With its warm hospitality, diverse landscapes and rich ancient history, Jordan is a destination that leaves a lasting impression on travellers of all ages who are fortunate enough to explore its treasures.

A standout highlight of any trip to Jordan has got to be the beautiful cuisine. From the beloved falafel and hummus to the hearty mansaf and aromatic maqluba, Jordanian dishes showcase a harmonious blend of ingredients and spices that create a symphony of tastes. The use of spices like sumac, za'atar and cumin infuse each bite with layers of complexity, inviting you to explore a rich culinary landscape that resonates with history and tradition.

What to do in Jordan

Visit Petra

Visiting Petra is a standout experience in Jordan, taking you back in time to a remarkable city carved into rose-coloured cliffs. The Treasury, Petra's most famous building, appears like a magical reveal as you walk through a narrow canyon. The whole city, created by the Nabateans, showcases intricate carvings and grand tombs that paint a vivid picture of their ancient civilisation. The vibrant rock colours and the chance to interact with local Bedouin communities make Petra not only a historic site but a living connection to the past. It's a place that lets you explore, learn and be part of a story that's thousands of years old.

Camel riding through Wadi Rum

Riding a camel through Wadi Rum is a spectacular experience in Jordan allowing you to experience the desert's beauty up close and giving you a taste of how people used to travel across these landscapes. Wadi Rum is a stunning place with golden sand dunes, rugged mountains and unique rock formations that have been shaped by the wind over time.

Sitting on a camel's back as it gracefully glides through the desert, you gain a fresh outlook on the landscape and you can truly embrace the profound serenity of the desert, absorbing the profound stillness that surrounds you. If you embark during moments of sunrise or sunset, the colours and shadows make the landscape even more breathtaking.

This is also a wonderful opportunity to learn from the local Bedouin people. They know the desert well and often lead these camel rides. You have the chance to listen to their captivating stories and catch a glimpse of their unique way of life.
