A honeymoon in Jordan is ideal for outdoor lovers, with a vast array of exciting diverse experiences and desert landscapes in this ancient kingdom.

Jordan is one of the most important lands for the Abrahamic religions, with countless archaeological and religious sites, ideal for history and culture buffs (even if you happen to be an atheist!).

Did you know Star Wars, Indiana Jones & Lawrence of Arabia were all filmed in Jordan? Just a few of the famous movies that have made the most of the extraordinary landscapes.

Most couples will start their honeymoon in Jordan in the capital, Amman. You can explore Levantine cuisine, take a walk through the Citadel and see many important sacred archaeological sites.

Set aside some time to visit Trinitae Soap House to purchase some heavenly natural soaps.

Less than an hour away is one of the region’s most well-preserved Roman ruins at Jerash.

Mount Nebo is also nearby, where Moses was purported to ascend the mountain and see the Promise Land.

Float in the therapeutic saline waters of the Dead Sea (good enough for the Queen of Sheba & Cleopatra, after all!). This is the ideal place to indulge in some spa treatments on your honeymoon in Jordan. Go hiking and for a swim in the nearby canyon, Wadi Mujib.

The Dana Biosphere Reserve, part of the Great Rift Valley that stretches from the Middle East to southern Africa, is the perfect place to get away from the crowds and ideal for hikers and great for stargazing.

Drive down the striking King’s Highway to Wadi Musa, base to visit one of the seven wonders of the world. The UNESCO World Heritage Site, a place that needs no introduction, is the rose-red city of Petra.

Petra was an important part of the Silk Route that stretched from Asia to Europe. We recommend spending at least two days exploring this spectacular bucket-list site so that you can get there early before the crowds of day trippers and see it lit by candlelight at night – magic.

Discover the ancient Bedouin culture at Wadi Rum. There is so much to see and do amongst the Mars-like landscapes.

Take a camel ride and explore a 4×4 Jeep. Go sand boarding in the dunes, rock climbing and hiking. Marvel at the colours of the spectacular desert sunset and the starry night sky. Stay in a bubble dome room.

Relax in the seaside city of Aqaba, where the extraordinary underwater life of the Red Sea is perfect for divers, of the best places in the world to swim with coral reefs.

where to tag on

You can combine a honeymoon in Jordan with a honeymoon in Egypt, as Cairo and Amman are only one hour away from each other.

Jordan is also ideal to combine with other destinations in the Middle East.

For example, you can fly to Dubai for beautiful luxury city stopover.

Consider a stop in Istanbul in Türkiye or include a stop in any of Europe’s incredible destinations for a multi-destination honeymoon.

You can fly to Amman from LondonParisMadrid, Barcelona, Rome and Budapest (to name a few!).

Best Time To Visit

The best time for a honeymoon in Jordan is from March to May and September to October.

During the winter months from November to January, it can get cold in the desert.

During the summer months from June to August, it gets hot, particularly in the desert, with temperatures reaching up to 37°C/100°F.

how long to stay

We recommend at least 10 nights for a honeymoon in Jordan.

However, the ideal duration of a honeymoon in the Jordan can vary depending on personal preferences and budget.

At least 10 nights will allow you some time to recover from jet lag if necessary and have time for multiple destinations, activities and relaxing.
