Family Travel in Jordan

Jordan is without a doubt the perfect destination for family travel. Home to the iconic archaeological site Petra, which is often the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of Jordan. There is so much more to it though as we discovered.

Some of the highlights of our Jordan itinerary were a visit to Jerash where we caught a gladiator show among the ancient ruins. We tried floating in the Dead Sea and covering ourselves in mud and staying overnight in a desert camp in Wadi Rum. We snorkelled in the Red Sea and of course, we stood in awe upon seeing our bucket-list destination, Petra, for the first time.

The people are incredibly friendly and welcoming and they love children. The country is safe to travel around with modern infrastructure, including paved and well-signposted roads and the food is great. What more could you want from a family trip?
