Carved from reddish sandstone 2,000 years ago, the tombs and temples of Petra are among the most beautiful remnants of the ancient world. You may recognize Al Khazneh or The Treasury from the final scene of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Wat is er nieuw

Drive eight minutes to Samarah Mall, a 3-story shopping complex that’s one of Jordan's most popular attractions. You can shop here for local handicrafts and ceramics, and enjoy a meal in one of several fast food outlets.


Floating in the Dead Sea is a joy, but we recommend you wear sandals while in the water. The salt grains on the sea bed are hard and sharp, and any cuts or scratches are likely to sting in the saline water. If in doubt, just consult one our lifeguards.

Absoluut doen

The Dead Sea Panorama complex is a short drive away. It houses a museum and a restaurant, giving visitors the chance to learn about the history and geology of the region before enjoying a meal and magnificent views of the sea and surrounding hills.

Ga niet naar huis zonder

As the birthplace of Christianity, Jordan’s biblical sites draw pilgrims from all over the world. It is said that Moses spied the Promised Land from the summit of Mount Nebo. One popular spot is the Baptism Site of Jesus Christ by the River Jordan.



The Baptism Site

Dead Sea,

Because this site marks the baptism of Jesus by John, and thus the beginning of Jesus mission and indeed the beginning of Christianity it is considered to be one of the three holiest Christian sites in the world, together with Bethlehem (the Church of the Nativity) were Jesus was born and Jerusalem (the Church of the Holy Sepulcher) where Jesus terrestrial mission ended (at least until the Second Coming).

Amman, the capital

Dead Sea,

Amman, the capital of Jordan, is a fascinating city of contrasts – a unique blend of old and new, ideally situated on a hilly area between the desert and the fertile Jordan Valley. The downtown area is much older and more traditional with smaller businesses producing and selling everything from fabulous jewellery to everyday household items which worth a visit.

Jerash the Roman city

Dead Sea,

A close second to Petra on the list of favourite destinations in Jordan is the ancient city of Jerash, which boasts an unbroken chain of human occupation dating back more than 6,500 years. The city's golden age came under Roman rule, during which time it was known as Gerasa, and the site is now generally acknowledged to be one of the best-preserved Roman provincial towns in the world

Mount Nebo and Madaba

Dead Sea,

Just 30km from Amman, along the 5,000-year-old Kings´ Highway, is one of the most memorable places in the Holy Land. After passing through a string of ancient sites, the first city you reach is Madaba, known as the “City of Mosaics." Ten minutes to the west of Madaba is the most revered site in Jordan: Mount Nebo, with the memorial of Moses at the presumed site of the prophet's death and burial place.

Hammamat Ma'in

Dead Sea,

Visitors to the Dead Sea should also take advantage of another nearby wonder, Hammamat Ma’in (Ma’in Hot Springs). The springs are located 264m below sea level in one of the most breathtaking desert oases in the world. These falls originate from winter rainfalls in the highland plains of Jordan and eventually feed the 109 hot and cold springs in the valley. This water is heated to temperatures of up to 63° Celsius by underground lava fissures.

Wadi Al Mujib

Dead Sea,

The Mujib Nature Reserve is the lowest-altitude nature reserve in the world, with its spectacular array of scenery near the East coast of the Dead Sea. The Reserve extends to the Karak and Madaba mountains to the North and South, reaching 900m above sea level in some places. This 1,300m variation in elevation, combined with the valley's year-round water flow from seven tributaries, means that the Wadi Mujib enjoys a magnificent biodiversity that is still being explored and documented today.

Petra, the red rose city

Dead Sea,

Petra, the world wonder, is without a doubt Jordan’s most valuable treasure and greatest tourist attraction. It is a vast, unique city, carved into the sheer rock face by the Nabataeans. Entrance to the city is through the Siq, a narrow gorge, over 1km in length,80m high cliffs. Just walking through the Siq is an experience in itself. The colours and formations of the rocks are dazzling. As you reach the end of the Siq you will catch your first glimpse of Al-Khazneh (Treasury).
