Experience description

If you’re visiting Jordan this is a simply unmissable excursion. Wadi rum is a large protected area of desert, made up of vast canyons, valleys, sand dunes and mountains, a legendary pilgrimage site for trekkers and climbers, and home to the Howaitat Bedouin who carve out a living with eco-adventures for the visitors that flock here. This authentic experience takes you by jeep into the heart of the valley, allowing you to see a natural spring known as "Lawrence Spring" - named after TE Lawrence (of Arabia) who frequently passed through here. Also a well-established location for major feature films looking for an expansive and unforgiving canvas, the Wadi Rum is perhaps best seen by camel, so this Tinggly tour naturally includes one!

You’ll be camping overnight in a traditional Bedouin tent positioned in the protected area. Expect warm hospitality with a delightful evening meal prepared in the local fashion and plenty of sweet Bedouin tea, and blankets so you can sit around the firepit and watch the mountains and sand take on a constellation of colours as night falls, or observe unparalleled views of the stars above. So you can relax, commune with nature and enjoy some of the Middle East’s most spectacular landscape.
