Overview

Book
A thrilling journey, awash with geographical and cultural splendour, as we cross the amazing kingdom of Jordan. On this superb mountain bike ride we encounter many of the must see' locations of this engaging country and also experience its warm and traditional hospitality. From the spiritual site of Mount Nebo we'll witness the stunning views across to the Promised Land', before a descent to the shores of the Dead Sea - an incredible 400 metres below sea level!

This is the lowest point on earth and it's a truly unique experience to climb back up to sea level and beyond. On a mix of tarmac and jeep trails we then traverse one of the longest canyons in Jordan, arriving at the high mountain plateau of Dana, where the magnificent panorama includes the Wadi Araba desert, far below. Following a chain of impressive Crusader fortresses, including the magnificent Karak Castle, we enjoy exhilarating biking as we descend through the Valley of Moses to Petra, where we have a welcome rest and exploration day at the ancient 'rose-red city'. Moving on from Petra, we discover the majestic grandeur of the desert landscapes at Wadi Rum, once home to Lawrence of Arabia. After a night under the stars with our Bedouin hosts, it's a short ride to the Red Sea, where we will be ready for a well-earned drink and swim to end this action-packed week of adventure biking.

The itinerary and sight-seeing/cycling mix was perfect. The day in Petra was excellent, the tunneil into Shobrack castle was good and the night in Wadi Rum was unmissable.

Raslan (our guide) is such an inspirational cyclist, so really kept us all motivated, taking pictures the whole time, riding back and forth in the group, really keeping us going, always smiling! I had little things with my bike, which he always fixed without getting annoyed, and it seemed the bigger problems he was great with too. He really made sure we were all smiling (even if it meant grimacing while we were going up, at the top we would be smiling!) again, I can't say enough just how amazing Raslan was!!! This was without a doubt the hardest but best weeks of my life. The trip run as smooth as anything and was just such a phenomenal trip- the scenery, the routes that we took, the variation in terrains, on-road, off-road, desert; it never for a minute got boring! And all the surprises and castles along the way just made it even more special. And the constant delicious snacks put the cherry on top!

The itinerary was wonderful - it was extremely challenging, but this is how it was advertised. The support was absolutely outstanding - on every level - practical, psychological, emotional, social. Azif was an incredibly motivation and inspiring guy who made a huge contribution to the whole experience. Raslan (our guide) was fantastic - hugely competent and knowledgeable. His skill and experience as a cyclist together with his great interpersonal skills meant that we always felt that we were in extremely safe hands. At the same time he was extremely fun to be with.

I enjoyed every moment: biking - even when I was almost dead at the Karak ascent, the cultural side and especially the very good food. And lets not forget the Arak experience, provided by Atef!

The local agent was amazing. Friendly, helpful and seemed to think of everything. Very impressed. Have dealt with many adventure travel companies, and various local agent. Must say this was one of the best. Everything well taken care of, and always happy to see a local company and therefore the local people supported through these trips. Loved the purchase of food through local families, and the 'barter" system with locals to provide our leftover foods to locals in such a way so that it didn't feel like a handout. Everything well organized and quite impressed. Rented a bike, and found the quality very good and excellent value. Absolutely loved this trip. I've only been on one cycling trip before, and definitely found this trip challenging, but loved it! Really and excellent way to see the "real" Jordan. First trip with KE, and felt everything was well managed. Overall very good value, and would certainly consider another trip with KE.

This really was a brilliant holiday from when we arrived in Jordan everything went extremely well. I cannot sing the praises of the support team highly enough. The whole holiday was just one of the best. Great for biking, great for culture, castles, dead sea, Petra etc, great for visiting the real Jordan, staying in local house, Bedouin tent, tea with the Bedouin and just talking with the support crew.

Was a fantastic trip, superbly organised both in the UK and Jordan. It was terrific and I will definitely be doing another KE trip in 2012. I most enjoyed the difficulty and variety of the cycling, the local staff (Anas and Atev) were great fun, highly knowledgeable and worked extremely hard. The route was amazing in its variety, and the whole experience was on the right side of challenging ie wasnt too hard to stop being fun.
