You will be traveling through Jerash, Petra, Masada and 6 other destinations in Israel and jordan. Israel And Jordan: Walking In The Footsteps Of Abraham is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Journey along ancient pilgrimage trails to experience the highlights of Israel and Jordan. The story of Abraham, Ibrahim, the 'Friend of God' - as he has been named in Jewish, Christian and Islamic tradition - is the beginning of Monotheism. Abraham is perceived in all monotheistic traditions as the ultimate host, opening his tent to any person in need. In this spirit we encounter the culture and places, share the food and the hospitality of the people of the three Abrahamic religions we meet along the way. This comprehensive journey goes beyond the usual touring and biblical itinerary with day walks amongst the most iconic sights and the myriad landscapes of Israel and Jordan. From vibrant seaside Tel Aviv to the captivating Old City of Jerusalem and the renowned holy sites of Nazareth, Galilee and Bethlehem. We hike in the Golan Heights and to the majestic fortress of Masada overlooking the Dead Sea, follow remote pilgrimage trails through the Judaean Desert to the ancient byzantine Chariton Monastery, and experience the unique Kibbutzim lifestyle. We also visit many sites of historical significance and natural beauty in Jordan with walks to the magnificent Red Rose City of Petra and Dana Nature Reserve, breathtaking Wadi Rum under the stars, and the impressive Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash, making this an all-encompassing and memorable adventure.

“This was a very challenging trek with no shortage of rain, mud and some long days. However the rewards of crossing all eleven high passes in some of Bhutans remotest regions far out ways any discomforts. The logistical organisation for the trek was outstanding with some of the best meals and tent accomodation I have experienced. Credit must go to the Bhutanese Yangphel support crew for ensuring everything ran so smoothly even in some challenging conditions. Many thanks to Jo Gaines, Kesang Dorji and Jigme Tenzin for your support and encouragement.”

“The Great Himalaya Trail is a trek like no other - diverse and breathtaking - with its changing seasons, majestic mountains, challenging altitudes, snow, heat and monsoonal rains it instantly captures your heart and soul. I have so many favourite places from out along the trail
In the east, where the jagged, snow capped peaks of the Kanchenjunga region jut skyward between rocky passes and boulder strewn glaciers.
In the west, where the thick, green juniper forests grow bravely in steep ravines that gradually give way to high, shaley windswept plateaus.
In the Everest region, where the magnificent mountain itself stands shoulder to shoulder with its fellow 8,000 metre peaks, and in the Makalu region, where the stars are so bright, the Milky Way paints a vibrant white stripe across the inky sky.
Our World Expeditions team was absolutely amazing - Skilled, caring and wise beyond words. We very quickly became part of their Nepalese family and settled into a wonderful daily routine immersed in their culture, and in the elements, with our backpacks, trekking poles and our little yellow tents. If you are thinking of trekking the Great Himalaya Trail, Id say do it, you will have an incredible life changing experience.”

“I just came back from the Gokyo & Renjo La trip. It was hard, it was cold and it was amazing. I enjoyed every minute of this very satisfying trip. The views were magnificent and photographs do not do it justice. It was extremely well organised and the cook (labeled by us as the Magician) made some wonderful food in some challenging places. I am 60 and completed it easily so strongly recommend this fantastic trip to anyone.”
