Experience moving sites and celebrated landscapes on a Cosmos Israel & Jordan tour. Travel back in time in Israel, where Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions have dug deep roots.

Explore the port of Jaffa, where biblical stories of Jonah, Solomon, and St. Peter took place. The Israeli city traces its roots to 1800 BC, with mythological tales of Andromeda and Perseus. Today, Jaffa features plenty of art galleries, unique boutiques, and wonderful landmarks.
Visit the archaeological site of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New7Wonders of the World®. Channel your inner “Indy” as you navigate the narrow gorge of the Siq – made famous in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade – and stand in awe in front of the iconic Treasury.
Join an optional excursion to the shores of the Dea Sea to float effortlessly on its famous waters. This salt lake in the Jordan Rift Valley is fed by the Jordan River, with its salty surface lying 430.5 metres below sea level – the lowest land-based shores on Earth.
