Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

For a small country, Jordan has an extraordinary range of climates. The best time to visit climate-wise is in spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November), when the daytime temperatures aren't too extreme. April is probably the best month, when temperatures are warm and wildflowers are in bloom. March can be cold and rainy in the north but is balmy by the Gulf of Aqaba and the Dead Sea.

Insider's View

The ideal October Half Term get away and perfect for a week away.

Try your hand at Arabic cookery at Petra Kitchen - great fun for all the family.

The most exciting introduction to Petra is by candlelight at night, walking along the siq to the Treasury.

Itinerary

This short and action packed family adventure to Jordan is the perfect opportunity to mix soft adventure in a country that stimulates the imagination and offers so much more than a week in a beach hotel.

  1. Days 1-3: Amman

    Small in size but undeniably charming, Jordan offers the perfect getaway for families. Your journey begins in the capital, Amman, where you can orientate yourselves with an informative walking tour with your friendly guide, visiting locations such as the Roman Theatre and the Citadel, offering the chance to learn about the city’s heritage and customs.

    Accommodation: The Four Seasons Hotel Amman (2 nights)

  2. Days 3-5: Petra

    You will then drive the 3.5 hours to Petra, which was made famous in ‘Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade’; an essential for pre-vacation viewing to get children into the spirit of adventure! Accompanied by your local guide, wind your way through the Siq, past the Treasury and into the main site, where the dramatic vistas, colorful caves and mysterious temples are sure to engage the whole family.

    Accommodation: Movenpick Resort Petra (2 nights)

  3. Days 5-6: Wadi Rum

    You will then drive another hour and 45 minutes out to Wadi Rum, where you will journey by 4x4 into the desert, stopping off at sand dunes where children (and parents) can enjoy the wonderful sensation of dune running! After watching sunset in the desert, you will drive to your camp where your family will spend the night under the stars.

    Accommodation: Wadi Rum Desert Camp (1 night)

  4. Days 6-8: Dead Sea - Jordan Side

    A final 3.5-hour drive takes you to the conclusion of your journey, finishing at the shores of the Dead Sea, the lowest point in the world and famous for its incredibly buoyant salty water. We recommend the Kempinski Ishtar here, a hotel which has a kid’s club, tennis courts and 9 swimming pools. It is the perfect end to an action packed and memorable week away.

    Accommodation: Kempinski Hotel Ishtar Dead Sea (2 nights)

Experiences

  • Amman Walking Tour

    Visit Amman's Roman Theatre, Byzantine Basilica and the Citadel and Ummayyad Palace during a walking tour of Jordan's capital city. During the tour you will also be able to take in the varying architecture and bustle of Amman's downtown area.

  • Floating in the Dead Sea

    Floating in the Dead Sea is a rather extraordinary experience, and a must-do when visiting Jordan. This is one of the few cases where pictures really can be believed, and it is possible to float practically on the surface of the mineral-rich water.

  • Jeep Ride in Wadi Rum

    Wadi Rum offers stunning vistas, wide open spaces and fascinating natural rock structures. You will have a one-hour jeep ride here to visit the Khazali Canyon, the rock bridges, Lawrence of Arabia's house and ancient Nabataean inscriptions.

  • Tour of Petra with a Local Guide

    A two-hour tour of Petra with a private local guide which will include a walk through the Siq before moving to the Treasury (El Khazneh), the intricately carved Royal Tombs, Street of the Facades and finishing at Qasr al Bint.
