The fascinating country of Jordan has a plethora of opportunities for adventure, making it the perfect destination for those wanting to add a bit of excitement to their holiday. The landscape is full of incredible sights, so if you want to get out and about Jordan style, you can take part in all sorts of activities from diving to cycling to hiking; all the while absorbing the unique history, archaeology and spectacular desert landscapes.
CANYONING IN JORDAN
There are many areas of hidden landscape that wind down from the Wadi Desert into the Wadi Araba. If you are in search of a thrill, exploring this secret world of rock formations, flowing streams and waterfalls through the eroded sandstone will be the ultimate adventure. Let us arrange a trip for you through these canyons; it could be anywhere from the hot springs of Wadi Ibn Hammad to the stunning Wadi Mujib. You can hike, scramble, wade, abseil, jump and climb through ravines, and enjoy a totally exhilarating experience.
Diving in the Red Sea is a truly special experience; you will dive in crystal clear waters surrounded by beautifully coloured coral and fish, and explore the abundance of local marine life. We can arrange a diving outing for you with instruction or a guide, and you will enjoy calm and warm waters, with temperatures varying from 19 degrees in winter to 26 degrees in summer. Diving is shore based (rather than from boats) as Aqaba has a fringe reef along the shoreline.
HIKE TO PETRA
While there are many varying levels of hikes and walks along stunning trails all over Jordan, the hike to Petra is one for the more adventurous traveller. Voted by National Geographic as one of the 15 best hikes in the world, the trek to Petra will take you five to six days through some of Jordan’s most remote and beautiful landscapes. On the trek you can really experience Jordan; imagine camping under the stars, discover endless flora and fauna, learn how to cook and eat traditional Jordanian cuisine and, on your final day, reach Petra. Entering a way to the usual main gate, you will get a unique view of this breathtakingly beautiful landmark, one of the ‘New Seven Wonders of the World’.
HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE OVER THE WADI RUM
Add a new perspective to your trip to Jordan with a hot air balloon ride over the Wadi Rum desert, which is known for its weather-beaten landscapes and spectacular rock formations. We can arrange a private ride over the desert, where you will get a unique and memorable view of this stunning land.
