Spectacular desert landscape
Wadi Rum is much more than a sandy desert. The rugged landscape with its rock arches, caverns, huge sand hills and gorges is as impressive as it is mysterious. 'Valley of the Moon' is therefore a very appropriate nickname. The color palette of the surrounding canyons and huge sand hills seems to change from minute to minute. Whether you spend the night in the desert in a traditional Bedouin tent or a futuristic bubble hotel, as soon as it gets dark you will enjoy the phenomenal starry sky.Wadi Rum is the largest wadi in Jordan , a dry riverbed and also a protected nature reserve. There are different ways to experience the variety and power of the desert. You can follow in the footsteps of Lawrence of Arabia, the famous British adventurer who preceded you decades earlier, on various walks or trek through the desert by 4x4 or camel. You pass wide wadis, colorful sandstone gorges and jagged rock formations. You will find signs of original inhabitants, the Nabataeans, such as petroglyphs, inscriptions and ruins. Even today there are still some Bedouins living in Wadi Rum.
