Even if you weren’t able to make it to Jordan for AdventureNEXT Near East, the Adventure Travel Trade Association (ATTA) invites you to enjoy it vicariously. The social feeds are in full tilt now, showing delegates adventuring throughout Jordan and digging into the business side of adventure travel. Won’t you join us?
Here are a few ways to follow along with AdventureNEXT Near East, which is happening now on the shores of the Dead Sea.
- Delegates are using the hashtag #ANEXTNearEast to post photos and updates from their Pre-Adventures and the event, which began 15 May.
- We’ve already shared several live videos from select sessions. Head to the ATTA Facebook page to catch up.
- ExOfficio outfitted a Pre-Adventure, and we sent along two of our storytelling team members to document the gear being used in the field.
- We’ll continue sharing AdventureNEXT Near East photos, videos, and updates, so be sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
We hope you’ll be able to join us in action next time, but until then, take some time to look through the stunning photos, watch fun video footage, and pick up a helpful tidbit or two from the educational sessions.
JORDAN IS WILD⛺️ Although I’m here in Jordan working, this has been one of the most fun and equally physically challenging travels I’ve been on in this year. We spent the last two nights camping in the desert – last night I particularly loved the three sided vista campsite in the Mountains of Sleibat in Wadi Rum that presented us with the most magical golden hour and sunset, and then again first light before our 4 hour hike this morning to Jordans highest peak -Um Addami – at 1830 meters. P.s. The temps hit 40 degrees Celsius today?? There’s something so special about laying under the stars, sitting around the campfire drinking hot sweet tea, and really disconnecting from the world and connecting with new friends. Thanks @terhaaladventures for this incredible experience. GEAR ALERT: @TetonSports sent me on this trip with one of their sleeping bags (I already use their daypack when hiking). Loved it! Especially the little cellphone pocket incase I needed to set my alarm for early morning hikes. Check them out if you have any upcoming camping/hiking trips. ? @fredrik_bye . . . . . . . #camping #campingvibes #thetravelwomen #womenwhoexplore #tetonsports

A caravan of camels passed us in Wadi Rum, a protected desert wilderness in southern Jordan. Lawrence of Arabia passed through these dramatic sandstone mountains. Stunning landscapes.
