Ancient, mystical and magnificent - Jordan is a true standout of the Middle East. In a region plagued with conflict, here lies a safe and stunning sanctuary of dreamlike landscapes, littered with archaeological treasures.
Jordan's striking scenery is the stuff of legend - vast sunbaked sand dunes and dramatic rocky outcrops of sandstone and granite, cool wadis fringed with date palms and hidden cities carved from stone.
Be blown away by the ancient city of Petra, one of the world's great archaeological wonders - a fairytale desert city of rock-cut buildings and monuments, exquisitely carved into the surrounding sandstone cliffs in warm hues of rose, rust and gold.
Experience the stark beauty of Wadi Rum at sunset, exploring by foot, jeep and camel the iconic gorges, cliffs, canyons and rock arches made famous by Lawrence of Arabia; and head to the Dana Nature Reserve to hike the 'Inca Trail of the Middle East' towards Petra, exploring remote canyons and near-vertical gorges and camping along spectacular wadis.
Explore the remarkably well-preserved ruins of Jerash, once a thriving Roman metropolis; marvel at the impressive frescoes and early Islamic architecture of Jordan's ancient Desert Castles; and stand as Moses did atop Mount Nebo, admiring a panoramic view of the Promised Land.
Then relax your travel-weary bones in the mineral waters and therapeutic mud of the Dead Sea; and enjoy the coral reefs, rich marine life and laidback holiday vibe of Aqaba, the jewel of Jordan's Red Sea coast.
Whichever itinerary you choose, you won't regret an adventure into this breathtaking biblical land!
