Experience some of the most incredible sites in Jordan on this 11-day customizable adventure.
Jordan is a country filled with warm friendly locals, jaw-dropping natural wonders, stunning crusader citadels, and the world re-known archaeological site, Petra. The ancient Nabataean city of Petra is without doubt one of the Middle East’s most spectacular, unmissable sights, battling it out with Machu Picchu or Angkor Wat for the title of the world’s most dramatic ‘lost city’. There are so many more reasons to visit including incredible vistas, delicious local cuisine, amazing hikes, floating in the Dead Sea, ancient Roman ruins, and desert camping to name a few.
