The Best of Jordan

Jordan

Jordan is a surprisingly easy country to get around, and it’s possible to see all the main sights in one trip. Explore desert lands and ancient kingdoms on this magnificent journey where you’ll stay in supreme comfort.

Dose up on cultural heritage with an exceptional guide and see some awe-inspiring landscapes stopping at Amman, the rock-hewn city of Petra, the shifting sands of Wadi Rum and soaking in the curative waters of the Dead Sea.

Amman

You’ll be cocooned in luxury at your first stop, the hilltop Four Seasons Amman but be sure to explore the maze-like streets of this cosmopolitan city. Learn about Jordan’s history at the Jordan Museum and visit the impressive Roman Amphitheatre. By night, the city comes to life in stylish bars and elegant restaurants serving refined Middle Eastern cuisine.

Petra

Heading south along the ancient King’s Way you will visit Petra, one of the most mysterious sights in the world, located within steep-sided gorges. Stop on your way at Kerak Castle and admire this Crusader stronghold that dominates the desert landscape. The next day, rise early to visit Petra with a personal guide and explore the ‘pink city’ which was built from 800 BC by the Nabatean Arabs.

Wadi Rum

Take a moment to appreciate the solitude within the ever-shifting dunes of the desert wilderness at Wadi Rum, just over an hour from Petra. Enjoy watching the sun slide behind dunes and the inky night sky reveal twinkling stars as you bed down in a traditional yet luxurious Bedouin-style private tented camp for a night in the desert.

Dead Sea

For your final stop, soak in the pleasures of the Dead Sea, where relaxation can be found floating on the high mineral content water. Kick back at the five-star Kempinski hotel in a suite or royal villa on the hillside of this luxurious residence which has scenic views over the Dead Sea and contemplate the varied landscapes of your trip to magnificent Jordan.
