Jordan’s participating tour providers, ATTA, and the Jordan Tourism Board are excited to showcase the pre-adventures available for AdventureNEXT Near East.
In an effort to showcase the country’s tremendous adventure tourism potential to delegates, selected tour operators have thoughtfully crafted itineraries featuring a combination of iconic landscapes and sites, off-the-beaten path places, distinctive experiences, and active adventures available in Jordan.
At this time, Pre-Adventures are only open to approved buyers and media. Approved buyers and media are hosted on a pre-adventure at no cost.
Other delegates of AdventureNEXT Near East that are not approved buyers or media may sign-up if space is available after all buyers and media have signed-up. If space is available, you need to pay the tour operator directly to participate. Regular delegates (non-Buyer/Media), please email [email protected] if you are interested in taking a Pre-Adventure and indicate up to three choices in order of preference. If space becomes available, we will contact you.
Buyers and media need to arrive in Jordan on the date indicated for each Pre-Adventure. All Pre-Adventures end on Monday, April 1 by 4:00pm in Aqaba, the location of AdventureNEXT Near East.
Approved Buyers who participate in a Pre-Adventure in Jordan are eligible to participate in the Post-Adventure, Palestine – Walking through History. There is space for 15 buyers that can seriously consider including Palestine in their trip development in the region.
Read the itineraries carefully. Make sure you are choosing an itinerary best suited to your interests and abilities.
Have your event ticket number handy. You need it to register for your adventure.
Double check the arrival date in Jordan for your itinerary and make sure you are available to arrive on time.
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.
All 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.
