We’ve collated some of our favourite pictures of Jordan from families travelling there with us. Jordan is a firm Stubborn Mule favourite, with its winning combination of starkly beautiful desert scenery, superb ruins, crusader castles and beaches. It’s small, so you can tick off a lot within a shorter half-term break, or extend with extra nights on the Dead Sea or Red Sea for a more relaxing break. As these pictures of Jordan will show, you can take a jeep ride in Wadi Rum one day, slathering mud over yourselves the next, and hiking the back route into Petra before the week is out.

Hiking in Jordan is made all the more family-friendly by a stop en route for a glass of freshly brewed Bedouin tea, with flatbreads cooked over the open fire. This can be included on any of our Jordan family holidays.

Mineral therapy at the Dead Sea, Jordan

Teenage skin can be greatly improved with a serious slathering of black gloopy mud from the Dead Sea. Wash it off with a float in the buoyant waters of the sea on any of our Jordan itineraries.
