The marvels of nature and the genius of medieval Arab military architecture have given northern Jordan two of the most important ecological and historical attractions in the Middle East: the sprawling pine forests of the Ajlun-Dibbin area, and the towering Ayubid castle at Ajlun, which helped defeat the Crusaders eight centuries ago. Locals often take advantage of the green landscapes of Ajlun to take a break from city life and connect with nature.


Ajlun Forest Reserve

This stunning nature reserve, which is situated in the Ajlun Highlands in northern Jordan, is made up of 13km2 of undulating hills dominated by open woodlands that are home to a wide variety of plant and animal species. The rich greenery makes Ajlun a popular spot for picnickers and hikers, especially in the spring, when the reserve is coated in a wide variety of wildflowers.

 The majority of the caves in the North are composed of pressure ridges and water-carved natural wells that have developed stalactites and stalagmites of various sizes and shapes due to the region's limestone geology. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to try caving in Birqish for a truly unforgettable experience!





Wadi ar-Rayyan

Wadi ar-Rayyan and its ar-Rashrash waterfall are one of the few canyons in the Kingdom with cold water in a forest setting. This distinctive variation allows for a vastly different experience from the main canyoning areas of the southern and central regions of the Kingdom.

Sami’s Cliff

Due to the area’s limestone geology, Sami’s Cliff offers a solid and clean range of climbing experiences with levels catering to beginners and professionals alike!








Rasun Olive Press Trail

This is a trail made by the locals to showcase the historical and natural richness of Rasun. The trail begins by an olive press on the road to Irbid and passes by ancient Roman Tombs while ending in the old church of the village. This is a great 2-hour hike which is enriched when combined with local cuisine.
