Adventure Holidays in Jordan

From spectacular desert landscapes dotted with splendid desert castles to the verdant Jordan Valley; ancient archeological wonders to bustling souks and cities; busy beaches to the restful waters of the Red Sea, this is a land of extraordinary contrasts. Jordan holidays are characterised by the friendliness of the people, who are quick to welcome you to their magical country. In their eyes – and who are we to argue –  it's the cradle of civilisation. Indeed, it's the perfect destination for those with a fascination with the past.

On Jordan tours, visit the ancient Lost City of Petra and venture to Wadi Rum, where you can camp under magnificent desert skies. Float in the super-salty water of the Dead Sea or dive into the Red Sea in Aqaba. And for adventure lovers, there’s horse riding, 4WD safaris, cycling and trekking.  

If you choose one of our Jordan tours, you'll be pleased to note that we've upgraded our accommodation options: all the hotels we use are now three-star rating or higher, and we've been working closely with a local Bedouin family to develop a fantastic new desert camp that's unique to us, set in a remote location in Wadi Rum. It's available on the following Jordan tours: A Week in JordanPetra & Wadi Rum Trek and Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike.

Our team of local guides has grown, too. We're pleased to welcome Khalid, Ryadh, Hasan and Salah to the team – between them they have decades of guiding experience and are looking forward to showing you their country...

Highlights of Jordan trips 

Jerash: Buried under the sand for hundreds of years, Jerash has been carefully excavated. Marvel at the Triumphal Arch, unusual Oval Plaza and impressive Temple of Zeus, and walk on the original Roman stones of the cobbled streets.

Petra: An ancient city, hidden for hundreds of years after its third-century BC Nabataean inhabitants abandoned it, Petra's rose stone buildings were carved directly into the rock and still retain the sense of decadent grandeur they were built to display. The views will take your breath away.

Wadi Rum: Used as the backdrop to a number of films, the desert scenery at Wadi Rum is astounding. Taking a desert jeep safari into the dunes is a must-do on Jordan holidays. Bed down for the evening and appreciate the changing golden hues of the sand from sunset to sunrise, and after dark enjoy the lightshow our galaxy of stars puts on all night long.

The Dead Sea: Float effortlessly on your back in the thick, salty water and let the high mineral content perk up your health and your sense of wellbeing – this is well-earned relaxation on an adventure holiday in Jordan.
