Persian hospitality. Quilted desert. Raw civilisation. Rulers have come and gone in Jordan, but their ambitions will always be carved into its cliffs.
Those that visit Jordan are blown away by its poetry. From the crests of its desert dunes to the dance of its palm trees, Jordan has a rhythm that enchants foreign adventurers.
Beyond the dry sands of Wadi Rum, the meadows in the north of Jordan are deserted of visitors. There, Roman citadels stand still in peace and quiet.
Is Jordan safe to visit?
Jordan is a haven of peace in the Middle East. Miles away from the Hollywood scenes of Lawrence of Arabia, it is a hospitable country that opens its arms to those who visit it.
The country’s economy is geared towards tourism, and the government is making travel to Petra as comfortable as possible.
Things to do in Jordan
Visit Petra’s little brother. Charmingly named ‘Little Petra’ is detached from the crowds that horde the Treasury. Some think that it was built as an elaborate caravanserai for nearby Petra, while others have different theories. We’ll let you decide.
Scuba diving in the Red Sea. In its gin-clear waters, the Gulf of Aqaba’s vibrant colourful reefs are a sight to behold. On our Jordan tours, you can strap on a snorkel and see it for yourself.
Go on a desert expedition. The red sands of Wadi Rum belong in a science fiction novel. It’s even been earmarked by the director of Dune as a filming location for his upcoming picture.
Embark on a Silk Road tour
Jordan is only a five-hour flight away from London. That means that you can sleep in a Bedouin camp on the same day that you leave the Heathrow departure lounge.
Whether you want to visit Jordan on a cultural tour, desert trek or mountain-bike expedition, we can organise an adventure for you. If you’re interested in visiting Jordan on a tailor-made tour, why not get in touch?
