Wadi Rum is a valley cut into the sandstone and granite rock in southwest Jordan. It is the largest ‘Wadi’ in Jordan. There is only one road into Wadi Rum, which runs off of the Desert Highway, 42km north of Aqaba.
Jordan is a fascinating country to visit. A hugely significant country in many religions and cultures, it has a rich history for you to explore and some wonderful places to visit.
After selling Jordan tours for many years and having to cancel 2 previous trips, I finally made it to Jordan this year and it was definitely worth the wait!
If ever there was an ‘Am I Still on Planet Earth?’ sort of a desert, it’s Wadi Rum. Mention Jordan to 20-to-30-something adventurers, and many will tell you that the country begins and ends right here.
