Treasures of Petra

A short stay in Aqaba and Petra at a special tariff, utilising the new twice weekly easyJet flights to Aqaba, staying in classic 5-star resorts in prime locations and visiting Petra, Little Petra, Wadi Rum and Shobak castle

When ancient Petra was voted one of the ‘New 7 Wonders of the World’ in 2007, visitor numbers increased significantly with a ‘peak’ in 2012, the 200-year anniversary of the re-discovery of Petra by Burckhardt. Recently visitor numbers to Jordan have increased again and easyJet have now opened a direct route from Gatwick to Aqaba for a limited winter season when temperatures are best for sightseeing. Indeed it is so popular that an additional service each week has been added, allowing for a shorter visit, so early booking is recommended!

Stay on Jordan’s coastal city of Aqaba before venturing to the famous archaeological site of Petra and the dramatic natural beauty of Wadi Rum, used for the filming of 'Lawrence of Arabia' and most recently ‘Aladdin’.
