A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum Protected Area presents a dramatic picture of desert beauty, accessible to visitors for tours and activities. The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them. Experienced climbers may also be interested in checking out rock-climbing options in the wadi.

  • Wadi Rum is one of the most dramatic landscapes in the world. During the day it is a tremendous, silent, breathtaking panorama. During the night it is a place of tranquility and peace under the dark sky as the flames of the campfire mixe with all the desert stars. Nowhere do the stars shine as brightly as in Wadi Rum. Our tours aim to help you experience the wonders of our ancient Desert home. We offer tours by Jeep, Camel and on foot of the incredible sights of Wadi Rum. Come try traditional Bedouin cuisine and spend the overnight stay right in the Desert surrounded by peacefulness and stars.
  • This is fantastic and unique desert! I mean it. There is not so much about the sand but about red mountains formations like sculptures. What is unique? The rock seems to be like "melted". The view everywhere is beautiful and I couldn't stop admiring this God huge sculpture. :-) We took a jeep for 2h but it was far too less for what this desert has to offer. The driver will have some stops here and there to some "hot points" at some big tents where you can drink a tea, ride a camel and buy some souvenirs. My advice: go early in the morning, put on you some clothes to cover all your body, on the head some thick cotton, because for example in april, at 12pm it was crazy hot and we got burned once again after Petra. 😭 And take 4h to enjoy this amazing place.
