Jordan is a country of many different types of breathtaking landscapes and one of the best ways to see it is by hiking. Though the Jordan Trail covers 600+ kilometers of the country from north to south, the majority of these hiking paths are unmarked. Because of this, guided hikes are highly recommended. If you’re an experienced hiker (or happen to have Bedouin blood) and know how to get around using GPS apps like maps.me, then you can save some JDs and go on a self-guided hike, but if you’re not looking to get stuck in the middle of Wadi Rum, then I’ve compiled a list of some local private tour companies that offer hiking tours in Jordan.
Here they are…
