Travel from Petra to Wadi Rum
A journey of approximately three hours, travelling by 4x4 across the desert. Admire the sweeping vistas of this harsh landscape, stopping to visit a collection of well-preserved petroglyphs en route.
The largest and most magnificent of Jordan's desert landscapes, Wadi Rum is a protected area covering 720 square kilometres of dramatic desert wilderness. Huge mountains of sandstone and granite emerge, sheer-sided, from wide sandy valleys to reach heights of 1700 metres and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains many of which conceal ancient rock drawings etched by the peoples of the desert over millennia. Bedouin tribes still live among the mountains of Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape.
This unspoilt area offers challenging climbs, colourful hills and canyons for trekking on foot, on horseback or by camel and, in the springtime, a colourful explosion of 2,000 species of wildflower.
