See the best of Jordan with us

All our trips start in Jordan's vibrant capital Amman and we also include a visit to the Dead Sea as well as 2 nights in Petra, giving you lots of time to explore this amazing site. There's an amazing walk through the iconic Siq to enter Petra, and you're bound to stop in your tracks when you first catch glimpse of the Treasury - it's quite a special moment! After a full day at Petra, where the Monastery is another undoubted highlight, we also get a chance to see the Treasury at night when it is beautifully illuminated by candle light. A night camping the Wadi Rum desert, floating in the Dead Sea and a visit to Mt Nebo with amazing views over to Israel are other key draw cards.

Recommended places to visit in Jordan

The world-famous ancient city of Petra is just one reason to visit Jordan with beautifully preserved Roman ruins, other-worldly deserts starring in Hollywood films and remarkable natural phenomena competing for your attention. Here's a selection of our favourite destinations in Jordan.

Aqaba - Red Sea Relaxation

View on map
Sea view | Aqaba | Jordan

While there are so many intriguing historical sites to explore and cultural experiences to be had in Jordan, sometimes all one desires is a little R&R. If this is the case then look no further than the laid-back Red Sea city of Aqaba. Fringed with palm-trees and sandy beaches with gorgeous warm waters brimming with colourful coral reefs, a few days of relaxation here certainly won’t go amiss.

Dana Nature Reserve - Wildlife and trekking

View on map
Looking out at the jebels in Dana

The Dana Nature Reserve is the largest nature reserve in all of Jordan and sprawls across over 300 square kilometres. One of the main features of the park is the ancient village of Dana, which dates back to the 15th century and houses but a handful of residents. Despite its seemingly arid landscape, the Dana Nature Reserve is inhabited by hundreds of species of animal and bird and also boasts an impressive number of different plants.

Dead Sea - Bob Like a Cork

The Dead Sea | Jordan

Whether you fancy bobbing like a cork or lathering yourself with mineral-rich mud on the shore, a visit to the Dead Sea is an absolute must for any trip to Jordan. The rugged coastline and buoyant blue waters of this popular site have been attracting travellers for centuries that come in search of its beauty and healing properties. Wade in and have a read while lazily floating across the horizon.

Madaba - Mosaics and History

View on map
Inside St George's church

A charming town known for its thriving markets and stunning mosaics which date back to the Byzantine era, Madaba is both an interesting and hospitable stop on any Jordan itinerary. Throughout the city there are a number of boutiques and outlets selling tasteful handmade crafts, particularly tapestries and carpets. For those looking to get more familiar with Madaba’s mosaic-related history, the Archaeological Park and Museum is a great place to start.

Petra - The Lost City

View on map
The Siq | Petra | Jordan

Hidden away in a secluded valley amidst the mountainous Jordanian landscape, it is no wonder why Petra was lost to the world for hundreds of years before its rediscovery in the 1800s. With the winding narrow passageway of the Siq, impressive Treasury facade, a beautiful hilltop monastery and numerous other monuments you’ll need at least two days to explore.

Wadi Rum - Wild Desertscapes

View on map
Camel trekking | Wadi Rum | Jordan

Renowned for its sandstone landscape of mountains and valleys, natural arches, towering cliffs, narrow gorges and dramatic ramps and caverns formed over millions of years, the Valley of the Moon is nothing less than spectacular. The best way of experiencing Wadi Rum for yourself is by witnessing the sunset over the vast silent horizon and spending a night under the stars.
