“HIKE TO PETRA & THE LAND OF LAWRENCE OF ARABIA”
▪ The Inca Trail of the Middle East
▪ Walk the streets of ancient Petra
▪ Rich culture & dramatic landscapes
▪ Swim in the Dead Sea
Jordan's wilderness is astonishing and the best way to fully appreciate this biblical land is on foot. The route from Dana to Petra is considered to be one of the finest multi-day hikes in the Middle East. With our experienced local guide and Bedouin support crew we trek from Dana Nature Reserve through remote canyons and alongside near-vertical gorges, enjoying wilderness camping in breathtaking wadis (or oases). The trek has been dubbed the "Inca Trail of the Middle East" and your first view of Petra's Monastery evokes similar feelings of awe when arriving on foot at one of the world's greatest wonders. We explore the streets of Petra, the theatre and the magnificent Treasury before traveling to Wadi Rum and the land of Lawrence of Arabia. Harsh and inhospitable, this raw but spectacular landscape is superb for exploration by jeep and on foot. We climb to the famous rock arch at Burdah Bridge and trek through the rugged Rakebak Canyon before returning to Amman via the Red Sea coast, with a swim in the Dead Sea to round off this amazing adventure.
