Jordan Trail

National Geographic rated the Dana to Petra section of the Jordan Trail one of the best multi-day hikes in the world. This is the exact section that we will be hiking! (About 83km = just over 50 miles total).


You’ve seen Petra before, think Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. We will end our hike in this famous UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. (Leather Indy hat not included).

Wadi Rum & Dead Sea

After our long hike, we’ll go on a jeep safari in Wadi Rum followed by our grand finale at the Dead Sea. We will float, we will rub mud on our faces, we will relax in style after a week of hiking. We’ll have earned it!

Jackie is an excellent retreat leader. I went with her on her women's adventure retreat in Ecuador, which she packed full of amazing activities in a gorgeous setting. The experiences she planned were unique, once-in-a-lifetime-level ones! With her trips, Jackie has thought about all the details so you don't have to. The Ecuador retreat was extremely well organized and well-run. Thanks, Jackie, for making my experience in Ecuador so magical!

I traveled with Jackie to Ecuador this year and it was an amazing trip. It was so nice to have all the details managed by one of the best travel professionals in the business, and all I had to do was say yes and buy my ticket. Jackie’s style was organized but not rigid, laid back but not complacent; her leadership approach was perfect for me. The people on the trip with me were similarly magnificent. The choices of venues, guides, and activities were excellent and I felt safe throughout the trip. This trip was so well though out and yet so personal. I felt like I was traveling with good friends. I would recommend this to anyone, and can’t wait to go on another trip with her.

Jackie is such a great trip leader. I went on a ladies retreat to Ecuador with her this month and everything was amazing. There were so many activities planned for us! I am used to planning my own trips, but it was lovely to just let go and trust that Jackie had everything handled. And she really did! Not only is she a great leader, but she is an all-around wonderful human. I just want to hang out with her! So I'm gonna join her on her next adventure to Jordan! Cannot wait!!
