We are incredibly excited to announce the destination of our 2023 Worldwide Trek destination, as chosen by our community, The Ancient City of Petra!
This incredible 8-day trip will bring you through some of the most exhilarating and rugged landscapes in Jordan, but before you begin the hard work you will get the chance to explore the city of Amman and all of the history it has to offer; the Roman theatre and citadel, Mount Nebo and of course a visit to the famous dead sea where you can float and relax. From here you will begin your 5-day trek through deep, dramatic gorges and canyons shaped by the elements as well as crossing high ridges down to wadis, on routes once known only to the local Bedouin. The highlight of the challenge will be the entry into ancient city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the New 7 Wonders of the World, where you will be treated to the sight of the ancient Monastery gradually coming into view before you make your way in this spectacular ancient Nabatean city.
