Jordan

Welcoming Jordan blends ancient culture and historic religious sites with astounding natural wonders View All Jordan Holidays

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.

Jordan Travel Specialist
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.
