Whooda thunk it? The awesomeness of Jordan is really too much to mention here, but just to give you a taste think classical ruins, folky bedtime stories and the weirdest dessert you’ve ever seen.
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, perhaps experience extreme saltiness at the Dead Sea, enjoy a night off the grid at a Bedouin desert camp, go out on your own and 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).
What people say
Jordan is an amazing country, book extra days there as the tour will not be long enough. In particular Wadi Rum is a lifetime highlight for me.
