About the Jordan Trek 2021

The trek

We have partnered with the leading challenge organiser Discover Adventure, to bring you the Jordan Trek. Discover Adventure has created a fantastic itinerary that brings together the best of Jordan's history, landscape and people. The fully guided walk will be with a group of around 20 fellow trekkers.

Day one: An afternoon of acclimatising to the heat and landscape of the desert floor (3 hours/6-7 km).

Day two-four: Full days of trekking that take in the beauty of the changing landscape, crossing rough stony desert, dried river beds and sand dunes with dramatic mountain backdrops. You will then be heading into the mountains on ancient paths and tracks, canyons and plateaus (8-9 hours/18km each day).

Day five: The route crosses now familar landscapes, and guides you towards Little Petra,  with ruins of rock-hewn temples and sandstone formations over 9,000 years old (8 hours / 16km).

Day six: Take the rarely used route to Petra, and enjoy sights of the ancient city (7 hours/18km)


EXTRAS 

The trek is six days long but the full itinerary is nine days long and includes flights from London to Amman, as well as a free day at the coast of the Dead Sea.
