The Hiking Tour

8 days - from £1260 per person

Jordan is an absolute paradise for those who love walking, and our Hiking Tour is specially designed to ensure you experience the best sights and scenery that the country has to offer. You’ll get to see all the popular locations, such as Petra and Amman, and then step off the beaten track into the majestic desert landscapes of the Wadi Rum. You’ll spend your days hiking through the spectacular red sands, experiencing everything the desert has to offer, and the evenings by a campfire as you eat and socialise with local Bedouin people. It’s a hiking experience that we guarantee will stay with you long after your trip, and one you’ll be telling stories about for many years to come.
