Half Day Hike
Interested in exploring the area on foot but don’t have a lot of time? Try out a half day hike.
Um Qais is situated on a hill, and there are trekking routes on either side that have breath-taking views of the surrounding landscape. Hikers can choose trails that boast beautiful views of the Jordan Valley, the Sea of Galilee, the Golan Heights and/or the Yarmouk Nature Reserve. The half-day hike is a 2-3 hour adventure into the surrounding environment. Talk to us about finding a route that suits your preferences best. Routes that run through the Yarmouk Protected area are subject to an additional fee of 2.5 JD paid directly to the Royal Society for the Conservation of Nature.
We recommend bringing the following on your trek:
- Day Pack
- Snacks – we’ll provide some snacks, but you might want to bring along some of your own; nuts and dried fruit are particularly good hiking snacks
- Sun protection – sunscreen, SPF lip balm, hat, long-sleeved shirt, lightweight scarf or bandana
- Warm fleece or sweater – fall through spring
- Waterproof jacket or poncho – fall through spring
- Camera and/or mobile phone
- Passport or other ID
