Event Description

Experience unique landscapes in one of the friendliest countries in the world!

This challenging and adventurous trek takes you through jaw-dropping landscapes, endig at the impressive rock-hewn facades of Petra’s red canyons – one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Starting at Dana, you’ll follow ancient Bedouin paths for 100 spectacular, vista-packed kilometres of the Jordan Trail. From gentle hills, wadis and arid desert, you’ll cross the dramatic mountains, sandstone canyons and wild-sculpted escarpments of Jordan’s Rift Valley.

Our trek ends with a beautiful, little-used ascent to the ‘back door’ of Petra, the ancient Red-Rose City of the Nabateans, which we have time to explore. A day relaxing at the Dead Sea rounds off this unforgettable adventure.
