Responsible Travel

At Terhaal we realize the importance of responsible travel and the effects it has on the local culture, the community and the environment.

During our trips we plan and take advantage of opportunities for interaction with the locals.
Our guides provide adequate briefing about the local culture, including habits, gestures and showing appreciation and respect.

In order to support the local communities and contribute to improving their well being, we try to maximize the utilization of the services and products of the local community in the area being visited.

Protecting the environment and ecosystems visited is sacred to us at Terhaal.

Our trips are only organized with small groups to minimize the strain on the eco system being visited.

Our guides ensure that our clients are made aware of best practices to protect the environment, in addition to provide info about the local environmental challenges and how to contribute to their alleviation.

Our Story

Terhaal means ‘to be in a state of constant travel’ in Arabic and refers specifically to the nomadic lifestyle of Bedouin Arabs.
The Bedouins, like most indigenous peoples, are renowned for a lifestyle that is in total harmony with nature and in Terhaal we strive to remain true to that ethos.

The idea of Terhaal came about when a young Jordanian couple, who spent most of their free time exploring and wandering through beautiful Jordan, went Canyoning for the first time in 2005. The next day they quit their Jobs and signed up for a training course that would set them on the path of becoming Canyoning guides.

Guiding people through the many gorges of Jordan eventually led them to decide that they wanted to share these natural treasures with visitors who prefer to stray off the beaten path.

Together with two other friends they started an Adventure travel company that would introduce travelers to the true face of Jordan.
