This is a great site for eco-tourism in Jordan, but you have to plan ahead. Most trails require guides which you have to book in advance. It’s beautiful though and there are lots of options for trails and levels of difficulty!

Dana is practically unheard of outside Jordan, and when discussing with other tourists, many were skipping Dana from their itinerary. We were apprehensive, as when we arrived it was cloudy and Dana village looked very small. However, as we were welcomed into a restaurant with...More
