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).
