Jordan Experiences

  • Although not the most historic of towns, Jordan’s capital Amman is home to one of the world’s oldest continuously inhabited sites, the citadel. Within these city walls is the stunning 1900-year-old Amphitheatre.
  • For Shopping in Amman you need to head to the souq. Here you will find designer shops, trendy art galleries and plenty of cafés. It is a tolerant and liberal city, having had an influx of Palestinian and Iraqi immigrants over the past few years.
  • Stretching from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, Jordan is perfect for anyone who loves water sports. At the Red Sea you can enjoy world class diving amongst the coral reefs at Aqaba, and in the Dead Sea you can indulge in complete relaxation in the mineral rich waters. You can even coat yourself in the famous mineral rich mud. And don't worry if you can't swim – it's virtually impossible to sink in the Dead Sea due to the salt content!
  • Over 2000 years ago the imposing façades of Petra’s Monastery and Treasury were carved into the rose coloured sandstone. They are a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and arguably the most remarkable site in the Middle East. The awe inspiring scale of these buildings is as extraordinary today as they were when they were discovered 200 years ago.
  • Follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia and see where they shot the film on the hills of Wadi Rum. Live your own Arabian dream on a moonlit tour of this beautiful dessert.
