Nature of Jordan - national parks and reserves for active recreation

Camping and hiking enthusiasts will genuinely enjoy their vacation in Jordan. They can stay in the desert and sleep among sandy dunes of the famous Wadi Rum Desert. This means, you can live and wake up in the wild nature, even though there is mostly sand around. However, the view is truly spectacular! Camping hotels in Wadi Rum can be of different categories, so there are luxurious and modest ones. The latter are similar to the lifestyle that Bedouins have, so tourists in search of something unique and unusual may find it interesting to stay at such camping hotels.
If you plan to visit Jordan with family and children, it is always a good idea to plan this vacation beforehand and do not limit yourself to beach …

The desert itself offers many interesting activities. Even if you don’t plan to stay in Wadi Rum, it is still recommended to visit it. Take a hiking tour or rent an off-roader, try rock climbing or participate in interesting excursions to historic landmarks – the choice is up to travelers. Rock drawings in the region date back to 2,000 BC. Riding a camel, flying in a hot air balloon – these interesting activities are also available to guests of Wadi Rum.
A visit to Mount Nebo is a mesmerizing experience. This is a true pride of the country, a sacred place, and simply a fantastic destination that is, by the way, mentioned in the Bible. According to the Hebrew Bible, this is where God showed Moses the Promised Land. This is also the place where Moses is buried. In this place, beautiful nature meets historic landmarks, so tourists can comfortable admire both. Don’t forget to visit the memorial of Moses and see the temple and its relics.

A visit to Petra will be no less interesting. It is an archaeological park and an ancient city full of mesmerizing landmarks. The Siq is the main entrance to Petra. It is a deep canyon, the length of which is almost 2 kilometers. Decorations carved into walls and fabulous stone sculptures decorate the passage. There are also remains of an ancient water system. In Petra, tourists have an opportunity to climb to the highest spot in the region, Mount Aaron.
When talking about natural landmarks in Jordan, it would be a mistake not to mention the Dead Sea. Jordanian coast of the Dead Sea is a unique climatic zone and a nature park famous for its healing properties. It is particularly suitable for people with skin and joint problems. It is not necessary to book a hotel near the Dead Sea. To enjoy fresh air, feel the harmony and serenity of this place, it is much better to camp near the sea at least for one day.
In Jordan, there are many holidays that are adopted and celebrated around the world. For example, January 1st is the New Year Day and the official day …

The territory of the ancient city of Jerash also deserves the attention of curious tourists. This is a valley surrounded by forests, hills, and fertile lands. The Azraq Wetland Reserve has a freshwater lake that is an important drinking place for different species of wild animals and birds. It is possible to see such rare species as Arabian oryx here. Wadi Al Mujib canyon is a unique place. This is the biggest canyon in the whole Middle East. Wadi Al Mujib is sometimes compared with the Grand Canyon in the United States because of its size and beauty.
Vacationers more interested in the underwater world than land-based landmarks will be excited about an opportunity to visit the Aqaba Marine Park. This is a seven-kilometer-long territory with a complex of coral reefs that adorn the coastline. The marine park was created in order to preserve the underwater world of the area but let people see its beauty. Of course, this doesn’t mean that visitors can cut a piece of coral as a memorable souvenir or, even worse, catch some underwater creature. There are many souvenir shops that sell interesting and memorable items for any taste. By the way, visitors can also book a ride in a boat with the transparent bottom or hire a scuba diving coach to polish skills.
