Holidays to Jordan
If you have any fascination with the past, any interest in archaeology or any taste for spectacular desert landscapes, an adventure holiday in Jordan is probably the one for you. It’s also a friendly and pleasant country to travel through. The infrastructure is excellent and the people here are invariably welcoming. The Middle East may be far from peaceful, but you’d never guess that in Jordan.
Adventure Holiday Highlights: Jordan Essentials
Buried under the sand for hundreds of years, Jerash has been carefully excavated. Remarkably, 90% of it is still to be excavated. For now, marvel at the Triumphal Arch, unusual Oval Plaza, impressive Temple of Zeus and walk on the original Roman stones of its cobbled streets.
Petra is the beautiful ancient city that was hidden for hundreds and hundreds of years after its 3rd century BC Nabataean inhabitants abandoned it. The rose stone buildings were carved directly into the rock and still retain the sense of decadent grandeur they were built to display, with high views that will take your breath away.
3 Wadi Rum
There’s a reason Wadi Rum has been used as the backdrop to a number of films – the desert scenery here is astounding. A must-do on adventure holiday in Jordan is take a desert jeep safari into the dunes and bed down there for the evening. Appreciate the changing golden hues of the sand from sunset to sunrise and after dark enjoy the lightshow our galaxy of stars puts on all night long.
4 The Dead Sea
The Dead Sea offers well-earned relaxation on an adventure holiday in Jordan. Enjoy effortless floating on your back in the thick salty water and let the high mineral content perk up your health and your sense of well-being.
