Experience Highlights

Adventure

Discover Jordan's most memorable experiences

Get away from it all and spend quality time with your companion. These exclusive adventures are your key to the many magical experiences which are available in Jordan.

Mujib Nature Reserve

Mujib Nature Reserve is one of nine nature reserves in Jordan and one of the largest. Its  altitudes range from 900 to 400 meters at the Dead Sea edge and beautiful canyon with the Mujib River flowing through the centre.  Mujib is also the main protected area for the endangered and shy Arabian Ibex, with approximately 400 protected in this sanctuary.

Dead Sea

The Dead Sea is known to have many medical benefits including relieving muscle pain.  The unique mud of the Dead Sea has also benefits for treating many skin diseases.  Aside from this, being located 420 meters below sea level, sunbathing can be enjoyed, as many of the sun's harmful UV rays are reduced.  Moreover, due to its natural buoyancy the water is a great fun to float in! 

Wadi Rum

Wadi Rum is a protected area covering 720 square kilometers of dramatic desert wilderness in the south of Jordan. Huge mountains of sandstone and granite emerge, sheer-sided, from wide sandy valleys to reach heights of 1700 meters and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains, with some concealing ancient rock drawings etched by the peoples of the desert over millennia. 

Hot Springs Trail

Discover the Ma’In hot springs visited by pilgrims for thousands of years, and learn about the life of the spring itself from our Experiences guide. We will take you around the Hammamat Ma’in valley to visit the point where the hot spring issues out from the rock itself and learn about composition of the water and the rock from which it comes. Also learn about the uses of the spring water for medical benefits and other more fun uses!

Religious

Appreciating the holy sites of Jordan

You don’t have to be focussed on religious beliefs to appreciate the historic and holy sites of Jordan, many of which have significantly influenced the world as we know it today.

Bethany Baptism Site

Bethany baptism site marks the place where Jesus was baptised by John. It is considered to be one of the three holiest Christian sites in the world, together with Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

 

This site has been recognized by most of the major traditional Christian Churches and has been visited by many Christian leaders including the late Pope John Paul II. Churches of many different denominations are built here, or are in the process of being built. 

 

Many other world leaders, Christians and non-Christian, have also visited the site. Baptism at the site can be arranged with local ministers but are subject to availability. Combine your religious trip with a visit to Mount Nebo and Madaba the Mosaic City to complete your holy circuit trip.

Mount Nebo

Mount Nebo is an elevated ridge in Jordan, approximately 817 meters above sea level, mentioned in the Bible as the place where Moses was granted a view of the Promised Land that he would never enter. The view from the summit provides a panorama of the Holy Land and, to the north, a more limited one of the valley of the River Jordan. The West Bank city of Jericho is usually visible from the summit, as is Jerusalem on a very clear day

Jerusalem, The Holy Land

The trip to the Holy Land starts early in the morning by taking you to Allenby Bridge to cross River Jordan to Jerusalem.  In Jerusalem, visit the Mount of Olives, view the Russian Church, enter the Old City of Jerusalem via Dung’s Gate, visit the Buraq/Wailing Wall. Then continue to View Al Aqsa Mosque and Dome of the Rock, walk part of Via Dolorosa and finally visit the Holy Sepulchre before Heading back to the bridge to cross River Jordan and head back to Evason Ma’in.

Mosaic town of Madaba

The Madaba excursion is an exploration of the many local historical and interesting sites, in and around the Ma’In area.  We will explore the famous mosaic town of Madaba and Visit the St. George Church, with its ancient mosaic map of Jerusalem and the holy land,  before having lunch in one of the popular local restaurants in Madaba.

Historic

Turn a holiday into an educational trip

Jordan has a wealth of history from the Romans to the Nabateans, and all have left their mark in the form of huge monuments and even whole cities for you to explore.

Karak

Karak, originally called Kir Heres during biblical times and completed by the Crusaders in 1161, became the most important fief and home to the Lord of Transjordan. Karak was besieged many times but never was taken by force, instead the Crusaders were besieged by Salah Eddin, who then set them free. During the drive to Karak we will stop for a great photo opportunity over the Mujib canyon and dam - almost as good as the view from the castle itself. 

Petra

Petra is 142 kilometers south of Ma’In, or a three-hour drive. An ancient Nabatean stone city dating from 9BC and one of the new seven wonders of the world!  The private Six Senses Experience excursion departs from Ma’In early in the morning to get the maximum benefit of the trip.

 

Entering Petra begins with a 1.2 kilometer walk through the Siq (stone canyon).  Visitors will then move on into the Petra “city centre” with many tombs and houses carved into the stone, plus a large Roman style theatre.

Jarash

Jarash is the City of a Thousand Pillars. It is one of the largest and best preserved Roman cities in the world, and at over 2000 years old Jarash is an impressive discovery. The city also has one of the best preserved original Roman theatres that is still being used until today.  

 

In the original Roman-built Hippodrome experience a show of the past, with the daily Roman legionnaire drills and gladiator duels, finishing with an exciting chariot race and all taking place in the partially reconstructed 1800 year old arena.  All this followed by a guided tour to learn  the secrets of this ancient city, so well preserved that even the hundreds of giant pillars were left intact through earthquakes and landslides. 

1st Circle Amman

Our walking trail on the 1st circle Amman visits many of the old part of the capital, including the birthplace of the late King Hussein. The tour passes through rainbow street, a popular shopping street which is a great place to pick up souvenirs and gifts. Also included in the trip is a visit to the Roman Theatre, or Citadel of Philadelphia - Amman’s Roman name.  Then we will head to Wild Jordan Café for a delicious lunch, with a breath taking panoramic view of Amman's Old City.
