Dramatic red rock canyons, endless stretches of desert, grand mosques and UNESCO sites: if you’re looking for a foray into the Middle East, Jordan ticks all the boxes when it comes to culture, scenery and adventure.
This 7 day itinerary is the perfect introduction to Jordan for first-timers, which starts off in the capital Amman where modern skyscrapers are surrounded by crumbling ruins and relics dating back to the Stone Age.
The highlights of any visit to Jordan are undoubtably Wadi Rum and Petra, a lost city where crumbling ruins tower overhead and the arid desert landscape sweeps out as far as the eye can see.
Take a dip in the Dead Sea, and relax in the seaside city of Aqaba where rows of luxury yachts await to whisk guests out into the Red Sea. An incredible way to explore the country is by cycling along the Jordan Bike Trail, a 730 kilometre route that navigates the country from north to south.
