Tours to Jordan 2 - 7 Day 4X4 Jeep Tour
This jeep tour is focused in Southern part of
Jordan, Petra, Wadi Rum, The Edom Mountains and the Canyons of the
Dead Sea area. (Hotel accommodation upon request)
Explore the beautiful and vast Wadi Rum, with its red sand dunes and
natural pillars of sandstone rock, sculptured by millions of years
of gentle erosion. This enchanting and mystical region was the
favorite place of T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) and here we find
the towering pillars named after his famous book 'The Seven Pillars
of Wisdom'. We tour this magnificent region for two days and spend
two Arabian Nights in the soft sands under the starry desert skies.
Continuing on from Wadi Rum we arrive in Petra, “The Rose City”.
This legendary city was carved thousands of years ago from the red
Sandstone Mountains by the ancient Nabateans. Having walked through
the magnificent canyon that leads there, the beauty of this ancient
city is suddenly revealed to you.
Having explored this historical phenomenon we
return to our jeep and begin our journey on the steep mountain 4X4
routes that proceed down the Edom Mountains. These dramatic scenic
routes, such as Wadi Dalara and Wadi Namla take us all the way down
to the Arava Valley that runs the whole length these beautiful
mountains.Driving to the north of the Arava Valley we reach the Moav
Mountains of the Dead Sea area and their famous canyons such as Wadi
Arnon, which is almost sub-tropic.
Iben Hamad and Wadi Hadira are the most
impressive of all of these canyons, hidden in the heart of the
Jordanian desert, these narrow and deep canyons flow year-round with
warm spring water and natural rock pools are scattered throughout
their length. We spend several hours each day walking through each
of these canyons.
Having reached the enormous red sand dunes of the
Northern Arava Valley, an exciting drive through these dunes takes
us on to the breathtaking canyons of Wadi Ahmer and Wadi Nachla.
Walking through the narrower canyons you will see canyons of
imposing red granite rock and soft colorful sandstone, side by side,
in this region of delightful contrast.
