The nature of Jordan

Jordan landscapes are definetely not green, but they don't lack beauty! Main destinations of a travel itinerary here are Dana Reserve, Dead Sea, Wadi Rum desert and Red Sea. From trekking to swimming to canyoning in the Wadi Mujib, there are plenty of activities. (You can find here all travel info about Jordan).
The southern part of Jordan has few kilometers of coast along the Red Sea. The town of Aqaba isn't really attractive and the nearby industries aren't beautiful at all, but underwater there is a stunning display of colourful fish and corals.

Travelling north, the next destination of the trip is the Wadi Rum desert. The sandy plains surrounded by red mountains are a perfect postcard. Even History passed here in the person of the heroic and complicated Lawrence of Arabia. You can sleep in the desert in one of the tented camps, admiring the stars in one of the best nights of your journey.

To the north of the Wadi Rum desert, the travel itinerary continues to Dana reserve, the most fascinating natural park in Jordan, with beautiful trekking opportunities. The landscape features canyons, oddly-shaped colourful rocks and even some trees and bushes that, for Jordan, mean a lot of vegetation.

Once we left Dana nature reserve, we continued our travel itinerary to the north towards the Dead Sea and the nearby Wadi Mujib.

The Dead Sea is 390 meters under the sea level: the deepest point on the earth surface. Its salty waters are warm and make people float easily. With the mud of the Dead Sea you can get a skin so soft that you will want to caddle yourself.
In the Wadi Mujib national park, instead, it's possible going canyoning (from spring to autumn) in the torrent running in a stunning gorge.
