Travel to Jordan and explore the ancient temples, mosques, churches, mysterious ruined cities and romantic desert castles.

At the cross-roads of east and west Jordan is a treasure trove of historic and religious sites, with ancient temples, mosques, churches, mysterious ruined cities and romantic desert castles. Luckily the country is small enough for visitors to reach many of the major sites with ease. Jordan’s capital, Amman, is one of the world’s oldest continually inhabited cities, filled with ancient treasures and ruins.

Visit the mesmerising Roman Theatre, the enchanting Citadel, and walk down the colonnaded streets of the Greco-Roman ruins of Jerash. Petra is undoubtedly Jordan’s crown jewel. Walk down the narrow siq to gaze upon the magnificent Treasury and explore the winding roads and hills of the ancient red-rock city. Undeniably beautiful, the desert of Wadi Rum is a fascinating landscape to traverse, whilst the salt-rich waters of the Dead Sea provide the perfect place to unwind and relax.

Jordan Overview

Why Jordan: Jordan is best known for the remarkable city of Petra, however there are so many other fascinating sites. Some of the country’s best sites can be found in Amman, its capital, including the Roman Theatre, and Citadel, whilst the incredible Roman ruins of Jerash are a must-see. The deserts of Wadi Rum are incredible to explore, as is famous crusader castle, Kerak, whilst floating in the salt-filled Dead Sea is a truly unique and bizarre experience.

Climate: Like many of its Middle Eastern neighbours, Jordan has a hot, dry climate; with long, hot, dry summers and short, cooler winters. Its climate is influenced by both the Arabian Desert and the subtropical humidity of the Mediterranean. The hottest time of year is between June and September where temperatures average between 32-35°C during the day. December, January and Febburary are the coolest months with temperatures in the mid-teens.

Combine with: In the central Middle East, Jordan is surrounded by a number of other fascinating countries including Israel and Egypt. Our 15 Day Egypt & Jordan tour (page 6 & 7) visits all the major sites and explores both these destinations in detail.
