Why senior travel in Jordan could be the experience of a lifetime

They say that you don’t stop pursuing dreams because you grow old, you grow old because you stop pursuing dreams. Yet as the market in silver tourism continues to grow, it’s clear that those in their fifties, sixties, and beyond, are younger at heart than ever and keen to embrace the freedom of their later years. With its fascinating historical sites, mouth-watering cuisine, and unbeatable accommodation in the form of luxury resort Ayla, Jordan offers a rich and fulfilling adventure for travellers of all ages. Here’s why senior travel in Jordan could be the experience of a lifetime…


What makes Jordan a dream destination for senior travellers?



1.      Luxury accommodation

While there are plenty of exciting things to do in Jordan that could fill your itinerary filled in a flash, there’s nothing quite like a touch of the luxe life to enhance your overall stay. Unwind in the elegant Ayla resort, situated near the characterful town of Aqaba, where you can relax on pristine sands or swing your favourite five iron at the 800,000 square meter golf green. Perfectly positioned for access to Petra, Wadi Rum, and countless other cultural experiences, Ayla provides a high-living haven right in the heart of Jordan.



2.      Rich culture

Part of the thrill of travel is immersing yourself in new countries and gaining a brand new perspective on the world that you might never have imagined back home. The Jordanian people are renowned for their warm, curious, and welcoming nature, so you won’t find it hard to engage in conversation if you visit a coffee shop, market, or a traditional Bedouin camp. Why not hire a knowledgeable guide to learn about Jordan through the eyes of those who know it best? You’ll get better acquainted with Jordan than you ever would by simply using a book or an app.



3.      Adventurous activities

Take in the eerie lunar landscape of the Wadi Rum desert with a hot air balloon ride at dawn, hike the rewarding trail to the ancient monastery at Petra, or master the skill of diving off the coast of Aqaba. With a diversity of captivating landscapes and cultural sites to explore, there’s a Jordan activity for every taste. Bob like a cork as you float in the salty Dead Sea or flex your bartering skills at Souk by the Sea Aqaba,. You’ll never be stuck for something to do.




4.      Gripping history

Magnificent historical sites are par for the course in Jordan, from the glittering architectural beauty of the Sherif al-Hussein bin Ali Mosque in Aqaba to the lost city of Petra. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to tackle the famous ancient city with its imposing pink cliffs and intricately-carved temples, and prepare to live out those Indiana Jones fantasies as you marvel at the passage of time.





5.      Breath-taking scenery

As if incredible feats of ancient architecture weren’t enough, Jordan’s enchanting landscapes showcase the power and wonder of nature. From the shimmering waters and pristine reefs of the Aqaba Marine Park to the endlessly shifting dunes of Wadi Rum, whether you’re diving deep below the waves or traversing the sands on a camel, you’ll find Mother Nature at her most inspiring in this mysterious and mesmerising land.



Tick off your senior travel adventures in Jordan with ease while you relax in five-star surroundings at Ayla, and allow Jordan’s best resort to serve as a luxury home-away-from-home.
