Jordan Holidays


Sitting at the crossroads of the ancient world, the desert kingdom of Jordan is blessed with remarkable natural and man-made wonders. A country of great contrasts Jordan offers fascinating ancient ruins, majestic old forts, beautiful desert landscapes and spectacular coral reefs.

Close to the bustling capital of Amman lies Jerash, undoubtedly the best preserved Roman site in Jordan, boasting impressive ceremonial gates, amphitheatres and colonnaded avenues.

The origins of Petra go even further back into antiquity but the Rose Red City has aged gracefully and has to be seen to be believed. Your first glimpse of the Treasury as you emerge from the Siq is a memory that will stay with you forever.

Wadi Rum may well be Jordan's best kept secret; huge mountains rise out of the desert sand like surreal cathedrals with wind as their architects.

Aqaba is an historic port city that is now home to the country's luxurious Red Sea resorts and boasts a mild climate and access to excellent dive sites in the Red Sea, perfect for some relaxation in the middle or at the end of your holiday in Jordan. Equally the Dead Sea has the power to rejuvenate with its mineral rich waters and the resorts offer the chance to unwind and experience a dip in the buoyant salt waters.

  • WHERE TO GO IN JORDAN

    Amman
    The city's bustling downtown area is home to spectacular Roman ruins, ancient palaces and colourful souks. In contrast, upmarket West Amman showcases a more contemporary side with its leafy residential districts, vibrant cafés and trendy bars.
    Petra
    Carved into the rose-coloured sandstone cliff face over 2,000 years ago, the prehistoric city of Petra is, without a doubt, Jordan's most valuable treasure. A visit to the magnificent UNESCO World Heritage 'Rose Red City' is a truly unforgettable experience.
    The Dead Sea
    Located at 400m below sea level, the Dead Sea marks the lowest point on earth. The majestic turquoise lake, lined with sea crystals, has drawn visitors for centuries for the therapeutic qualities of its mineral-rich waters.
    Dana Nature Reserve
    Boasting the greatest concentration of wildlife in all of Jordan, including the elusive ibex, the reserve is best discovered on foot taking in breathtaking scenery, small agricultural villages and ancient copper mines.
    Aqaba
    Jordan's primary beach resort sits at the country's southernmost tip and offers an idyllic setting on the shores of the Red Sea. Spectacular coral reefs hug the coastline and provide some of the best snorkelling and diving opportunities in the world.
    Wadi Rum
    Also known as the 'valley of the moon' this vast desert scape has some of the most stunning scenery in Jordan. Consisting of a series of arid canyons, ravines, towering sandstone outcrops and naturally formed rock bridges, it is a fascinating place to explore.
