Wadi Rum

The city of Petra and Wadi Rum, together offer an awesome setting for a trekking holiday in the Middle East.

One can enjoy trekking in one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes here in Wadi Rum. The red-ochre sandstone clearly makes visible the meaning of Wadi Rum; it is Rum valley.

Having an authentic biblical history, the enchanting desert of Wadi Rum has weird but wonderful sandstone formation rising up to the sky.

Known as a traditional hunting ground, the tour takes visitors along prehistoric trails through concealed canyons and across open rocky slopes.

Throughout the visit, one can enjoy the beauty of the largest landscape formations in Jordan and get the best views across the city.

The best part of this marvellous adventure is the guided tour of the overwhelming 2,300 year old city of Petra, hewn into the rock. Desert walking, camel riding and easy climbs can also be enjoyed by travellers.
