To visit Jordan is to be dazzled by the beautiful desert landscapes of the Middle East.
Jordan, a country located in the Middle East, is a clever blend of environmental beauty and cultural heritage. In Wadi Musa, you can visit the historic city of Petra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, surely the country's most famous attraction. In Wadi Rum National Park, you can camp with Bedouins amidst beautiful rock formations. Mount Nebo to the north rises to 817 metres and offers panoramic views of the Holy Land and the Jordan River. In the capital, you will find the citadel of Amman, a rich archaeological site containing ruins from different periods of history. In the south-central part is the Dana Biosphere Reserve, the largest protected area in the country with several species of plants and animals. In addition to deserts and canyons, Jordan also offers access to the beach. In Aqaba, the country's only port city, several activities such as skydiving or scuba diving can be practiced along the Red Sea. For the unique experience of floating on the water, head to the Dead Sea, located about 40 km from the capital.
