Ryanair are offering a great opportunity to fly from Athens, Greece to Aqaba, Jordan, the go-to destination if you want to visit the spectacular ruins of Petra and Wadi Rum! You can book a ticket from only €10.99 for a roundtrip!
Known for its authentic Middle Eastern culture and hospitable locals, Jordan is a land of fascinating contrasts and history. Apart from the legendary rock-cut temples of Petra and the very site where Jesus Christ is thought to have been baptized, you can explore the Roman, Ottoman, Persian and Egyptian relics, as well as deserts and beach resorts.
This vast desert valley (wadi) on the eastern fringes of Aqaba is surely one of the most awesome natural wonders in Jordan. Mythic petroglyphs carved into the cliffs’ soft sandstone are the evidence for the fact that this area has been inhabited for thousands of years. This protected UNESCO World Heritage Site with towering monoliths was chosen as the backdrop to many movies (e.g. 'Lawrence of Arabia', 'Prometheus, 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' and 'The Martian').
Don’t pass up an opportunity to stay at one of the many Bedouin camps. Hike in Wadi Rum to see the breathtaking White Desert, Khazali Canyon, Um Frouth Rock Bridge, Al Mahama, and Lawrence's spring. A camel ride to watch the sunrise at the sand dunes glowing deep orange and red is an experience you’ll never forget.
