Walking grade

Grade 4

This is a Grade 4/SS holiday and features some full and half day walks with generally moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there will be some steep, uneven and rough ground as we explore archaeological sites and follow Bedouin paths. Some days will be dedicated solely to sightseeing or include an element of sightseeing, and our transfers between centres will include walks where possible. Generally we’ll walk between 2.5 hours- 5 hours a day, up to 12kms (8 miles) and an ascent/descent up to 400m. One of our days walking from Dana to Feynan is top of the grade and descends up to 1000m, taking up to five hours. It will be taken at a slow pace. It is certainly a walk where walking poles would be a help.

Discover Collection

Meticulously curated, guided walking holiday itineraries that delve into the culture, wildlife, cuisine, and rich history of the world.

Overview

Holiday Highlights

  • Petra. However many pictures you've seen they don't prepare for the real thing
  • The desert sky at night. There are few places were stars shine brighter
  • Swimming in the Dead Sea. Bring your newspaper and enjoy the float
  • Wadi Rum. The quintessential desert experience
  • Kerak. Dating from 1140, it is a stunning castle. We have time to visit

One could easily spend a year exploring the array of delights of Jordan. The natural wonders, historic ruins, stunning scenery, big skies full of stars, wildlife, flora, the list is endless. Alas few of us have time to do the country full justice so we must take in what is best in the time we have. This holiday offers a complete overview of the highlights, offering cultural delights, great walking and some quirky accommodation. The perfect introduction.

You start in Amman, one of the longest inhabited cities in the Middle East, there will be time to explore the city an the fabulous roman ruins at Jerash to the north. Next head south to Wadi Rum for a night in desert camp. On the way we have a walk in the green, fertile Wadi Ibn Hammad.

Any trip to Jordan must include a visit to Petra, we have two full days to explore the highlights and also walk around the lesser known but equally appealing 'Little Petra'. We have a classic walk through the Dana Nature Reserve.

Finally we visit Mt Nebo to enjoy the same view as Moses had across the Holy Land and then the Dead Sea for a surreal float in the very salty water.

  • Return flights London to Amman
  • Airport transfers.
  • Half board en suite accommodation (apart from the Desert Camp where facilities are shared).
  • Knowledgeable English speaking local guide
  • All entrance fees & transport costs.

  • A 'Water to Go' filter bottle posted to you before departure
  • Entrance fees (unless otherwise specified)

Ibn Hammad

You leave the bustling city behind today and travel out to enjoy a dramatic walk en route at the hot springs of Ibn Hammad.  You enter a sandstone gorge of abundant vegetation and hanging gardens. Following the wadi, you may expect to get your feet wet as much of the walking is in a perennial stream (perhaps higher depending on recent rains).  This walk is unusual as it starts just above sea level and finishes just below. You make a stop at the Crusader castle of Kerak before arriving at Wadi Rum for our overnight stay. You change from the coach to jeeps for the journey across the sand dunes to the Bedouin camp for a night under the stars.  The colours of the desert change as the sun sets and the stars come out.  Dinner, which has been cooked underground, over hot charcoal, is eaten around the camp fire. An extraordinary experience! It is cold at night in the desert so warm clothes will be important.

Day 4

Exploring Wadi Rum

You spend the morning exploring the lunar landscape of Wadi Rum, accompanied by your local guide, seeing the sand dunes, and spying the distant camel trains. You continue to Petra, where you stay for three nights' accommodation. The hotel is located in the town of Petra, Wadi Musa, which is next door to the ancient site allowing easy access. It is believed that Petra has been inhabited from prehistoric times. Just north of the city at Beidha, the remains of a 9000-year-old city have been discovered, putting it in the same league as Jericho as one of the earliest known settlements in the Middle East. Although the ruins is well photographed nothing prepares you for a first hand encounter.

This will be along day. It is a spectacular hike, predominantly downhill. It will be at the top end of the grade. The first hour of the walk is the the steepest.

This morning you take the drive to the Herodium fortress of Machereus, to take a short walk and admire the views of the Dead Sea and across to Israel.

There are essential fresh water showers to wash the salt off after getting in the sea. Finally you finish the day viewing the Holy Land from Mount Nebo.  Mount Nebo is known as Pisgah in the Bible. It is where the Bible says Moses lived out his final days and viewed the Promised Land which he would never enter (Deuteronomy 34:1-8). The mountain offers a fantastic view westward over the Dead Sea, West Bank, Jordan Valley, and, on a clear day, Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

Holiday Grade

This is a Grade 4/SS holiday and features some full and half day walks with generally moderate amounts of ascent and descent. The paths are mostly good, but there will be some steep, uneven and rough ground as we explore archaeological sites and follow Bedouin paths. Some days will be dedicated solely to sightseeing or include an element of sightseeing, and our transfers between centres will include walks where possible.

It is certainly a walk where walking poles would be a help. 

Walks & Excursions

Local Transport Costs

In the holiday cost, we've included all local transport expenses related to the advertised activity programme for your convenience. If there are additional visits or excursions to enrich your experience, you can choose to participate and cover the costs locally. Depending on the itinerary, local transport may involve a mix of private hire coaches, taxis, local buses, and ferries.

Optional Excursions

At your destination, you may have the option to book various local excursions and activities through a local operator. It's important to note that we are not involved in these activities or excursions, and we do not operate, supervise, or control them in any way. Your contract will be directly with the local activity supplier, and we bear no responsibility for their actions or omissions.

Spending Money

Holiday Budgeting

As you plan your holiday budget, it's essential to account for expenses such as drinks, meals not covered in the holiday price, entrance fees not included, optional local excursions, and any souvenirs or additional services like laundry. For a rough estimate, budgeting around £10-£20 per person per day for lunches and drinks is a helpful guideline.

Currency in Jordan

Jordanian Dinar (JOD)

The Dinar is divided into 100 piastres or 1000 fils. It is possible to obtain Jordanian Dinar before you leave the UK. Please check with your bank or nearest Foreign Exchange. ATM machines are available in Amman, Madeba & Petra. Please check with your bank prior to travelling that you will be able to use your card overseas. Cash can be withdrawn from inside the banks, but they are only open from 08.30 – 13.00 when you will usually be out with the group. They are closed on Fridays.

The simplest way to exchange cash is to take Sterling currency or U.S. Dollars, and change at the hotels or Exchange Centres. Travellers’ cheques can be difficult to cash due to the bank opening hours and none of the hotels on the tour will cash travellers’ cheques. We suggest taking a small amount of cash to exchange and to use this in conjunction with your debit and credit cards (which are accepted in the major centres, although few of our accommodations will accept credit cards).

Tipping

As you are probably already aware, tipping or “backsheesh” is a way of life in the Middle East. In order to take the hassle out of tipping, we strongly recommend that you allow your leader to take care of making sure tips are given to hotel and restaurant staff & to local guides and drivers. This will be done using some funds provided by Ramblers Walking Holidays plus a contribution from you, which your leader will collect during the holiday. We suggest an amount of £25-£30 per person for this. A small tip is usually required for the use of toilets and any drinks and meals you purchase yourself.

Tour Leaders & Local Guides

Tour Leaders

Your tour leader plays a crucial role in enhancing your holiday experience, and they share your passion for exploring the world on foot. In addition to being resourceful and organised they are also well-travelled and deeply enthusiastic about showing you new destinations.  Your tour leader takes care of all the local administration, ensuring you can fully enjoy your holiday without worrying about the logistics. While leading group holidays, they always keep in mind that each group is composed of individuals. Each tour leader brings their unique style, talents, and professional background to the table. Rest assured, they are all trained, qualified, experienced, and dedicated to making your holiday as enjoyable, interesting, and inspiring as possible. Remember, your leader, while on holiday, is your first port of call for any issues, ensuring a smooth and worry-free experience for you.

Leader's Evening Briefing

Each evening, your tour leader will meet with you to review the programme for the next day. This is your chance to discuss details and ensure that the planned activities align with your walking ability. If you have any concerns about clothing or equipment, feel free to bring them up during this discussion. If, for any reason, you prefer not to participate in the organised group programme, please inform your leader. Your preferences are important, and your leader is there to make sure your experience aligns with your expectations.

Your Travel Details

We fly from London Heathrow (LHR) to Amman (AMN) and return with Royal Jordanian.

On arrival the transfer from the airport to our hotel in Amman takes approximately 45 minutes by road, depending on traffic conditions.

Transfers between centres will be by road and on foot.


Booking Your Own Travel Arrangements

If you prefer to arrange your own flights from a non-UK or regional airport or travel to your holiday destination by rail or car, you may qualify for 'land only' reductions, and we can provide details upon request. Feel free to reach out to us for more information.

Before finalizing any independent travel arrangements, especially if you're doing so 12 weeks or more before your intended travel date, please check with us first to ensure your holiday has been cleared to operate. If you plan to join your holiday locally, kindly inform us at least 14 weeks in advance.

Please be aware that you must arrive within 30 minutes of the group flight/train arrival to be eligible for the group transfer. Additionally, we'll need your flight number, arrival time, and departure point or independent travel arrangements to ensure the group leader can meet up with you. If you have a mobile, please ensure we have the number, and it is turned on while you are traveling for effective communication.

Hotel Transfers

When you book a flight or rail inclusive holiday, transfers between the airport/station and hotel and back are included. On some holidays, where we offer various flight options, the transfer vehicle may wait for all flights to land before transferring to the hotel.  

Luggage Allowance & Travel Documents

If you're booking a flight or rail inclusive holiday, rest assured that details of your travel arrangements and baggage allowance will be clearly outlined in your 'Final Travel Documents'. These will be sent to you approximately 10 days before your departure, ensuring you have all the necessary information for a smooth and well-prepared journey.

Passports and Visas

Passport Information for Jordan

You will need a passport to visit Jordan, and it must be valid for at least six months beyond your intended return to the UK. A visa is also required and is included in your tour cost if you are travelling on the group flight. If you are travelling independently, you will need to arrange your own visa.

Please note that we can only include you on the ‘group’ visa if you intend to arrive and depart with our party. If you intend to visit Jordan ahead of the party, remain in Jordan after the group has returned, or arrive/depart on a different flight, you will need to obtain your own visa at your own expense. If you hold a British passport, you can obtain an individual visa on arrival at Amman airport (approximate cost at time of writing is JOD40) or you can contact the Jordanian embassy to obtain your visa prior to travel.

Their website is www.jordan.embassyhomepage.com

All other passport holders should consult with the Jordanian Consulate   The FCO website advises that evidence of a previous visit to Israel such as an Israeli entry/exit stamp in your passport does not normally cause any difficulties when entering Jordan. It is, however, for the Jordanian authorities to determine the right of entry into the country. If you have any concerns, you should contact the Consulate of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in London. 

Further information may also be found at the British Foreign Office Website:

Jordan travel advice - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

Meals

As  Jordan  is  a  Muslim  country,  alcohol  is  not  always  available  to  purchase  at  hotels  and  restaurants.  In  many cases though, hotels may allow you to purchase alcohol outside the hotel to consume on their premises,  either in the restaurant area or in your rooms. Your leader will be able to offer guidance on this during the holiday. Please note that alcohol is expensive in Jordan, with local beers costing up to JOD5 per bottle and spirits up to JOD10 per  drink.  There  is  a  local  speciality  spirit  of  Arak  (an  aniseed  based  drink),  plus  a  very  refreshing  lemon  and mint drink, which you may wish to try.

Breakfasts  and  dinners  are  included  in  the  holiday  charge.  Dinners  will  generally  be  taken  at  our accommodation, with the exception of the last night in Madeba, when we eat at a local restaurant. Lunches are not included. Picnic supplies can be bought at local supermarkets and your leader will give ample notice for you to  shop  if  you  will  have  a  picnic,  or  at  a  local  restaurant.  Your  leader  will  give  you  information  in  your  daily briefings.   Specialities of Jordan include lamb and chicken dishes with vegetables, rice, salads, and fresh made bread. The local Hummus, Tahini and dips are delicious. Vegetarians are easily catered for.

No refunds will be made should you be excluded from the walking programme through being uninsured or you being unable to demonstrate that you are insured.

Our house broker MPI should be considered for whom we are an affiliate and contact information is on our website and will be referred to in your booking confirmation.

When you're out and about, stay aware of your surroundings. Take smart precautions with your credit cards and passport, and maybe tone down the flashy accessories.

Stay alert, stay safe, and make the most of your travels!

Cultural Awareness

Responsible Travel

We are dedicated to promoting responsible travel practices that prioritise the well-being of both the environment and local communities. We believe in the transformative power of travel and aim to minimize our ecological footprint by selecting eco-friendly accommodations, encouraging waste reduction, and supporting sustainable transportation options where possible. Our walking tours are designed to immerse participants in the local culture, fostering meaningful connections with the communities we visit. We strive to leave a positive impact by engaging in responsible tourism activities, respecting local customs, and contributing to the preservation of natural landscapes. Through our commitment to responsible travel, we aim to create enriching experiences for our guests while actively contributing to the conservation of the destinations we explore.

The Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust

Unlike many other tour operators, we take pride in our unique approach. Ramble Worldwide channels its surplus profits back into various outdoor, walking-related, or environmental conservation projects in the UK through our own trust. When you choose us, you contribute to this impactful initiative.

The Ramble Worldwide Outdoor Trust is passionate about making the outdoors more accessible for more people from all communities. We grant funds to many organisations and have recently partnered with Mind Over Mountains, Adaptive Grand Slam and other groups to create an enduring impact on people’s lives and to support them to enjoy the outdoors. In addition, the Trust makes many small grants to local organisations such as Ramblers Groups, Walkers are Welcome, My kind of Books and recently provided a small grant, via his scouting group, to enable a young man whose family had fallen on hard times to complete his DofE Gold award.

Patron of the Trust is the renowned explorer, Mark Wood. Over 20 years Mark has undertaken expeditions to some of the most remote parts of our planet. Our shared values make for an exciting partnership, and we believe that by standing shoulder to shoulder we can encourage people from all communities to enjoy being active outdoors in whatever way suits them best.

For more comprehensive details, please visit the 'About' section on our website and click on the Charitable Trust link. Your choice to travel with us goes beyond a memorable vacation; it contributes to meaningful projects that have a positive impact on our community and environment.

Heart and Sole

We appreciate that we are in a fortunate position to be able to use our profits to help make a difference to people's lives. Heart & Sole is a venture managed by our office staff, whose aim is to reach the heart of the communities in the countries we visit. Through Heart & Sole, we hope to make more of a long term, direct impact to these communities, particularly in less developed countries where even a small amount goes a long way. See our website for more information and details of some of the projects we support.

Staying In Touch

Mobile Phones

Kindly share a mobile phone contact number with us. We'll utilize this solely for crucial communication pertaining to your holiday arrangements.

Ensure your mobile phone remains switched on and easily accessible when en route to the airport or during transit delays. This way, we can promptly reach you with any last-minute updates concerning your travel plans.

In consideration of others, we request that you switch off your mobile phone during walks or make an effort to limit its usage. Additionally, during group meals, please minimize the use of mobile devices. Your cooperation ensures a seamless and enjoyable experience for everyone on the journey.
