Trek to Petra

Location: Jordan | Date: 20 May 2023 | Time: TBC

Challenge yourself to a 5 day trek along a breathtaking section of the Jordan Trail in support of Hospice!

Discover the best of Jordan in this exhilarating 5 day trek along part of the Jordan Trail. Trek across deserts, ascend mountains, traverse high ridges and down into wadis. Camp Bedouin-style in the desert and delight in the ancient hidden Rose city of Petra, a UNESCO world heritage site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World. 

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 city of 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!
