Take an 8-hour long Tour in our 4×4, experiencing the “Highlights” of the Wadi Rum Protected Area.
Take the opportunity to try Sand-Boarding in the sand dunes of the Wadi Rum desert, which is definitely a once in a lifetime experience!
Come with us on an adventure to the most beautiful desert landscape in the world.
Our starting point is the Wadi Rum Rest House (Google location here) in the Wadi Rum Village which is located about 7 km from the Visitor Center.
During this 8-hour jeep tour, we will visit and explore all the most popular sites, take amazing photos, try our home-cooked lunch and watch the famous Wadi Rum Sunset.
If you choose to spend the night with us, we will drive you to our traditional Bedouin Cave or Camp, light up a warm fire, offer you some Bedouin tea and prepare dinner. We will provide you with mattresses, warm blankets & pillows, as nights in the desert are cold, no matter the season. Usually every night we gather all together, play Bedouin music and tell stories about the Wadi Rum desert and the Bedouin culture.
Don’t miss the opportunity to go for a night-time walk in the desert under our guidance and watch the amazing starry night sky, far away from any light polution.
Next day, after breakfast, we will take you back to the Rest House in the Wadi Rum village.
The spring is at the top of a short scramble – head for the fig tree, located just 2km south-west of the village of Wadi Rum. The spring was named in honour of Lawrence’s evocative description in the Seven Pillars of Wisdom: ‘’In front of us a path, pale with use, zigzagged up the cliff-plinth…From between [the] trees, in hidden crannies of the rock, issued strange cries; the echoes, turned into music, of the voices of the Arabs watering camels at the springs which flowed out three hundred feet above ground’’. Although the pool itself is largely unprepossessing, being a stagnant puddle, the views across the desert are truly spectacular.
Among the vast expanses of rust-coloured sand in the Wadi Rum desert, the Red Sand Dune, or ‘Al Hasany’ in Arabic, is one of the most famous ones. Officially named Al Ramal it has become better known by its descriptive name. It stands out against a cliff side like it is part of the mountain. Coloured red by the presence of iron oxide, this dune is fine and soft underfoot making it perfect to walk up barefoot!
Khazali Canyon is the site of petroglyphs etched into the cave walls depicting humans and antelopes dating back to the Thamudic times. This narrow canyon contains numerous Nabataean rock carvings of people and animals.
Jebel Khazali, a peak situated in the center of Wadi Rum Protected Area opens up in a narrow fissure of about 100 m length. Its inner walls are covered with Thamudic, Nabatean, and Islamic inscriptions, as well petroglyphs depicting humans and animals. Remarkable are the soles of feet petroglyphs, which probably had religious significance.
Easy to climb, Little Rock Bridge offers great views across a broad expanse of desert. It is easily accessible and not dangerous, it is perfect for families with children and people who feel less comfortable with heights under their feet.
Nobody is certain that this was Lawrence’s house, although there are stories that he both stayed and/or stored weapons here. The current structure is built upon the remains of a Nabataean building, however, and it’s another beautiful spot in the desert. There is little left of this building, erected on the Nabataean ruins of a water cistern. Nonetheless, legend has it that Lawrence stayed here during the Arab Revolt and that makes it a must on the regular 4WD circuits of the area. Near the building is a Nabataean inscription that mentions the area’s ancient name of Iram. The remote location and uninterrupted view of the red sand dunes are the main attractions.
We will stop for lunch (Gallaya, Hummus, Tuna, Salad, Jordanian bread, Juice).
You will have the opportunity to taste our famous home-cooked lunch and our "secret recipe".
Sometimes nature performs small miracles. One of them is the Mushroom Rock. Over the centuries, rain and winds have carved this sandstone and gave it the shape of mushroom.
The largest of Rum’s three arches is the Burdah Rock Bridge, precariously perched about 80m above the surrounding rock. There’s a precipitous hike to the summit. It’s height and location offers one of the most terrific sunsets you will ever experience.
Wild fig trees and desert bushes among huge rocks and red and yellow sand make this canyon unique. Abu Khashaba Canyon is one of the canyons that are worth to visit and you will need about an hour to walk through.
A lower rock bridge which is featured on many tours and can be easily scrambled onto. The climbing takes 5-15 minutes and the view that it offers to the surrounding area is amazing.
We will sit down, relax and enjoy the famous Wadi Rum Sunset.
