This tour is an easy but interesting ride in the Wadi Rum area. The protected nature reserve is situated in the South of Jordan and one of Jordan’s most visited attractions. In Wadi Rum you can find huge mountains of sandstone and granite emerge, sheer-sided, from wide sandy valleys to reach heights of 1700 meters and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains and many conceal ancient rock drawings etched by the people of the desert over millennia. Bedouin tribes still live among the mountains of Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape.

Our start will be at the Wadi Rum village where people from Wadi Rum live and usually meet visitors to pick them up and guide them into the desert. Our trip however, will not lead straight into the desert but rather go on road for most of time while we can enjoy watching the surrounding mountains. From the Wadi Rum Visitor Center we go off-road towards the small village of Disi. After that we will cycle on the moon planes near the camel racing track. At the end of our tour we will have the chance to sip on a traditional Bedouin tea at a local Bedouin camp. The tour also has the option to return to Wadi Rum village providing another 30 km of cycling.
