Ajloun Tour

Ajloun Tour

Located within an hour drive northwest of Amman, just 20 km from the ruins of Jerash, Ajloun is a mountainous area with beautiful open woodlands of evergreen oak, pine, carob, wild pistachio and wild strawberry trees. Its mild climate (pleasant in the summer, with rain and even snow in the winter), fertile soil and abundance of springs have long attracted people to settle here. Many towns and villages dot the hillsides surrounded by olive groves and orchards of fig, pomegranate, and apricot trees.
