Tour description full day jeep tour
If your time to visit Wadi Rum is limited to one whole day, the full day jeep tour gives you the best introduction possible.
During the day you visit some of the most famous sites in the protected area. We use a jeep to cover the distances between the places. And at each location, there is time to explore, hike, scramble, climb and enjoy. At lunchtime, we serve you a Bedouin meal. Afterward, we continue the tour. Before we return to Rum village, we, of course, enjoy the feast of changing colors by watching the sunset in Um Sabatah.
Altogether, this day is an active day full of variety in the stunningly beautiful Wadi Rum desert.

The detailed full day jeep tour plan
Meeting point and start time
We meet each at our office in Rum village for the check-in. Together we enjoy a Bedouin tea and talk about what we have in mind for the day and night. After finishing our drink, there is time for the final preparations. Afterward, we leave Rum village to go out into the desert.
During summertime (daylight saving time), the tour starts at 10 AM (check-in at 9.30 AM), and during wintertime, the tour begins at 9 AM (check-in at 8.30 AM).
In the morning
A short ride brings us to the natural spring called Lawrence spring. You scramble up the mountain site to the spring from where you enjoy the spectacular views of Wadi Rum. We continue our drive and head to the nearby red dune. Here you can climb the dune, enjoy more stunning views, and enjoy running down. Our next stop is Khazali canyon, which is famous for the ancient inscriptions and waterholes. Another short drive brings us to the first rock bridge of the day, Little bridge. We scramble up the bridge and enjoy the marvelous valley views. The last site we visit in the morning is Lawrence house.
We drive further into the desert to a quiet and picturesque place where we take our lunch break. Your guide prepares a Bedouin lunch for you on the spot. After lunch, there is time to take a rest or walk around to explore the area on your own.
Because of the days being short during wintertime, we continue the tour right after lunch. Likewise, during summertime, we take an extended break to wait for the heat of the day to go.
In the afternoon
We start the afternoon with a beautiful drive to the Mushroom rock. After a short stop, we continue our ride through the yellow desert to the point from where we can see the Burdah rock bridge. Of course, we take time to admire the rock bridge. Then we drive to the surprisingly green and narrow Abu Khashaba canyon. You walk through the canyon. This delightful walk takes about half an hour to 45 minutes. Because you can only walk through this canyon, your guide drives around the mountain and waits for you on the other side of the canyon. Another short drive takes us to the Um Fruth rock bridge. A short but challenging scramble takes you up the bridge. As the sun starts to set, we head to Um Sabatah, to watch the sunset.
From the sunset place, we return to our office in Rum village. We arrive there around 45 minutes to 1 hour after the sunset. You can look up at what time the sun will set on your preferred tour date on the website timeanddate.com. After the check-out, we say goodbye, and you can continue your journey.
