Tour Highlights

We start at Wadi Rum village and drive to Umm Addami Mountain. On the way, we stop at Nughara Canyon and break there to watch Nughara view. Then we continue to Um Addami Mountain to start the hike and enjoy the view from the top. The hike up the mountain takes about 3-4h. After getting back down, we have lunch, then cross the White Desert with some more nice views, and depending on the time stop at some places. After locating a nice spot to watch the sunset, we go back to the village or head to our Bedouin camp (extra charge 25JD), depending on your choice.

At the camp, you can enjoy traditional Bedouin food as part of a big buffet, relax over a cup of Bedouin tea while enjoying the silence of the desert, and listen to traditional Bedouin music under the stars. And of course you will sleep in one of our comfortable private tents and get to eat from our breakfast buffet in the morning.

Tour Introduction

This is the highest mountain in Jordan (1854m), also within the high area of the Wadi Rum desert. It is located at the border of Saudi Arabia. It is also pretty easy and suitable for almost everyone. The tour also includes some stops at other scenic spots in the desert. Getting to Umm Addami in the jeep you go through the white desert and pass Nughara Canyon. Starting the hike, the first thirty minutes you will have to use your hands a bit, scrambling and climbing up over some easy rocks, then continue hiking to the top going up hills with beautiful views. From the summit, you can enjoy a 360° view in all directions. To the South side, you can see Saudi Arabia, to the North side mountains and the white desert outside the protected area, as well as Jabal Rum, the second highest mountain in Jordan, inside the protected area. You can see very far overlooking huge areas of the desert. Enjoy the different colours and shades of sand, rocks, and mountains.

Reviews

Wild Wadi Rum Tours, Wadi Rum Reserve, School Street، Wadi Rum Village, Jordan
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Adam Dendek

Our experience was absolutely fantastic from start to finish! Salaman was extremely responsive and helpful with all of our inquiries leading up to the trip. We booked a one-day hiking tour with an overnight stay, specifically selecting the Burdah Rock Bridge excursion. I won't go into detail about the tour since you can easily find all the information on their website. During the trip, we enjoyed a delicious lunch and saw all the must-see locations. One of the highlights was scrambling into the Burdah Rock Bridge, which was quite challenging. Despite struggling at first, our guide helped me navigate and when it became too difficult, he recommended that I return. Instead, I took the opportunity to enjoy a solitary walk in the desert and reflect on my life while leaving my mundane problems behind. The trip concluded with a sunset viewing and a bedouin-style dinner where the meat was cooked under the sand. It was incredibly tasty! We spent the night in tents and had access to hot water and breakfast in the morning. Overall, the location, people, and experience were all superb.

We had a fantastic tour and stay with Wild Wadi Rum; the activities were great, allowing us to see so much and also do some amazing hikes we would have been unable to access otherwise. We got away from the touristy side and felt so connected to nature. Salman, Ahmed and his family are wonderful hosts who offer genuine hospitality. The camp is comfortable and secluded, and the atmosphere there is really warm with the family making music, great food and good views. I live in Jordan so will be coming back to Wild Wadi Rum again and recommending it to all my guests.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Stan V

I booked a jeep safari + hiking tour with Wild Wadi Rum Tours and it was absolutely amazing! Wadi Rum is breathtakingly beautiful and they guided me to the best sites as well as through the hike (with expert advice). They even considered nice details such as: "we'll go here later in the day because the lighting will then be better for photos". My guide spoke English well, was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Can definitely recommend them!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Ashley

We had a wonderful afternoon/sunset tour of Wadi Rum. They were very responsive and easy to communicate with from initial contact. We were able to have a jeep tour that fit our schedule. They took us to all the highlights and gave us time to explore. At the end of the trip, we admired the wonderful sunset in the desert with tea. It appeared all the jeep tours go to the same key sites. After extensive research, Wild Wadi Rum offers a great experience with a great price. We highly recommend Wild Wadi Rum.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ By Joaquín Paniello

We spent one day and night in Wadi Rum starting with a welcoming lunch. It was a great experience. We felt realy at home. The camp with dobble rooms (tents like rooms) was great. And the silence and stars in the night unique. We truly felt at home.
