Join us on a holiday to Jordan

Discover the holy land of Jordan, an ancient place deep-rooted in biblical traditions and history, where the past seems to seep into the present.

Spread out on the east bank of the Jordan River, at one of the historic crossroads of Asia, Africa and Europe, Jordan shares land borders with five countries. Saudi Arabia lies to the south and the east, Iraq to the north-east, Syria to the north, and Israel and Palestine to the west. The country is landlocked except at its south-western corner, where there is a 16-mile coastline on the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea.

From dramatic desert landscapes and nature reserves to Crusader castles, ruined Roman cities and Biblical landmarks, Jordan is a country full of history and phenomenal contrasts. Take a holiday to Jordan and discover its treasure trove of ancient wonders.

Discover the astonishing ruins of a by-gone civilisation in the lost city of ‘rose-red’ Petra, with its First-century tombs and temples carved into the pink sandstone cliffs. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, Petra was the ancient capital city of the Nabataean people.

Almost due north of Petra, rising to the east of the Dead Sea, lies Mount Nebo, the resting place of Moses. From here, you can enjoy stunning views of the Jordan Valley, the Dead Sea, Jericho, Bethlehem and the distant hills of Jerusalem.

On the north-eastern side of Mount Nebo, in complete contrast to the silent city of Petra, still-youthful Amman awaits atop its many hills, overlooking wondrous Roman ruins, modern mosques, buzzing souks and lively cafes. Take a visit to the majestic Citadel, where you can enjoy panoramic views of the city. See the remnants of the temple of Hercules and its pillars, and be sure to visit the Jordan Archaeological Museum, which houses artefacts dating from prehistoric times to the 15th Century.

In further contrast, this time to Jordan’s cities, the nation’s two (also contrasting) seas provide peaceful surroundings for relaxing and swimming. Go snorkelling and enjoy the kaleidoscopic coral reefs of the Red Sea, or unwind at a Dead Sea hotel, where floating effortlessly in the super-buoyant, extra-salty waters is one of the strangest sensations of any holiday to Jordan.
