If there’s one thing you can’t get enough of in the summer, it’s adventures. There’s something about launching into the great heights that feeds the heart like no other thing! If you haven’t yet, now’s your chance. And if you have, here’s a wider selection to extend your palette of adventures in Jordan.
Get your adventure gear ready and join Tropical Desert Trips for a summer adventure to fill the memory books. They’ve got you covered whether it’s Canyoning, dipping into turquoise rivers when the heat is heavy, or Climbing to test your strength and agility you’re looking for! And if you’re in for something a little more interesting, why not organize a private Caving trip? It’s said that caves are the final frontier in the mountaineer’s experience. From lava tube tunnels to pressure ridges, this one’s a special treat for your group of friends, and the perfect getaway experience!
Maybe you feel like you’ve completed most of the hikes on the map and want to try something new? Well, on Fridays, you can head to the Royal Jordanian Gliding Club and get your pilot’s hat on! If you love it so much, why not work towards a piloting license?
Price: Deals riding the Sky Arrow 650 start at 25 JDs for 15 minutes.
Marqa Airport, Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
If you’re looking for a different aviation experience flying over some of Jordan’s beautiful landscapes, try flying in an Ultralight over the Dead Sea, the Baptism Site, or Mount Nebo with the Royal Aero Sports Club of Jordan. You’ll feel like a bird flying such a lightweight craft!
Price: 20-min flight costs 50 JD, 30-min flight costs 75 JD, 45-min flight costs 90 JD
For a milder dose of heights and escaping the heat, head to Climbat. Find you center of gravity, get some high goals in sight and the strength in your legs to test on the walls, which range in difficulty and style. There’s something particularly compelling about figuring out your strategy up, depending on your grip, and trusting that each step gets you closer to the target, and further from the ground!
Ranger Adventure Camp
There’s no doubt that every once in a while, everyone wants a fun family outing. If that’s the case for you, check out the Jordanian Adventure and Exploration Center. While perfect for school trips, the center also caters to employee or family retreats. Get your team-building skills in motion while enjoying the adrenaline rush of swinging, zip lining, and adventure games.
Maybe what you’re looking for is that once-on-a-lifetime escapade. So head to Wadi Rum for a ride in a Hot Air Balloon! Overcome that nagging fear of heights and see the world from a different angle. While this one’s as much adventure as it is date material, one thing’s for sure: the view will be phenomenal.
Jordan Bird Watching Club & Wild Jordan Center
If you’re not one for high views, but could appreciate a creature that is, join the Jordan Birdwatching Club for one of their special expeditions. With 430 different species found in the kingdom, you’re bound to find one you like! And maybe even discover a new hobby. Alternatively, head to the Wild Jordan Center to learn more about the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature’s upcoming wildlife expeditions!
For a long-term adventure to keep in sight, start planning your hike down the Jordan Trail! Four hundred miles, 40 days, eight sections, four biospheres, and 52 villages. An epic hiking adventure to fit into your bucket list, or do in little segments over the next months. If you do the whole thing though, you won’t have to choose among the high views, you’ll get every one of them.
