SSAFA, Petra Trek, September 2024

19th - 24th September 2024

A 6-day spectacular adventure discovering one of the hidden gems of the Middle East, Petra!

On this weekend trekking challenge in Jordan, you will witness at first hand spectacular desert landscapes, unspoiled wilderness and archaeological remains steeped in history and culture. Your ultimate destination is the astonishing rose red city of Petra. Set in a deep canyon and accessible only by a narrow cleft in the rock, it is almost impossible to overrate Petra – the silent, unchanged, colossal ruins are a visual feast.

To enter you need to pay the non-refundable registration fee and raise the minimum sponsorship. The trip costs and airport taxes are paid for by SSAFA, however, if you would like to self-fund do get in touch with Hannah at SSAFA.
