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.
