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.
