Uncover ancient history, UNESCO-protected World Heritage Sites and otherworldly landscapes on a bespoke holiday to Jordan. Despite remaining miraculously off the tourist radar, Jordan is home to some of the Middle East’s most stunning sites, including the 2,000 year old city of Petra and the burnt orange dunes of the Wadi Rum desert.
From the capital of Amman (itself a real highlight), many of the country’s major destinations can be easily accessed on one all-encompassing tailor-made adventure. Start by visiting the Greco-Roman city of Jerash whose carefully restored amphitheatre and colonnaded streets mean it is widely regarded as one of the best preserved Roman towns in the world. Further south the iconic and UNESCO-listed city of Petra is a must-visit and is often regarded as the eighth wonder of the ancient world. From the winding gorge that is the Siq, to the majestic sandstone Treasury, everything about this historic city is utterly awe-inspiring.
Continuing a Jordanian holiday will see you next venture into the Wadi Rum wilderness, a vast wind-sculpted landscape so visually stunning it deserves a few days’ exploration from a Bedouin desert camp. Then, to dust off (literally) the holiday there is the world-famous Dead Sea, which is (who knew) actually a lake. The incredibly salty waters here mean you can float on the lake’s still surface while taking in the views from the world’s most low-lying spot.
Finally, if a taste of water has left you longing for more, those with more time might also venture to Aqaba in the far south of Jordan. This relaxed coastal town is home to beautiful beaches and luxury hotels, and offers access to the famously colourful coral reefs of the Red Sea.
