highlights
  • Discover hospitable and welcoming Jordan by bike
  • Explore the spectacular desert landscape of Wadi Rum
  • Cycle descent to the lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea
  • Ride to the Dana Nature Reserve
The Jordan By Bike tour starts and ends in Amman. It is a bicycle trip that takes 8 days taking you through Amman in Jordan. Jordan By Bike is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Traverse Jordan from north to south by mountain bike. Jordan will be unveiled to you as we experience its majestic ruins, vibrant culture and exquisite cuisine; all while biking the length of the country on former caravan routes. From the capital of Amman, flanked by ancient citadels and Roman ampitheatres, we explore this oasis of the Middle East from north to south. When possible we transfer high and bike down, including a descent to the lowest place on earth, the Dead Sea. Float and cover yourself in mud before heading up to Mount Nebo, where Moses looked across at the Promised Land, from which we descend to the edge of the Dana Nature Reserve, a bird watcher's paradise. Dirt trails take us along a traverse in the mountains above Little Petra, with a major highlight being our exploratory visit to the Red Rose City of Petra the next day on foot. Finally we cycle the stark desert environment of Wadi Rum, also known as the valley of the moon, before relaxing at the Red Sea which is a fitting finale to our Jordan biking adventure.

“We travelled for 12 days by bike in Vietnam and Cambodia - through the Mekong Delta from Saigon and then up to Angkor Wat - with our 13 year old son. We had an amazing time. Some long rides in very hot weather, but our amazing guide managed to gauge things perfectly - stopping for cold sugarcane juice or providing fresh fruit for short breaks. Lots of cultural and historical information, easy access to sites of significance and a great balance between fun and adventure. The accommodation was of a much higher standard than we had expected - the Mekong delta homestay was incredible. Our group of 7 got on really well, which added another element. The cycling was sometimes challenging due to the heat, but we were able to access areas that no tourists would see - cycling along pathways through villages and rice fields rather than being caught in crowds. Nothing better than pushing yourself and then relaxing with fine local food and the occasional Saigon beer! We loved our trip and will start thinking about where next! Great value too.”

“Most memorable part: The whole adventure. It was brilliant from go to whoa!!! Too much to put into words.”
Welcome to the Kingdom of Jordan. We meet at the hotel for a welcome dinner and go over the details of our upcoming adventure.

Overnight: Larsa Hotel or similar
Meals
  • Dinner
After breakfast, we see the highlights of the city and visit the ancient citadel and the Roman amphitheatre, a 3,000-year-old piece of history built into one of the many hills in downtown Amman. Time to see more of Jordan, so we transfer north to our cycling start point at 625 m. We have an easy start on a ridge, giving you a chance to get used to the bike. A gradual 2 km climb will be a good test of your gears. Then, enjoy the dirt track as you start the long descent to the Zarqa River. In biblical times, the river was known as the Jabbok River, where Jacob wrestled with God. The beautiful long descent caps off one of the best sections of the Jordan Bike Trail. After crossing the river, we hop in our vehicles for a transfer to the Dead Sea. We arrive early in the afternoon, so you can enjoy a float in the salty waters at the lowest point on earth, 410 m below sea level. Cycling distance/elevation - 19km; ascent 253m; descent 908m.

Overnight: Holiday Inn Resort Dead Sea or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
As we are starting below sea level, we have a 1,000-m transfer up the mountainside to the plateau for a visit to Mount Nebo, where Moses looked across at the Promised Land before he died. We continue to the Christian town of Madaba to see the mosaic map of the Holy Land, before we reach our start point. We cycle south on quiet roads across the plains of the Madaba Plateau and through the village of Ma’in. The route then starts a long descent following Wadi Zarqa Ma’in on smooth roads passing the Zarqa Ma’in Dam and continues following the river. This portion of the trail is another scenic highlight with rocky brown mountains on one side and lush green mountains on the other. The terrain includes road, dirt track, rocky paths, and gravel roads. We overnight on the edge of the Dana Biosphere, Jordan’s largest nature reserve and home to a great variety of wildlife. Our hotel is in Dana Village, occupied since about 4,000 BC. Today, Dana is inhabited mostly by clans of the Al Ata’ata, who settled in the area during the Ottoman period, about four hundred years ago, and built the present village. The crumbling village was nearly abandoned, but now 70 of the traditional stone houses have been restored, enabling some families to remain in the village. Cycling distance/elevation - 28km; ascent 282m; descent 836m.

Overnight: Dana Tower Hotel or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
This morning, we drive a short distance to visit Shobak Castle. The first of the Crusader Castles built in Jordan, it was constructed by Baldwin I in 1115 and surrendered in 1189 to the Great Salahdin. We will have more climbing today than any other day, and we start with an incline on a paved road, curling around the castle, until we reach the top of the hill. Here, we hit a dirt trail and begin a stunning section, traversing the side of the mountain, overlooking the mountains of Ras Al-Feid, Mount Safaha, and Gbour Wahdat. The jeep width dirt track crosses dry streams and then climbs to a higher elevation giving us our first glimpse of Petra, Wadi Musa, and the small town of Um Sayhoun, with Aaron’s Shrine barely visible in the distance on top of Jebel Haroun.Finish with a slightly technical descent to the entrance of Petra. Then we take a tarmac road to the entrance of Little Petra. We walk through and clamber up to a dining room with 2,000-year-old frescoes recently discovered in 2010. It is a short cycle from here to our Bedouin camp for the night. We are in tents with cots and shared facilities. Cycling distance/elevation - 56km; ascent 1248m; descent 1539m.

Overnight: Seven Wonders Camp or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
A highlight of any trip to Jordan is to see first-hand the archaeological wonders of Petra. Famous for its rock-cut architecture and water conduit system, the Rose City is not to be missed. After breakfast at camp, we drive to the modern visitors’ centre and start our walk to the narrow and famous entrance to the Treasury. Then, you enter the Siq, exploring the ancient rock carved ruins of Facades Street, the theatre, and the court. After lunch, you explore on your own to discover some of the less visited monuments, such as the monastery, the Khubtha Mountain, and the High Place of sacrifice.

Overnight: La Maison Petra Hotel or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
A long, gradual downhill takes us through quintessential Middle-Eastern desert landscape on caravan tracks. We transfer uphill to the small town of Rajif where we get on our bikes for the desert descent. After a short section on the King’s Highway, the fun begins with a downhill dirt track through pure countryside. On reaching the desert highway, we transfer to Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon. Cut into sandstone and granite rock, it is Jordan's largest Wadi. Scenes of Wadi Rum in “Lawrence of Arabia” kick-started Jordan's tourism industry, but you may also recognize it from “Red Planet” and “The Martian”. We go for a sunset jeep tour to experience a beautiful night under the stars in the desert. Cycling distance/elevation - 47km; ascent 462m; descent 1038m.

Overnight: Rahayyep Desert Camp or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
A morning cycle on the desert salt flats around Wadi Rum will give you yet another perspective on this stark and harsh landscape. Mid-morning, we transfer to Aqaba Jordan's window to the sea, to enjoy and relax on a well-deserved boat ride on the Red Sea. We have a leisurely lunch onboard and ample opportunity to see the vibrant coral while snorkelling. Meet up for our farewell dinner at the hotel and the last night of the tour. Cycling distance/elevation - 40km; ascent 367m; descent 213m.

Overnight: Grand Swiss-Bel Resort Tala Bay Hotel or similar
Meals
  • Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
After breakfast at the hotel, there will be one group drop off at Queen Alia International Airport at approximately 11:30 am (it is determined based on the best timing for the majority) where the trip concludes. Please schedule your return flight accordingly. The group will be driven from Aqaba and are taken to the airport in Amman, you can also be dropped off at a Dead Sea or Amman hotel. If you wish to extend your stay in Jordan, Aqaba is the perfect place to dive or snorkel the Red Sea, and the city also borders Israel and is a popular place to cross.
