    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 >WADI RUM

    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. Catch connecting flight from Amman to Aqaba (King Hussein Int'l Airport). 1 hour

    Transfer from airport to Wadi Rum accommodation 

    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.

    DAY 3  -  WADI RUM - 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 4 - WADI RUM > Dead Sea

    Take the scenic road for our transfer to the Dead Sea

    DAY 5 - DEAD SEA

     Explore 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 6 - Head home

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


    LUMEYO WEAVING

    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.
