Heat and Water Resources

 

Sun protection is required for all riders, especially during the hot months between March- October. Make sure you wear weather-appropriate clothing and bring enough sunscreen in order to avoid overheating and sunburn. The extreme temperatures, regularly over 40°C in the summer, require large amounts of water consumption. Be aware of the various locations for refuelling (within the section details you can see various facility information).

 

Difference between Experience Jordan (guided) and Non-Guided Tours

 

Guided and non-guided tours are very different, be aware that if you choose the latter you will need to arrange a first- aid kit and have knowledge of the various water resources available on the route, and any safety procedures should be your responsibility. Guided tours provide a support truck which will carry your belongings and take care of you during the entirety of your trip. We can also arrange homestays and local services for you which would ensure a unique experience.

 

First Aid Information

 

Riders who cycle through the trail without a guide should carry at all times a first aid kit and have full knowledge of what to do in case of an accident. Refer to our website for specific guidelines referring to medical care around the country.
