FAQ - DANA TO PETRA


Jordan is one of the safest countries on the world! The first thing you will notice when you arrive to Jordan is that the people are very warm and welcoming to tourists. You will be pleasantly surprised by the sense of security you will find in Jordan- it is one of the safest places to travel in the world. Jordan maintains good relations with ALL of its neighbours and is truly an oasis of peace in this region. The country is fairly liberal, westernised, and friendly local population.

When planning your clothing needs (particularly women), remember that you will be travelling in a Muslim country, albeit not a very conservative one. Too much body should not be displayed. Women and men can wear shorts, though it’s preferable for women to avoid wearing them while walking in Amman’s city centre. By following above guidelines, you will feel more relaxed. Make sure you bring with you comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sun block. The weather is usually warm in summer, but winters can be very cold, evenings are cool year round, so bring adequate warm clothing with you. If you were sleeping in the desert then you would need a warm sweater and Jacket even in summer.

All our tour leaders are Jordanian locals who have extensive knowledge of the local communities and terrain of the areas you will be visiting. We also make sure that they are properly trained in any specialized activities they may administer i.e. hiking, cycling etc. Your tour leader will also be in a position to provide information on the places you visit, recommend things to do and where to eat.

Jordan’s capital Amman is served by Queen Alia International Airport which operates daily flights, from and to, all the major cities of Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East. If your city does not have direct flights to Amman it should be relatively easy to organize your flight plan through your local travel agent.

Jordan is blessed with moderate temperatures and all four seasons all year round. We don’t offer packages during the few months of winter when it can get quite cold and wet but the rest of the year we are open for business

Fostering cultural interaction and exchanges between our foreign guests and local Jordanians is something we make every effort to encourage, knowing that it enhances the holiday experience for our guests as well as expose Jordanians to different cultures and viewpoints from around the world.

On this holiday we will be trekking through a desert world that has been crossed by nomadic people and their livestock for generations. We will be trekking on scant trails, however, far away from the route taken by our support vehicle. The underfoot conditions will include dry wadis, open sandy desert and rocky desert known as ‘hamada'. There are also sections of narrow trail across rocky terrain including some easy scrambling. The tracks and trails we use are generally not difficult. We will walk for an average of 5 to 6 hours on each of days 2 to 6, covering as much as 15 kilometres each day and with a reasonable amount of ascent and descent. This is a relatively short trekking holiday and at low elevation.
