Day 1: When you reach Wadi Rum you will arrive at the Wadi Rum Visitor Centre, the gateway to the Wadi Rum Protected Area. Here is where you will pay the entrance fees or enter with the Jordan Pass. After the Visitor Centre, you will continue onward for about 6km to the Wadi Rum Village until you reach the Wadi Rum Rest House. Here I will greet you and lead you inside for a short rest and a cup of delicious Bedouin tea. With a map, I will chat with you about the day's plans. Once the tea is finished, we will set off into the desert.
The tour will start from the Wadi Rum Village, scrambling up through Rakkabt Canyon. On this trail, we will see nice views of Rum Village, Jebel Rum and Valley of Um Ishrin. This trail takes about 2 hours to complete. After the canyon, we continue to the sand dune area, where we will have lunch and rest with Bedouin tea. After lunch we will be picked up by a jeep. With the jeep, we will visit many of the famous sites of Wadi Rum including Lawrence's House and Khazali Canyon.
Following the jeep tour, we will make our way to the camp where you can enjoy a fantastic view of the setting sun moving behind the desert mountains. After the sunset, you will gather in our big tent where we serve a buffet style meal of traditional Bedouin dishes. After dinner, you can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere as your guide plays some local music on a traditional instrument. When you are ready for bed, you can head back to your private tent or camp out beneath the starry night sky.
