A two-day exploration of lesser-known sites and trails in Petra. We take you beyond the main sights of the Siq and Treasury to wander around the extensive National Park dotted with ruins and stunning views. The trip involves 12-16 km of hiking a day.


Day 1: Petra Back Way

  • 1

    Back-Way Hike

    Today we will enter Petra via 'the Back Door,' avoiding most of the crowds. We will hike a beautiful route up out of the desert valley that skirts around a sandstone mountain into a hidden high plateau and the back entrance to Petra.

  • 2


    Your hike is rewarded as you approach the largest and best-preserved facade in all of Petra. Without the crowds of the main sites below, this site is great for photos!

  • 3


    View the impressive theatre, carved into the mountain about 2000 years ago, with a capacity of 4000 spectators.

  • 4


    Awe at the most-well known facade in Petra, expertly carved into the side of the cliff and standing almost 40 meters tall.

  • 5


    Exit the Nabatean city through the magnificent tall slot-canyon main entrance to Petra known as the Siq.

  • 6


    From there, we will head to the Visitor's Center, where today's tour ends.

Day 2: Petra Trails

  • 1

    Madrass Trail

    We will start on the main trail before quickly departing near the Obelisk Tomb. From there, we will head out on the Madras Trail, tucked in the hills south of the Siq.

  • 2

    High Place of Sacrifice

    From this back entrance, we'll climb up to the High Place of sacrifice with sweeping views of the Royal Tombs.

  • 3

    Wadi Farasa

    Afterward, you will pass many sites including, the Renaissance Tomb, the Soldier Tomb, and then finishing at the Colonnaded Street in the Ancient Roman City in the heart of Petra.

  • 4

    Free Exploration

    From the center of Petra, you will have free time to further explore the magical site on your own or head back to enjoy the cave bar or get some rest. You can head back down along the street of facades and the main trail, or for the adventurous, there are several good options to explore - including Jabal Khubtha, Um Bayyara, and more!
