Jordan Tours

Jordan

Discover Jordan

Without question, Jordan is steeped in history, with its remarkable cities and revered biblical sites. Moses is said to have guided his people through the arid Jordanian deserts, while Alexander the Great led the way for Hellenistic cities. The Natabeans used the vivid red Petra sandstone to create architectural masterpieces, and the Romans established Jordan as an important trading centre.

The UNESCO-listed city of Petra, named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World, is undoubtedly the jewels in Jordan’s crown. A narrow gorge known as the Siq offers the first glimpse of this red sandstone city, home to the spectacular Treasury, dating back to the 5th century BC, and incredible Roman Ampitheatre, which once held 3000 spectators. Jordan’s capital, Amman, is overlooked by an impressive Citadel, and just a stone’s throw away is the well-preserved Greco-Roman city of Jerash, nicknamed the “Pompeii of the East”.

The cities provide a stark contrast to the natural treasures that Jordan has to offer. Dramatic sandstone and granite formations emerge from the shifting sands of Wadi Rum, a magnificent desert landscape. The beautiful Dana Nature reserve is home to an abundance of wildlife and the sheer sandstone cliffs of Wadi Dana which lead to the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth. This salt lake is a tourist hotspot and its mineral-rich mud is used for therapeutic purposes. From here, you can look across to Mount Nebo, one of the most revered sites in Jordan, as it is where Moses stood and looked over the Promised Land.

Highlights of Jordan

  • Petra

    Petra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has been named one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. John William Burgon described it as “a rose-red city half as old as time”. It was once an important stopping point on the silk and spice trade routes. Today, this red sandstone city is arguably one of Jordan’s top attractions, drawing visitors from all over the world. Incredible sights include the Treasury and impressive Roman Amphitheatre, which once held 3000 spectactors.

  • Amman

    Amman is the capital of Jordan and a city of contrasts, where modern shops and restaurants sit alongside ancient ruins. This white stone city is spread across nineteen hills and overlooked by an ancient Citadel which includes the pillars of the Temple of Hercules. The 8th-century Umayyad Palace is renowned for its magnificent dome, while the 2nd-century Roman Ampitheatre still holds events. The ornate King Abdullah I Mosque with its blue dome and soaring minarets is also worth a visit.

  • Jerash

    Jerash is an ancient metropolis and the best example of a Greco-Roman city in the world. The city was hidden in sand for centuries before being excavated and carefully restored to its former glory. Hadrian’s Arch was built in honour of Emperor Hadrian, and behind it you’ll find the hippodrome which once hosted chariot races in front of thousands of spectators. Those who make the climb to the remains of the Temple of Zeus are rewarded with stunning views.

  • Shobak

    Shobak is a spectacular 12th-century fortress perched high on a rocky mountainside, watching over a barren land. It was built by Crusader King Baldwin I in 1115 and withstood several attacks from the armies of Saladin. There is beautiful Arabic calligraphy on the external walls and inside are two churches. The second church has a Mamluk watchtower and Crusader cross, with catacombs below.

  • Mt Nebo

    Mount Nebo is one of the most revered sites in Jordan as it is where Moses stood and saw the Promised Land. From the summit, there are views of the Holy Land, the River Jordan and Jericho, with Jerusalem often visible on clear days. The Moses Memorial Church sits at the summit and houses some of the best mosaics Jordan has to offer, including one depicting an African hunting scene.

  • Madaba

    The ancient town of Madaba is renowned for its stunning mosaics. The Greek Orthodox Church of St George houses an incredible 6th-century map depicting the Holy Land, while the Madaba Archaeological Park is where you’ll find the Church of the Virgin Mary and a range of Hellenistic, Byzantine and Roman artefacts.

  • Dead Sea

    The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth and almost ten times as salty as the ocean. It was popular with Cleopatra and was one of the world’s first health resorts. The mineral-rich water and mud have been proven to have healing properties.

  • Dana Nature Reserve

    Dana Nature Reserve is the largest nature reserve in Jordan and is home to hundreds of plant species, birds and mammals. It has four different bio-geographical zones – Mediterranean, Irano-Turanian, Saharo-Arabian and Sudanian, making it a truly unique environment. Some species are endangered including the Sand Cat, Spiny Tailed Lizard and Syrian Wolf. The reserve also boasts spectacular scenery.

  • Wadi Rum

    Wadi Rum, also known as the Valley of the Moon, is a vast desert in southern Jordan. It offers majestic sandstone mountains, impressive natural arches including the Burdah Rock Bridge and soaring rock formations, including the Seven Pillars of Wisdom. Canyons and caverns are adorned with prehistoric inscriptions and carvings, while Lawrence’s Spring, a natural watering hole, was named after Lawrence of Arabia. The British soldier supposedly washed here. The Wadi Rum desert was featured in the film, “Lawrence of Arabia”.
