why travel solo to jordan?
Otherworldly. A term that gets thrown around with ease in the world of travel. When it comes to Jordan’s lunar landscapes though, no other word will quite suffice…
Beyond Jordan’s artistic and surprisingly bohemian capital of Amman, the landscapes of Jordan unfold to reveal yet more surprises. Vast mountains, red rolling dunes, salty seas, and stunning archeological sites; travel in Jordan will prove to be a series of moments spent in awe.
First, Wadi Rum. Jordan’s famed desert region and an area of outstanding beauty that’s punctuated by dramatic sandstone formations. Watch as the dunes turn a deep red under the rising sun with an early morning camel ride on our Jordan tour. Next – the Dead Sea, where you’ll float weightlessly at the lowest point on earth. A memorable travel story if there ever was one.
And then, of course, there’s Petra. Nothing will quite prepare you for the effect this ancient structure, carved into the face of a rock, will have on you when you first see it. With Petra, no pictures ever really do it justice (and there are some great photos out there).

Top places to visit in Jordan
Jordan’s top sight is undoubtedly Petra, an ancient Nabatean city carved into the pink sandstone cliffs. Uncover the ancient city by candlelight, with the atmospheric strings of live Bedouin music providing the perfect soundtrack.
Striking red dunes and jagged peaks provide the backdrop to one of Jordan’s most spectacular landscapes. Our desert experience will see you navigate this lunar terrain by jeep, before bedding down under open starlit skies.
A beautiful canyon through which the Mujib River flows into the Dead Sea, Wadi Mujib offers rugged adventures spanning hiking, canyoning and hot spring bathing. Glide down its waterfalls and scramble up ravines on our Jordan adventure.
The Dead Sea
A bathing experience like no other, floating in the Dead Sea is both serene and surreal: the incredibly high salt content of the water makes it impossible to both swim or sink. Round off the experience with a mineral-rich mud bath.
