Jordan is famous for many things, the ancient city of Petra, hummus, wadi rum and... THE RED SEA! Here at Girls that Scuba we've been lucky enough to call Jordan a second home over the last few years and have visited time and time again enjoying everything this wonderful country has to offer. So it's no wonder we are announcing our second group trip in Jordan - and you can trust that we've put together the most epic itinerary for you!
Welcome to Jordan: Our Itinerary
One of the most beautiful and interesting countries in the world we are so excited to share it all with you. Let's take a look into what our GTS will look like!
Our trip will begin in Amman - the capital city of Jordan touring around the city on bus, seeing panoramic views and welcoming our first night together on a rooftop bar, Our trip will also end in Amman.
On our journey down to the Dead Sea we will stop off for a water trek at world-famous Wadi Mujib - a spellbinding canyon that towers above the Mujib River and stretches along 70 kilometers. Those dive boots will come in handy here as we cool down in the beautiful river.
The lowest point on earth!! Spoil your skin and body with one of the richest waters and mud in the world with its healing and relaxing powers. We will float effortlessly in the Dead Sea and enjoy it's peaceful and unique surroundings, while staying in a hotel overlooking it!
One of the 7 world wonders and a UNESCO World Heritage site. We will enter the city through 1KM long narrow gorge which is flanked either side by 80m high cliffs! The site is massive, and contains hundreds of elaborated rock-cut tombs, a treasury, Roman-style theatres, temples, sacrificial altars and colonnaded streets. A bucket list destination for all!
Red Sea, Aqaba
Now our salt fun begins, let's dive into the Red Sea for 3 days of scuba diving! Each day at different dive sites enjoying everything the Red Sea has to offer including colourful corals, rich marina life, ship wrecks, and even a plane! On board Aqaba's best boat Diversity we will be looked after like mermaids should!
Now let's head to Jordanian Desert to explore Wadi Rum (AKA Valley of The Moon) on jeeps into the sunset - but watch out for camels! We will spend the night below the stars in a traditional desert camp (don't worry though no tents).

Is Jordan Safe?
Other than Jordan being a simply amazing destination with so much to offer we also wanted to organise this trip for anyone that was worried about Jordan not being safe. If you are a solo traveller, joining a group is a great way to explore Jordan. We've travelled Jordan solo, in groups and with friends and have never felt unsafe, GTS founder who has spent a lot of time in Jordan wrote about her experience and safety here if you'd like more information.
