This trip takes in all the major sights and experiences of Wadi Rum, including Rakabet Canyon, Jebel Burdah Rock Bridge, and Jebel Al Hash.

Day 1

We start hiking from Wadi Rum village through Rakabet Canyon to Wadi Um Ishrin. Along the way, you will enjoy your first taste of the sights and sounds of Wadi Rum desert.  In Wadi Um Ishrin we will stop for a picnic lunch and sweet Bedouin tea. After lunch, we will continue hiking on to the Burrah Canyon. We will take a scenic walk through the canyon and at the far end we will stop to have dinner and camp for our first night.

Day 2

After breakfast we will hike to see the Anfasheih Inscriptions, which date back to 300BC.  Once you are done admiring the inscriptions, we will trek on to Lawrence’s House, where Lawrence of Arabia supposedly stayed for a brief period of time while in Wadi Rum.  Here, we will stop for lunch and enjoy a relaxing two hour break.

We will then continue on to Burdah Rock Bridge, stopping at the base of the mountain to make camp and prepare dinner.  After enjoying a delicious meal, we will take our second night's rest and prepare for the next day's hike.

Day 3

After breakfast, we will begin our rock scramble up to the Burdah Bridge. The rock scramble is easy - no prior rock climbing experience is necessary - and the trip up takes about an hour and a half.  At the top, we will enjoy incredible views of the surrounding desert.  After descending, we will have lunch and rest for three hours. We will then continue to the Al Forah area (outside of the Wadi Rum protected area), where we will prepare dinner and camp for the night.

Day 4

Following breakfast in the morning, we will hike and scramble up to the summit of Jebel Al Hash. Again, the hike and rock scramble are fairly easy, and the views from the top of Jebel Al Hash are stunning.  After our descent from Jebel Al Hash, we will prepare lunch and tea and take a break.  We will then continue hiking to the west area of Wadi Rum (the White Desert) where we will have dinner and camp for our fourth night.

Day 5

After breakfast, we will hike through the canyons to the Um Frouth Rock Bridge, one of Wadi Rum's most popular sites.  Here, you will have the chance to walk/climb up the top of the rock bridge, a favorite for many of our guests.  Once we are finished at the rock bridge, we will enjoy lunch and take a rest for two hours, during which you can relax in the shade or explore the desert on your own. After lunch, we will continue hiking through the Al Kskashih canyon, where we will make camp for our last night in the desert.

Day 6

In the morning, we will enjoy breakfast and then begin our hike to the little rock bridge.  We will stop here briefly to explore and take photos, and then trek back to Rum village.  You will arrive back in the village around 12:00PM, and can then continue on to your next destination.
