Day 1: Amman - Dana - Feynan (Trekking: 7 - 8 hours; 18KM)
Our driver will meet you in Amman and continue to Dana Village. Here we will start the day trekking from Dana Nature Reserve - one of Jordan's loveliest conservatin and wilderness areas - to Feynan Canyon. This spectacular downhill trek winds through the sandstone gorge of Wadi Dana. Along the way, you will likely encounter the local Bedouin herding their sheep and goats. Dinner and overnight at mobile camp in Feynan.
Day 2: Feynan - Barwas (Trekking: 4 -5 hours; 12KM; Altitude: mostly level)
In the morning after breakfast, start trekking through the stony desert with spectacular views of the high mountain ranges to the east and the vast Wadi Araba desert to the west. In the afternoon, head further towards the foot of the mountains. Dinner and overnight at mobile camp in Feynan.
Day 3: Barwas - Ras El Feid (Trekking: 7 - 8 hours; 15KM; Altitude: (700m (2300 ft) ascent, 250m (820 ft) descent)
After breakfast we set off leaving the stony "Hamada" desert behind us. We continue our trek and walk around the foot of the mountain to reach the trail head of an ancient Bedouin migration path that ascends steeply across rocks and small boulders through a twisty track rising high into the mountain. This section can be challenging and takes around 3 hours. The route offers stunning views westwards towards the fascinating Wadi Araba desert. We eventually reach the top of a high saddle which has some of the most beautiful scenery of the trek before descending following a small goat track to the river valley of Wadi Feid. Here we have a well-deserved opportunity to refresh and cool down in its cool water, a perfect place for lunch. We then continue our trek, walking upstream and maneuvering around a beautiful dense garden of oleander, willow, tamarisk and reed. Beyond this we walk along a dry river bed surrounded with colourful sandstone outcrops to reach our camping spot where our crew will be waiting for us with Bedouin tea and after a wash and rest, a Bedouin style evening meal. Dinner and overnight mobile camping.
Day 4: Ras El Feid - Shkaret Msei'd - Amman
With an early rise and breakfast, we continue trekking from Ras El Feid towards Shkaret Msaied and take you by cars to Little Petra to meet the bus for the return to Amman.
Optional: Petra tour after the trekking
