Hiking

Our hikes will take you to some of Wadi Rum’s best-kept secrets and least-visited sites in addition to its top attractions. We know how to get far from the crowds, where all you will hear is the silence of the desert. All of our hiking trips begin around 8:30-9am (or as soon as you arrive at the Wadi Rum Visitor’s Center). We’ll first take you to our family house for tea, and if there’s time before departure we’ll show you to Shalala Spring, 20 minute hike away, or the Nabatean Temple at the foot of Jebel Rum, just a ten-minute walk from our house. Also before leaving, we’ll take a look at the map to discuss our routes, which are sometimes flexible according to your own tastes.

 
  INCLUDED: Our tours include meals, plenty of water, tea, English-speaking guides and sleeping equipment for overnight trips. BRING: Torch, camera, hiking shoes, warm clothing in winter, sleeping bag (optional for overnight trips), sunscreen and a good hat. NOTES: Outside of summer months, lunch stops typically last about 1 1/2 hours, but during the long days of summer months, our lunch hours are extended with a short siesta, the combination lasting a maximum of 2 1/2 hours. Since summer months receive more daylight hours, we are still able to visit the all the attractions listed in your tour. On tours lasting more than one night, visitors can choose to spend one night in the open desert in addition to the night spent in our camp.
