Marianne Grimshaw
Jordan Travel Specialist

On the east bank of the Jordan River, this dry and barren country with scarcely any natural resources of its own has flourished into a diverse cultural hub, rich in ancient history and offering great potential for adventure. In the heart of the Middle East, sprawling modern towns share Jordan with vast nature reserves, arresting ochre desert landscapes, and striking travel icons like ancient Petra and the Dead Sea.

Nabatean Petra and the Roman city of Jerash can be combined with hikes through forested nature reserves, vast craggy gorges and rust-red deserts where towering rocky outcrops rise hundreds of metres from the sands. The variety of experiences available in Jordan seems endless; five-star luxury awaits in hotels overlooking the Dead Sea while humble Bedouin tented camps in Wadi Rum desert provide authentic cultural experiences – and some of the world’s best stargazing opportunities.

Peaceful Jordan has remained a state of calm despite the issues that define its neighbouring countries, and travellers that aren’t put off by the surrounding region’s time in the news are rewarded by bountiful and world-class historic sites – all without the crowds.

Petra
Top Destination
Petra
Undoubtedly Jordan's most iconic sight, the ancient civilisation of Petra, carved by hand into the walls of a canyon, is a must-visit. Attend early at sunrise to be the first visitors to roam the ruins, and again at sunset to experience the Treasury facade illuminated by candles.
Dead Sea
Top Destination
Dead Sea
The Dead Sea is on every Jordan traveller's bucket list. Over 400m below sea level, the water has evaporated from much of this sea to leave behind an incredibly salty body of water, in which you float without trying. The salt and local mud, filled with minerals, is fantastic for your skin.
Wadi Rum
Top Destination
Wadi Rum
Home of the Bedouin people, Wadi Rum is a place for adventure, nature and cultural experiences. Spend your days exploring the vast ochre sand dunes by 4WD and your nights stargazing by the fire at a traditional Bedouin tented camp.
Ajloun Nature Reserve
Marianne Grimshaw's Recommendation
Ajloun Nature Reserve
Off the beaten track slightly, I love visiting Ajloun. Here a landscape unfurls dotted with pistachio and oak trees, overlooked by impressive crumbling crusader castles. Explore Ajoun on our Jordan Eco Adventure Tour.
Dana Nature Reserve
Marianne Grimshaw's Recommendation
Dana Nature Reserve
At Dana Nature Reserve, you can hike through the Great Rift Valley and spend a night either in a cliff-side guesthouse or a tented camp on a parapet overlooking the dramatic scenery - which makes for a very special sunset.

Specialist Recommendations



Regent Jordan Specialist


Marianne Grimshaw
When a country is as diverse, yet as compact, as Jordan is, travellers should be ready to pack as much adventure and culture into their trip as possible. Here it's easy to wake up to the silence of the desert in Wadi Rum, and be making negotiations in a local craft shop in Petra, or even soaking in the Dead Sea before dinner. Short driving distances make it simple to experience the country's greatest treasures in around a week.

Marianne's Tips
1
Hike a stretch of the Jordan trail and explore the landscape by following in the footsteps of Bedouins, Nabateans and Crusaders.
2
Snooze beneath star-strewn skies in a bubble with Jordan roof or a traditional Bedouin tented camp in Wadi Rum.
3
For an unforgettable al fresco meal, join a Bedouin 'barbecue', cooked in an earth oven in the desert.
