Jordan Travel – Explore Jordan on Foot or in your Overland Vehicle
Our choice to travel in Jordan was to go on foot and were among the first 100 hikers to independently hike and complete the 650-km-long Jordan Trail.
Having said that, Jordan deserves a visit in your overland vehicle with vast deserts to camp and canyons for a 4×4 challenge. We will return bringing our own Land Cruiser one day.
Starting the new year in Ais, part 2 of hiking the Jordan Trail leads from Ais, via Dana and Petra to Wadi Rum and Aqaba, totalling the 650 kms adventure on foot.
After two thru-hikes, the Baekdu-Daegan in South Korea and the Jordan Trail, we have learned what hiking gear we need. Here’s our list.
Part 1 of the Jordan Trail hike, which covers 650 kms of trails from north to south Jordan, with the first half starting in Umm Qays and meandering through agricultural countrysides and Ajlun to Iraq al Amir.
We are about to hike the 650-kilometer Jordan Trail, which runs from the far north of Umm Qais to the Red Sea near Aqaba in the south.
As we’re preparing for the Jordan Trail, I’m uploading my Kindle with novels, memoirs, non-fiction and other books about Jordan.
