Jordan: Ancient And Natural Sights

Throughout antiquity, Jordan lay at the heart of the ancient world. Across these biblical landscapes, the armies of the Greeks and the Persians, the Romans and the Crusaders influenced some of the most pivotal moments in the history of the Middle East. This comprehensive journey spans a rich mix of natural and cultural highlights, from Crusader castles and Roman cities, to desert oases and towering dunes.

A chance to explore the rich history of the Jordanian capital is followed by a visit to the fortress of Qa’lat Al Rabat and the spectacular Greco-Roman remains of Jerash. Travelling down the famous Kings’ Highway, you then take in the contrasting spectacles of the Crusader castle at Kerak and the beautiful and remote landscapes of the Dana Reserve.

Continuing on to the famous ‘Rose Red’ city of Petra, you’ll have time to explore its remarkable rock-cut temples, before heading by 4WD vehicles through the haunting desert landscapes of Wadi Rum and on to Aqaba.
