Tour Itinerary

Welcome to the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. The airport is a 30-minute drive to the capital city of Amman. Today is arrival day and for those arriving in time, this is a good opportunity to discover the beauty of the capital Amman and to try the delightful Jordanian food available in the numerous restaurants and cafes across the city.

An early breakfast this morning ready for a prompt departure to Madaba - a town with a strong Christian heritage and aptly dubbed the 'City of Mosaics'. Around 90 minutes from the capital, Madaba is home to hundreds of Byzantine-era mosaics, the most famous of these is the 6th century map of Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Created with two million pieces of vividly coloured local stone, it is believed to be the oldest surviving map of the Holy Land.

Continuing our journey for another 20 minutes, we will arrive at Mount Nebo, referenced in the Old Testament as the place that Moses once stood to look over the Promised Land. This sacred location is important to many devoted pilgrims and on a clear day offers views out across the Dead Sea, Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

Later this morning we carry on travelling south, just as traders, armies and pilgrims have done before us, along the impressive 5,000-year-old King's Highway to Kerak. Imposingly situated on a rocky outcrop next to the road and containing a maze of stone-vaulted halls and passageways, this ancient Crusader stronghold is the most famous among a chain of fortresses built for the Holy War against Islam.

Our packed day of sightseeing ends with a short drive to Petra - without doubt Jordan's most valuable treasure. We can look forward to a couple of days spent here to really get under the skin of this awe-inspiring site. If your tour started on a Saturday, we arrive in time to take an optional candlelight tour of the ancient city. Abandoned centuries ago, this other-worldly place is enhanced by the play of light and shadow to create an altogether magical setting.

Today's walk descends from the Mediterranean climate(1200m) above the sea level to 100m above sea level.  Throughout this 16K walk, you will hike in a natural open flora museum. Wadi Dana is the most important geological aspect in the Dana nature reserve. Its great canyon joins the rift valley through the Feynan desert (mentioned in the Bible as Fyenon). This nature dates back for thousands of years as Feynan is the oldest sight for copper mining (4600 BC). It’s a very colourful day where you come across Bedouin families who still practice this mystical lifestyle and where you can see their scattered goat herds.

At the end of the walk, you visit the ancient copper mining sights (1st & 2nd century AD) (Roman Paganism era).  This walk triggers your thoughts and emotions about history and nature.
* Lunch on this day is under one of the old pistachio trees with a cup of tea prepared on wood fire.

* This night you'll be surrounded by the heart of the nature in the neighbourhood of Bedouins tribes (wilderness camp)   


Into the foot of the mountains, today’s route will ascend steeply across rocks and small boulders through a twisty track, going high into the mountain. This section is challenging. We are rewarded with stunning views west into Wadi Araba. We will continue up over a high saddle, before descending to the river valley of Wadi Alforn following the goat track.

* After breakfast we pack our luggage and drop them off on the Jeep.
* Take our water and the packed lunch 
* Hiking boots are needed for today

* Difficulty: Moderate to difficult

On our last day of hiking, we're going to start the day from the campsite crossing by the oldest village known to man (9500BC neolithic period of the stone age). During this day we’re going to enter Petra from the backdoor where there are fewer people throughout the beautiful cliffs of the western part of Jordan. The first Nabatean's carved monument we're going to see is the Monastery and we will continue through the Cardo to reach the most famous façade of Petra (Treasury) and finally pass through the twisty natural gorge to end up at the visitor centre of Petra. 

* Check in at hotel – 3* 
* Free evening for dinner 
* A chance to visit the Turkish Haman (massage/spa)


For those who want to sleep longer, we will depart at 11am for Wadi-Rum. Alternatively, you could take the opportunity to have a wander around Wadi Musa.  

Wadi Rum is a massive desert in the southern part of Jordan and totally unique among the rest of deserts around the world. This part of the desert was home for many of the previous civilizations. Wadi Rum is also known as the Moon Valley because of the spectacular colourful sand dunes and huge rock formations that compare to the landscape of the moon itself.  The clear night skies give you an opportunity to do some amazing star gazing.

Today we're going to discover this gorgeous desert that comes after a 2hr drive from Petra and 70K from the only seaport city in Jordan, Al- Aqaba. We will arrive in Wadi Rum by 1:00pm, check in to our campsite and have our welcome drink with our hosts. 

Late afternoon is a 2hr Jeep tour (Safari) to discover the beauty of the desert and to see the textures of the nature. Wadi Rum has more than 20,000 inscriptions which have been documented tracing back through history over 12000 years. This is truly a place steeped in ancient history.
* Packed Lunch and dinner are included
* Two hours Safari
* Overnight: private facilities campsite 


This morning we depart Wadi-Rum and travel for around 4hrs to the Dead Sea. Officially the lowest point on the Earth's surface, this unique water body has an amazingly high salt content (33%) which means that no animal life survives, and it is almost impossible to sink. The experience of floating naturally is unique and relaxing on the calm sea. We'll spend a couple of hours this afternoon at a tourist beach, where food and drink can be purchased, and we have use of showers facilities.

Finally, we drive on to Amman and spend our last night in the bustling capital with free time to do some last-minute shopping and sightseeing. To mark the end of your trip, you may choose to enjoy a traditional or cosmopolitan meal, washed down with some excellent Jordanian wine, in one of the capital's many restaurants.

Tour Overview :

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 in 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.

 Tips for sustainable travel on this trip


  • Leave no trace: We do all we can to ensure we leave no litters behind in the wild and beautiful places we visit. If there are no recycling facilities in-country, we’d ask you to consider bringing recyclable materials home with you.
  • Plastic waste reduction: Please bring your own re-usable water bottle on this trip; filtered water will be provided where tap water is not drinkable.
  • Cultural respect:
    • Some Jordanians especially women and the elderly object to being photographed so please ask first.
    • Jordanians are very proud of their country and can be offended if you take pictures of anything ‘negative’ or suggestive of poverty. Photography in military zones and strategic areas like public buildings is prohibited.
    • Handshaking is only between members of the same sex.
    • It's polite to use only your right hand when eating something without cutlery and when handing money and small objects to someone else.
    • It is common practice to remove one’s shoes before entering a mosque or someone’s home and you should tuck them under if sitting on the floor. It is respectful for women to cover their heads with a scarf when entering a mosque. Please note many mosques are not open for tourist visits.
    • Generally men’s and women’s clothing should cover shoulders and be on or below the knee.
    • During the holy month of Ramadan Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, and smoking during daylight hours. Even chewing gum is considered haram. (forbidden). Although foreigners are not expected to follow these practices it is respectful to be discrete and not eat, drink, or smoke in general public.
    • Making the effort to fit in is invariably appreciated so being aware of these aspects of cultural respect will assist you during your travels in Jordan.
