Here is an example of what your time in Petra could look like.
Day 1 (Dinner Included):
Arrive in Petra in the afternoon and meet your host at the designated meeting point. Today you will enjoy your first unique experience during your holiday in Jordan unique, you are going to try your hand at making shrak bread!
Fresh bread is an integral part of Jordanian life. No meal is considered complete without bread. The smell of fresh bread baking is one that stimulates the senses. Join the locals in Petra and let them show you traditional breads with techniques that have been passed down the generations.
On arrival you will meet your Chef for the bread making eco experience. Then it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get ready to make Shrak.
Food will be a great memory of your holiday in Jordan. After you have tried your hand at the art of making bread you will of course get to eat it! You will be served a traditional meal of seneyah (seasoned chicken with vegetables) for dinner.
After dinner you will go to your accommodation for overnight.
Day 2 (Lunch included):
Today you will head off early with a shepherd tending to their flock. It’s a chance to experience a way of life that hasn’t changed in centuries on your holiday in Jordan. A time to marvel in the beauty of traditions and customs passed on through the ages.
The shepherd will demonstrate how the sheep move to the clanging of the bells. Where possible the younger ones can enjoy a ride on the donkey.
Watch the shepherd expertly milk some of his sheep, and have a try yourself! The fresh milk will be heated over a fire, and with plenty of sugar added, you will get the opportunity to taste this sweet drink. Jordanian tea will be brewed on the fire as well because no holiday in Jordan is complete without it.
Say goodbye to the shepherd and his flock before continuing to Petra. Make your holiday in Jordan complete by spending time exploring this immense site. You will enter via the Siq, take in the stunning scene that evolves before you. You will be given a picnic style lunch.
Overnight at your accommodation in Petra.
Day 3 (Lunch included):
Today you will immerse yourself in nature with a hands on farm visit. A short distance outside of Petra lies the village of Jarba, well known by the locals for its rich lands and plentiful ground water. Making it perfect for growing a wide variety of produce.
Depart from your Petra accommodation mid morning, arriving at the farm just in time for a morning snack and a freshly brewed pot of Jordanian tea. Get to know your English speaking host and the farm workers before lending a hand with farm life. It’s a special experience during your holiday in Jordan, showing you how the locals farm.
Your host will prepare you an appetising lunch, which where possible will be made with produce you have helped pick from the farm.
