EXPLORE Holyland: Jordan – Israel – Egypt (Oct 31-Nov 10, 2021)

Jordan, Israel & Egypt

We've always wanted to visit the Holy Land countries, but we couldn't find a package we liked... so we made one! We proudly present our version of the Holy Land adventure. Eleven days of culture, history and adventure; spanning 3 countries and carefully picked mix of awesome destinations.

We'll fly into Amman, the capital of Jordan, where our journey begins. After a good night's rest we're off to explore Amman, the ancient city of Madaba and Mt. Nebo. We're then off to Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and a truly special place. We then kick the adventure one notch higher as we push into Wadi Rum, an otherworldly desert, where we'll do a 4x4 adventure into our desert camp. The next day, we'll head back north and into the Dead Sea, where we'll get to enjoy the lowest place on earth!

It's now time to cross into Israel and onto Jerusalem but first we'll pass through Jericho, the oldest city in the world. Before heading to Jerusalem, we'll pass by Bethlehem first, Jesus' birthplace. Jerusalem, with its deep and rich history and intersection of faiths, is certainly a highlight! We'll visit important biblical sites such as the Mount of Olives, the Rock of Agony, the Garden of Gethsemane, Via Dolorosa and one of the Jews' most religious sites, the Wailing Wall.

We then embark on a road trip to our last destination, Egypt! After border formalities, we'll drive into the Cairo and check-in to our hotel. The next day marks our last full day of adventure where we'll visit Memphis, Sakkara, the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx! We'll toast to our epic trip and say goodbye to your new-found travel buddies!
