The Dead Sea is one of the most incredible places in the world. It is known for the Biblical story of the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah, which were destroyed by fire and brimstone. The Dead Sea speaks for itself: there are no living fish. It is by far one of Jordan's most impressive and spectacular places to visit. Its calm, shining water glowing from the scorching sun above, is known for the concentration of salt and minerals which makes it a therapeutic as well as a unique swimming experience not to be missed. Enjoy some free time to swim before returning to your hotel in Amman.Please note: The temperature drops down quickly at Wadi Rum during the night , and it becomes very cold to freezing during winter time ( December & January), be aware that there is no heating on the tents but there is enough blankets, so you could choose the private option to make changes for the night stay to more luxurious camps ( Group Tours will always be using the same camp with no heating on the tens - this can not be changed). NB: Entry Fees and tour guides are NOT included. Duration: 12 hoursNo meals included on this day.No accommodation included on this day.
