Jordan is home to one of the most amazing wild spaces in the world, the Wadi Rum. The wind-sculpted mountains and canyons rise straight from the desert floor, with weird rock formations to explore, as well as Jordan's highest mountain, Um Dami, to summit. But there is so much more - ancient biblical sites, the Dead Sea, Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, fascinating Amman with its Citadel, and Jerash, the Roman City.
Visit Petra, the ancient Nabatean red rose city.
Stargaze while in the Wadi Rum, on one of our fully supported treks, while camping in fabulous locations.
Summit the highest mountain in Jordan for fabulous views into Saudi Arabia towards the Gulf of Aqaba.

To use a very cliched phrase that is nonetheless still true, it was the experience of a lifetime. Jordan holds a special place in my heart, for so many personal reasons and I was delighted to have the opportunity to go back. The Wadi Rum has some of the most evocative scenery on the planet, being used for films like the Martian. It is harsh, unyielding and stunningly beautiful all at once. The 100km trek is no walk in the park, particularly with the depth of the sand and the heat – but what a place to challenge yourself. This trek is and will always be, one of the highlights of my career.
