A destination of escapism, Jordan is a wonderland of ancient discovery. From the healing waters of the Dead Sea to the red sands of Wadi Rum, it is surreal and other-worldly.

POCKET GUIDE TO JORDAN
An ornate maze of caves and tunnels intricately carved into the red mountain rock, the lost city of Petra is a remarkable and impeccably preserved glimpse into life 2,000 years ago. Walk through the narrow siq (canyon) as the city unveils itself. Discover the “Royal Tombs”, hewn into the rockface, housing some of the most enchanting burial places in Petra. With most of the city still left to be discovered, our luxury holidays to Petra are nothing short of awe-inspiring.
Jordan’s capital of Amman is a creation of the 20th-century and a fantastic introduction to the Middle East. The cosmopolitan city centre is a line-up of luxury hotels, ultra-modern buildings, upscale restaurants and boutiques, perfect for a contemporary holiday to Jordan with lashings of distinctive Middle Eastern culture. Get a taste of the city’s past on a tour of the fascinating ruins like the historic citadel, the 8th-century Umayyad Palace and the Temple of Hercules. A visit to the Jordan Museum is a must.
The lowest point on earth, the Dead Sea is a body of intense blue salt water. Some 400 metres below sea level, the Dead Sea’s salt and minerals have long been harvested for their health properties. On the west shore, the jagged Judean Desert rises from Israel. Its eastern shore belongs to Jordan, a coast lined with luxury resorts. Spend days lounging on the shores and bathing in the mineral-rich waters, so salty that you can’t help but float.
The lunar terrain of Wadi Rum, where the sea once cut peculiar shapes into the sandstone, promises an exceptional experience in Jordan. This timeless desert, although virtually untouched by mankind, has been inhabited since prehistoric times. Meet the indigenous Bedouin people as they guide you on desert excursions alongside authentic camel rides, jeep adventures and sand boarding. In the evenings, dine around a campfire and retire to your traditional Bedouin tent or to a bubble tent, perfect for stargazing.
