Family Holiday to Jordan

There is something about Jordan that excites children of all ages. It might be images of Roman chariots racing around the Hippodrome at Jerash. It could be standing in the shoes of Indiana Jones as he visits Petra in the ‘Last Crusade.’ Maybe it is the sensation of floating on the Dead Sea. They will love the magic of camping under the stars in Wadi Rum. Your family holiday experience in Jordan can be utterly varied and immensely rewarding. You can visit Jordan in a Half Term by leaving on a Saturday and coming back on a Sunday.

The flight time is just five hours, making a family holiday to Jordan ideal over the Easter holidays, May Half Term, or October Half Term. We have tailored a selection of the most incredible experiences that all the family will adore. We can adjust any element of this suggested itinerary to suit your children, whether they are on their first cultural trip, or are more active teenagers wanting a little more adrenaline-fuelled fun. You’ll have superb private drivers, really-interesting guides who can bring stories of the Romans or Nabateans to life, and of course, lovely hotels with amazing pools that your children will no doubt crave after a day exploring.

    Customise Your Itinerary

    We can tweak and change any element of this itinerary and you can depart on any day you want, add nights here and there, and we can fully customise your day-to-day experiences depending on your interests. Here are just a few ideas of many that we can look at and discuss when we come to plan your tailor-made itinerary.

    Skip Amman

    We all know that children don't like too many sites, so you can skip Amman and head straight to the Dead Sea for some beach time to start your trip.

    Add Aqaba

    Aqaba lies to the south of Wadi Rum, so you could end your trip here, with a 'live' sea, amazing pools, and of course snorkeling.

    Add more adventure

    For teenagers, you could add on some longer day walks in say Wadi Dana. We also have a range of day-walks in and around Petra.
