See Off the Winter Blues in the Red Sea


With even the most ardent Anglophile often finding the long, dark days of the UK winter a challenge, this new itinerary offers an appealing alternative to hibernation.

Staying at a five-star Mövenpick resort hotel in Aqaba, enjoy optional excursions to Petra and Wadi Rum, jump on-board the semi-submersible ‘Yellow Submarine’ for the chance to view the Red Sea’s marine life and coral reserve up close, or simply relax and enjoy an indulgent escape.

Departing 12 & 26 January, 9 & 16 February and 2 March, Jordan’s Red Sea costs from £695 pp (two sharing), including direct flights (Gatwick), visa procurement, transfers, seven nights’ B&B, and the services of guides and local representatives.
