For those who look for simple hiking in Wadi Rum, without
going up into the mountains, the possibilities are endless! The valleys are
all beautiful, and it is easy to avoid the main tourist trails.
There are a great many routes that we use regularly,
according to the time available, to the weather and to other factors - like
most people, each guide has his favourites!
call a pause lunchtime, usually of at least two hours, to allow a reasonable
time for digesting and to avoid the hottest time of day. It is a good idea
to bring something along to do during this time if you don't want to take a
nap - a book, a pack of cards, a journal to write up or a guide book to
check on your future plans. If you really don't want to rest, you can
always explore the immediate neighbourhood and take photos at your leisure,
without the guide.
generally reckon to hike about five to six hours in a day, before returning
to the camp for the night. For most people this would be 12 to 18kms. If we
should not reach the end of the prescribed route for whatever reason, the
jeep will come to pick us up.
We can combine several different routes to give a good
hiking holiday here, if you want to stay for more than just one day.

are straightforward, and hiking boots are not necessary. You can wear
trainers, boat shoes or trekking sandals as you like. You will probably
appreciate cotton socks.

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 or fruit for a snack.
