After a years hard work lovingly tending to their trees, in late autumn, families in Wadi Musa come together to celebrate the annual olive harvest in Jordan and we want you to join them!
Mid morning you will head into the valleys of Wadi Musa with a local family to experience the olive harvest in Jordan. You will laugh, work and eat together as the sun shimmers through trees who’s roots have been standing for more than 50 years. Your experience of the olive harvest in Jordan will start off with a morning tea that includes fruit and a cup of traditional Jordanian tea, made on the fire. After it’s time to get your hands dirty! Help local families picking their treasures from the trees. It’s hard work but a lot of fun as well!
For lunch you will be invited to sit and enjoy a picnic style lunch, being part of a cultural exchange that you will never forget.
After lunch it’s time for a little more picking before your day of your olive harvest in Jordan will be done. After all of that hard work, you will be rewarded with a small bottle of olive oil.
Once your day of olive harvest in Jordan will be done, your local host will arrange for you to be transported back to your accommodation.
