Discover Wadi Rum in a 4×4 vehicle, stopping regularly to admire the wonders of the desert or to make short walks between dunes and rocks.
You will be accompanied by a Bedouin guide who will take you around the most famous places of Wadi Rum. In the afternoon or the next day depending on the length of your stay, you will go for short hikes away from the crowds, in places where you will feel alone in the world.
This option is recommended for people who are only staying for a day or two or for people who do not want to trek. The walks can last from 30 minutes to 2 hours.
We advise our visitors to stay at least two days and two nights to experience a real immersion in the desert.
The day starts by Jeep with the first stop being the Red Sand Dune. An impressive sand hill, very fun to climb with a great view on the desert. Then we head to the first canyon to discover the Anfashieh inscriptions and the Barrah Canyon, a beautiful place to walk, rich in plants and shrubs.
After the break we head to the Rock Bridge of Jebel Burdah (“Jebel” means “mountain”) to admire the highest natural stone bridge in Wadi Rum. Afterwards, we will hike to the Abu Rasheba Canyon. The last point will be the Um Fruth Rock Bridge which you can climb in less than 5 minutes.
To end the day in style you will have the opportunity to admire the sunset from a breathtaking viewpoint.
We will spend the end of the day together, around the fire on which dinner will be cooked, in the Bedouin way, simple, traditional and delicious. Discussions, exchanges on our respective cultures, songs, Bedouin tales and poems, music if your guide is an Oud or Rababa player will give rhythm to the evening. If you wish, you can even walk barefoot in the sand around the camp, under the moonlight.
The next morning.
Wake up with the sunrise, with a delicious breakfast. If you have booked for only 1 day, you will take the road back to the village.
The second day.
We will take you to the southern part of the Wadi Rum desert to discover places like Jebel Hash, Nughra, Um Ratha… Here are only a few examples but there are many places to discover. You will make your choices according to your desires by discussing with your guide.
Sleeping in the desert for a second night is a very good choice, you will feel much more comfortable than the first day, and you will be used to sleeping under the stars by discovering new places to bivouac each night.
It is also possible to spend a night or more with a Bedouin family living in the desert.
This programme is an itinary’s example to give you an idea of what a day with us in Wadi Rum is like. We are happy to adapt to your wishes, as far as possible.
We can ask you to join a group of 2-3 people. If you are alone or in pairs and prefer not to be mixed with another group, we will ask you for a small supplement.
Our visitors range in age from a few months to over 70 years! We adapt to their pace and abilities. As the routes taken often require walking on unstable terrain, it is of course necessary to be able to move around on your own and without equipment.
For babies, parents sometimes choose to come with a folding bed. We advise you to have something to carry your children on your back if you want to go on even short walks.
We also regularly welcome pregnant women and, on the same principle, we adapt to the desired rhythm.
