Wadi Rum

Feel the romance of the Arabian Desert in the springtime or anytime, at Wadi Rum in Jordan. Let the fabled T.E. Lawrence come alive, whether through memories stirred from the screen version or from the pages of history and the actual exploits of the legendary British officer.

Wadi Rum is like a moonscape of ancient valleys and towering weathered sandstone mountains rising out of the white and pink colored sands. Much of David Lean’s Lawrence of Arabia was filmed here and it was also the location where T.E. Lawrence himself was based during the Arab revolt.

Today Wadi Rum challenges climbers to scale its sheet granite and sandstone cliffs, to hike along mountain trails and valleys, to trek deep into the enchanting landscape in four-wheel-drive vehicles, or to join 2 or 3 day desert safaris on camels’ back or 4*4 vehicles.
