Luxury Holidays in Jordan
For many, Jordan begins and ends at the lost city of Petra or the white sand of the Red Sea coast. Yet in between is an ancient and captivating country, where you can go from traversing Wadi Rum by camel to luxuriating in the Dead Sea in a matter of days. The choice of experiences on a luxury holiday to Jordan can be overwhelming. However, the team at Lightfoot Travel can design a unique, tailor-made itinerary for you.
Wadi Rum is one of Jordan’s most famous stretches of red sand. Here you can sleep in luxurious Bedouin tents and visit the Seven Pillars of Wisdom.
Enjoy a float on the salty water of the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth. Products made from the Dead Sea’s mineral-rich black mud are legendary, but there’s nothing like experiencing the real thing.
The jewel in Jordan’s crown is undoubtedly the ancient city of Petra, where an incredible 800 monuments are set in a historical and archaeological city of just 100 square kilometres. You can spend days wandering through cavernous chasms, exploring towering tombs and inspecting the facades, hand carved around the 5th century BC.
Jordan is almost landlocked, except for a tiny window at its southernmost tip in the form of Aqaba, a port city that opens up to the Red Sea coast. With fabulous seafront resorts and some of the best diving in the world, Aqaba provides a welcome respite after the heat of the desert.
