Basic Info:

From the village a good track goes down into the long valley of Wadi Dana amidst splendid sandstone scenery. Follow it pleasantly down the valley eventually arriving at the award winning Feynan Eco Lodge which is in an area of Roman copper mines. If you are not overnighting there, continue down as the valley opens out, reaching Bedouin camps where camping facilities are available. Roman ruins and copper smelting sites not far away. Good sunset spot.


From Feynan Ecolodge, a taxi (12.50JD) can be arranged to take you to the Feinan Reception Center; from there, you can try to find private transportation to nearby Gregra village; from here there are daily buses to Amman (6JD) and Aqaba (3JD). Dana Village can be reached by private transport from nearby Tafila or Qadisiya, which have bus connections with Amman and other major towns. Dana Reserve can help arrange a taxi from there
