Tour Overview :
The tour starts in Amman, capital of Jordan, there you taste the local culture and history. You visit the Roman Theatre and the citadel, city tour in the old town of Amman. Eat the local dessert "Kunafah". Afternoon descend to Dead Sea and enjoy the curative salty water. Continue after to Dana Nature Reserve, one of the most awe-inspiring sections of a trek across Jordan, this route was recently mentioned by National Geographic as one of the world's best fifteen hikes. The trail descends from the heights of the mountain plateaus to the Araba Valley and climbs back again, crossing several climate zones, diverse ecosystems hidden canyons, and dramatic labyrinths of hills and valleys displaying the full spectrum of the region’s geology. The scenery spans from majestic and epic mountaintops to peaceful, idyllic countryside where new landscapes appear along the way. If the natural attractions aren’t enough, the route ends with the Nabatean masterpiece, Petra.
The city in the rocks holds days' worth of exploration by itself, and the short route the Jordan Trail takes through it is meant only to display a few of its highlights and to provide a base for further exploring, not to fully capture its depth. Few other long-distance trails can boast stages as consistently spectacular as this or end in a place as worthy of a visit as Petra.
