Walking holiday in Jordan - Petra and Wadi Rum desert

Itinerary

 

Day 1: Arrival - Queen Alia Airport Amman - Petra

The driver will meet you at the airport and drive you to your three star hotel in Petra. Here you can get to know the other participants or explore the town a bit.

 

Day 2: Petra and camping

Today you will explore Petra, you walk through the mystic Siq until you reach the famous Treasury. From here you continue to walk and discover the beautiful site of Petra. The day ends in Little Petra in the Seven Wonders Camp, where you are invited to enjoy sweet Bedouin Tea and a great traditional meal before going to your private Bedouin tent.

This walking holiday is a 7-day adventure through Jordan. You will be walking in and around Petra, a fascinating historical place and an ancient Nabataean city.

 

Petra is half-built, half-carved into the rock, and is surrounded by mountains riddled with passages and gorges. It is a magical experience to explore this place on foot.

 

From Petra the walk continues in Wadi Rum. This is a protected area, a UNESCO's world heritage site in the South of Jordan. This dramatic desert offers mountains of sandstone and granite, wide sandy valleys, narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains.

 

Bedouin tribes still live among the mountains of Wadi Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape. Many other cultures have lived in Wadi Rum leaving behind rock paintings.

 

This is a week of experiencing a different culture, feeling the magic of the desert and the hospitality of the Beduins. Watch the most amazing starry skies and listen to the deafening sound of silence.

Discover the hidden gems of the red rose city of Petra on foot, stay with the Bedouins and walk through the magical Wadi Rum desert

Day 3: Little Petra to Petra

The entrance into Petra will be via the ‘backroad’, a narrow path that hugs the mountains, with absolutely stunning views over the rugged mountains.

Tonight you are invited at a local family's house to enjoy a traditional Jordanian meal.

 

Day 4: Wadi Rum

When you arrive at the entrance into Wadi Rum, a 4x4 will take you to the campsite where you can drop off your luggage before continuing with your walking holiday The desert offers its own sights to see: Nabataean inscriptions, canyons, sanddunes and rockbridges.
