Day Trip to Petra by Air

Day Trip to Petra by Air

    Pick up from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh will be at around 05.00. This is an estimated time, we will confirm with you when you let us know in which hotel in Sharm El Sheikh you are staying. You will fly from Sharm el Sheikh airport to Aqaba airport where you will be met and assisted by your guide. You will then be driven by air conditioned bus to Petra.

 

    We start the tour on foot, though the Siq or the Canyon ; a narrow, winding gorge over 1 kilometre in length. Beautiful sandstone formations of Petra were once occupied by the Edomites. One of the reasons why Petra was such an attractive site for the Nabateans is its virtual invisibility behind a narrow and easily defensible canyon known as the Siq.

 

    As you come to the end of this beautiful ravine, a very narrow opening offers a peephole to one of the most spectacular sites in Petra - the treasury. Carved out of the side of the sandstone mountain face, probably in the first century BC, scholars continue to debate as to its actual function.

 

    After the visit to the treasury, we will visit the Roman theatre which dates back to Byzantine era & the Royal tombs. Little is known about the ancient culture of the Nabateans, except that they were excellent engineers with amazing skill and craft. They built water conservation and irrigation systems and carved their homes, temples and tombs directly out of the rocks.

 

    Lunch will be at the Movenpick hotel in the city centre.

 

    We continue our tour to the hill of Al-Habis fort which dates back to Crusader's times, for a breath-taking panoramic view of deep gullies and uniquely coloured rock formations.

 

    We will drive back to Aqaba at 18.45 where you will have some free time for shopping.

 

    You will then take the plane back to Sharm el Sheikh; arriving after midnight to be driven back to your hotel.
