There is quite a bit of walking involved in this trip and also when visiting Jordan's historic sites, especially in Petra and Wadi Rum. A reasonable level of fitness is required. Most of the time there is no shade, so remember to bring a hat, sun protection, and sturdy, comfortable hiking boots or walking shoes.
The distances that you will be trekking vary from 14 kilometres to 20 kilometres over a range terrains, we recommend you consider packing trekking poles for the hikes.
The desert camp in Wadi Rum is basic but incredibly memorable. There are tents and shared western bathroom facilities. While the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night, so remember to bring some warmer layers, especially if visiting outside of the summer months.

The whole itinerary includes a well customised range of historical sights, nice hikes, beautiful evenings under the starlit sky and an excellent trained tour-guide. If you are lucky you get the chance to have dinner at a local families place. If you are used to go hiking (for example in the Alps), the treks aren’t very exhausting. Overall, it was a perfect experience and the group was outstanding!

This trip is such a unique way to get to know a country! There is nothing like approaching the Monastery at Petra after a long morning's hike, or trekking down a shepherd's trail to the Dead Sea. This is definitely do-able for anybody with a reasonable degree of fitness -- just make sure you bring good boots/shoes -- and trekking poles are highly recommended to help with stability and balance.
