Spring has sprung in Jordan and we couldn’t be more excited. From warmer weather to extended daylight hours to the lush green hills, there’s nothing better than springtime in Jordan. The long weekend is here and it’s time to indulge in nature to the fullest with this list of soul-pumping activities and say buh-bye to your seasonal depression.
As they say, “suns out, guns out!” Grab your best shooters and head to Jordan Paintball Club and start shooting! Whats more exciting than coming up with the perfect strategy to beat your own friends in the battlefield?
Did you know that Jordan is home to the first zipline in the Middle East? We’re just as shocked as you are. Get your adrenaline pumping as you zip across Jordan’s longest zipline at Jordan EcoPark. P.S. make it a weekend experience and stay at the EcoPark’s quaint cabins.
Amman isn’t called the city of seven hills for nothing…Rent a mountain bike from Cycling Jordan and set off on your own cycling adventure. Better yet? Sign up for one of their bike trips and leave the planning to the experts.
If you have a fear of heights, we recommend skipping this one. We’ve all seen Wadi Rum from the back of a jeep, but have you seen it from a birds eye view? Explore Wadi Rum in a whole dimension with a hot air balloon ride and get ready to be amazed.
Adrenaline junkies, this one’s for you. Satisfy your need for speed as you zip through Tal al Rumman or Wasfi Al Tal Forest on the back of a 4X4 with Badia 4X4 guided tours. All that’s left to do is figure out who trusts you enough to ride with you…
Helicopter rides aren’t just for the rich and fabulous anymore. See Amman’s traffic from a new perspective as you soar through the city in your own private chopper courtesy of Golden Eagle Aviation Academy. Want to get out of the city? They can fly you to all the main sites in Jordan!
Looking for an escape from Amman for the weekend? The Ajloun Forest Reserve is a springtime paradise. Spend the night at the Ajloun cabins and spend your whole day hiking your way through the lush greenery of Ajloun.
Ahhh, the great outdoors! Spend your weekend singing songs around the campfire, cooking Sajiyeh, and sleeping under the stars. No tent? No problem. Treks Jo has all the gear you need to make it seem like you’re a camping pro.
If water sports aren’t your thing, take a crack at golf! The 18-hole championship course at Ayla Signature Course is the first of its kind in Jordan. Surrounded by the mountains and the Red Sea, this golf game will be unlike any other.
Hiking and camping not your thing? We got you. Gather some friends (we recommend groups no larger than 4) and head over to Jordan’s first microbrewery, Carakale. Enjoy a long list of special brews as you overlook the beautiful green hills of Fuheis.
Opt outside, Tipsters!
