If you are looking for a new place to mountain bike, then Jordan should be it. With almost completely undiscovered trails, you will feel like you have found a cycling secret. Two wheels will take us along meandering wadis, past remote villages and nomadic communities and into areas of natural beauty with spectacular views over the country. A trip to Jordan would not be complete without a visit to the UNESCO site of Petra. We enjoy a full days exploration here, before spending a night star-gazing in the spectacular Wadi Rum desert.
