Revitalising weekend with fossil hunt and a chair massage

Tree in front of the Petra mountains with Revitalising weekend

Now we know that traveling within Jordan is allowed again we would like to invite you to join our Revitalising weekend. (Certainly, it can be a mid-week stay too, as long if you stay at least two nights). As we can imagine that you are longing to break out of your house, escape Amman (or any other city where you are living) and be outside again!

Therefore we thought of some activities for you; a jeep ride to explore the Petra area, a relaxing and energising chair massage and a fossil hunt during a scenic hike. Above all, we take care of all the food moments; breakfast, lunch and dinners.

In addition, there is time to relax in between the activities. Enjoy a wide view from one of the terraces with a coffee. Or stretch your legs by going for a hike in the area. Or put your legs up while you sit on a chair and enjoy the peace and quiet of a garden. For example, with that fantastic book that you always wanted to read.

We composed a weekend|two nights visit to suit your wishes in these first post-pandemic weeks.

Grant yourself with a revitalising stay in B&B Petra Fig Tree Villa. 

First evening

We will welcome you in the late afternoon, early evening. You can drop your luggage in the room and freshen up a bit. Probably there is some time to watch the sunset with a cup of tea and sweets.

Dinner time. We serve a three-course vegetarian menu. With soup, the main dish with a salad and dessert. We serve water during dinner. A cup of coffee or tea after the dinner is included. 

You can spend the evening as you like. Maybe try to count all the stars above the Petra mountains or just enjoy the evening in silence.

The morning of the first full day

After breakfast, we will take you for a surprise jeep tour in the Little Petra area with spectacular views, birds to watch, the spring in Bidebide and some other fun stops.  The tour will take about three hours.

We will have a break at a beautiful spot to have a picnic lunch. 

After the break, we head back to the B&B.

The afternoon of the first full day

In the afternoon, it’s time to spoil yourself by a chair massage. The rest of the afternoon you can relax on one of the terraces around the B&B. 

Bring back your book and completely dive into it, have a little nap or play some games with your children. 

In the evening, we serve a vegetarian three-course dinner. After dinner, you have free time again.

The morning of the second day

After breakfast, we will take you for a short (taxi) ride to the start point of the hike at Al Tobaq hill. If you are into bird watching, you can be lucky to see some interesting birds. Therefore it’s good to bring binoculars if you have them. For sure, you’ll have beautiful views over Petra and the Little Petra area. You can see the colonnaded street with the Great Temple and Qasr al Bint. Of course, from far away! 

Interesting to know is that, more than 200 million years ago, the Tethys Sea flooded the Petra area and other parts of what now is Jordan . We can enjoy a fossil hunt as this is the perfect location. If you bring your children, for sure they’ll enjoy it too.

Back at the B&B, you can enjoy tea or coffee with some sweets. And then it’s time to say goodbye.
