Day 1: Rakabat Canyon

We will meet you in Wadi Rum Village at the Rest House at 9am, which is 6km after the Visitor Center where you must pay a 5 JD entrance fee per person.

From the rest house, we will park your vehicle in a private gated lot at my guest house in the village and then enjoy traditional Bedouin Tea after which we will begin our journey.

inscriptionThe morning consists of a two-hour trek along an easy Bedouin road, passing through Rakabat Canyon, a narrow gully used by Bedouins to bring their goats to pasture. After descending to Um Ishrin Valley, we will walk across the sand for two hours to visit the Infishnia inscriptions which are over 2000 years old.

Then we will stop for lunch under Infasheh Mountain. In the afternoon we will walk through the biggest sand dune in Wadi Rum. We will cross to Um Rashad Canyon and then make our way to our Bedouin camp.

After breakfast, we will take a twenty minute jeep ride to the base of the Burdah Rock Bridge. There will be a short climb, with ropes for safety, just before the arch. We will enjoy many awe-inspiring views overlooking the whole region while on top of the arch which is the largest in the whole of Wadi Rum.

We then descend via a steep crack or return the way we came, which is an easier option. Once we have descended the Rock Bridge, we will stop in the shade for lunch and Bedouin tea. After lunch we will drive and hike back to the camp, making stops at Um Fruth Rock Bridge and Khaz’ali Canyon.

Bedouin RoadsDay 3: Hiking in Barragh Canyon & Um Ishrin Valley 

In the morning, we will drive to Barragh Canyon where you will hike the length of the canyon, then continue to the edge of the Um Ishrin Valley where we will stop for lunch and Bedouin tea. In the afternoon, you will have a choice of a few different routes before returning to the camp. There is many different hiking opportunities in this area, and we will help you chose the right one before we leave in the morning.
