Since biblical times Israel and Jordan have been alluring destinations, long attracting visitors. Carved out of the desert by prophets, kings, crusaders and pilgrims, the Holy Land offers many sacred splendours, but also diverse experiences and a rich tapestry of cultures. Bike from Israel to Jordan and back and delve into astounding ancient civilisations, historic relics, impressive religious sites and exquisite natural beauty.
From the ancient metropolis of Jerusalem, sacred to Jews, Muslims and Christians, we cycle down to the lowest elevation on Earth, where cycling below sea level, at -400 m, can be your new bragging rights! During our circumnavigation of the Dead Sea there will also be plenty of arid hills, silent deserts, fertile wadis, ancient fortifications and Red and Dead seas.
On the west of the Dead Sea, we cycle through inventive desert agriculture, evaporation pools, and reservoirs that irrigate the desert and stay at idealistic communities reclaiming and living on the land from the sand. Appreciate the wonders of the arid landscape as we push up the challenging Scorpion's Ascent and cycle through multi-coloured craters and rock formations.
Entering Jordan we take a water break on the Red Sea before being dried out in the sand dunes of Wadi Rum. Sleeping at a Bedouin camp brings the stars closer. Approaching the ancient Nabatean city of Petra by bike offers a unique perspective of this seven wonder of the world.
Before we depart Jordan, we have one last chance to experience the eerie stillness of the Dead Sea with a float in the salty waters. A ride in the Jordan Valley returns us to Israel, stopping in Jericho before our return to Jerusalem. Israel and Jordan will captivate you at every turn.
