    WE ARE invites you to join a journey of a lifetime to the ancient lands in Jordan.  Start your adventure in one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world, Amman, before you graze your hands against the ruins in Petra brining you all the way back to 400 BC. Not long after, feel the magnetic and powerful energy from the vast desert in WadiRum Village, while looking into the deep eyes of a camel which you will soon be riding across the desert. This will be followed by exfoliating your bodies with the natural mud from the dead sea after floating on top of such unique waters, gazing into the sky. But, it doesn't end here. When we travel to a new land, we always do our part by giving back. We will be partnering with Bedoubag-- we will learn partake in a traditonal Lumeyo weaving workshop inspired by Bedouin Tradition. Join us in an adventure full of explorations, connection, creativity, and love. 


    DAY 1 - AMMAN

    We will all meet at the airport.  Together we will travel to our hotel to begin our adventure.  Arrival Airport (Queen Alia International Airport – Amman)

    Arrive in Amman at or before XX:XX.  If you wish to fly into Amman at an earlier time and do not want to wait you can arrange for your own travel to the accommodation. Meet Giulia the founder of WE ARE, Ami Vitale, + the ladies who will be on this adventure together this evening.  We will open this journey with a welcome ceremony where we will introduce ourselves and learn more about the tour and plans for the following day.  Choose to head out for an optional dinner at a local restaurant.

    DAY 2 - AMMAN - Jerash 

    Take a step back in time visiting Jerash, one of the most well-preserved Roman sites outside of Italy. Wander amid its paved and colonnaded streets, soaring hilltop temples, handsome theatres, spacious public squares and plazas, baths, fountains, and city walls pierced by towers and gates – all in exceptional condition.

    DAY 3  -  MADABA ( TBD)

    We will race the sun to get an early start for the long but very interesting drive by way of the King's Highway to Petra. The first stop is Mount Nebo, which is believed by many to be the site of Moses' death and has thus been a centre for pilgrimage since the earliest Christian times. Visit the town of Madaba, which has some of the finest Byzantine mosaics in the world.
    Madaba Mosaics Guided Tour Explore Madaba’s long history on this guided tour, including its role as the centre of early Christianity. See some of the finest Byzantine mosaics in the world, including the famous sixth-century mosaic map of the Middle East. Tour churches, the Archaeological Park, and the local museum that's housed in several old Madaba residences.

    DAY 4 /5 - WADI MUSA/PETRA

    Our adventure will take us to Petra to explore this UNESCO World Heritage site..  We will immerse ourselves in the history of the city, one of the greatest tourist attractions in the Middle East. The Nabateans carved this capital from the living rock of the surrounding mountains in Petra. Visit monuments that include the Pharaoh's Castle, the triumphal arch, the amphitheater, and the monastery.

    DAY 6 /7 - WADI MUSA/ DEAD SEA

    Travel back in time, with a camel ride, to an era of history where the traders, filled with dreams of prosperity, rode their camels for days and days through these mountains and deserts. In Wadi Rum, you will ride that path and experience the miraculous journey where humans and nature carved their paths on this desert habitat.

    Later, continue to the famed Dead Sea. Float weightlessly in the healing waters--swim and use the natural sea salts and mud as your own personal spa. At 423m (1,388 ft) below sea level, the shores of the Dead Sea are at the lowest land elevation on Earth. The sea is named because its salinity is so high (up to nine times that of the world’s oceans) that only a few microorganisms can live in its waters.

    DAY 8

    Back to Amman and goodbye .. see you on the next adventure

    One of the foundational principles of WE ARE’s mission is the desire to give back to the destinations visited; redefining how we answer the call to travel. 

    We will be partnering with Bedoubag  in a Lumeyo weaving workshop. 

    For centuries Bedouin women take pride in weaving tents, carpets, bags, horse decoration, items that  can survive years of heavy use. Nowadays the men of Petra work in tourism and their wives stay at home looking after the children. Their craft is put to little use except for making beautiful decorative and practical horse - and camel bags.

    This inspired founder of Bedoubag's to develop a product with them, based on their tradition, that would  appeal to a larger audience. We aim to create a new market and new appreciation for their work so they too can support their families and inspire their daughters to learn a craft. 

    By ordering a personal bedoubag you empower these women to provide for their families while creating a unique product they take pride in.
