It lies on the most northern tip of the Red Sea and on a clear day one can see Israel, Saudi Arabia and Egypt. With its balmy winter climate and idyllic setting, Aqaba is Jordan’s year-round aquatic playground.

Travel back in time with a visit to the Aqaba Castle and the museum. Marine life enthusiasts can visit the Aquarium at the Marine Science Station Complex, to see colourful shoals of fish swim past. Discover more with a visit to Aqaba’s downtown, and lounge at its many cafes and restaurants.

Additional info

As the Ministry of Jordan does not allow a driver to also be a guide, a guide is not included in the cost of your tour. However, your driver will be very informative and be able to point out and explain sites as you drive past. Many people prefer to visit the sites and follow the walking tracks on their own, although there will be local guides available for hire on arrival at the particular destination.The confirmation voucher includes the local activity operator’s contact details and local telephone numbers at the destination. They will happily answer any logistical questions you may have.
