I am interested in hiking, climbing, and trekking in Jordan. What company do you recommend for organized trips?
Trails involving climbing and trekking are not included in the guide (with the exception of the Wadi Mujib Malaqi Trail where the RSCN provides a guide and equipment to descent the 30 m waterfall). Especially climbing requires that you know what you are doing and can be dangerous as we have had accidents with fatalities in Wadi Rum (e.g., in March 2014 when three French climbers died in Wadi Rum when their rope got cut).
If you are interested in these activities, we recommend that you check out the website of Terhaal Adventure, a Jordanian company specialized in adventure travel.
Terhaal is known for its customer service, eco-adventures and safety standards (the best we have seen in Jordan).
They are also familiar with the hiking areas described in the guide and can provide support if you would like someone to arrange hiking trips based on our trail descriptions and not worry about logistics.
Just mention our project to Rakan Mehyar, the owner of the company, and the folks at Terhaal will take care of you.
