In the early morning the group will be picked up from the hotel in Amman The drive from Amman to the starting point of the trek takes about 2 5 hours time to get to know your fellow hikers, or to have another nap. Our trekking journey starts with hiking through the diverse landscapes of the Dana Biosphere Reserve The reserve includes four distinct ecozones, and is thus accommodating an astonishing diversity of plants, birds, and other animals First, we’ll follow a trail along the mountains overlooking Dana Valley, and then descend into al Khashasha Valley A wilderness campsite awaits us on the outskirts of the valley

Day 2
Well rested, we will leave the campsite in the early morning, and head towards Furon. Today‘s hike is challenging but extremely rewarding We will start ascending through the mountains for approximately an hour before getting a glimpse of the beautiful Sharah Mountains and the wide Wadi Araba Desert. That outstanding view will accompany you all the way to your campsite in Al Furon Enjoy a cup of tea and the great view from the campsite while passing the time until your well earned dinner.

Day 3
On this day, we will start hiking from Furon past Ras Al-Feid towards Ghbour Whedat. Today we will witness astonishing views into the some of the most remote and wildest corners of Jordan.

Contouring the Sharah Mountains, follow a trail of mostly clear Bedouin shepherd paths. The sheer peeks of black mountains overlooking our trail and steep precipitous drops of the canyons below make this day absolutely spectacular.

We will gradually climb up the hills to uncover more of the spectacular views over the desert below. Then, we will proceed to our wilderness campsite in Ghbour Whedat.

Hiking Distance: 17.1Km, Ascent: 750m, Descent: 920m

Day 4
After yesterday’s very remote hike, today while we approach Little Petra, we will see signs of increasing human habitation. Along the way we will pass Bedouin camps, sheep pens, and small agricultural plots.

In this region between Ghbour Whedat and Little Petra we will also pass Nabatean ruins, some of which may include wine and olive presses, aqueducts and other ancient water infrastructures.

Today we will visit Little Petra, believed by archaeologist to be a “suburb” of Petra, and meant to house traders traveling along the silk road connecting Africa to Asia, Europe and Arabia. Touring Little Petra, we will see rock carved facades, houses and other ancient buildings carved into the sandstone canyon.

Hiking Distance: 14Km, Ascent: 610m, Descent: 560m

Day 5
After breakfast it’s time to start your hike. Enter Petra via ‘The Back Door’ avoiding most of the tourists.

Good tracks go pleasantly down Wadi Ghurab amidst sandstone mountains guarding the approaches to Petra. This way follows a Nabataean route out of the valley and skirts round the final mountain on a natural rock terrace which has been ‘improved’ for the safety of walkers. Even so, it still narrows slightly before reaching a hidden plateau high above the impressive chasm of Wadi Siyyagh.

Just beyond, carved into the cliff face, ‘The Monastery’ suddenly comes into view, where there is a Bedouin café for refreshments if you would like.

Nabataean steps then lead down into ancient Petra. Your route then takes you through Wadi Muthlim (weather dependent) to Wadi Musa and your hotel accommodation in Petra.

Overnight in a hotel in Petra.
Hiking Distance: 13.8Km, Ascent: 496m, Descent: 519m

Day 6
Early morning and after breakfast, you will head to visit the Nabatean Red Rose city of Petra, one of the 7 world wonders. You will enter through the “Siq,” a 1km long narrow gorge which is flanked either side by 80m high cliffs! Notice the dazzling colors and formations of the rocks. The world heritage site is massive, and contains hundreds of elaborated rock-cut tombs, a treasury, Roman-style theaters, temples, sacrificial altars and colonnaded streets.

Later on this day we will transfer you to Wadi Rum. Enjoy the wilderness adventure of a 4×4 jeep tour of Wadi Rum, following in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, climbing sand dunes and rock bridges. The jeep tour will allow you to travel around Wadi Rum’s valleys, canyons, dunes and deserts, discover rock inscriptions, majestic views of mountains and landscapes and narrow gorges. Return back to your camp, enjoy the hospitality of the Bedouins.

Day 7
After breakfast, we will proceed to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. Once we arrive, we can enjoy floating in the Dead Sea, one of the world’s great natural experiences.

Floating is the right word for it; with an eye stingily high salt content it is virtually impossible to swim in the viscous waters of a sea that is 415m below ‘sea level’. After floating, trying out the “magical” Dead Sea mud and soaking up some sun, we will head back to the capital.

Drop off in Amman.
