Petra & Wadi Rum Trek

Duration: 8 days
From: £889.00

Enjoy a magical desert trek through Jordan

Some of the most spectacular desert scenery can be found in Wadi Rum, just south of Jordan. This is a place of dramatic scenery that provides the perfect trekking atmosphere. Spend eight days camping and trekking with a local Bedouin guide as you make your way from Amman to Wadi Rum and back again.

Highlights:

  • Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Wadi Rum
  • Sleep in a Bedouin style camp under Jordanian skies
  • Discover the famous rose-red city of Petra

First up is a visit to the 7 Pillars of Wisdom in Amman. This is an unbelievable rock formation with seven fluted turrets. During the week you’ll also visit Siq el Barrah, a desert canyon with immense rock walls, the arch of Burdah, and the Um Fruth rock bridge. The ultimate highlight is a visit to Petra, the world’s foremost ancient site.

A moderate level of fitness is required for this adventure, but you don’t absolutely need previous trekking experience. Let this be your first.

You and your group will walk up to six hours a day over dirt paths, sand, and some rocky terrain. The trip is fully supported by Jeep vehicle and your guides are experts not only in trekking, but in local geography and history as well.

Tour operator

If you’re looking for a company with experience you can’t beat these guys. This operator started life in February 1974 when two friends got together to provide an overland truck to travel to the Minaret of Jam, deep in the heart of the Hindu Kush, the most inaccessible of the world’s great monuments.

For the company, and people who work for them “it’s all about adventure” which is what they were founded on and what they are still about today. Their trips take place all around the world where they help travelers to delve into local traditions, cultures, cuisine, lifestyles – anything that contributes to a country’ unique identity.

We love that their groups and guides travel courteously and respectfully, in smaller groups to minimise the impact, to ensure that every holiday is a beneficial experience for everyone involved.
