In the afternoon drive an hour north to the city of Jarash where you will find the ancient city of Gerasa.

Lit up with 1,800 candles go on a tour of this magical wonder.
The next day, you will return to Petra by daylight accompanied by your guide. Walk around the city, not missing the Al Khazneh, the infamous carved pink rock facade.

In the afternoon, you will transfer by car to the Wadi Rum, a vast, extraordinary landscape, dubbed as the Valley of the Moon. Transfer into a 4×4 vehicle and tour the area. You will stay overnight in the wadi in canvas tents and with all the facilities you need. Enjoy a buffet dinner and star gazing before heading to your tent.
