Jordan’s participating tour providers, ATTA, and the Jordan Tourism Board could not be more excited to unveil the pre-adventures on offer for AdventureNEXT Near East.
In an effort to showcase the country’s tremendous adventure tourism potential to delegates, selected tour operators have thoughtfully crafted three to six-day itineraries featuring a combination of iconic landscapes and sites, off-the-beaten path places, distinctive experiences, and active adventures available in Jordan.
While celebrated for its vast desert landscapes and the world famous UNESCO site, Petra, Jordan is much more than the sum of these two well-known facts. Join a pre-adventure to actively immerse yourself and discover the depths of Jordanian hospitality, the variety of flavors in its cuisine, the diversity of its landscape, and its adventurous activities.
Pre-Adventures will be available for sign-up beginning on Monday, March 19, 2018. Please take time prior to the 19th to read thoroughly each of the itineraries before selecting your pre-adventure.
Delegates need to arrive in Amman, Jordan (Airport code: AMM) between April 27 and May 4, depending on the start date and time of your pre-adventure. All pre-adventures end on Monday, May 7 by 4:00pm at the Dead Sea, the location of AdventureNEXT Near East.
Register for AdventureNEXT Near East, if you have not already.
Once you register, you will receive a ticket number. Starting on March 19, please book the pre-adventure of your choice using the ticket number emailed to you. Deadline to secure your space on a pre-adventure is Saturday, March 31.
If you have not been selected as a hosted buyer or media, please email: [email protected] to request an adventure. Send your top one to three choices. If space is available after all hosted buyers and media book, we welcome you to join an adventure. You will need to pay the tour operator directly to participate. Prices and contact information are listed in the PDF for each adventure.
Before You Book:
Double check your itinerary start time/date before booking airfare. Some pre-adventures begin early on Day 1, forcing an arrival in Amman and overnight prior to the trip start. Read your itinerary carefully.
Unless you’re an approved buyer or media attendee, you are responsible for your accommodation beginning Monday, May 7.
Hotel accommodations and most meals are provided during your adventure (see inclusions/exclusions in the itinerary PDF).
Adventures have limited space and are available on a first come, first-served basis. They do book quickly, so please consider the timeline below.
Pre-Adventure registration begins March 19. Because adventures will fill quickly and hosted flights will be booked late March, delegates are encouraged to select their adventure as soon as possible once registration for adventures begins on March 19.
Pre-Adventure registration ends March 31
All pre-adventures are subject to change, and in extreme cases, cancellation. If this occurs, the ATTA will work with you to find an alternate adventure.
Jordan’s Tour Providers, ATTA, and the Jordan Tourism Board request that only one staff person per company book the same adventure.
Important Notice: There are inherent risks in the activities offered during the Pre-Adventures and throughout AdventureNEXT Near East. The ATTA highly recommends that all AdventureNEXT participants purchase travel insurance to provide the level of protection and support you require during your involvement at AdventureNEXT and during any Pre-Adventure or post-AdventureNEXT activities. The ATTA encourages delegates to consider purchasing travel insurance with ATTA’s Travel Insurance Partner – World Nomads. Additional ATTA travel insurance and safety/medical member providers include: AIG, Global Rescue, and Ripcord – powered by Redpoint.
