Very similar to the famous Siq in Petra, this trail leads through magnificent sceneries of different stone formations and many unique plants and trees on both sides of the river. Wadi Ghweir is located after Dana Biosphere Reserve, in the Shobak area.
We will be leaving Amman very early in order to escape the summer heat! Lunch will be provided during the hike. After that, we will drive you to Petra, where you will spend the night – either at the Bubble Luxotel Petra or at the Mars Camp, depending on your choice. You may enjoy the sunset from a jacuzzi at the Bubble Luxotel or from the beautiful spots near the Mars Camp!
