Itineraries

Day 1

Welcome to Jordan!

Ahlan wa sahlan! You will hear this sentence a lot here in Jordan - welcome! Once you step off the plane, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped into an entirely different world. After passing through passport control and customs, meet your driver in the arrivals hall of the Queen Alia International Airport who will guide you to the car which will bring you to your hotel in Amman. Check-in, freshen up and get ready to explore the capital city of Amman. Due to the central location of your hotel, you are only a 10-minute walk away from the main tourist sites. If you arrive late at night you can have dinner and get ready for bed. *Accommodation:http://art-downtown.hotels-amman.com/en/

Day 2

Cycle from Amman to the Kafrain Water Dam

Rise and shine! After a delicious breakfast you will be picked up from the reception of your hotel and brought to the starting point of today’s cycling tour: the King Hussein Public Gardens. Here you will be provided with a helmet for safety and a bike. After a short briefing on the general safety aspects of this trip, you’ll start. Today’s trip is approximately 35 kilometers, taking anywhere between 4 and 5 hours. During the trip, you climb 327 meters and descend 1452 meters over paved roads only. You’ll cycle past Al Rababieh and Al Bayader before reaching Iraq al Amir to find the ruins of Qasr al Abed, an old fortress. After Iraq al Amir you leave the greater Amman region, now enjoying spectacular views of the countryside. Your final destination for today is the Kafrain Water Dam. After lunch, you return back to Amman by bus with the rest of the day you get to spend however you want. *Meals:Breakfast, Lunch *Accommodation:http://art-downtown.hotels-amman.com/en/

Day 3

Venture to Mount Nebo and the Dead Sea

After breakfast, your trip continues onto Mount Nebo, the place where Moses saw the Promised Land. On a clear day, you can even see Jerusalem. At Mount Nebo, you will begin today’s ride, and mostly downhill on paved roads. However, at Ouin al Theeb you will be driving off-road. This route gives you great panoramic views of the valley below, descending 1665m until you reach the lowest point on earth: the Dead Sea. On the way, you will ride past houses located in the valley. If you are lucky you even get a chance to talk to some locals who are going about their daily lives. The climbs can be steep at certain points during the ride, however, the views are totally worth it. Riding through the mountains you slowly feel the temperature and humidity increasing until you reach the Dead Sea Road. You will be collected from the Dead Sea and driven back to the Christian city of Madaba. *Meals:Breakfast, Lunch *Accommodation:http://www.mosaiccityhotel.com

Day 4

Cycle from Karak to Al Hasa

After breakfast you will be picked up from the reception of your hotel to be driven to Karak, a village has become famous for its crusader castle. This castle is the largest castle in the Middle East, previously a refuge for traders and pilgrims. Today’s ride is quite a bit more challenging than the previous two rides. The ride is approximately 47km. During the ride, you drive through the countryside which enables you to enjoy the beautiful views over the valleys and the villages down below. After lunch, you will be brought to the Dana Biosphere Reserve, the largest nature reserve in Jordan which encompasses all four different biogeographical zones of the country due to the differences in height within the reserve. Enjoy the beautiful views while the sun sets over the Wadi Dana valley. Dinner will be served at your camp tonight. *Meals:Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner *Accommodation:https://danacooperative.wordpress.com/wadi-dana-eco-camp/

Day 5

Head for the Majesty of Petra

This morning, you’ll drive to Dana, a crusader castle in Shobak, located on a mountain - a dramatic view of the castle when driving towards it. The ride today is approximately 46 kilometers with an ascent of almost 600 meters and a descent of 1100 meters. From here you start descending into the valley below where you can take a break, drink some water and enjoy a snack before starting the toughest part of today’s journey: a 500-meter climb over a length of 15 kilometers. On the way, you can take as many breaks as you want in order to make it to the top. Once you reach the top you can enjoy some spectacular views. If you look carefully to your left you can even see the Kings’ Highway meander through the mountains.From here you will be picked up and brought to your hotel in order for you to rest for your visit to the highlight of this trip: Petra. *Meals:Breakfast, Lunch *Accommodation:https://www.lamaisonhotel.com.jo

Day 6

Explore the Majesty of Petra

Good morning! Today there won’t be any cycling. You have the day to explore this fantastic UNESCO and World Heritage site. Explore the magnificent sandstone cliffs, canyons, and caverns that empty out into awe-inspiring buildings carved into the stone. Walk through the majestic Siq until you reach the Treasury. Due to its location in between the mountains, it has been protected from natural corrosion from sunlight, water, and wind. You can visit the Royal Tombs and make the climb to the viewpoint to look down onto the Treasury as the morning sun hits it. Or perhaps climb up the mountain opposite to the High Place of Sacrifice and take the trail down to the Garden Temple Complex. At the end of the day you return to your hotel for some well-deserved rest. *Meals:Breakfast *Accommodation:https://www.lamaisonhotel.com.jo

Day 7

Enjoy One Final Adventure!

After a comfortable sleep and a delectable breakfast, hopefully, you are ready for one final adventure in Jordan. You will be picked up from your hotel at 8am this morning and taken to the starting point of today’s trip: Rajif village. Today’s ride is fairly easy. During the 44km ride, you will descend from 1570 meters to 966 meters below sea level. Driving through the desert is an experience you will not forget any time soon. Enjoy the serenity and the lack of villages and people around you and fully take in the warmth of the sun on your skin. Today’s ride ends on the desert highway. From here you will be brought to Aqaba for some well-deserved rest on the shores of the Red Sea in Aqaba. *Meals:Breakfast, Lunch *Accommodation:http://city-tower.aqaba-hotels-jo.com/en/
