why it's worth going to Jordan with Apatite Hills

Holidays in Jordan - soak up the traditions of the Middle East

The Kingdom of Jordan is a mysterious and alluring country, covered with ancient legends and fairy tales, absorbed the traditions of the Middle East, and so unlike other Middle Eastern countries. A state whose culture reflects the millennial heritage of the peoples who ruled on its territory. The Nabataean Kingdom and the ancient Greeks led by Alexander the Great, Ancient Rome and the Arab Caliphate, the Mamluks, the Ottoman Empire and the century-old history of the lordship of Transjordan – from the Crusades to the independent Kingdom of Jordan, proclaimed in May 1945.

Like the rich history of the country, the territory of Jordan resembles an unexplored book, in which each page opens its own world filled with secrets and discoveries. Ancient Petra is the Nabataean capital and one of the seven wonders of the world, an incomprehensible city carved into the rocks.

The fantastic “lunar desert” of Wadi Rum with its boundless sands painted by the sun in an endless spectrum of different colors and shades. Pompeii of the East – the Greco-Roman city of Jerash and the brilliant capital of Jordan – spread out on seven hills of Amman. The Dead Sea, famous all over the world for its unique healing properties, and the amazing Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea is one of the most popular diving spots in the world.

Jordan is a country with excellent opportunities for recreation and travel, carefully preserving the heritage of those “who made the tales of the ancients a lesson for the peoples of the future.”

With us you will see

Amman – in the footsteps of the Roman Empire

We will introduce you to the city of contrasts: antiquity is side by side with modernity here. We will see the Citadel of Amman and the Roman Amphitheater - the most impressive structure built in 151 BC and left over from the time of the Roman city of Philadelphia; we will visit the Jordanian Museum of Folk Traditions, where traditional costumes, jewelry samples, as well as royal cars are presented. We will also take a look at the oriental market and the Wild Jordan store, where handmade products are presented - from silver jewelry to carpets and engraved ostrich eggs.

Petra - immerse yourself in the myths and customs of ancient centuries

We will introduce you to the unique ancient city of Petra, recognized as a new wonder of the world. Shimmering with all shades of red, it surprises with a combination of nature and the creation of human imagination, embodying the myths and customs of ancient centuries, and the main attraction – the treasury of El Khazneh – impresses with its beauty and scope.

Wadi Rum Desert - Picnic in the middle of the desert

We will guide you among the stone walls, which rise in separate cliffs, resembling giant buildings lined up on both sides of the street they form. We will organize a picnic for you among the crimson sands so that you get an unforgettable experience, enjoy the incredible starry sky and the purple dawn.

Jerash is a city hidden in the sands

Jerash, which ranks second after Petra in the list of favorite places in Jordan, boasts an unbroken chain of human activities dating back more than 6,500 years. Hidden for centuries in the sand before being excavated and restored over the past 70 years, Jerash is a perfect example of the grand provincial Roman urbanism found throughout the Middle East. We will guide you through cobbled streets decorated with colonnades, tall temples on top of a hill, beautiful theaters, spacious public squares and baths, fountains and city walls pierced with towers and gates.

Dead Sea - plunge into the healing power of nature

We will take you to the coast of the Dead Sea - one of the most impressive natural and spiritual landscapes in the world, the main attraction of which, of course, is the soothing, abnormally salty water. You will be able to feel its healing power, which to this day remains as attractive to travelers as it was for kings, emperors, merchants and prophets in ancient times.
