When I was 18, I decided to leave Germany for Australia. After a few years of globetrotting, I decided to move to Jordan. During my first time in this beautiful country, I lived and worked in Aqaba. But as it gets pretty hot there, I decided to relocate to Amman, the quirky capital of Jordan. I love living in this city, as there is way more to discover than what's written in travel guides. In my free time, I like to travel through Jordan myself, trying to find places off the beaten track, which I like to integrate into my itineraries.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Every change I get, I travel through Jordan to revisit places and keep myself up to date. I specialise in hiking and adventure holidays, responsible tourism as well as trips that involve getting to know the local Jordanian cuisine. All itineraries I make are customized. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"I love travelling and I have travelled all my life. Eventually, I ended up studying Tourism Management, with the aim of turning my passion into a career. I came to Jordan on what was supposed to be a 6 months internship, fell in love with this amazing country and decided to stay. Ever since, I have been working in Jordan's tourism industry."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"Working on a music festival in Malawi was definitely one of the most unique experiences, as well as sitting on a beach in Thailand!"

Cycling the Jordan Bike Trail

There is perhaps no better way to get "off the beaten path" in Jordan than to walk or ride the trails that traverse its spectacular landscapes and diverse communities. The Jordan Bike Trail takes you behind the scenes and away from the crowds, on a challenging and rewarding journey from ancient Greco-Roman ruins in the north to refreshing Red Sea waters in the south. Here are some tips to get you started.

How Many Days Should You Spend in Jordan?

Jordan is a compact country, roughly the size of Ireland, with more than its fair share of must-see sites. Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea are all world-renowned attractions and are located within just a few hundred miles of each other. This, combined with the fact that Jordan’s roads are of excellent quality, means that it’s possible to see all of Jordan’s top spots in about 3 days. This doesn’t mean that we recommend spending 3 days only, since there is a lot more to see, and the top sites are worth spending more time at than just a quick visit.

Our trip to Jordan was great. Lena created a perfect itinerary for us and she included in it everything we wanted. Even if we changed our requirements a lot of times and we booked our trip at the very last minute, Lena was very patient, responsive and understanding.

We didn't have any problems. and our driver was very funny, professional and friendly. The price was very good as well. Highly recommended!

The only thing that I would change is the 4-hour 4x4 Jeep Tour that we had in the desert. We really enjoyed that tour, but the car was not even close to a Jeep. It was an old vintage car, which caused us some headache.
