You can walk all the way from north to south

Should you have the energy, you can cover the entire country on foot – via the Jordan Trail. Inaugurated last year, this hiking heaven meanders 402 miles between Um Qais in the far north (almost on the Israeli border), and Aqaba. With an estimated 40 days required to follow it from one end to another, it is not a challenge that recreational walkers will attempt in one go, but its eight sections still make for remarkable mini-adventures – southern portions tick off Petra and the desert landscape of Wadi Rum. And there are discoveries too – those who start in Um Qais can take in the Greco-Roman ruins of Gadara, while the Crusader-built Kerak Castle waits further along.
