There are so many choices for incentive experiences in Jordan that are limited only by your imagination. Those who like adventure can enjoy experiences in the desert, discovering the awe-inspiring beauty of some of Jordan’s most treasured sites like Wadi Rum and Petra. Travel across the desert in a 4×4 vehicle, on an Arabian horse or for the really adventurous, by camel. Experience the Bedouin lifestyle and dine around a camp fire under a million stars to the haunting sounds of Arabic music. Climb the challenging cliff faces to discover the ancient rock carvings and manmade tombs of those who lived there thousands of years ago. Learn to fly, go skydiving, or take to the skies the easy way and soar over the towering desert mountains in a hot air balloon.
There are also some great opportunities for soft adventure in Jordan’s nature reserves where some of the less frenetic activities such as jeep safaris, cycling trips, hiking and horse riding are an excellent way to discover the beauty, flora and fauna of the country. These trips will show you the thermal springs, cascading waterfalls and deep canyons and provide a natural playground for such incentive activities.
For water lovers, Aqaba in the south west corner of Jordan on the northern tip of the Red Sea offers some of the best diving sites in the world. There are countless species of fish and underwater life in the vast coral reefs here. Visitors can dive with whale sharks, dolphins and turtles and enjoy a myriad of colours beneath the gentle waves of the Red Sea. For those who prefer their activities above water, there is sailing, waterskiing, windsurfing and just about every other water-related fun activity imaginable.
For total relaxation, Jordan’s Dead Sea resorts will provide a more self-indulgent, therapeutic experience. Here the exclusive spa resorts will pamper and massage you into submission. Whether a reward in itself, or a brief stay at the end of a business trip, a visit to the Dead Sea will provide a real boost to any guests, leaving them refreshed and rejuvenated.
When it comes to events, Jordan has a whole host of locations suitable for staging them. There are massive ancient castles, such as Karak and Shobak where mock battles can be fought and mediaeval banquets may be enjoyed under the vaulted walls and mighty ramparts. There is Jerash – a part of Rome recreated in Jordan, where chariot races and gladiator-style challenges are par for the course. Then there are the magical settings of Petra, Wadi Rum and the Dead Sea, all of which will provide a unique backdrop to any event. The possibilities are endless.
