Jordan Adventure Holiday itinerary

Day 1  Welcome to Amman

Welcome to Jordan! Arrive at the Queen Alia International Airport in Amman and make your way to your hotel. If your flight arrives early enough, enjoy some free time to explore Amman.

Wear clothes and shoes that can get completely wet and pack your personal items in dry bags. If weather prevents this 5 km hike through Wadi Hidan, it will be replaced with a similar hike. After the hike, travel to the Dana Nature Reserve where you will enjoy a relaxing evening with incredible views.

Day 3 Visit Shobak Castle and bike to Little Petra

Built by Baldwin I in the year 1115, Shobak Castle was surrendered to Salahdin in 1189. Begin your off-road cycling tour here, following dirt roads and tracks all the way to Little Petra. It is considered one of the most epic stages of the Jordan Bike Trail as it follows the contours of the mountains of Dana and Petra. Expect amazing views of the Jordan Valley. A local family from Petra will serve lunch boxes along the way. When you arrive in Little Petra, take time to visit the area before cycling on to your camp for the night, a Bedouin camp which is nearly hidden among the rocks.
