During the evenings we will enjoy traditional Bedouin food and music before camping out under the millions of stars in the clear night sky.

- Um Ishrin
- Burdah Bridge
- Many more
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.
We will start hiking from the Wadi Rum Village, hiking up through Makharas Canyon to the valley of Um Ishrin. This trail takes about 3 hours and we will have lunch along the way. In the afternoon, we continue to the sand dune area, where we have supper and camp out under the stars.
Day 2: After breakfast, we will start a lengthy hike with a bit of scrambling as well. You will walk through some fantastic landscapes before we stop for lunch after about 3 hours. Following a relaxing lunch, we will hike onward for about 2 hours to where we will set up camp and spend the night. We will enjoy an evening filled with Bedouin traditions before another night beneath the starry sky.
Day 3: After breakfast, we will scramble to the top of Burdah Bridge, the largest and most impressive natural rock arch in Wadi Rum. At the top there are some fantastic views and it is also a great photo opportunity. After we descend, we will unwind with a delicious lunch and then set off on our final hike back to the Rum Village.
