Tourist activities in Wadi Rum

The Wadi Rum region is famous for its variety of exciting tourist activities, including mountain climbing and exploring the wondrous rock formations that are abundant in the region.

One of the most notable of these formations is the Rock Bridge, also known as the Burda Bridge, which is considered one of the highest stone arches in the region and one of the highest rocks in the world at up to 80 metres. It takes about three hours to climb to its summit, and upon reaching the summit, you will be dazzled by the magical view of the golden desert sands and mountains of granite and marble that appear as works of art in a stunning sand museum.

In addition, you can enjoy horse and camel riding or take safari trips through the desert sands and dunes on exciting tours between the towering mountains, whether by riding a four-wheel drive vehicle or on foot. You can coordinate all of these trips easily and professionally from within your accommodation camp.

Among the beautiful activities that will enrich your adventurous experience is watching mountain ranges and desert sand from the sky on a balloon ride, which may last from thirty minutes to a full hour. This flight depends on weather conditions, wind speed and direction, so it may not always be available in all seasons and all year round.

Finally, astronomical activities are among the most beautiful activities that can be done in Wadi Rum . Many tourists flock to the astronomical observatory in the region to have a rare experience in observing the planets and stars in an environment free of light pollution, which allows them to see the stars and planets clearly using the naked eye. The observatory provides a telescope equipped with the latest technological technologies, enabling visitors to explore our solar system and its planets, in addition to some distant galaxies, and this experience restores the connection between man and nature in an incomparable way!
