Jordan

Discover the wonders of the Middle East when you experience Jordan with Millis Potter. Enjoy insider experiences, stunning desert scenery, unique cultural interactions, and a host of extraordinary moments on one of our luxury Jordan holidays.

Embark upon a walking tour of old Amman to see the ancient ruins of the Temple of Hercules and the massive Roman theatre. Delve into the 2,000-year-old Hippodrome of Jerash, and hear stories of racing chariots and gladiator duels. On the King’s Highway, stop to see the stunning mosaics in Madaba and visit the imposing crusader castle at Kerak.

See a bit of Jordan’s wild side on a scenic walk through the Dana Nature Reserve past nomadic Bedouin camps on your way to the incredible Feynan Eco-Lodge.

Get a taste for the desert — Lawrence of Arabia style — in Wadi Rum where you can ride a camel through ancient valleys and beneath towering weathered sandstone mountains. Immerse yourself in the spectacular scenery of the Wadi Mujib Nature Reserve, often called Jordan’s Grand Canyon. At the Dead Sea, the lowest point on Earth, marvel at the pale, blue waters and take a dip in the world’s saltiest sea, with stunning sunsets over the West Bank.

The highlight of your time in Jordan may well be the Lost City of Petra. Spend the day, exploring the red sandstone city, built 2,000 years ago by nomadic Bedouins. From the narrow, winding passageway of the Siq and the great Treasury to the hilltop Monastery, discoveries await you at every turn.

This is a selection of experiences that allow you to see the destination in new and interesting ways. Almost all our experiences include a private guide, and can be then tailored to your particular interests. Indeed, many of the experiences we offer are created individually for our guests, so this list is by no means conclusive.

The Dead Sea

Nothing quite prepares you for the sensation of floating on the buoyant, salt-rich waters of the Dead Sea. For centuries, the Dead Sea has attracted travellers who revel in the healing properties of the high oxygen levels, being 360 metres below sea level and the mineral-rich mud used in the spa treatments.

Wadi Dana

The Dana Biosphere Reserve is Jordan’s largest nature reserve and is one of the best trekking area in Jordan. The elevation drops from about 1,500 metres (4,900ft) on the Qadisiyah plateau to the low-lying desert area of Wadi Araba.

Aqaba

Aqaba is Jordan’s premier beach resort, and is located in southern Jordan on the Red Sea. Aqaba is ideal for a final few nights on the beach, and unlike the Dead Sea is  is preferred if you like water-sports, diving or snorkelling.

Wadi Rum

The desert of Wadi Rum has some of the most wonderful scenery in Jordan - and the views just go on and on. Located between Petra and the southern beaches of Aqaba, you can visit Wadi Rum as a short afternoon visit from Petra, or even better spend a night in one of the excellent desert camps.

Petra

The ‘rose-red’ city of Petra is one of the world’s most impressive archeological sites, and a visit to Jordan usually revolves around your visit here. Petra was the capital of the ancient Nabataeans, who controlled the east-west trade before the coming of the Romans.

Amman & Northern Jordan

Amman is the capital of Jordan and is the perfect place to explore northern Jordan including the sites of Jerash, Umm Qais and the Desert Castles.

The best time for a holiday to Jordan is in the Spring and Autumn, when temperatures are in their high 20°Cs. The weather is not too warm for seeing the remarkable sites such as Jerash or Petra, where you are out in the sun for most of the day. You can easily enjoy the various hikes around the nature reserves such as Dana Biosphere Reserve.

The summer is not a good time to visit Jordan, with temperatures rising into the 40s. It is a dry heat, so some people consider it, given you have the main sites to yourself without any other tourists.

The winter months, from early December to the end of February is cold, very cold. Jordan usually sees snow, and it is the wettest months statistically. This means we usually advise pushing making your plans for a holiday to Jordan in March, April, May, October or November.
