THESE PROGRAMMES ARE HARD GOING AND
ARE NOT SUITABLE FOR NOVICES IN ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. YOU SHOULD KNOW HOW TO ABSEIL AND TO
problem with hiking in Wadi Rum is that some people find
that just walking in sandy
valleys, however beautiful, becomes boring after a fairly short time.
We therefore concentrate on
short hikes of 3 or 4 hours, often less, through the narrower valleys and
canyons and we intersperse these hikes with jeep
rides when the walking becomes monotonous. This is very popular, since
tourists can get a maximum of sightseeing in a jeep
as well as covering more ground and having a more attractive walk.
You can also combine a day's hiking with a day's jeep tour
and/or a day on a camel. See the jeep/hike
programme and the jeep/hike/camel.
For dedicated walkers we
also offer a full day's hiking, with no jeep at all.
You might like to look at the page "One day (or
more) hiking". Any programme can be joined to another one.
We can also provide a more varied week in Wadi Rum by combining the hiking
trips with the simpler scrambling. Many groups coming from tourist agencies
much appreciate our week long trekking tours in Wadi Rum.
Footwear : these trails are straightforward,
and hiking boots are not necessary. You can wear trainers, boat shoes or
trekking sandals as you like. You might appreciate having cotton socks
: You are likely
to be in the sun for much of the time and should have a head covering of
some sort - this is the time to learn how to tie a Bedouin kefiya!
You will also need a rucksack or shoulder bag for water, and such oddments
as your camera, sunscreen, a light sweater according to season and perhaps
some biscuits for a snack.
