A modern kingdom with an ancient culture, Jordan offers the traveller unrivalled landscapes, magnificent ruins and a traditional sense of hospitality that will guarantee a memorable stay.
This is a land that has been inhabited throughout the centuries by nomads, biblical prophets, merchants of the exotic and conquering armies of Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Crusaders and Ottoman Turks. All have left their mark on the country, from the Nabatean city of Petra, carved from the very rock that surrounds it, to the beautifully preserved Roman city of Jerash, one of the ancient cities of the Decapolis.
Set against the majestic backdrop of Wadi Rum, the haunting deserts so beloved of T. E. Lawrence, Jordan is home to some of the most breathtaking natural beauty in the region. It can also boast the saline waters of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on earth, the spectacular Crusader fortress of Kerak and the site of Mount Nebo, the final resting place of Moses himself.
Following trails that lead back through the centuries, you can camp beneath the stars amongst the dunes of Wadi Rum, wander the cobbled streets of Jerash, or discover for yourself the once lost city of Petra, without doubt one of the archaeological wonders of the Middle East.
