Jordan, so long thought of purely as a historical destination, has finally recognised the potential of its great outdoors and has begun energetically to rebrand itself as an adventure sports destination. In the case of Wadi Rum, this awesome landscape of sheer rock amidst the desert has been adopted as a vast playground for rock climbers, gaining international recognition and inspiring many enthusiasts of the sport to book Jordan holidays for this reason alone.
Likewise, the coral reefs of the Red Sea are enough in themselves to attract scuba divers and snorkellers to the country. Constant improvement and careful management of Jordan’s nature reserves over the past few years means that these are also becoming destinations in their own right and, despite their increasing popularity, are still places where you can get away from the crowds.
For most people, the real beauty of Jordan holidays is that you can combine all these experiences in one visit. The nation’s small size means that all the major highlights of the country can be covered in a short trip, and visitors with more time up their sleeves can fully explore the variety that Jordan offers. Situated slap in the middle of a region characterised by conflict, Jordan is easily the Middle East’s most relaxed country to visit and shines a hopeful light on what the region as a whole can achieve.
The first views of Petra and the magnificent Treasury, hewn from the red rocks, appearing magically before you as you emerge from the Siq are simply unforgettable..

Floating in the Dead Sea and enjoying a refreshing mud bath - great fun and totally invigorating. Stay in a luxury spa or trek from Wadi Mujib and stay at the secluded Mujib Chalets.
