The history of Jordan is extraordinary. Nabateans, Persians, Romans, Umayyads, Byzantines, Crusaders and Muslims have all left their mark. Today, travellers with an interest in history will be enthralled. Bordered by the West Bank and Israel to the west, Jordan offers unique attractions for the visitor: Petra - the rose city, swimming in the Dead Sea, or a walk in the Wadi Rum desert. But there are more remote areas such as the eastern desert which conceals innumerable treasures within its dunes.

Without any doubt at all, Jordan is deeply rooted in history and culture. It has a rich heritage of the ruins of ancient civilisations, archaeological sites and unmissable cultural highlights such as Petra and Jerash. For eight months a year, the sunny climate is ideal for long walks in spectacular countryside. In Aquaba, the country’s only seaside resort, you can try water sports or discover the Red Sea’s incredible seabed.
Routes and distances maps
Pack your bags and head for Jordan! Easy to get to from the UK, flights take around 5 hours. Be aware that your passport is required to have six months’ validity after the date of your arrival in Jordan. It is recommended you keep your passport with you at all times. A visa is also necessary to enter Jordan, although this is free if you book your stay with a Jordanian agency. Once you are there, the size of the country makes getting around easy. However, be wary of Jordanian driving which can be surprising (if not chaotic). Public transport is mainly used by the locals and is not advised for tourists. You can also use private taxis whose drivers might serve as a guide if the price is right.
