The challenge

  • Explore the culture of Amman and enjoy the views of the promised land from Mount Nebo
  • Experience floating in the iconic Dead Sea
  • Trek along a breathtaking section of the Jordan Trail
  • Discover the ancient hidden ‘rose-red city’ of Petra, entering via the Monastery
  • Walk through stunning canyons in the desert wind sculpted wilderness

This new challenge offers a chance to trek through some of the most exhilarating and rugged landscapes in Jordan. You will walk through deep, dramatic gorges and canyons shaped by the elements as well as crossing high ridges on routes once known only to the local Bedouin. 

From Dana Nature Reserve, the path along the edge of the desert is surprisingly rich in flora and fauna. The high cliffs are home to Ibex and many species of birds, and the deep valley floor supports a variety of plants. The trail crosses the desert through wide dry river beds leading back into the mountains to climb up and over high passes. 

The highlight of the challenge will be the entry into ancient Petra where you’ll cross a high plateau and be treated to the sight of the Monastery of Petra gradually coming into view before you twist and turn your way through the Siq into this spectacular ancient Nabatean city. This tough and enchanting challenge is the perfect introduction to magical Jordan!
