Description of Jordan cycling tour

This cycling tour through Jordan features five unforgettable days of biking through the spectacular and dramatic landscapes of an intriguing and richly storied destination. Each cycle day covers between 60-100km - but with your gear transported by jeep so you ride unencumbered, enjoying sightseeing breaks along with meals and drinks in cooling shade.

You'll cycle from the Dead Sea the lowest point on Earth - to Aqaba on the sunlit Red Sea. You'll also spend time amid the stunning rose-red ruins of the fabled city of Petra, with an option to spend a magical candlelit evening there, lit up too by Arab storytelling.

Along the way, you'll cycle through the off-the-beaten track Wadi Araba desert with its sweep of classic dunes, as well as the dramatic red sandstone vistas of Wadi Rum, dotted with ancient rock galleries of prehistoric drawings.

You'll gain insight into other histories that have imprinted Jordan too, including the medieval Crusader castle at Kerak, the wonderfully-preserved Roman city of Jerash and the Biblical site of Mount Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land.

At each end of the trip, you'll be able to dip into the bustle and culture of Amman, one of the world's major Arab cities. But you'll also get to pitch tent amid epic, unique landscapes, chatting around campfires, admiring dunes glowing in the setting sun, then countless stars glowing in desert skies.

Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Jordan has a big water problem and we understand that water is too precious to waste. Therefore we ask you to limit your water use when travelling through Jordan. We encourage our visitors to take short showers and to never leave the tap water running unnecessarily.

During this program you will be camping outdoors, we ask you to not leave any waste behind. The Wadi Araba desert has no entry fees and no effort to conserve this desert is made so far. There are no people who come to clean your camping site after you left. You will be camping in the wilderness with your team and therefore it is extra important you leave no rubbish behind.

On this tour you will be doing much of the exploring on two-wheels - a low-carbon and low-impact way to travel when guests stick to marked trails where appropriate etc.

We expect our guests to always take care, to not leave any waste behind anywhere they go and not to damage any sites they visit. All people we work with are instructed to make sure people follow up on this.

As a business we strive to be environment friendly by limiting the use of paper. Reservations and such are all done via email.

The Impacts of this Trip

We have a team of local employees ready to serve you and work on your dream holiday. We give all of them a fair wage and when training opportunities show up, we encourage them to take them. Besides extending their knowledge, this will build their confidence and give them joy at work. In return our employees are very motivated to provide you with a holiday that lets your dreams come true.

During your cycling tour, your luggage will be taken by a local English-speaking driver. He will also transfer you as mentioned in the program. He will point out the locally owned restaurants and shops.

In Petra, you will find a souvenir shop called Handmade in Jordan. You can be sure that all the souvenirs that are sold in this shop, are made by Jordanian artists. They make sure that all the local artists are given a fair compensation for their hard work. Right under the Handmade in Jordan shop, you will find Petra Kitchen. Attending this cooking class is a great way to empower local women.
