A horseback ride in Jordan. Arabian horses from desert climates are known for their endurance and speed. In Jordan, we work with a Bedouin family based in Wadi Rum. A horseback ride through the spectacular landscape of the Jodanian desert, with monuments from another era: a horseback trip through history. It is a vast wilderness, timeless and terribly beautiful. Your first day is spent walking and exploring the amazing ruins of Petra. Its ornate facades were carved in sandstone cliffs by the Nabataeans around 400 BC. Then, you leave on horseback to the Wadi Rum great desert ! During your trip, you will meet Bedouin families living in traditional nomadic camps in Jordan.
