Overview

This adventure captures Jordan’s desert landscapes at its best and culminates with getting off the beaten track in the famous ancient city of Petra.

Jordan has welcomed travellers for centuries from camel caravans to intrepid adventurers. With its World Heritage Sites, friendly people and awe-inspiring desert landscapes, this country is a trekkers paradise.

You’ll experience epic landscapes of weathered sandstone and reddened dunes, encompassed by a salt sea at the lowest point on earth. Trek past canyons flowing with seasonal water, oases of palm trees and explosions of springtime flowers scattered across arid hills. Your route winds its way along dramatic mountains, through spectacular wadi’s and vast ever-changing desert landscapes. You’ll enjoy delicious camp meals and a good night’s rest under a blanket of stars.

Finishing in Petra, the ancient Nabataean city framed by Jordan’s sandstone escarpments. Petra is the jewel in the crown of the country’s many antiquities. With sites flung over a vast rocky landscape and a mood that changes with the shifting light as the sun moves across the sky, this is a highlight that rewards you as a long distance trekker.

Plus there’s time to relax with an effortless dip in the Dead Sea or cool off in your hotel swimming pool before enjoying a delicious celebration meal on your last night in Jordan.

DAY 7

Trek to Petra and free afternoon to explore

Following your last breakfast in the desert you will continue your trek to Petra. You will enter little Petra reserve and negotiate narrow paths clinging to the side of deep canyons. You will have a whole day to enjoy Petra including a halfway guided tour of the rose-red city which is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Petra was carved into the Sharah Mountains by the industrious Nabataeans, who grew rich through their control of the frankincense trade routes through Arabia. Petra fell into obscurity about a thousand years ago, while its existence and location, were kept a closely guarded secret by the local Bedouin, until 1812 when the Swiss explorer John Louis Burckhardt tricked his way into the site.

Your guided tour of this unique and unforgettable site starts with a walk through the Siq, the narrow and winding fissure between towering cliffs, which you will exit through a tiny cleft to be confronted by the awe-inspiring splendour of the Treasury monument, Petra’s most elaborate ruin, sculpted into the sandstone rock. Local legend has it that this tomb once stored the gifts of the Queen of Sheba to Solomon. You will continue to explore the royal tombs, a roman theatre and the colonnaded street to name but a few of the astounding attractions on view. Walking up the 800 steps you will be greeted with an amazing view of the vast and impressive Monastery (Ed Deir) and extending to more views over the whole area.

The afternoon is free for you to further explore one of the most impressive and exciting sites of ancient history anywhere in the world. One option is that you can walk up to the High Place (Attuf Ridge), once the venue for sacrificial offerings, which gives wonderful views over the Petra Basin and out towards Jebel Harun and Wadi Sabra.

Outside of this period it can be very hot, with temperatures, rising to 40°C in July and August. In October and in April, the maximum daytime temperature is likely to be in the high twenties or low thirties °C, falling as low as 10°C at night. Heading into November the temperatures begin to cool and by December/January, typical daytime maximum temperatures are around 12 – 15 °C falling as low as 5°C at night.

Ramadan 2021 and 2022

In 2021, the important month of Ramadan will be in progress from 12th April – 11th May and in 2022, from 2nd April – 1st May. Eid ul-Fitr festival will be held directly at its conclusion for 3 – 4 days.

Ramadan is a festival of sacrifice where the devout refrain from eating or drinking during daylight hours. During Ramadan, business hours are shortened, including opening hours at some tourist attractions. Alcohol is not permitted during daylight hours and many restaurants will be closed.

While you should expect some delays and inconveniences during this period, the month is a fantastic opportunity to travel in a Muslim country and witness this unique period, particularly the nightly celebrations when the sun sets and the fast is broken. Please note that although the Eid ul-Fitr festival can also be a fascinating time to travel it’s a period of national holiday. Most government offices and businesses will be closed and some tourist site opening hours may be affected.

Accommodation

Hotels (3 nights twin/triple share rooms) and desert camp (5 nights)

You will spend 3 nights in hotels. The hotels for Amman and Petra are 3-star hotels and for your final night at the Dead Sea you will stay in a 4-star hotel with a swimming pool. All rooms are on a twin share basis and have ensuite facilities. Some hotels have more facilities than others however it is always good to keep in mind that the star rating in Jordan is quite different to what you may expect at home.  Sometimes we may use less centrally located hotels in the interests of comfort.

Accommodation in Petra is limited and demands on the infrastructure are high; this creates occasional problems with hot water and plumbing for all hotels.  In general, the hotels in Petra are of an older style and more basic in comparison with the rest of Jordan. 

Single room supplements are available for this trip for the hotel stays however we are unable to guarantee availability. Please enquire at the time of booking for details and up-to-date prices.

Traditional Bedouin tents will be set up at your campsite and smaller tents are provided for sleeping. You are also welcome to sleep out under the stars as well. Each campsite will be set up prior to your arrival. Whilst camping please be aware that although some campsites have plumbed toilets and running water, there are no showers and facilities are basic, however this is part of the experience and a great opportunity to switch off from the digital world. The campsites also provide you with the chance to immerse yourself in the Bedouin culture and lifestyle.

Food & drink

Food

The food provided is plentiful, often local in style and freshly-cooked, and will give you plenty of energy. Lunch will varying from a buffet-style lunch-stop to packed lunches. Dinners are generally eaten in camp or at the hotel, depending on accommodation. In some regions there may be less variety than you are used to, and in others fresh meat or produce can be harder to come by.

Any meals not included are listed in the itinerary and are generally on travel days or where there is access to local restaurants, giving you the opportunity to explore and try other culinary experiences and support local businesses! There is always something to suit different budgets.

Being vegetarian or having other dietary requirements is not usually a problem provided you let us know well in advance. Please do not expect as greater variety as you would have at home – at times you will be in very rural or remote areas and among people of a different culture who may not understand your requirements, however willing they are to help.

If you know there are plenty of foods you cannot eat we strongly recommend you bring extra snacks from home so you can top up your energy supply. Please feel free to speak to us if you have any further queries or questions.

Water

It is not recommended to drink untreated water from the taps. Whilst trekking, water is supplied to fill up your individual bottles. This will be boiled, filtered or provided in large jerry cans or 5 litre bottles. Additionally you should take purification tablets or a filter bottle (such as your free Adventurous Ewe Water-To-Go bottle which you will receive on departure) to treat your water when in towns or where water is not supplied. We do not encourage the purchasing of single use plastic bottles.

Now more than ever our commitment to maintain our support of one of the leading global climate change charity, Cool Earth is of utmost importance. To do this we’ll continue to contribute a % from every booking to Cool Earth. It’s time that we all live in a more responsible world.

This means that not only will you have a fabewelous experience when you travel with Adventurous Ewe, you can do so whilst taking pride in knowing that you are helping support the work of this fantastic environmental charity.
