Jordan

Dead Sea Jordan

OVERVIEW

Home to some of the world’s most sacred, well-preserved historic sites, Jordan promises a blend of adventure and culture to those who seek an enriching experience. Enjoy a thrill ride through the vast deserts of Wadi Rum. Float in the Dead Sea, famous for its mineral-rich, rejuvenating waters. Stand in awe as you witness the perceptively untouched Bethany Beyond the Jordan, where Jesus was baptized, according to the Bible. Marvel at Petra’s intricate rock carvings and caves. This ancient trade junction, founded by the Nabataeans who settled in the land nearly 2000 years ago, happens to be one of the world’s wonders — truly a site you must see to believe.
