Wadi Rum Desert Adventure

Wadi Rum is a vast, silent landscape of desert and rocks sculpted by wind and time immemorial into enchanting formations of unsurpassed beauty, their color ranging from deep yellow to dark red.

Already inhabited in prehistoric times, witnessed by finds of stone tools dating to the Paleolithic and Neolithic periods almost 7000 years BC, the great valley that once was, was roamed for millennia by hunters and nomads leaving behind a legacy of interesting traces to attest of their passage.

Today it is home to the Bedouin who live in tents made from goat’s hair, tending their herds and preserving a desert lifestyle that has lasted for thousands of years.

This is where the movie “Lawrence of Arabia” and Red Planet were filmed. Change into 4 wheel drive jeeps at the visitors centre before you drive into this unique landscape.

Experience the eerie silence when the engines are switched off and marvel at nature’s wondrous creations. Capture precious moments on film as you stop along the way.

Take a rest in a Bedouin Tent and refresh yourself with a cup of tea before re-boarding the waiting coach for Aqaba.
