Holidays to Wadi Rum

Rising abruptly from the desert plains, the red-ochre sandstone mesas of Wadi Rum provides one of the world's most dramatic landscapes. It was famously described by T.E. Lawrence as "Rum the magnificent... vast, echoing and God-like."

Within the Sandstone Mountain and Valley Region of southern Jordan, Wadi Rum hosts enormous rock formations, pristine night skies and rolling sand dunes. Comparable in size to New York City, this valley epitomizes the deepest shades of red in Jordan due to its concentration of iron oxide. Also known as the ‘Valley of the Moon’, Wadi Rum is often used as a backdrop for otherworldly film sets, such as Dune, The Martian and Star Wars! Staying in a Bedouin camp is a truly enchanting experience on a holiday to Wadi Rum. Add to the magic by climbing the Burdah rock bridge, camel riding and hiking up sand dunes and rocky outcrops for breathtaking views.
