The Dana to Petra trek has been rated one of the world's best hikes by National Geographic. Do not miss this opportunity to hike across the spectacular scenery of southern Jordan, immerse yourself in the rich heritage and tradition of the region and explore the lost city of Petra during this nine-day, guided tour.

Hit the trail that traverses the mountainous plateaus around Dana village before descending to the Araba Valley. Cover several climatic zones during your journey and see various ecosystems hidden in deep canyons and a labyrinth of hills and valleys.

This trek will allow you to sample the entire geological spectrum of the region. Epic views appear along the way, from majestic rugged mountains to gentle hills to slightly rounded, mushroom-shaped rocks, and culminate in Petra, a city located amid rugged desert canyons and jagged mountains.

“This was a fantastic trip. All the guides and drivers were prompt, knowledgeable, and made each day of our trip spectacular. Experience Jordan put up with us changing a bit of our trip in the middle and made a side trip happen for us, which I greatly appreciated. The places we stayed at were great (the Chalets at the Dead sea and the tents the first night at Wadi Rum were probably my favourite).”
Everything was awesome!

“Very well-planned, with backups for the snow/flash floods on day 2. Incredibly authentic and raw experience constantly fulfilled. Jawad & Taz our guides were amazing! They created an incredible culture within the group, and it was the highlight of our month in the Middle East because of them.”

Travel Insurance

We advise to take out Travel Insurance to cover for any unforeseen circumstances. Bookmundi recommends World Nomads' travel insurance.

Jordan Visa requirements: Many nationalities can get a visa for Jordan at the airport or at the Sheikh Hussein crossing. However, the Allenby/King Hussein Bridge crossing and the Arava Boarder crossing do not issue visas. Visa requirements for Jordan are shown on the Jordan Tourism Board website. The entry visa to Jordan is 40 JD, and must be paid in Jordanian Dinar. There are currency exchanges and an ATM at the ports of entry. Please refer to your itinerary for questions about visas as this has already been planned for by your travel specialist. Packing for your hike: You only need to carry your daypack with you on the hikes. We will transport your overnight bags to each stop. We recommend you keep your daypack as light as possible, just to carry your water, camera and whatever else you want during the day. You will thank us later! For your overnight bag, we recommend large rucksacks, or soft duffle bags that can be locked. Blankets are provided, however, some people prefer to bring their own sleeping bag, or at least a sleeping bag liner. If bringing a sleeping bag, we recommend a 2/3 season sleeping bag. (If your trip takes place between November and March, you will need a warm sleeping bag and thermal underwear for the evenings.) Temperatures in Jordan can be hot and with little rain. In the months of November to March it can be very cool at night, particularly in the desert where night temperatures can drop to 5 degrees Celsius or less. Even in the hot months out in the desert it can sometimes get cold at night.
