Wadi Rum, called Valley of the Moon by the Bedouin, is a place of legends. Inhabited for over 2,500 years, it lies on an ancient camel trading route to the Arabian Peninsula, about 63 km driving from Aqaba. This is a stupendous, timeless place, virtually untouched by humanity and its destructive forces. Here, it is the weather and winds that have carved the imposing, towering skyscrapers, so elegantly described by T.E. Lawrence.
A maze of monolithic rocks capes rise up from the desert floor to heights of 1,750m creating a natural challenge for serious mountaineers. Hikers can enjoy the tranquility of the boundless empty spaces and explore the canyons and water holes to discover 4000-year-old rock drawings and the many other spectacular treasures this vast wilderness holds in store.
There are several options for exploring Wadi Rum; you can join us for a 4x4 ride, together with a driver/guide, and then driving inside the desert to explore some of the best known sites, is an option. Alternatively a camel and a guide can be hired as another option. Once transport has been arranged by us, there are various excursions available - for example, a trip to Burdah Rock Bridge, the highest in Wadi Rum.
You can sleep overnight at one of our partner's desert camps, and enjoy a full night program, diner and entertainment, end by end of the night, you'll have a lifetime opportunity to watch a sparking sky of the stars!
