are often based on the old Bedouin trails on the mountains. They are mostly
hill walking routes but you should be prepared
to use your hands occasionally to help
They take you
into parts of the area that most tourists never see : they are for the adventurous people who enjoy a challenge. They are more difficult than the
hiking routes, and you will need to be in good physical condition to get a
maximum of enjoyment from them.
We offer here one and two day tours, but they can easily be extended, either
by adding on all or part of another programme, or by taking a few other
routes not described here.
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
"interesting" than the hiking routes and hiking boots with cotton socks are
definitely recommended. Stout hiking sandals can also be worn; on some
routes trainers are a possibility. Consult your guide if in doubt.
Other equipment : 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 fruit or biscuits for a snack.
