JEWELS OF JORDAN

Hiking the spectacular landscapes of an ancient kingdom

Picture a vast desert as far as the eye can see under a sky as blue as the deepest ocean. A land where Bedouins roam and beauty is found in the most unexpected places. Cross the wild sands and desert canyons only to stumble across the lost city of Petra, carefully carved into pink sandstone cliffs. Float without a care in the Dead Sea and from your desert camp at Wadi Rum, gaze up into the night sky at the map of stars above your head.

Jordan is a hospitable, majestic and captivating country. We’ll explore the capital Amman, with its colourful bazaars, ancient citadel and museums, and visit the best preserved Roman city in the Near East at Jerash, with its spectacular temples and forum.

We will take a dramatic walk from the hot springs at Ibn Hammad, en route to our campsite at Dana, and walk to a spectacular Eco lodge at Feynan. We’ll explore the spectacular canyon and sand dunes of Wadi Rum, enjoying the quiet and colour of the desert, and fully explore the Red Rose city of Petra, set deep inside the narrow gorge with its walls rising two hundred metres from the desert floor. Petra is truly a special place, with a history that dates back over 2,000 years and was once the crossroads of the trade routes between east and west.

En route to Madeba, we’ll see the mighty crusader castles at Shobak and Kerak and swim (or float!) in the Dead Sea, and visit Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land. At Madeba, we’ll see the ancient mosaic map of the Holyland. This is a journey through history, seeing and experiencing a fascinating country at its best.




WALKING GRADES


Full day walks with moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there may be some steep and rough ground. Walks will last up to 6 hours and could involve as much as 750m of ascent and descent. Some walks will be less demanding but equally rewarding.

  • Accommodation

    Amman (3), Dana (1), Feynan (1), Wadi Rum (1), Petra (4), Madeba (2). We stay in twin bedded and single rooms throughout the holiday. The majority of our accommodation is hotel stays, where rooms are en suite and have the usual facilities including telephones and televisions. One hotel that deserves a special mention is the Feynan Eco Lodge. Set in the heart of the Dana Reserve, the solar powered lodge offers the most developed eco experience in Jordan made possible, in part, by the Jordanian Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature.

    Sole Occupancy Supplement £460 - £475

    Faynan Eco Lodge

    The majority of our accommodation is in hotel stays where rooms are en-suite twin bedded and single rooms and have the usual facilities including telephones and TVs. 

    One hotel that deserves a special mention is the Feynan Eco Lodge. Set in the heart of the Dana Biosphere Reserve, the solar powered lodge offers the most developed eco experience in Jordan made possible, in part, by the Jordanian Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature, and a real chance to disconnect from the modern world. 

    The hotel, while simple in style and facilities, offers warm Bedouin hospitality and where possible locally sourced excellent vegetarian food, with many traditional Jordanian specialities. Enjoy being close to the mountainous landscape whilst unwinding in the tranquil courtyards and terraces or resting in your candlelit en-suite room. There is a lot on offer at the lodge to learn about the local culture and environment, such as star gazing on the roof terrace. As it is an eco-lodge the rooms have no electricity points, but you can recharge at the lobby where free internet is also available.

    “Feynan, a shining star among the green lodges worldwide.” – Forbes magazine.

    At Wadi Rum we stay at a Bedouin desert Camp offering a “back to nature” experience. The tented accommodation with dinner that has been baked in the ground offers a wonderfully special and authentic experience. For more information please see the Holiday Information sheet.
