Voyages Jules Verne

Explore Jordan

Take a tour of Jordan to discover a fascinating cultural heritage and diverse natural wonders. Unearth the treasures of the lost city of Petra; drift away on the surface of the Dead Sea; and uncover the lesser-known gems of this small and surprising country.

The highlight of any visit to Jordan is Petra. Its rich historical past, ruined Roman cities and desert citadels are Jordan's most valuable treasures. Points of interest are bountiful and include the Street of Façades, the Royal Tombs, a Byzantine church and the incredible, ancient Qasr el-Bint Faroun.

If you’re interested in exploring the biblical themes of Jordan, you could visit Umm Qais was Gadara, where Jesus gave permission to the evil spirits to enter a herd of pigs, or view the baptism site of Jesus at Bethany, the mosaic of ancient Palestine at Madaba and Mount Nebo. Whatever your faith, the prosperous biblical sites of this country can have a profound impact.

Red, dusty scenes and arid deserts: this is a common perception of Jordan’s landscape. See it for yourself and you’ll discover majestic peaks, vast valleys and the unique Dead Sea – the lowest point on the earth’s surface surrounded by a protective, rugged, mountainous terrain where you can bathe in the highly saline waters infused with minerals and health enhancing mud.
