The Jordan Trail is a long distance hiking trail in Jordan connecting the length of Jordan from the north (Umm Qais) to the south (Aqaba), offering 40 days of hiking over more than 650 kilometers of trail and travelling through 52 villages and towns on the way. The Trail crosses the diverse landscapes and vistas of the Kingdom, from the rolling wooded hills of the north, the rugged wadis and cliffs overlooking the Jordan Rift Valley, the rose city of Petra, the dramatic sands and towering mountains in Wadi Rum, to the crystal waters of the Red Sea.
As you walk the Jordan Trail, it becomes a journey through the history of Jordan and an encounter with its diverse culture. Travelling the length of the country enables a chance to peel through the different layers of culture, to taste the varied cuisines of Jordan, encounter locals while walking and spending your nights in their home-stays. It is also an opportunity to learn the history of Jordan, the different civilizations who have made their marks on the land. The Trail moves through major sites in the region such as Umm Qais, Jerash and Petra, while also harboring hidden ruins resting throughout the land.
