Day 1: FULL DAY CAMEL TOUR
The tour will start from Wadi Rum Village and the first stop will be at the Nabataean temple just outside the village. This will take about 15 min.
From here we continue to Lawrence’s spring, which is about 30 minutes.
This is where the camels usually hydrate and there are also some Talmudic inscriptions. We dismount the camels and have the option to either relax under Wadi Rums biggest acacia tree, or to take a small hike.
The next stop will be the sand dune. This will take around an hour to reach on camelback. Here we hike to the top of the dune and enjoy the amazing view of some of Wadi Rums most beautiful mountains.
After the sand dune we continue to the Khazali Canyon. This will take around 20 minutes to reach. This is one of the most packed places with petroglyphs and is also a very beautiful mountain.
After the canyon, your guide will choose a nice spot for you to enjoy lunch in the shade and relax for a bit. The lunch will be prepared by the guide.
After resting you will be going to Qajar Spring and the trip will be around one hour long. The Qajar Spring is located a 10 min hike up in the mountains. Through a little crack in the rock, it is possible to enter inside the mountain. The spring is visible here and the view is phenomenal. This spot is not very crowded and has cute little palm and fig trees growing.
From Qajar Spring we will ride the camels toward the cave for around 1 hour which is where you will enjoy the sunset, eat traditional bedouin cuisine and sleep under the stars.
You will start the day waking up to an excellent view over the desert. We will prepare a bedouin breakfast for you including traditional bread baked in the bonfire, called ‘harbut’.
Day 2: AL HASH-MOUNTAIN HIKE AND JEEP TOUR
The day hike begins with a scenic drive to Jebel Al-Hash. Hiking will start with a gentle incline up the side of a rocky mountain. At the top you will see spectacular views of Wadi Sabid, with Saudi Arabia visible in the distance. The next hour you will spend walking along the ridge, admiring the view.
After descending back to the valley, you will have most certainly worked up an appetite, and this lunch will not disappoint. A traditional Bedouin lunch will be prepared by your local guide, from scratch and in the classic method.
The first stop with our jeep tour will be the Nuora Canyon Viewpoint, a truly remarkable view looking over numerous canyons. The contrasting geological rock formations and stone make up is evident at this spot, you’ll able to see the different colours and rock shapes as you look out at the impressive mountains and valleys. This spot really is one for the camera and a sight you will never forget, as you really do feel like you’re on top of the world!
Next stop, Wadi Sabet inscriptions, a further 4 km drive. The inscriptions dating back to the Thamudic era give us a glimpse into the lives of those who lived centuries ago. Clearly visible and distinct, the inscriptions relate to the people’s lives, with animal engravings in a hidden site on red rock. Due to Wadi Sabet being in the baren and vast white desert, the lack of shade makes it a hard place to live, however the loca5on was an important road through the ancient region. This glance into the distant Thamudic Kingdom is a sight that can’t be missed.
After a short 3 km drive, we will arrive at the Daghdagh Viewpoint. This point provides incredible views over the vast valleys of the Wadi Sapet, and distant mountainous regions with Saudi Arabia visible in the distance. As another wonderful picture opportunity, the view here really doesn’t get much better.
On to Um Ghadah Dune Range to go sandboarding! We will arrive at the location after a 10 km drive, get the board out, and get riding. This quiet boarding spot is perfect for an exciting rush! The magical red sands of the Wadi Rum mean you’re sure to get some awesome boarding pictures. Interestingly, there is much more friction on sand than snow so do not be worried about not controlling your speed, and the sok sand makes it very safe.
Following a 3 km drive, we will visit Um Alsamn Rock Bridge. There are a few rock bridges around the Wadi Rum, however this one is different. A much smaller bridge than other well-known ones, this rock bridge is the perfect size to fit inside it. Standing as a natural archway, you’ll be able to touch all sides, it’s a pretty awesome spot.
After this we will drive 2.5 km to Chicken Rock. Also known as Cow Rock, Chicken Rock is a natural rock formation, where due to erosion, it has two short legs and sits three metres high. Interestingly, the name disputed arisen due to personal interpretation from different angles of the rock. Viewed from the east, many claim the cow is visible, however from the west, the chicken image is prevalent. Although this is very subjective, the local Bedouin community call it Chicken Rock, and people typically say the chicken is clearer.
All meals and drinks are provided by us: lunch, dinner, breakfast, water and tea and all the needed equipment for the tour and the camping.
