Experience description

Get an astonishing bird’s eye view of Wadi Rum when the valley is at its most beautiful and
serene, with this memorable Jordan hot air balloon flight. Spanning 280 square miles, Wadi
Rum is the largest valley in Jordan, and responsible for kick-starting the country’s tourism
industry - it was used when David Lean filmed ‘Lawrence of Arabia’, and Lawrence himself is
known to have travelled through the area several times. You’ll fly silently above this
incredible desert scenery, framed by mountains and sand dunes, for a superb perspective
that most visitors can’t hope to enjoy.

Soar 6000 feet above majestic Wadi Rum, which has been inhabited since prehistoric times,
with a skilled pilot at the controls. You’ll catch sight of the ‘Seven Pillars of Wisdom’, rock
formations named in honour of Lawrence’s famous book. There is no better way to travel
than by hot air balloon. Romantic, peaceful, and offering incomparable views as it drifts
slowly through the sky. This is a unique Jordan gift experience and one not to be missed if
you plan to visit Wadi Rum.
