An adventurous horseback holiday in Jordan

How we experience destinations - and with whom we travel with - are also questions we are all keen to explore in the post pandemic era. A bucket-list country, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, made CNN's 2022 list of dream destinations, and our new horseback adventure (above and top), which starts and finishes in capital Amman, includes a visit the mysterious, spectacular Rose City of Petra during six days of exhilarating riding through Wadi Rum, the "Valley of the Moon."

More eco-friendly than travelling by jeep, and guided by local bedouins, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to appreciate the wonders of this vast lunar-like landscape through the eyes of the locals. The ten day Follow the Bedouins ride from £1,500 pp (two sharing) includes all accommodation (half board hotels in Madaba, Petra and Aqaba, full-board in Wadi Rum, along with bivouac tents), guides, entrance fees and transfers; return flights, and gratuities (left to guests' discretion) are exluded. Riders (12 years old and up) must be able to trot and canter comfortably. Departures are available in spring and autumn, and Red Sea or Amman extensions are available.
