Jordan: Active & Adventurous

  • Camels at Wadi Rum

Why is Jordan a great place for an active & adventurous vacation?

There is no shortage of opportunities to be active and adventerous.  Petra is an extraordinary ancient city made for exploring and hiking with a guide and on your own.  Visiting the desert of Wadi Rum is a highlight and not far from Petra.  From Amman, Roman ruins and biblical sights offer day trips as does the Jordanian side of the Dead Sea.  If watersports interest you, there are opportunities for water sports with a stay in Aqaba on the Red Sea.  

What are the top active & adventurous vacations/activities to do in Jordan?

After exploring Petra during the day, experience Petra by candlelight at night or spend a night in the mysterious desert of Wadi Rum. A 4x4 jeep ride and ride a camel while you are there also make for a great day.  Scuba dive or snorkel in the marine rich Red Sea during a stay in Aqaba.  Scratch the surface in Jordan and you will discover even more historical sights.  Exploring Roman ruins and historic biblical sights on a day trip can be done from Amman.  If floating on the Dead Sea interests you, visit the Jordanian side, easily accessible from Amman.
