female shepherd before seeing the iconic sights of the city, including the temples and tombs carved into the cliffs.
Your trip ends with a two-night stay at a resort on the Dead Sea - the lowest point on earth. Take time to relax and unwind and experience how it feels to float on the salty lake.
