Jordan Multisport

Jordan is famed for its ancient past but its present is pretty darn compelling, too. The natural and man-made wonders of Petra and Wadi Rum have been drawing travellers here for ages, but the rough-hewn grandeur of Jordan has remained a secret known only to the boldest of thrill-seekers. Trek the rocky hills to isolated villages along the trails near Ajloun, hike down canyons towards the Dead Sea, and discover the Dana Biosphere Reserve. See for yourself why Jordan is a secret we just couldnt keep to ourselves any longer.

Day 2: Amman/‘Ajlūn (1B, 1L, 1D)

After breakfast, head north out of Amman to the lesser known region of Ajloun. The most common image of Jordan is that of an arid land covered in desert. Enjoy a short trek in Ajloun Nature Reserve. Transfer up to Ajloun passing through areas surrounded by woodland, olive groves, and strong oak trees. A hidden gem in Jordan, the area's natural beauty is impressive.

Included Activities:
Ajloun Nature Reserve Hike

Transport:
Private Vehicle (2.00 hour(s))

03

Day 3: ‘Ajlūn/Dead Sea (1B, 1D)

Begin today with a short bus ride to Wadi Mujib, and spend the morning hiking, abseiling, climbing, and walking down to the Dead Sea.

From Wadi Mujib, continue the short distance to the Dead Sea. There is access to the beach from here. Enjoy time to bathe in the salty waters or cover yourself in mud from the sea that supposedly has healing powers.

In the winter (November-March) a dry trail is available called the Ibex Trail (3-4 hrs), and in the summer (April-October) visitors can hike a wet trail called Mujib Canyon Trail (4 hrs). These trails both offer spectacular scenery surrounded with very different conditions for canyoneering.

Overnight at the Dead Sea.

Another of Jordan's hidden gems, the Dana Nature Reserve is an oasis among the golden expanse of the desert. Take a guided walk through the reserve, following the Feathers Canyon Trail, which leads past Nabatean tombs to a breathtaking siq. Dana is a diverse environment containing a wide variety of plant life, including many that are endemic to the reserve. There are also several endangered species here to keep an eye out for.

From Dana, transfer to Petra to spend the night.

Day 5: Petra (1B)

Take the next two days to explore the site of Petra. First, head over to Al Beidha, also known as Little Petra. This site is literally hidden away in a mountain and is a miniature version of Petra, containing a number of notable tombs. It offers a glimpse of Petra without the crowds.

After exploring this site, make the short trek over to Petra itself. The trail is approx 5km (3.1 mi) between the sites. The excitement builds when first glimpsing the Monastery from a vantage point high above the ruins of Petra. The rest of the day is free to explore the site, before heading back through the siq to the hotel.

Approx travel times: Wadi Rum to Amman, 3.5 hrs

Included Activities:
Siq al-Barid (Little Petra) Visit
Petra Guided Tour

06

Day 6: Petra/Wadi Rum (1B, 1D)

After breakfast, have the morning free to visit Petra again. The site is large, but you can set your own pace depending on the weather and the interests of the group.

After the Nabatean ruins, drive to Wadi Rum, a vast, silent landscape of ancient riverbeds and the largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes. There may be time this afternoon for a 4x4 trip into the desert.

On arrival, head to a comfortable tented camp at Dissah Oasis in Wadi Rum Desert. Enjoy a traditional meal for dinner and learn more about this ancient culture. Be sure to keep a look out at the night sky; the absence of city lights means that the opportunities for star gazing are really impressive.

Included Activities:
4x4 Desert Trip
Overnight in Tented Camp

Transport:
Private Vehicle (1.50 hour(s))

Day 7: Wadi Rum/Amman (1B)

Wake up in the desert in the morning. After breakfast there is time for an optional trek through the desert. Setting off from the camp, head to Khazaly Canyon and cross the Little Bridge and Lawrence Spring before returning to camp. In the afternoon there is time to relax at the campsite.

In the evening, return to Amman.
