This challenging and adventurous trek takes us through unique landscapes in one of the friendliest countries in the world, ending at the impressive rock-hewn facades of Petra’s red canyons, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.

Starting at Dana, we follow ancient Bedouin paths for one hundred spectacular, vista-packed kilometres of the 650-km Jordan Trail. From gentle hills, wadis and arid desert, we cross the dramatic mountains, sandstone canyons and wild-sculpted escarpments of Jordan’s Rift Valley.

Our trek ends with a beautiful, little-used ascent to the ‘back door’ of Petra, the ancient Red-Rose City of the Nabateans, which we have time to explore. A day relaxing at the Dead Sea rounds off this unforgettable adventure. Any keen Aladdin fans may spot some familiar contours along the way, as the latest live action film was filmed in many locations around Petra. But after getting a glimpse of this adventure, we reckon this will be at the top of your genie wish list!’

In our three previous treks, nearly 100 trekkers have together raised more than £300,000. They’ve made a huge contribution to the £1million the Stars Appeal needs each year to help hundreds of patients in Salisbury District Hospital, with projects like these.
