What do the Roman Emperor Hadrian, the Prophet Moses and Lawrence of Arabia have in common?
These are just three of the many historical personalities who passed through Jordan through history, and whose itineraries now attract adventure seekers and holidaymakers from around the world.
Nature enthusiasts have many options in Jordan: The vast, silent drama of Wadi Rum, the forested hills of central Jordan, or the plunging Jordan Rift Valley that includes the Dead Sea – the lowest spot on earth.
The Red Sea resort of Aqaba is always warm, balmy, and enticing for divers and other watersports enthusiasts. Aqaba offers a full range of facilities for speedboating, scuba diving, snorkelling, sailing, fishing, swimming, water skiing, windsurfing, or simply loafing and sunning in the warm crystal-clear waters of the Red Sea.
At 410 metres below sea level, the Dead Sea is the lowest place on earth. Jordan’s Dead Sea coast is one of the most spectacular natural and spiritual landscapes in the world, and it remains as enticing to international visitors today as it was to kings, emperors, traders, and prophets in antiquity.
