Trek around Jordan and discover Amman, Petra and Wadi Rum
Experience the beauty and culture of Jordan on this exhilarating trekking adventure. Wander the streets of modern Amman, wind your way through breathtaking shepherd's paths in Mukair, float in the famously salty Dead Sea, get off the beaten track around ancient Petra, be dazzled by the famous Treasury building, join the Bedouins for a magical desert adventure, and marvel at Byzantine mosaics in Madaba. This is Jordan at its active, action-packed best.
Hike the lesser known back-road into Petra and spend a day exploring this awe-inspiring ancient treasure. Glimpsing the Treasury for the first time is a moment you won't forget
Experience the best weightlessness this side of outer space with an effortless float in the super-salty waters of the Dead Sea
Be dazzled by panoramic views across the ocean and the West Bank as you make your way down the scenic shepherd's trail of Mukawir
Wadi Rum is a world unto itself. Hop in a jeep and experience its twisted rock scenery and watch the sun set on this rugged moonscape
The semi-nomadic Bedouins are renowned for their hospitality, so you're in for a treat. Learn about their semi-nomadic culture over an earthen oven-cooked feast before sleeping under the stars
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 perfect way to see the country. The emphasis on hiking gives you another way of seeing the country, a way in which many tourists won't see. Petra is utterly stunning but the trails that surround it are relatively unknown. The accommodation and activities gives wonderful variety and all seem to be ordered in a very well thought out way i.e staying in a lovely 4*+ resort after the biggest hike of the trip and the option of going on a boat trip during the stay in the camp in the desert. Can't recommend Jordan enough and this tour is a perfect way of seeing it from a different and all encompassing angle.

I am usually a solo traveler but tried out a tour for the first time with Intrepid. Now I'm a believer - tours make knowledge, closeness to locals, and fantastic connections so simple while not having to worry about safety or logistics. I'll be on another tour someday for sure.
