Jordan is carved in the heart of the Middle East and is part of the land bridge , Linking Europe, Africa and Asia. It has seen countless armies come and go – Greeks, Romans, Muslims, and Christian Crusaders – all of whom have left evidence of their conquests. There are thousands of ruins and archaeological sites from all periods in every corner of the country.

Jordan is mainly desert; from the dramatic red sands and towering cliffs of the far south to the stony plains of volcanic basalt in the east. Also packed into this small country are the lush hills of the north and the plunging rift of the Jordan Valley, which runs into the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. The centre of the country is made up of wheat fields, which are cut through by canyons and bordered by craggy mountains. At the southernmost tip of the country, beaches fringe the warm waters of the Red Sea, which harbours spectacular coral reefs.

  • Day 5 : Petra

    Just a short walk from the hotel we arrive at the Gate of the ancient Nabataean city of Petra where we spend the whole day. The rock carved city is hidden in a valley behind an almost impenetrable barrier of rugged mountains. This was once the centre for Nabataean caravan trade. We enter the site through the famous Siq, the narrow and colourful sandstone canyon, at the end of which we find the famous “Treasury”, a huge rock carved facade. This ancient Nabataean capital built more than 2000 years ago, was the cultural and strategic centre for the old spice trading routes. After visiting all the main sites we spend the day at leisure either exploring the city or visiting a “Hamam” – the local bathhouse. We return to our hotel in Petra this evening to relax and get an early night before we get back in the saddle the following morning.

A steep uphill climb brings us to our lunch stop where we are rewarded with views across the Arava Valley. After a picnic lunch there is a very steep descent winding into the valley amongst striking desert scenery.Our destination is our Bedouin camp at Roberts Rock – a real highlight of the trip and a once in a lifetime experience with a BBQ dinner, campfire under the stars, before retiring to our traditional Bedouin Tents.

Heading south we follow a tarmac road to Jordan’s southern most city and only seaside resort, Aqaba. The Arava is part of the Great Rift Valley, a huge fault that runs from Turkey and Syria in the North to the great lakes of Kenya in the South. Our route takes us through the lowest part of the valley with the granite mountains of Edom to the east and the limestone hills of Israel to the west.
