Jerusalem2Petra - November 2023
OVERVIEW: Come join us as we embark on one of the world's great journeys from Nov. 2nd to Nov. 19th, 2023, following in the footsteps of Richard Burton and Lawrence of Arabia. We commence our 18-day tour by exploring the Holy City of Jerusalem in its anticipation of the holiday season. Cycling south to the Dead Sea and Masada, we float in its salty embrace, soaking up the history of the region. Afterwards, we climb the most famous climb in the Middle east, the Scorpion's Ascent for grand views of the Arava Desert, descending through the Negev to Israel’s water-sport mecca nestled on the Red Sea, Eilat. Cycling into Jordan through the enchanting Wadi Rum Desert, we spend the night in a Bedouin Camp. To climax our adventure, we cycle to the ancient Nabatean city of Petra, considered one of the world's seven wonders. Returning to Jerusalem via Jericho, we encounter the old, walled city in full preparation for the holiday season.
Our cycling trip is fully supported by two-plus vans and experienced, local cycling guides from Bike Jerusalem. Routes range from 30-60 miles with optional pre-breakfast and extension rides. Dive… (Join People Cycling to read more)
