Exodus Travel – 8-Day Petra and Wadi Rum Trek from $1,365 p.p. twin share
Although this is a non-technical trek, one section will require good balance and a head for heights. The trek is five days from point to point and is low altitude. Throughout the trip, local Bedouin will accompany you and you will be camping as they do, under the stars. Definitely a romantic highlight! The trip will finish with a day visit to the ancient rock city of Petra.

You’ll explore the colonnaded street of Petra, the theatre and the magnificent Treasury before travelling to Wadi Rum and the land of Lawrence of Arabia. Harsh and inhospitable, this raw but spectacular landscape is superb for exploration by jeep and on foot. It's a must-do for any couple seeking a unique addition to their honeymoon or romantic getaway plans.
