Pack a comfortable backpack (not too heavy, mind you!) and come with us on this experience! You'll be accompanied by Alessandro, a super certified guide who will make you discover Jordan in his own way!
His name is Alessandro Carnevali and will take you to this beautiful adventure!
This is how he describes himself: "I started trekking because a friend of mine told me about his adventures on the Pacific Crest Trail. In the last 6 years I have done a lot of trekking from the Camino de Santiago to Kungsleden in Swedish Lapland via the Via degli Dei and the Dolomites. For the past two years, I have been a hiking guide and have taken more than 100 people on walking adventures in tents."
Arrival at Aqaba
Flight to Aqaba, Jordan's southernmost city overlooking the Red Sea. Here we will spend the evening getting to know each other over some traditional dishes in the city's less touristy streets. Before a well-deserved rest, we'll hit the beach for some quite relax before the hike! You'll sleep in the city :)
Explore Wadi Rum!
Full day dedicated to exploring Wadi Rum with our local guide, who will also host us in his family-run Bedouin camp!
