Why we love Jordan
Travel to Jordan to see the Middle East’s quiet achiever hard at work. Small in size but not in stature, the Kingdom of Jordan is enjoying a renaissance of late, so it would be a wise move to check out what all the fuss is about.
On a Geckos tour of Jordan you’ll get to channel your inner Indiana Jones at Petra, dune bash through the Wadi Rum desert, experience extreme saltiness at the Dead Sea, enjoy a night off the grid at a Bedouin desert camp, pretend to be an archaeologist at the Roman ruins of Jerash, and see the old meet the new in up-and-coming Amman.
Oh, and since Jordan regularly throws up white-hot, scorching temperatures, you’ll get to sweat too.
With deserts that go on forever and cities built on the back of centuries of trade, labour and tradition, a trip to Jordan is the ultimate rut-breaker for active travellers seeking to interrupt their lives with a potent dose of mysterious Middle Eastern magic (and a face-melting blast of desert air).
Everyone has the right to feel safe and secure on their trip. We don’t tolerate any form of sexual harassment at Peregrine and Geckos, either between passengers or involving our leaders or local operators. Sexual relationships (consensual or otherwise) between a leader and a passenger are unacceptable. If you ever feel another person is behaving inappropriately please inform us immediately by contacting the emergency contact number detailed in these trip notes.
