Suzanne Al Houby – first Arab Woman to summit Everest, first Arab Woman to climb the Seven Summits, and our co-leader on 7 Wonders of Jordan & Petra Tour!

I’m thrilled to announce that  Suzanne Al Houby will be co-managing our 7 Wonders of Jordan and Petra tours in 2019! Suzanne is an inspiring woman, a force of nature, and an expert on the region and Jordan. She will be bringing her vast knowledge and understanding of Jordan and the Arab region to this tour, as well as her unique perspective as a woman in the region forging new territory and breaking down boundaries.

Suzanne is the first Arab Woman to summit Everest & first Arab Woman to climb the Seven Summits. She is an environmentalist, a humanitarian and an explorer with a set of values that define integrity for her. “ It is never about greed, fame or even the summit, it is about doing the right thing in a world that has a significant number of people losing sight of what is important,” Suzanne explains.  

Her favorite quote is “it is easy to be inspired, but it is not so easy to act.” Initiatives and projects that can be described as daring and innovative have one thing in common – they overcome adversity. She was told that she couldn’t do it! She did and that is what Suzanne Al Houby is all about. In addition to being the first Arab Woman to climb and summit Mt. Everest, the highest mountain on earth at 8850 meters on May 21, 2011; she is also the first Arab Woman to climb all Seven Summits. She is the first Arab woman to climb Mont Blanc ( 2 times), Elbrus ( 3 times), Aconcagua ( 2 times), Vinson & Denali ( 4 times), in addition to Kilimanjaro ( 10 times) and Toubkal the highest mountain in North Africa. She has visited more than 100 destinations worldwide, carried a backpack half her weight and camped in extreme conditions.

I’m so happy to welcome Suzanne into the ArchaeoAdventures family and thrilled to be partnering with her in Jordan.
