Departure on September 30th by direct flight on Royal Jordanian with technical stop in Montreal

Jordan continues to welcome travelers in true Bedouin style. Hospitality is at the root of Bedouin culture and Jordanians are looking forward to saying to you, “ahlan wa sahlan fi al’urdun” – Welcome to Jordan!

A land steeped in history, Jordan is home to some of mankind’s earliest settlements and villages. Relics of many of the world’s great civilizations can still be seen today. Jordan has served as a strategic nexus connecting Asia, Africa and Europe. Thus, since the dawn of civilization, Jordan’s geography has given it an important role to play as a conduit for trade and communications, connecting east and west, north and south. Jordan continues to play this role today.
