Dana to Petra 3 Day Trek

This excellent trek takes us from the Dana Reserve, southwards to the ancient 'Rose-Red City' of Petra. This trek is rapidly gaining a reputation as one of the finest in the Middle East. Designed for those outdoor lovers residing in Jordan and done the fast way over 3 days covering more milage per day. With one night spend at the spectacular Feynan Lodge and one night camping out in the wild (all set up taken care of), this special adventure is a perfect getaway from the hectic city life and a fantastic way to connect with nature, increase your fitness and burn those excess calories. 

 

Is this holiday for you?

On this holiday we will be trekking through a desert world that has been crossed by nomadic people and their livestock for generations. Nowadays, the area is just about accessible by 4WD vehicles and there are rough ‘roads' to camping site that we will use. We will be trekking on scant trails, however, far away from the route taken by our support vehicle. The underfoot conditions will include dry wadis. There are also sections of narrow trail across rocky terrain including some easy scrambling. The tracks and trails we use are generally not difficult. We will walk an average of 20 km per day (7 to 8 hours) with a reasonable amount of ascent and descent. Keeping the fast-paced walking in mind, this will be a challenging trek, a pleasant challenge we hope. Please assess your ability based on these facts.

Jordan Active - multi-activity holiday

With its variety of landscape, wealth of historical sites and welcoming climate (outside of the hot summer months) Jordan is a great place for a multi-activity holiday. This week-long adventure begins with a visit to amazingly well-preserved Roman ruins at Jerash, just north of the capital city of Amman, before traversing the Jordan Valley to take a dip in the ever-so-salty Dead Sea. Next up, we tackle a full day of canyoning in Wadi Mukheries, dropping through a sandstone gorge via small waterfalls and hidden caves, with a final 20 metre abseil. An easy day of cycling then takes us south on country roads between farming villages, with a lunch stop as guests of a family in Mukawir. After hiking in to the amazing rose-red city of Petra via its 'back door', we travel on to Wadi Rum, where we have a camel ride and an exciting scramble up to the Burdah Bridge, a natural rock arch high above the desert sands. This active adventure holiday offers you the chance to get your kicks in Jordan! 

 

Explore International. This is one of our Explore International holidays. Participants on these trips can book through Terhaal or through one of our international partners. This helps us to gather together sufficient numbers of like-minded adventurers to get your holiday up and running quickly. Led by an English-speaking guide, the cosmopolitan nature of these groups can be an important part of the experience!

 

Is this holiday for you?

This is not a long or sustained trekking holiday. It is a series of day-hikes, rides and other activities. You do need to be fit and active to take part. During the hikes we will walk for around 4 to 6 hours and on the approach to the Burdah Bridge in Wadi Rum, there will be some straightfoward scrambling on rock. For the canyoning, no previous experience of this activity is required, but a spirit of adventure is an essential. The biking is very straightforward on hard surfaced roads which are very quiet. At the time of year that you will be visiting Jordan (October through to May) it will not be extremely hot during the day. However, we might encounter day-time temperatures as high as 30 degrees centigrade and sun protection and adequate hydration are important considerations.
