The Jordan Trail

26 November 2015

The Jordan Trail is a walking trail crossing and connecting the length of the country from Um Qais in the north to the Red Sea in the south, offering over 600 kilometers of beautiful hiking through diverse terrains and landscapes.

 

The trail consists of 8 regions and each region has an average of 4 sections, which are divided in a way that each one of them is done in one day. If you don’t want to do the whole trail, you can choose any of the one-day sections.

The Jordan Trail aims to invite Jordanians and tourists to healthy recreation; to get out walking and to learn about, enjoy and appreciate Jordan in all its beauty and diversity; and to open opportunities for developing local communities and enriching encounters with people, cultures and nature.

It traverses the diverse landscapes and vistas of the country from the rolling wooded hills of the north, the rugged wadis & cliffs overlooking the Jordan Rift valley, the salty waters of the Dead Sea, the pink sandstone rock of the Petra mountains, the dramatic sands and towering Jebels in Wadi Rum, to the colourful corals of the Red Sea. It is also a journey through the layers of history in Jordan – Edomite, Moabite, Nabataean, Roman, Christian, Islamic and contemporary. An encounter with the peoples of Jordan – Fellahin, Bedu, villagers, townspeople, Moslems, Christians, Chechens, Circasians, Gypsy; and their cultures, traditions, and cuisine.
