Wadi Rum Activities

  • Jeep Tour 

    Our Classic Jeep tour takes you through the best and most beautiful areas of Wadi Rum, and while we do not miss the core sites, we still take the time to take you a little way off the beaten track. So where do we go on this tour? The following are some of the highlights which may be included depending on the length of the tour. Lawrence Spring: The view across the Wadi from here is legendary! Khazali Canyon: This canyon has many ancient inscriptions inside and was once used by the local Bedouin to rest in the shade, especially during the hot summer. Additional top sites are the Red Sand Dunes, Anfishieh Inscriptions, Burdah Arch, House of Lawrence, Um Frouth Arch (for some scrambling), and a special place in a remote corner with a wonderful view across from the red desert to the white desert. This is a good place to relax and take in the splendor of Wadi Rum.

  • Camel Ride

    While many tourists in Wadi Rum looking for a "camel ride" will be happy riding around for an hour or so, many are interested in the true desert experience of a longer journey. Even on a short trip of a day or so, being able to guide your own camel, with a Bedouin guide riding alongside, is infinitely more rewarding. If you want to experience moving through the desert as it has been done for millennia, and the unique relationship with the animal that typifies this arid land, the "ship of the desert" is the most authentic mode of travel

  • Hiking, Trekking & Climbing

    The beautiful Wadi Rum provides an ideal environment for trekking. Millennia of erosion processes have formed spectacular mountains rising out of the Wadi Rum's desert sands. Trekking is one of the most rewarding ways of discovering the valleys, canyons, and vast sand dunes, while learning about the Bedouin who inhabit these arid lands. Trekking offers a real treat for all of your senses as well as giving you a well-deserved break away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Trekking can be done on a trip of a few hours, a full day trip while sleeping in Rum Oasis Luxury Camp, or an overnight mobile camping trip--sleeping out in the desert, complete with a cooking crew and porters. Whichever duration you desire, the guides will carefully plan the timing of hike, when to take breaks, when to eat, etc., based on your pace and trekking style.
