The less visited Holy Land
The other half of the Holy Land, Jordan is a country full of Biblical and cultural highlights. You will visit Petra, one of the wonders of the ancient world; Jerash, the best preserved city of the Decapolis; the Baptismal place of Jesus on the River Jordan; Mt Nebo, from where Moses viewed the Promised Land, and, for fun, we include a float on the Dead Sea.
Jordan has delighted visitors for centuries with its World Heritage Sites, friendly towns and inspiring desert landscapes. Jordan has a tradition of welcoming visitors: camel caravans plied the legendary King’s Highway transporting frankincense in exchange for spices while Nabataean tradesmen, Roman legionnaires, Muslim armies and zealous Crusaders all passed through the land, leaving behind impressive monuments. The tradition of hospitality to visitors remains to this day.
We offer a 10 day exploration of the country Some of our Holy Land itineraries offer a four day optional excursion to Jordan at the end of the pilgrimage.
