Our driver will meet you inside Aqaba Port then travel by air-conditioned vehicle toward Wadi Rum. This UNESCO-protected region consists of deserts littered with craggy mountains and valleys that have been home to Bedouins for centuries.
Arrive to Wadi Rum go in a 4x4 with a Bedouin driver to begin your tour for 4 hours. Pass Rum village, whose houses are flanked by towering Granite Mountains, and view a ruined Nabataean temple, thought to date to the 14th century BC. Drive between two of Jordan’s highest mountains, Mount Rum and Um Ashreen, and after a break for tea. Then visit the Al Khazali Canyon, a narrow ravine framed by high, red-walled cliffs. Take an optional trek up to a natural rock bridge, and continue to the Burdah Rock Bridge, the wadi’s highest rock arch. If you wish, make an optional guided climb to the top to experience the awe-inspiring views over the surrounding mountains. Stop for lunch, before visiting one of the wadi’s famous sunset-watching sites. Admire the incredible sunset views before returning to the wadi entrance and swapping vehicles for your return to your hotel, Aqaba Border or port.
