Day 1, Tue, 10.10.2023: Welcome to another world!
Upon your individual arrival in Amman (flights not included), you’ll be greeted with a welcoming “Salaam Alaikum” by our representative and transferred to the hotel. There you’ll have chance to finally meet the other guys and share the excitement of the gay adventures that await you.
Day 2, Wed, 11.10.2023: Rocks, stones, and sculptures as far as the eye can see
Prepare to be dazzled by temples, theatres, and thermal baths at the excavation site of ancient Jerash. You’ll stroll through the ancient Roman town as your guide shares with you the secrets of its architecture, its dramatic history, and fascinating rediscovery. After being surrounded by ancient rocks, you’ll find yourself enjoying stunning panoramic views among the holm oak trees in the Ajloun Forest Reserve. In the evening an Arabian welcome dinner awaits you – complete with a thousand and one delights!
Jordan is an absolute travel hotspot in the Middle East. A journey through this diverse country will transport you to the world of Aladdin and friends. The mix of culture, nature, relaxation, and pure adrenaline offers you 1001 facets that you won’t forget anytime soon.
As one of the most progressive, stable, and secure countries in the Arab world, Jordan maintains peaceful international relations with its neighbours and is not involved in any of the outlying crises, thus making it a holiday oasis in the region.
Same-sex relations were legalised as early as 1951, which makes Jordan extremely progressive in comparison to the rest of the Arab world in this regard. However, no true gay community exists in the country and the topic of homosexuality remains taboo, which is why visitors should be cautious when it comes to public displays of affection.
Jordan is paradise for guys who love to spend time outdoors – and in the great outdoors, the topic of sexuality doesn’t play a role!
Day 3, Thu, 12.10.2023: Off to the Dead Sea
In the morning, the bus will take you to the impressive citadel and Roman theatre in Amman and then continue to the mystical Dead Sea. In Madaba you’ll encounter the legendary Madaba Mosaic Map and learn how routes were planned in ancient times – long before GPS systems. From Mount Nebo, the burial place of Moses, you’ll be greeted with magnificent views of the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, and Jerusalem. After all this gay holiday adventure, your hotel welcomes you in the late afternoon with its own private beach!
Day 4, Fri, 13.10.2023: Canyon adventure
Get ready for some rugged gay adventure today! In the morning, you’ll go for a hike in Wadi Mujib, where depending on the weather, you’ll take the Siq Trail – an unforgettable water hike through a breathtaking gorge. As you wade through the water, swim, and climb rocks, you’ll feel the cool spring water splash on your skin as it forces its way through the towering sandstone walls on either side. In the late morning, you’ll have time to relax before you go off to your legendary photo shoot at the Dead Sea!
Day 5, Sat, 14.10.2023: In the footsteps of the Crusaders
Don’t be fooled by the idyllic backdrop of Kerak Castle with its Crusader past: its corridors are as dark and winding as its history. Your guide will mesmerise you with unbelievable tales of the fascinating people who once occupied this imposing fortification. From the castle viewpoint, you might even catch a glimpse of the Mount of Olives. Afterwards you’ll set off for Wadi Musa where the legendary city of Petra is waiting for you to discover it’s magic.
Day 6, Sun, 15.10.2023: The mystical rock city of Petra
Early in the morning you’ll make your way to the pink city of the Nabataeans. As you pass through a narrow rock corridor in the middle of the desert, you’ll catch your first glimpse of this magical place. Our first highlight is the elaborate Al-Khazneh, the Treasury. But your gay adventure doesn’t stop here – there are temples, tombs, and shrines waiting to be explored. All this bears witness to the fabulous wealth of the city’s former inhabitants – right down to an ancient rooftop spa complete with hot water technology and a 360-degree panoramic view. Back at the hotel, it’s time for a little rest and relaxation!
Day 7, Mon, 16.10.2023: Desert dreaming
Today you’ll explore the fascinating desert labyrinth of Wadi Rum and when the bus can’t go any further, you’ll switch to off-road vehicles. You’ll roll past chiselled rock formations and be inspired by the mesmerising designs left in the sand by one of nature’s most talented artists: the wind! In the afternoon, you’ll have a picnic lunch with the guys and in the evening, you’ll marvel at the glorious desert sunset – the perfect way to end another day of your gay tour!
You’ll be staying in beautiful three- and four-star hotels such as the Ramada Resort on the Dead Sea pictured above, where you’ll be staying for two nights. An unforgettable night awaits you in a fabulous desert camp.
