Venture into this wondrous area of the world to find some of the holiest sites, ancient practices and amazing experiences accessible only on foot and with the will to explore. These are the top TRIPS by Culture Trip that’ll have you falling in love with Northern Africa and the Middle East.
1 . The Holy Land: See Jerusalem Through the Eyes of Locals

Jerusalem: a land of reverence where millions have worshipped for thousands of years. Who better to lead you through the Holy Land than a local, who both appreciates the sites for their religious significance and as their homeland? Discover this cultural crossroads on an immersive seven-day trip, walking side-by-side with one Jewish and one Arab guide. From Bethlehem to the Dead Sea, you’ll uncover the beautiful yet bruised history of this area and a balanced view of the Israel-Palestine conflict.

2 . Beyond Petra: Discovering Jordan’s Rugged Side

Jordan will have you seeing red – in the most positive way possible. This rugged landscape is yours to explore on a challenging nine-day journey. You’ll discover new hues as you hike the rust-coloured Wadi Ghurab mountains, snorkel the depths of the Red Sea and sip lush red wine in Amman’s oldest winery. Petra and Little Petra will expand your palette further. The only time you’ll miss a stroke of red is when gazing at the night sky – through rose-tinted glasses, of course.

4 . Pyramids, Temples and the Nile: the Ultimate Egypt Experience

A journey to Egypt offers the perfect opportunity to step back in time this August.
