Romantic Jordan teems with historical treasures, and on an A&K vacation here, explore iconic ruins, including magnificent Petra, in unqualified comfort and style. Remnants of Greco-Roman cities and biblical landmarks make the rest of the journey to this ancient land a rewarding one.

Jordan's main attraction is the “rose-red city” of Petra, a stunning architectural masterpiece carved out from a mountain range by the Nabataeans in the third century BC. Discover the history and architecture of these ruins and many others alongside knowledgeable guides. On an A&K Jordan vacation, you also look beyond Petra: discover Jerash, the “Pompeii of the Middle East,” and visualize its splendor as you walk amid well-preserved Roman relics. Explore exciting Amman, Jordan's political, cultural and commercial hub. Then venture into Wadi Rum to experience the Bedouin lifestyle when you join locals for tea, or float in the Dead Sea and bathe in its healing salts and minerals.
