4.7/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web
The vast expanse of Wadi Araba Desert--a part of the Great Rift Valley that stretches from Aqaba to the Dead Sea--features a pristine semi-arid and sandy landscape. A number of tourist agencies in Aqaba offer tours of the desert, which you can brave on foot, in a jeep, or even on the back of a horse or camel. Enjoy the tranquility of the remote uninhabited desert while you roam among sand dunes and interesting rock formations. Most of the guided tours offer a chance to camp out in the desert overnight and visit a Bedouin camp. Put Wadi Araba Desert into our Aqaba vacation trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
