Make the most of your trip to Jordan
Jordan is a year-round destination, but peak-time for touring Jordan is spring (March-May), when temperatures are still warming up and wildlife is at its finest. Autumn (September - November) is also popular. Both seasons see milder temperatures, making hiking and sightseeing alike more comfortable. Read more details about the best time to visit Jordan.
Top places to explore
In addition to visiting Jordan's top 3 (Petra, the Dead Sea and Wadi Rum), we highly recommend taking the time to experience Jordan more deeply, through activities such as sharing a meal with a local family, staying at a bedouin camp, and trekking through a wadi (desert canyon). Find more ideas here.

The country of Jordan awaits! This itinerary covers most of the major cities of Jordan along with the main experiences, and popular sites that one should see. You’ll experience Jordan’s great history and traditional culture, and enjoy the hospitality of its people.
Jordan is a year-round destination, but there are seasonal weather variations that travelers should be aware of. Spring and fall have the most predictable, pleasant temperatures and are therefore peak travel seasons. Winter tends to be rainy and unpredictable - it even snows in some places. Summer brings hot temperatures, but longer daylight hours allow travelers to use cooler early morning hours to explore Jordan's world-class sights.
From the Rose City of Petra to the shores of the Dead Sea, enjoy nine days of exploration in Jordan and Israel on this comprehensive tour. With a curated focus on the area's most fascinating highlights, you'll hit all of the cultural sights and natural wonders that make this region a timeless and sought-after destination.
Have limited time, and want to see Jordan's highlights in a few days? Experience a perfect snapshot of Jordan's rich history and stunning natural beauty on this 4-day, 3-night journey. This efficient itinerary packs quite a punch, balancing extensive exploration of the ancient city of Petra with a mellow evening camping in the ancient desert of Wadi Rum.
The ancient city of Petra is a sprawling wonderland of ancient architecture. With so many things to see, planning your trip can become overwhelming - so use our expert tips to craft your perfect experience.
Jordan is a compact country, roughly the size of Ireland, with more than its fair share of must-see sites. Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea are all world-renowned attractions and are located within just a few hundred miles of each other. This, combined with the fact that Jordan’s roads are of excellent quality, means that it’s possible to see all of Jordan’s top spots in about 3 days. This doesn’t mean that we recommend spending 3 days only, since there is a lot more to see, and the top sites are worth spending more time at than just a quick visit.
Perfect for travelers ready for a full week of adventure, this 7 day, 6 night itinerary prioritizes Jordan's best-loved landmarks. You'll bask in the beauty of the Dead Sea, take in panoramic views from the temples of Petra, and camp in Wadi Rum's desert wilderness, finally returning home with a satisfying slice of the country's rich heritage.

Dana to petra trek - hiking from dana to petra in jordan - 9 days, Jordan - Jan 1 - Jan 11, 2018
Ibrahim in Jordan was a fantastic guide and Mohammed was a great driver. They worked well together. We like our history so Jerash was fabulous. The hike through Dana Valley also was a highlight as was Jerusalem. Re the design of the trip, the only dud day was the trip to the Dead Sea. The hotel where we had lunch was depressing and the beach was ugly and cordoned off with barb wire.
Petra (and petra in the nght-light up), jeep tour in wadi rum, jerash, mt. nevo,madaba, amman, dead sea canyons, Jordan - Sep 30 - Oct 3, 2017
This was one of the best trips I have been on. So well organised. 5 start accommodation and service. The guide we had was so friendly and helpful. The taxi drivers were friendly and very helpful too. I would recommend this tour and company to anyone who wants the best in Jordan.
Bianca did every she could to get the best tour together for my team. I changed the plan/days multiple times and Bianca continued to help us get the best price and experience out of it.
Dana to petra trek - hiking from dana to petra in jordan - 9 days, Jordan - Sep 24 - Oct 3, 2017
My compliments to all the support staff. From Abdullah our Bedouin guide to all the drivers, cooks and Wilderness Camp workers, they were all very kind, helpful and attentive to our comfort and safety
As for me, being an older, slower and more deliberate hiker, I found the terrain and heat more than I have ever experienced on previous hikes. I would like to do that trek over 10 days instead of 5 but that would be difficult from a logistical point of view. I was able to walk 2/3 of the trail... read more
