Full description
You will set off in a private, comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle to the protected desert valley of the moon, located 4 hours south of Amman. Enjoy the views as you travel southward through Jordan’s desert landscapes, toward the towering cliffs of Wadi Rum. Extending across a huge chunk of south Jordan, this protected valley boasts towering sandstone mountains, craggy river beds, and steep gorges; all coated in a kaleidoscope of natural rock colors, from pinks to vivid reds.

You can explore its spectacular spots in a 2-hour tour in a 4x4 Jeep, complete with a Bedouin Driver as your guide. You can engage in a photo shoot at the Martian Movie Spot, explore the walk on mars, trundle through narrow gorges and red desert plains past crimson dunes, natural rock bridges and towers. Among this emptiness and silence, visit the seven pillars of wisdom, and the holographic pictures carved before Christ. You can view ancient inscriptions, and the Lawrence of Arabia Spring; a hidden oasis made famous by T.E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia (where the movie has taken place).

During World War II, the British officer and archaeologist fought here alongside the Bedouin Arabs against the Ottoman Turks, basing his headquarters in the valley. Many Wadi Rum sites are named after this still-revered British soldier. Have your camera ready as you pass through narrow gorges and plains, framed by natural rock arches, towering buttes, ancient caves, and red dunes. You can visit a Bedouin tent to enjoy a glass of refreshing local mint tea and meet the friendly locals. If you wish, you can upgrade your tour to include a 30-minute camel ride in the desert to make your visit extra special. When the time comes, reconvene with your driver and relax on your ride back to Amman, where your day trip finishes back at your hotel.
