Jordan Extreme tour
Jordan canyon-adventure

This program is specially offered those who like the ADVENTURE and the WATER, WATER, WATER! The tour contains two canyon tours to Wadi Zarka and Wadi Iben Hammad, which are undisputable the most beautiful nature spots of Jordan, but can not be seen by everybody. These canyons can be hiked just by those who are in a good physical condition, and not afraid of difficult situations, like when on a ladder should be climb down, or should be swim for a while in the high water canyon, or should be crossed in a narrow pass and so on. We would be surely wet, so appropriate cloth is necessary for the tour. This program can be made during the very hot summer also, while we are always close to water. Above the canyons during the tour we visit the Hammamat Main natural water-flow, the Dead Sea and the Red Sea. The adventure part of the program is combined with visiting the historic sites of Jordan.

We can walk in the oval shape Plaza surrounded by colonnades, visit the Roman Theatres, the Temples with mosaics-covers, walk along the main road, called Cargo and pass by the Nympheum. We drive to Madaba, to the ’city of mosaics’. Here in the Saint George’s Church we can see the mosaic map, which is the first and complete map of the Holy Land. It was found in 1884, when the church was rebuilt. We travel to the Mount Nebo, to the place from where Moses apparently saw the forbidden Promised Land. The top of the hill is Moses Memorial Church, which was built according to many scientists’ opinion on Moses’ tomb. Inside the Church beautiful old mosaics decorate the floor and the walls. We drive back to Amman, visit the old bazaar, in downtown Amman, than we go back to our hotel.

Many water is needed, everybody should bring is in back-bags. The bus will carry our languages. We meet the bus at the end of the canyon. We go for lunch to the Dead Sea SPA hotel, and swim at the lowest point on Earth, 400 meters below sea level. The expression of swim is not totally correct while we can’t swim rather float in the Dead Sea. The water has very high salt and much mineral content. Not just the water, but also the natural mud that can be found at the bottom of the sea are very healthy for every type of skin. In the afternoon we continue our tour to Kerak, to our next hotel.
