Jordan: Women's Expedition

Join an eight-day women’s expedition in Jordan and discover a new perspective of sisterhood. In this inspiring desert nation, you’ll spend a night in Wadi Rum, learn the art of henna with Bedouin women and float along the Dead Sea. Visit Petra – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – and learn about traditional marriage from a professional matchmaker. Pick up local cooking tips from unsung experts, sit down for afternoon tea with local women and learn their stories and support women-led businesses along the way. On this female-only adventure, travellers are granted access to a side of life seldom seen by tourists while also developing a deeper understanding of Middle Eastern women and their unique traditions. Dive into something new and take the trip of a lifetime.

  • Take a cooking class with a local chef who started her own business to teach people about Jordanian culture through food. Hear her story and taste authentic family recipes.
  • Float in the salty waters of the Dead Sea – once believed to have mystical healing powers and so popular that Cleopatra herself would travel from Egypt to soak and exfoliate in the mineral-rich mud.
  • Experience the majesty and mystery of ancient Petra (one of the Seven Wonders of the World) during a guided tour. The first glimpse of the Treasury from the narrow path of the Siq is something you’ll never forget.
  • Drive through the remarkable desert landscapes of Wadi Rum, then take a look behind closed doors as local Bedouin women join you to share their knowledge and craft of henna application.
