Hiking and climbing in the Wadi Rum desert

Trekking and hiking in the desert of Wadi Rum

Explore the desert on foot. On good walking shoes or barefoot? Every detail is visible. Both on the rocks and on the ground. The landscape glides slowly behind you. Here and there a "wild" camel. Traces of animals in the sand. Birds and butterflies around you. Somewhere a tuft of green. In spring, exuberant flowering plants. And sand ... red, white, yellow, orange. Stone plateaus you walk on. Silence, tranquility, while you put one foot in front of the other. Kilometer after kilometer. You discover life in the desert, the vast plains, walking in gorges, sometimes over hills, sometimes over sand dunes. Your eyes focus on distant and new horizons, interspersed with the rocky mountains in which natural bridges sometimes arise. A walk is an intimate way to get to know the desert. And then there is suddenly a beautiful sheltered shady place. The fire is made, the teapot filled. After a short time the tea will simmer and you will longing for the golden yellow sweet liquid, probably scented with some desert herbs.

Hiking in the Wadi Rum, Jordan* You can choose to make a small walk from the camp where you are staying.

* Or to take a longer walk with a guide at a certain place in the desert.

* Or do you opt for a multi-day hike through the Wadi Rum desert*?

* Finally, you can opt for a walking tour with a guide and a real desert hunting dog, a Saluki. It is special to see that he always moves in a circle around the group and occasionally walks with you. In the absence of prey, he chases after a lost jeep. Only then can you see with what speed and playfulness he approaches his "prey". And how he is in his element.

Price:

A walking tour with a guide, who also tells about life in the desert, is 15 Jordanian dinar per hour, regardless of the group size.

* If you want to make a multi-day trip, please contact us for the possibilities and the price with overnight stay.
