Combining history, culture, adventure, nature and faith, Jordan has something for everyone! Embark on a city tour of Amman, the capital of the Kingdom of Jordan. Venture north to Jerash and visit Ajloun to tour the 12th century Saracen Castle, before returning to Amman. Enjoy time at leisure at the lowest spot on Earth, the Dead Sea. Visit the majestic city of Madaba, Mount Nebo, the reputed burial site of Moses. Enjoy a full day to explore Petra. Head to the magnificent moon-like landscape of the Wadi Rum Desert, where you will embark on a short ride in a 4x4 vehicle to explore the valley.
It makes perfect sense that Jordan has a long history of welcoming visitors. After all, it stands at the crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, host to the ancient Greeks, Romans, medieval warriors and now... you.
Where else will you find superbly preserved Roman ruins, dramatic Crusader castles and Christian holy sites? Only in Jordan can you discover the hidden rose city of Petra, the captivating dunes of the Wadi Rum and the exotic waters of the Red Sea and Aqaba.
Modern cities filled with worldly citizens, mountainous regions dotted with small villages, and deserts inhabited by the nomadic Bedouin - Jordan has all this diversity and more. With the cosmopolitan cafes of Amman, the peace of hilltop Dana and the historic treasures of Madaba, you may come to Jordan to see the ruins of Petra, but you’ll leave having encountered so much more.
