Book selected Jordan trips by 3rd July and enjoy a FREE evening to remember at Petra, with music and dancing by candlelight.

The Treasury at Petra is one of Jordan’s most recognisable sights, reached by the narrow passageway of the siq, carved from rosy pink sandstone. After exploring the ancient ruins during the day, what better way to experience the lost city from a unique perspective than under the cover of darkness on a Petra by night tour? Book one of our holidays to Jordan and you’ll get to experience Petra after dark for FREE.

During an evening to remember you’ll leave the bright lights of Wadi Musa behind as a Bedouin tribesman leads you along the siq by candlelight, where you’ll emerge into the space in front of the Treasury lit by over a thousand candles. A performance of Bedouin music and dancing sets the scene as you’re entertained with stories from the desert and the history of Petra. Capturing the spirit of adventure that once inspired Lawrence of Arabia, experiencing Petra at night adds a new dimension to your understanding of the city.

Though Petra is certainly a highlight of all Jordan tours, the country is full of amazing experiences, from desert exploration to bathing in the Dead Sea – have a read of our blog to discover five unique experiences you’ll only find in Jordan.

Book now quoting ‘Petra by Night Offer’ and don’t miss out on the chance to see Petra after dark for free.
