Jordan Luxury Travels

The land of Ancient Wonders

Images of the ancient Nabataean city of Petra, carved from the rock over a thousand years ago, has long been most people’s first impression of Jordan, the jewel of the Middle East.

While Petra is indeed one of the most stunning attractions in the Middle East, Jordan offers so much more for the modern traveler. A well-traveled caravan route between the seas and the desert, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan is a land of mesmerizing beauty and contrasts, from the ever changing Jordan Valley to the remote and eerie desert canyons.

Visitors can explore splendid desert castles, gaze in awe at the haunting wilderness of Wadi Rum, or bathe in the medicinal waters of the Red Sea.

Month-by-month guide for traveling in Jordan

Spring (March to May) is the most pleasant time of the year to visit Jordan. The warm days and breezy nights in Spring lend themselves to an ideal season drawing travelers from afar. March to May with perfect weather conditions throughout the country – Petra, Jerash, Desert Castles, and the Dead Sea are popular destinations.
March in Jordan is the ideal for outdoor enthusiasts to go on desert hikes. The rains and the icy winter storms would have just ended. The colors of Jordan start to bloom, the northern parts with lush green valleys covered with blankets of wildflowers look like a fantasy land.
April is most definitely a great time to visit Petra, Wadi Rum and other top attractions in Jordan. With mild weather conditions in April, Jordan starts to buzz with global travelers, making it the high season for travel. So, if you plan to visit in April make sure to book your trip well in advance.Factoid: every 7 years or so, during March through May, you can witness a unique opportunity – the rare black iris flowers bloom! Not easy to find but a breathtaking sight if luck is on your side.
Early May climate is a great time for sightseeing and hiking. It’s also the best to visit Petra and Wadi Rum. In late May the temperatures start to rise bringing in the infamous sand storms in the desert. Called ‘Khamseen’, these storms blanket the cities with sand dust and overcast skies.
Summer in Jordan is very popular for diving, snorkeling in calm, warm waters with crystal clear visibility for marine life viewing. Jordan is a desert, remember, while summer temperatures often reach up to 106°F in certain places, this is the time to relax and float in the Dead Sea or snorkel/scuba dive in the Red Sea in Aqaba. Splatter that sunblock generously, dust off that big stylish hat, pack loose fitting clothes and get ready for summer in the desert.
Late June is the start of summer in Jordan. The temperature starts to creep higher – its classic hot and dry Middle Eastern weather, but it’s still not as hot as July and August, so grab that slot before it gets beyond melting point. If you are used to the heat then with the right itinerary you can still explore this beautiful country.
July is hottest in Jordan with off peak airline fares. Temperatures hover close to 100°F and when the ‘khamseen’, (sand storm) blows the temperatures rise even further. July could be tough on visitors wanting to explore the top attractions like Petra or Wadi Rum but as we said each season has its perks – the flights and accommodation costs are much lower and offer a more relaxed crowd free experience. With clear skies July is also the right time for stargazing, and the famous Perseid meteor shower appears in July.
August is the best time to watch the meteor showers in Wadi Rum. August is the hottest time of the year with temperatures climbing above 100F! August is the best time for stargazing and to catch the spectacular Perseid meteor showers from your luxe desert camp in Wadi Rum. Every year around the second week of August this impressive astronomical event reaches its zenith in Wadi Rum making it a desirable location.
Fall is still a pretty good time to visit Jordan, with temperatures cooling down to the upper 80s. Now is the time to gear up for outdoor adventures.
September is the best time to float in the Dead Sea. After the blazing heat, September transitions to Fall season with temperatures quickly cooling down. With few hot outlying days, temperatures will soon mirror the Spring season. The September water temperature in the Red Sea is warm and inviting with very good visibility for underwater activities.
Mid-October Jordan starts to really cool down. The October rains bring back the lush green landscapes making it a great time for outdoor activities like hiking.
In November it is cold, and with fewer travelers the best high end accommodations are easier to be had at bargain prices. But the warm water in the Red Sea keeps the demand high in the south of the country, inviting water lovers and divers.
Winter months are quite chilly depending on the location. Rain and snow are quite common in the capital city of Amman, and it is just about freezing temperature in Petra and Wadi Rum.
December – brrr, freezing temperatures keeps most travelers away from Jordan.
January the chilly winter winds and rains continue, and even the locals choose to lay low.
February continues to be cold, but it starts thawing towards the end of February and with spring just around the corner this might be the sweet spot of the year you have been waiting for.

People, food and culture

The majority of Jordan’s population is of Bedouin origin, Bedu meaning “Desert Dwellers”. The bedouin are nomadic by birth, constantly wandering through the desert in search of food and water. The country is a potpourri of diverse cultures where on the one hand rural life revolves around the extended family, agriculture, and hospitality, while the urbanite Jordanians enjoy all the trappings of modern life - theatrical productions, music concerts, operas and ballet. As with every country, Jordan has its set of culinary favorites. Jordanian cuisine is a delicious melange of the country's diverse heritage, a vibrant mix of Bedouin flavors and local takes on its most iconic dishes that go beyond Falafel and Shawarma. The country’s national dish is the Mansaf, which is a dish of tender meat layered with paper-thin flatbread and great piles of aromatic rice and a tangy yogurt sauce. This delicacy has its roots in the Bedouin kitchens. Another popular snack is the Kunafa, a Turkish inspired pastry with a syrup-filling that is perfect for those with a sweet tooth! Omnipresent at every Jordanian meal is a cup of Bedouin tea or coffee. Not only will you be in for an infinite number of refills, but sharing tea is an important facet of Bedouin culture and hospitality.
