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.

Us Jordanians are so lucky, one of the world’s most popular and magnificent stargazing destinations is just a car ride away! So don’t think twice about it, pack up the car and make a wish on a shooting star, in one of the most beautiful parts of Jordan, RumSky offers visitors to enjoy the starry nights of Wadi Rum with the help of guided tours and state-of-the-art telescopes.

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…

Paintball has gotta be one of the more popular outdoor activities and as they say, “suns out, guns out!” Grab your best shooters and head to Blu Tactical and start shooting! What’s more exciting than coming up with the perfect strategy to beat your own friends on the battlefield?

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 summertime 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 with the Scrambling gang, getting to know nature on an intimate level! Grab a friend, get wet and dirty, and explore the amazing terrain of different parts of Jordan through a plethora of physically engaging outdoor activities like canyoning, hiking, rappelling, mountaineering, and swimming!

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.

Why is driving a go-kart so much more fun than regular driving? Well, you gotta try it for yourself to find out! If you’ve never experienced the adrenaline rush of driving a go-kart, you gotta visit the tracks at Jordan Speed Center! They also offer zipline and escape rooms.

Wanna make great memories with family and friends alike? We suggest visiting Black Iris Farm and Zoo, to have some laughs and score awesome pictures! Offer yourself and the kids the chance to meet deer, monkeys, goats, ducks, ostriches, ponies, even a llama, and a flamenco!

A woodland composed of pine trees, The Forest Park, is much more than just a natural park. You’ll find all the serenity you need for those looking to unplug. However, if you’re up for your next adventure, this park will also serve precisely what you need. From buggies, paintball, and horse riding to cycling, zip-lining, and rope courses, it’s never a dull time at this park!

If you’ve always wanted to try it, now’s the time! At TennisPro you’ll discover that tennis, even at the amateur level, is as much about fun as it is competition. It is a very social sport, allowing you to have fun with your friends and opponents not only during points, but also between, before, and after the match!

Bullseye! Robin Hood didn’t only have a cool story behind his legend, he had arrows and a bow. A place to find those in Amman is Jordan Archery, where you can learn the art of archery. Of course, you won’t be shooting at villains or horse carriages, but you probably might end up hitting a bullseye, and you’ll need your friends to be there to see it.

Work on those shooting techniques and practice your aim while spending time with friends doing outdoor activities. Explore the world of shooting sports at the Royal Jordanian Shooting Club. They provide a fun and safe space to experience firearms, where shooters of all skill levels are welcome.

Opt outside, Tipsters!
