A drop in visitor numbers to Jordan has enabled this exceptional tariff for a first time or return visit to Jordan, with the opportunity to visit or revisit the main sites and time for relaxation and independent exploration.
The immortal words of Dean Burgen “…match me such a marvel, save in Eastern clime; a rose-red city, half as old as time” refer to Petra, established in the 6th century BC by nomadic Nabataean Arabs, a key trading post on the ‘Silk Road’. Petra was naturally protected by rock with access only via the main siq.
The Dead Sea is the lowest point on earth, where you can float but not swim! Wadi Rum has stupendous natural landscapes, as featured in ‘Lawrence of Arabia’. Jerash, known as ‘Pompeii of the East’, is the best-preserved Roman city of the Decapolis. Aqaba opens up the natural beauty of Jordan’s Red Sea with a small town, port and marina, surrounded by rugged purplish mountains with temperatures steady around 20°C in the winter months and a water temperature of around 23°C.
