What's unique?

Welcome to Jordan, a land of ancient wonders and natural beauty. Nestled in the heart of the Middle East, Jordan offers a captivating blend of history, culture, and adventure that will leave you enchanted.

Step back in time as you explore the rose-red city of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. Marvel at its intricately carved facades and hidden tombs as you wander through ancient streets frozen in time. Be sure to visit the Treasury, an iconic symbol of Jordan's rich past.

But Jordan is more than just Petra. Discover the surreal landscapes of Wadi Rum, a desert wilderness where towering red sand dunes meet dramatic rock formations. Embark on an unforgettable camel trek or spend a night under starry desert skies in a Bedouin camp.

For those seeking natural wonders, head to the Dead Sea, where you can float effortlessly on its salty waters and indulge in mineral-rich mud treatments that leave your skin rejuvenated.

Don't miss out on experiencing Amman, Jordan's bustling capital city. Explore its vibrant markets filled with aromatic spices and colorful textiles, visit impressive historical sites like the Roman Theater or indulge your taste buds with delicious Middle Eastern cuisine.

From ancient ruins to breathtaking landscapes, Jordan promises an unforgettable journey that will transport you back in time while captivating your senses.

Tip: Instead of paying for your visa and entrance fees separately, get the Jordan Pass - even if you only visit Petra, this saves you money.
