Things to Do in Jordan

Jordan is an archaeologist and historian’s paradise. Just outside Amman is Jerash, which has been around since the Bronze Age, and is one of Jordan’s most impressive sites. Your guide will walk you through the endless columns and ruins while educating you on everything from the mosaics to the hippodrome that have been rediscovered after centuries of being buried under sand.

Things to do

Petra, a UNESCO world heritage site, is of course the crème de la crème of Jordan. There is a huge amount to see in this ancient Nabatean Capital, as you walk through the stone canyon towards the Treasury, you will feel like you have been transported to another world. For those who are more active then there are fantastic hiking routes up to the high place of sacrifice where you can gaze down on this ancient city. The Monastery is also a must visit, at the other end of Petra there are a lot of steps to get there but the views and sweet tea at the end is worth the strain. For those looking to get off the beaten track then our experts would be happy to advise and suggest experiences and sites for the more discerning adventurous traveller, there are plenty on offer in Jordan.
