Free/Cheap Walking and Hiking Groups in Amman

If you live in Amman, you probably know that you will spend the majority of your time going from point A to point B in a car. As I moved to Amman from Barcelona, I still find it very hard to adapt to the fact that I can’t walk anywhere I want to. However, with a city full of expats from all over the world, I knew there must be people out there like me who come from backgrounds where they’re used to getting around by foot.

After a bit of investigation, I found the following Facebook groups that unite walkers and hikers alike and the best part is, their activities are either free or cheap enough to do if you’re on a tight budget.

Eco Hikers

Eco Hikers organizes “Clean as we Hike” trips on weekends only (Friday or Saturday). The hikes are initially limited to less than 10 km to ensure a single day trip. Additionally, the hikes also serve in showcasing rural Jordan to the hikers and may even go the additional mile in language exchange.

Sign up for an Eco Hikers hike via their Facebook here.
