Private Tour: Full-Day Islamic Desert Castles and Ajloun Castle Trip from Amman

4 reviews
Look beyond Jordan’s most celebrated attractions to see some lesser-known historical treasures on this private Islamic desert castle day trip from Amman. Head east to Al-Azraq, a castle that ‘Lawrence of Arabia’ once used as a headquarters, and then explore the fresco-painted masterpiece of Amra and Kharaneh castles. Finish at Aljoun, a hilltop medieval fortress built to defend against the Crusaders. Your tour includes private transport, hotel pickup and drop-off, and entrance fees.

The nature reserve is a little pricey to just walk through the forest, but they do have nice walking trails! We enjoyed the helpful staff who explained the different trees once we retuned form our hike. Plan ahead and they have cute cabins to rent if you need a place to sleep.

Really liked this place. Stayed overnight in a cabin, which was located in a peaceful and natural setting. The accommodation was quite basic, but was clean, warm and comfortable. Dinner and breakfast were excellent and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Walked the Soap Trail in the morning (guided walk), which was an easy, pleasant walk through the surrounding trees and countryside, ending up at the newly built conservation centre. Would have liked the walk to be a little bit longer, as it only took us 2 hours, including a lengthy break for tea, but very enjoyable nonetheless. Highly recommended if you want something different away from the crowds.

This was my second visit to the Nature Reserve and happily the Visitor Centre was open this time - a striking building made in natural materials and a good opportunity to see some of the products from the Soap House, Biscuit House and Calligraphy House - and to buy a couple of gifts. Great to see a lot of local women finding employment through the centre too, and talking about their work. And then we headed off to do two sections of what’s now called the Rasun Trail, with a local guide, fortified by a great lunch en route at a homestay-cum-family restaurant in one of the villages in the valley. There’s an absolute profusion of fruit trees right down the valley as well as the more unusual pistachio, carob and strawberry trees in places, terracing on the hillsides, water canals/channels everywhere, and of course huge numbers of olive trees everywhere (including some stunning 2000-year old Roman specimens) all just ready for picking. The treat en route was to find a tree laden with ripe green figs (yes we ate loads!) and later to find huge numbers of heavily-laden pomegranate trees. This is a really interesting area to come and visit, and all the better for being somewhat off the main tourist trail.

Rustic cabin a la Scandanavia quite pricey but very elegant. Disappointed in Roe Deer Trail as it just went in a small circle. Great breakfast and nice staff. Note, all RSCN accommodations are very pricey, but the money goes to a good cause.

Good food at their restaurant, but make your reservation in advance as it might be fully packed during the weekend especially. Pleasant breeze even on hot days of the summer. You may rent a cottage and spend 1 or nights there enjoying great views, so much different from what you can see south of Amman.
