Traversed by the great trade routes, Jordan has many wonderful things for visitors to see and do. Exploring Jordan you will return home with unforgettable experiences. Here are just a few.

Camp out in the Desert

If you were mesmerised by the red coloured rocks in Lawrence of Arabia then Wadi Rum is a must see destination in Jordan. Located deep in the Jordanian Desert, Wadi Rum is a beautiful place to explore with a guide. Camp out in a traditional Bedouin tent, ride a camel across the desert, and gaze up at the starry night after storytelling around a campfire.

Explore Petra

One of the most iconic sights in Jordan, no one forgets their first glimpse of Petra as they walk down the narrow Siq. Built by the Nabateans, the rose red city attracts visitors from all over the world who gaze at the magnificent Treasury. Take time to look closer at the other archaeological wonders in Petra too such as the Street of Facades, the High Place of Sacrifice, and the Sanctuary.

Visit Jerash

The Roman city of Jerash with its amphitheatre, colonnaded road, and arches is another stunning historic site in Jordan. Walk through the ancient ruins and watch the sunlight on the Temple of Artemis. You can wander through the Hippodrome too and the Cardo Maximus at this lesser known attraction during your Jordan holidays and tours.

Mosaics in Madaba

The Red Sea is famous for its diving and snorkelling sites and there are lots of small boats here you can go out and swim off the reefs. It is a wonderful way to see some of the fish and the vibrant colours underwater. Enjoy a day out on the water where you can see four countries from the sea- Israel, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and of course Jordan.

One of the best bits of Jordan are the people and there is nothing like local hospitality to make you feel most welcome in this beautiful country.
