the small hashemite kingdom of jordan is full of big surprises
Not only is it home to the world-famous Nabatean ruin of Petra—made famous by Harrison (or should I say Indiana) riding in on his horse in the last of the Crusades—it also bears witness to many Christian sites, Roman ruins, crusader castles and the Dead Sea. Explore the famous site of Petra and weave your way through its narrow canyons and colourful sandstone. Dine on authentic Bedouin cuisine cooked all day under the sands of Wadi Rum. By the end of your journey, you will have discovered culturally, historically and geographically the wonders of Jordan.
Discover the possibilities:
Venture out on the mystifying Wadi Ghweir, a sacred path that was once the hidden trail to Petra. Follow the King’s Highway south from Madaba to Wadi Dana. Spend a couple of days exploring the many wonders of Petra on foot. We've scoped the best trails and routes to highlight this small country's massive beauty, accompanied by our hospitable and knowledgeable local team, we're sure your discovery of Jordan will be equally as mystifying as ours was.
Jordan Art & Culture
Uncover the secrets of ancient Petra with your local guide and discover the magnificent Al-Deir monastery. Feast your eyes on intricate Byzantine mosaics in the market town of Madaba before meeting with an artist in her workshop. Follow in Moses’ footsteps venturing up the sacred Mount Nebo in search of the Promised Land. Enjoy Bedouin cuisine cooked under the sands of Wadi Rum before cruising over the desert dunes in a 4x4. And at the end of the day, unwind in a Bedouin Camp where breathtaking sunsets, star-gazing and genuine hospitality await.
Jordan Family Adventure
A journey to Jordan is like taking a giant leap back into history—a glimpse into times when camel caravans carried frankincense along legendary trade routes, Crusaders passed through in search of the Holy Land and Roman legionnaires built amphitheatres in the sands. Uncover the history and dramatic landscapes, sleeping in Bedouin tents under a desert sky, exploring the pink-hued majesty of Petra, floating in the Dead Sea and riding camels in the tracks of Lawrence of Arabia.
