Attracted by stunning ladscapes and warm hospitality? Take an all-women trip to Jordan this November >

Learn about the lives of Jordanian women on a fascinating group tour of a Middle Eastern haven

Jordan is a mystical and enigmatic land, untroubled by the woes of some of its neighbours and a wonderfully safe haven for women to travel together, taking the time to get to know each other and meeting the local women who call this country home.

On an eight-day group trip, you'll experience the variety of this nation, first exploring Amman, Jordan's capital, before heading south to the incredible terrain of the Wadi Rum Desert. You'll have the chance to learn more about the ancient art of henna and how Jordanians use and apply it before a night under the stars in a desert camp. Your adventure continues the following morning on an exhilarating 4x4 experience across the Wadi Rum Desert.

You're bound for Petra next - stopping en route for a dip in hot springs to break up the journey. You'll join a family for dinner in Petra, taking the opportunity to learn how everyday life unfolds in Jordan and sampling the local food. A special visit to Petra's incredible monuments by candlelight is bound to be a particularly memorable and atmospheric moment on the expedition.

You'll have a further day to get to know Petra better, meeting a female shepherd before a tour of this ancient Nabataean city to see world-famous monuments in the daylight, allowing closer observation of these ancient marvels.

The trip concludes with two nights in a resort on the Dead Sea. Take time to relax on these shores, experience how it feels to float on the salty and buoyant lake, find shade around the pool or indulge in the spa.
