Trip Overview

Depart from Dublin to Amman.

Your private driver will be waiting to transfer you to your luxury hotel, where you’ll spend two nights in the capital. We’ll take you on a guided city tour, introducing you to fascinating ruins like the historic citadel, 8th-century Umayyad Palace and Temple of Hercules.

Discover Jerash.

An excellent representation of the fall of the Roman Empire, it is one of the best preserved Roman provincial towns in the world. Often referred to “Pompeii of the East”, your guided tour will introduce you to magnificent temples, ancient theatres and colonnaded streets.

Jerash, Jordan
It’s time to witness the wonders of Petra.

Spend two nights in Wadi Musa and set out on a guided discovery of Petra, a lost sandstone city carved deeply into the mountain rock. Nicknamed as the “Lost City of Stone” it was rediscovered in 1812, after centuries of lying undisturbed.

Petra, Jordan
Transfer to the peaceful desert sands of Wadi Rum.

The timeless desert, virtually untouched by mankind, offers an exceptional experience in Jordan. Spend the night in a luxury bubble camp, enjoy traditional Jordanian cuisine and embark on desert excursions with Bedouin guides.

Wadi Rum, Jordan
Take a scenic transfer to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on the face of the earth.

Spending two nights in a luxury hotel, relax on the shores of nature’s health spa. Float on the surface of the famed salt lake as you unwind in the gentle rays of the Jordanian sunshine.

Dead Sea
Depart for Muscat, the capital of Oman.

Upon arrival, privately transfer to your beachfront hotel where you will spend two nights. We’ll take you on a guided city tour, visiting renowned landmarks like the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the Sultan’s Al Alam Palace in Old Muscat.

Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, Oman
Transfer to one of our partner mountain retreats in the Al Hajar Mountains.

Stop off at the 400-year-old town of Al Hamra to admire some of the oldest preserved houses in Oman. Arrive in your luxury hotel in Jebel Akhdar for your three night stay.

Al Hajar Mountains, Oman
Trek the Saiq Plateau.

An upland plateau defined by steep gorges and rugged summits, marvel at spectacular views throughout the hike. Visit the ruined village of Wadi Bani Habib and continue along ancient farming trails for a picnic in the shade of the pomegranate trees.

Pomegranate trees, Oman
Leave the mountains for the dunes of Wahiba Sands.

The sands are home to the Bedouin, a semi-nomadic group who are said to be the oldest inhabitants of the Arabian deserts. On a one-night desert camping experience, get a glimpse into traditional life that is soon disappearing.

Wahiba Sands, Oman
Return by transfer to Muscat.

Spend your final two nights in the capital and be introduced to one more wonder; Oman’s natural swimming pools know as wadis. We’ll take you to Wadi Bani Khalid, where you can spend the day bathing in the glorious natural pools and enjoy a scenic picnic lunch.

One of the oldest souqs in the country, this thriving marketplace continues to attract locals and visitors alike. Stroll through extensive collections of seasonal fruit and vegetables, colourful spices and handmade crafts. We’ll then take you to the impressive Nizwa Fort.
