HORSE RIDE OFFER
10 Days Tours 09 nights
Riding on horseback will take you back to ancient times. To the era when
merchants and adventurers followed the Nabatean spice routes. Their
wellbeing and survival often depended then on the wellbeing of your
mount. In the desert of Wadi Rum the Bedouin people still live as they
have been doing for centuries. They still wander through the desert
looking for the best places to herd their sheep and goats, carrying
their black tents with them wherever they go. We invite you to come
along with us on a journey back in time.
Apart from a six day horse-ride in Wadi Rum, you will also visit the
rose-red city of Petra and other highlights of the Jordanian culture and
history. We expect you to be an experienced horseman, used to riding
outdoors. The horses are mainly full-bred Arabic horses. The tour will
be guided by expert Bedouin guides, who are familiar with the treks
since childhood. We will cover approximately thirty to thirty five
kilometers daily, depending on the territory. Jordan Beauty Tours will
provide all camping equipment and full board during camping days, as
well as first aid and health care when needed. And of course the horses
are well taken care of; a veterinarian will come along with the group.
Our Horse riding program is focused on more exiting, cultural and
challenging views , from our experience as horse riders we created a new
