Jordan, land of wonders
Explore some of the world’s most treasured UNESCO Heritage Sites and mythical spiritual sites
Explore this ethereal country at your own pace. Begin by winding through the pristine columns, plazas and temples of Jerash, and enjoy breathtaking views of the Jordan Valley from Ajloun Castle, dating back to the 12th Century. Ancient relics and sacred spaces abound, from the towering Mount Nebo to the ancient city of Petra, one of the world’s most treasured UNESCO Heritage Sites. Discover the magical landscape of Wadi Rum, also known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’, and swim or simply float in the Dead Sea amid stunning landscapes.
Discover the ancient city of Amman surrounded by hilly wooded areas and fertile basins, and boasts soaring hilltop temples, beautiful theatres and grand plazas. Ajloun Castle, built by one of Saladin’s generals in 1184 AD to control the iron mines of Ajloun, and to deter the Franks from invading Ajloun, is another unmissable site.
Explore at your leisure Mount Nebo, one of Jordan’s most revered holy sites, and Saint George Church. The Madaba Mosaic Map covers the floor of the Greek Orthodox Church of St. George, the oldest existing Byzantine map of the Holy Land.
On the way to Wadi Rum, the multicoloured, sandstone mountains bid you welcome as you enter Petra, a remote city and one of the world’s greatest archaeological treasures.
Wadi Rum is a stupendous place, also known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’ due to its wide, open vistas and crater-like surfaces.
An no visit to Jordan is complete without a visit to the Dead Sea coast, one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world. To this day, it remains as enticing to international visitors as it was to kings, emperors and prophets in the past.
