We are delighted to be launching a fabulous 5 day challenge trek in the magnificent Wadi Rum, Jordan.
Journey over 100km through ancient shepherd paths and sand dunes, as you weave your way west across desert wadis and ascend Jordan's highest mountain Um Dami. As your feet take you across exceptional scenery, you can embrace the tranquillity of rarely explored paths, joined only by the company of the Trek leaders and your fellow explorers.
At the end of the trek, we will visit the magical abandoned kingdom of Petra which dates to around 300 B.C, formally the capital of the Nabatean kingdom. Explore temples and tombs that are carved into the rockface as you bask in the glorious pink hue of the sandstone cliffs, commonly referred to as the 'Rose City'.
Trekking between 22 – 25km per day in the majestic Wadi Rum (a World Heritage site)
Finding dramatic, hidden desert scenery, including sandstone domes, rock formations, and granite and basalt striated mountains.
Experiencing the Bedouin culture and cuisine, as you gather around a campfire every night and wild camp beneath unspoilt desert skies.
Summiting Um Dami, Jordan’s highest mountain you will take in views across the Wadi Rum and over to the Red Sea and south into Saudi Arabia.
Exploring the ancient city of Petra.
