Taste & Trails of Jordan



Absorb ancient history and modern culture through the eyes of locals on this 8-day route through Jordan. We start in Jordan’s bustling capital of Amman with its ancient Roman archaeology. We’ll head south and take a dip in the Dead Sea before hitting Jordan’s best hiking trails from Little Petra to Petra to the ochre landscapes of Wadi Rum. Enjoy true Bedouin hospitality along the way before venturing north to the Ajloun Forest Reserve to visit the ancient Greek & Roman ruins of Umm Qais overlooking the Sea of Galilee. Along the way we visit numerous social enterprises on Jordan’s Meaningful Travel Map, engaging with a women’s soap-making cooperative and a community-run cooking project where you’ll learn to make traditional Jordanian dishes.
