Welcome to Jordan

With gorgeous diving in the Red Sea, awesome scenic transformations from region to region, and rare pre-Islamic ruins that have survived the test of time, Jordan has a little something of everything. Castles left abandoned by Crusaders from Europe, Roman ruins of antiquity preserved better than anywhere else in the region, and of course, Petra – Jordan’s most renowned sight – the ruins of a civilization that pre-dated all Abrahamic religions, Jordan is an understated paradise for those with a bent towards historical tourism. And that’s not all that Jordan has to offer: with coasts both to the Red Sea and the Dead Sea, as well as nature reserves and mountains of Biblical and Quranic significance, Jordan is a prime destination for those seeking a more ecologically-oriented adventure too. Coupled with the deeply hospitable nature of Jordanians, and a sense of stability that few in the region can boast of, Jordan rewards the casual traveller with much to see.
