Jordan Family Adventure (DWFA)

North Africa / Middle East Jordan

The worst part of resort vacations? Trying to find a spot to lay out your blanket on a crowded beach. Solution: Visit Jordan instead! The beach never ends here (okay, technically it’s the Arabian Desert, but still…), and there’s way more to do here besides laying about and catching rays. Grab the kids and gape at the ancient rock-cut city of Petra one day, hike magnificent Wadi Rum the next, then snorkel the coral reefs of Aqaba and float in the Dead Sea a few days later. Good luck doing all that at an all-inclusive!

Highlights: Arrive at the awe-inspiring sight of Petra, camp out under the stars in Wadi Rum, observe many coloured fish while snorkelling in the Red Sea, float in the salty Dead Sea
