A vast natural valley dotted with sandstone and granite cliffs, Wadi Rum presents a dramatic picture of desert beauty, accessible to visitors for tours and activities. The area is inhabited by Bedouin tribes, some of which still sleep in traditional goat-hair tents. The natives also run much of the local eco-tourism economy--research ahead to book a hiking, camelback, or jeep tour with them. Experienced climbers may also be interested in checking out rock-climbing options in the wadi. Work out when and for how long to visit Wadi Rum and other Wadi Rum attractions using our handy Wadi Rum tour planner.

  • You must come here. You know you want to. Try and stay for more than one night and do some hiking in the wadi. 
  • Breath taking views. I took a jeep ride through the dessert and was just amazed at the Bedouin culture. Very friendly people. Our guide stopped to make us lunch near TE Lawrence's home and cooked it there in the dessert Bedouin tent. Excellent, but not the most hygienic place. Very little water to wash, or cook, but it was good. Be prepared to climb rock formations and sand dunes. Camera a must
  • I was moved by my experience here. I can't really account for it but it was very spiritual. I think you have to be there to understand what I mean. We travelled by jeep into the desert to the Seven Pillars of Wisdom, a rock formation close to where T. E. Lawrence had his secret HQ when he was attacking the Turks during WW1. We had tea in a Bedouin tent and looked at rock drawings thousands of years old. We spent the night under canvas. As a life experience it is one of my most cherished.
  • Amazing. It is a remarkable place. Litterally Mars. You trully feel like you are entering a different world. I highly reccomend to camp there for the night to get to see the amazing night sky. I was lucky to be friend one of the Bedouins, allowing me to sneak off from my group. He showed me all the great sceneries. Many of the camps play music at night for entertainment, but I reccomend to just leave the tent and lay on the sand observing a night sky that you will never forget.
  • Filmset of the Martian and you can see why they chose this place. It is stunning. We took a walk into the desert and it was fantastic. Red sand, wondering camels and stunning rocks.
  • 0. Excellent tour guide- Eid is sincere and genuine Beduin person. Thank you so much!! 1. Full service: me and my friends lost way to there and discovery team took care of us even it was before the day we booked. 2. Warm and clean: team gave us 2 blankets and it was so warm. Also it was very clean including all the rooms and especially 'toilet'!! (normally its hard to expect good toilet in the desert.) 3. Exciting tour!!
