Trails of Jordan - Wadi Rum and Petra
Small Group Holiday
Described by T.E. Lawrence as "vast, echoing and God-like...", it is at Wadi Rum that red sandstone rocks reach up from the desert floor to the high desert sky. The area is at its most dramatic early and late in the day, when the soft light and blue sky create a coppery effect on the sand. Here you hike through canyons and wadis, camping like the local Bedouin among the rock formations. Imagining ancient caravans of spice traders travelling far and wide to sell their wares, you walk into Petra, the Rose Red City hewn from the rock. Here you discover tombs, temples and treasuries, and as you climb up to find magnificent views and vistas, you begin to understand why Lawrence loved this land.
