What is the Jordan Trail?
The Jordan Trail is a national hiking trail. It crosses the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan from Um Qais in the north to Aqaba and the Red Sea in the south. Offering 40 days of trekking and more than 600 kilometers of trail, it connects diverse landscapes and stunning views with the country’s rich historical and cultural heritage.
Along the trail, you will witness the rolling hills of the north, the rugged wadis and cliffs overlooking the Jordan Rift Valley, the salty waters of the Dead Sea, the rose-red rock structures of Petra, the dramatic sands and towering mountains in Wadi Rum, and the colorful corals of the Red Sea. It is also a journey through the layers of Jordanian history, and an encounter with the country’s people and their cultures, traditions, and cuisine.
