Under the Stars
Under the Stars

This tour will be in the Wadi Araba desert and Wadi Rum desert. Through these two destinations we will visit the most important destination in Jordan: Petra. Wadi Arabah begins at the southern end of the Dead Sea and extends southward for 112 miles to the Gulf of Aqabah. Along the length of the centre of Wadi Araba runs the boundary between the modern states of Israel and Jordan. It is an arid depression from six to twelve miles wide -- in reality a continuation of the Great Rift Valley. This section has been known from ancient Biblical times as the Arabah. Beginning at 1292ft below sea level, the valley gradually ascends as it goes southward for 67 miles to a watershed, which rises 660ft above sea level. From here it quickly descends until 45 miles further southward it reaches the Gulf of Aqabah at Ezion Geber. Surface explorations along with minor digs carried on by Doctor Nelson Glueck revealed a number of ruined villages and many copper and silver mines from which ore was dug in the time of Solomon (900-1000 B.C.) and during the time of the Nabateans (300 BC to AD 100).

Walks and Treks in Jordan
Walks and Treks in Jordan

Jordan is blessed with a wide range of climates, resulting in an unusually large number of different habitats and great biological diversity for a country of its size. However, many of these are extremely fragile, and can be easily disrupted. There are substantial local climatic variations, largely due to the extensive differential in heights from the lowest point at the Dead Sea, 1,320 feet below sea level, to high mountain tops at almost 6,000 feet

Walks around Petra
Walks around Petra

In earlier times, travel was a much slower process, often on foot and taking years to complete, entailing bold steps into the unknown and the opportunity, indeed necessity, of assimilating more of the local culture and language than is the case with the traveller today. The Swiss explorer Jean Louis Burckhardt was commissioned by the 'Association for Promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa' to discover the source of the Niger. After learning Arabic at Cambridge he travelled first to Syria, where after adopting the name, clothing and manners of 'Ibrahim ibn Abdullah', undertook preparatory journeys of exploration in Syria and Lebanon. En route to Cairo (and in what is now present day Jordan) he visited Jerash, Amman and Kerak and heard stories of an ancient 'lost' city in the valley of Wadi Musa. On the pretext of making a sacrifice at the Tomb of Aaron (Jebel Harun) he subsequently 're-discovered' what he (correctly) thought to be the remains of the capital of Arabia Petraea. Unlike many 'Wonders of the World', Petra is a complete city hidden by mountainous terrain where every path and vantage point brings a new discovery or perspective. An equally spectacular contrast is provided by the desert landscapes of Wadi Rum featured in David Lean's film 'Lawrence of Arabia'. In this spirit, but not of course to the same extent, we propose a week's exploration for experienced walkers along lesser known and less well-used paths accompanied by an experienced local guide.

Culture of Jordan
Culture of Jordan

From Lawrence of Arabia to modern times, Jordan continues to offer a unique majesty. This tour is a journey into history and culture including face-to-face meetings with the people who proudly call themselves Jordanians. Jordan is a small country, yet its richness makes it the envy of many larger ones. From Jerash to Petra operates on daily departures making combinations with many of our other programs in the region very convenient. From rich antiquity to desert life, this is the best way to see and experience the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

The Wisdom Trail
The Wisdom Trail

‘Rum the magnificent… vast, echoing and Godlike… a processional way greater than imagination… the crimson sunset burned on its stupendous cliffs and slanted ladders of hazy fire down its walled avenue…’ Those were the words used by Lawrence of Arabia to describe the timeless, silent and vast place of Wadi Rum. And not without reason. Wadi Rum is one of the most impressive places of Jordan, a place where you can dwell for days without meeting anybody besides maybe a Bedouin family sitting in its goat’s wool tent in the rose-red desert sand. And sometimes the odd family of camels. Apart from that you are surrounded by sky-high cliffs of rose-red sandstone rock. What better way is there to experience this natural beauty than the way people have been doing this for centuries? From the Stone Age on, people have been crossing Wadi Rum on bare feet, and sometimes on camel back. Our 11-day wisdom trail offers you a unique chance to leave all the stress of everyday western life behind you and find peace and quietness once again. Imagine yourself being a spice merchant, travelling through the desert to your next trading post. Experience the friendly hospitality of the Huweitat and the Mzanah, the Bedouin tribes who have lived in Wadi Rum for centuries. Enjoy the taste of their traditional Arabic meals. And read the inscriptions left behind as silent evidence of cultures gone. “Whoever walks the desert is no longer the person he was.”

A Tale of Two Canyons
A Tale of Two Canyons

If you like adventure and loads of water, this 9-day canyon adventure is your ideal tour. This opportunity is available for a selected number of travellers only, as the entrance to the canyons is limited. The canyons of Wadi Zarqa and Wadi ibn Hammad are indisputably the most beautiful nature spots of Jordan. Hiking through the canyons requires not only a good physical condition, but also the need to be challenged by difficult circumstances. This program can also be booked during the very hot summer since you will always be close to water. Apart from the canyons there will be a visit to the natural springs of Hammamat Ma’in, the Dead Sea and the Red Sea. This tour combines adventure with a visit of the historical highlights of Jordan.
