What it feels like to be there…

Jordan is truly blessed with an exciting history, culture, environment and geography. Bathe in the Dead Sea, visit grand ancient temples, hike in beautiful canyons, visit historic religious sites and learn to cook spectacular Arabic stews – all within just a few hours’ drive. And do it from luxury hotels at the very birthplace of Spa culture.

What to do there…

The Dead Sea is a great location and perfect for 5 to 7 days:

  • Major: Hiking, Nature-walks, Canyon-treks, Spa/Massage, Cultural-visits, Historical-sites, Cycling, Camel-riding, Cooking-classes, Art-classes, Hot-springs.
  • Other: Dead-Sea-bathing, Gym/Fitness, Swimming, Library, Cinema.

Where to stay…

5* Evason Ma’In is situated in a quiet canyon with hot spring waterfalls gently splashing around you. Staff emphasise health, adventure and rejuvenation and really know how to pamper you. Alternatively, the 5* Kempinski Ishtar is right on the Dead Sea shore, packed with great activities and very family friendly.

Some practical information worth knowing…

  • Travel: Amman Airport is 1h from Ma’In and Ishtar, Dead Sea.  From there, Petra is 3h and Wadi Rum or Aqaba 2h more.
  • Weather: dry all year, cool Nov-Mar and warm Apr-Oct.

What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

Petra is the most spectacular site in a country full of wonders. Give yourself 4-5h to explore it fully, especially if you make the fabulous trek up to the monastery and panoramic viewpoints. The moment you catch your first glimpse of the majestic library as you emerge from the winding canyons will stay with you forever. Breathtaking!
