Posted on: 26 March 2008 by Gareth Hargreaves

No where but in Jordan can you experience the desert, ancient Rome and breathtaking mountains.

Situated in the heart of the Middle East Jordan has one of the oldest and most colourful of history's in the world. If you are looking for adventure, sun and breathtaking sights JOrdan could be what you are looking for. Journeying by Charter bus, 4WD vehicle or even sometimes on foot, there are number of great travel packages now available. Accommodation ranges from the most basic chalet to the grandest opulence, but whatever your budget Jordan offers some magnificent monuments and scenery.

Romans and Crusaders - Near Amman, you will be able to savour the magical atmosphere of Roman Jerash, with its Forum, colonnaded street and theatres, all surviving an incredible 2,300 years. Heading south via Mt. Nebo, from where Moses looked out over the Promised Land, and the spectacular Wadi Mujib, you’ll pause to see the imposing castle of Kerak – a key staging post for the Crusaders.

Dana Reserve and Petra - Jordan’s best-kept secret – a system of wadis and mountains extending from high plateau to desert lowland. After a morning spent exploring on foot you continue to ancient Petra, one of the Middle East’s most impressive sights. Enjoy a full day at the site then, next morning, explore ‘Little Petra’ and the wonderful canyons that surround it on foot.

Wadi Rum and Aqaba - Breathtaking Wadi Rum opens up before you as you head out in 4WD vehicles into the red desert sands. For a taste of the Bedouin’s unique lifestyle you’ll camp on the valley floor, watching the towering rocks turn from yellow to orange and then purple - an experience hard to beat. Finally you arrive in Aqaba, on the shores of the Red Sea, and have an opportunity to snorkel over colourful coral reefs.
