All About this Tour

Once the stopover for ancient nomadic Bedouins, Jordan is now enthralling a new generation of adventure travellers. Follow in the footsteps of Roman Emperor Hadrian, the Prophet Moses, and Lawrence of Arabia and explore the majestic ruins of bygone civilizations, the uber-salty Dead Sea, and the bare sands of Wadi Rum. Mountain biking on former caravan routes offers a local perspective, getting you up close and personal to the shepherds and perhaps even to a camel or two.

Itinerary

Day 1

After arriving in Jordan, we meet at the hotel and go over the trip during our welcome dinner.

Day 2

First, we visit the ancient citadel and the Roman amphitheatre. Then, it's an easy ride to start, then we go on dirt track with a long descent to the Zarqa River, which we cross and transfer to the Dead Sea for a float.

Day 3

A visit to Mount Nebo and Madaba before our ride. The routes are on the quiet roads with rocky brown and lush green mountains on dirt trails, rocky paths, and gravel roads.

Day 4

Today sees more climbing than others. A visit to Shobak Castle, the first Crusader castle in Jordan, then on the saddle for an adventurous ride: dirt trails, higher elevations, and awesome views. We finish at the en-trance of Petra.

Day 5

It's a full day to discover the stunning wonders of Petra. In the morning, we tour Petra by walking, and after lunch, it's free exploration on your own to visit some other hidden spots.

Day 6

Going further down to our destination in Wadi Rum, or the Valley of the Moon, takes us for a riding experience through desert landscape on car-avan tracks. In the evening, there’s a sunset jeep tour for a beautiful night time in the desert.

Day 7

A morning cycle on the desert salt flats around Wadi Rum leads to a mid-morning transfer to Aqaba, Jordan's window to the sea, to enjoy a boat ride before our farewell dinner at the hotel.

Day 8

After breakfast, a group drop-off at the airport in Amman. Please schedule your flight accordingly, or extend your stay in Aqaba - this city is ideal for diving or snor-kelling the Red Sea.

Reviews

The trip was a truly memorable experience. All of us had a great time. It was genuinely an amazing time. Can't believe we experienced so much!

The tour leader and cycling team looked after us extremely well. We all enjoyed each others' company as we were tested to our physical and mental limits!

I have to say it again, a fabulous trip!

The combination of guides was the best collection of logistical skills, country and biking knowledge, tour leadership and friendship that I have encountered on an 'activity package holiday' - and I have tried most of them!

Outstanding in every way. We had the most memorable week of cycling and sightseeing. Thank you.
