Adventure Holidays in Jordan

From spectacular desert landscapes dotted with splendid desert castles, to the verdant Jordan Valley; ancient archeological wonders to bustling souks and cities; busy beaches to the restful waters of the Red Sea, Jordan is a land of extraordinary constrasts. Holidays in Jordan are characterised by the friendliness of the people, who are here are quick to welcome you to their magical country. In their eyes – and who are we to argue –  it's the cradle of civilisation. Indeed, it's the perfect destination for those with a fascination with the past.

On your Jordan holiday, visit the ancient Lost City of Petra, and venture to Wadi Rum where you can camp under magnificent desert skies. Float in the super-salty water of the Dead Sea or dive into the Red Sea in Aquaba. And for adventure lovers, there’s horse riding, 4X4 safaris, cycling and trekking.  

And if you venture on a trip to Jordan with Exodus, you'll be pleased to note that Exodus have upgraded the accommodation used on all tours in Jordan so now all hotels are 3-star rating or above, and we've been working closely with a local Bedouin family to develop a fantastic new desert camp unique to us, located in a remote location in the Wadi Rum. It's available on A Week in JordanPetra & Wadi Rum Trek and Petra & Wadi Rum by Bike.  And our team of local guides has grown. We're pleased to welcome Khalid, Ryadh, Hasan and Salah to the team: between them they have decades of guiding experience and are looking forward to showing you their country...


Or why not try a Tailormade Adventure?

We can tailor almost any holiday to suit you, perfect if you’d like to change the dates, itinerary, or simply want a private adventure with a group of friends, family or fellow enthusiasts. All Tailormade Adventures still get a local guide where appropriate and all the other Exodus benefits. So if you’d like to celebrate your birthday at the top of a mountain, or visit a particular beach, let us know your dates, and we’ll do the rest.

Holidays in Jordan: the highlights 

Jerash: buried under the sand for hundreds of years, Jerash has been carefully excavated: marvel at the Triumphal Arch, unusual Oval Plaza, impressive Temple of Zeus and walk on the original Roman stones of its cobbled streets.

Petra: an ancient city, hidden for hundreds of years after its 3rd century BC Nabataean inhabitants abandoned it. The rose stone buildings were carved directly into the rock and still retain the sense of decadent grandeur they were built to display. The views will take your breath away.

Wadi Rum: used as the backdrop to a number of films, the desert scenery here is astounding. A must-do on adventure holiday in Jordan is take a desert jeep safari into the dunes and bed down there for the evening. Appreciate the changing golden hues of the sand from sunset to sunrise and after dark enjoy the lightshow our galaxy of stars puts on all night long.

The Dead Sea: offering a well-earned relaxation on an adventure holiday in Jordan. Enjoy effortless floating on your back in the thick salty water and let the high mineral content perk up your health and your sense of well-being.
