Fun Family Activities Around Jordan

Looking for a beautiful and truly unique destination? Somewhere that’s brimming with an abundance of things to do, including exploring fantastic architectural hotspots, a wide range of sports including skydiving and scuba diving, somewhere you can explore history one minute and then shop till you drop the next? Jordan is what you’re looking for!

Wadi Mujib

Explore Jordan’s very own “Grand Canyon” known as Wadi Mujib, a gorge that runs east of the Dead Sea’s shores. This one-of-a-kind terrain offers its visitors a variety of activities from camel-trekking to canyoning (available only for adults and teenagers over 18 years of age) and camping at the Mujib Reserve.

 

Camping

Live like a Bedouin and visit one of Jordan’s multiple camps sites to enjoy a night under the stars and breathtaking sunsets in an ever-changing landscape. From eco sites, to the classic Wadi Rum, Jordan has everything to offer the hardy adventurer or the weekend-warrior looking for the ultimate in glamping.

 

Petra

The ancient pink-hued ruins of Petra and its windswept caves provide visitors with some of the most unrivaled money shots. If you don’t have the time or desire to tour Amman, on your visit to Jordan, you can skip the capital, and visit one of the voted New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007 – Petra!

 

Red Sea/Aqaba

While the Red Sea basin offers Technicolor coral reefs across it’s extent, the diving along Aqaba's 24-km coast is considered among the best. With the opportunity to snorkel above shipwrecks like the 75-m Cedar Pride — a cargo ship scuttled in the 1980s — and even a military tank, as well as watching dolphins and tropical fish cruise by, Aqaba certainly earns its title.

 

Three Fingers of Hercules

Constructed under the rule of Marcus Aurelius from 161 AD to 180 AD, the three marble fingers of Hercules are likely the only remaining evidence of a giant statue of the mythical hero that adorns the gates of the Amman Citadel. These remnants of the Temple of Hercules, will surely delight adults and children alike as they spark the flames of imagination.

 

Dead Sea

At the lowest point on Earth, you will find a body of water in which you cannot sink. The Dead Sea is without a doubt an absolute geographic oddity, and a wonder you will never forget. This inland sea (which is actually a lake), with no outlet for its water, has a salt content of 20 percent due to evaporation. For one of the most bizarre and thrilling bathing experiences, take a dip in its waters or enjoy the natural health benefits of its rich mineral content with a Dead Sea Mud scrub!
