Hop in a jeep and experience the extraordinary desert scenery of Wadi Rum, a rugged moonscape of huge sandstone mountains
Meet Bedouin locals, learn about their ways, and sleep under the stars in a desert camp in the far-out destination of Wadi Rum
There is quite a bit of walking involved in visiting Jordan's historic sites, especially in Petra and Wadi Rum, so a reasonable level of fitness is required. Most of the time there is no shade so remember to bring a hat, sun protection, and sturdy, comfortable walking shoes.
Winters can get quite cool, so if you're visiting at this time, don't forget to pack some warmer layers too.
The desert camp in Wadi Rum is basic but incredibly memorable. There are tents and shared western bathroom facilities. Please be aware that while the desert may be very hot during the day, it will still be cool at night and warm clothes and a sleeping bag is highly recommended when travelling outside of the summer months.

Jordan was my first Intrepid trip so I have no other trips to compare it with. I came away from Jordan with good memories and knowledge. I recommended Jordan to my Israeli friends when I returned there.

The Explore Jordan trip is amazing! It is well-planned and paced. The Dead Sea trip is perfect after several days of intense walking/hiking through Wadi Rum and Petra. The moment you walk through the Siq to see the Treasury in Petra is more magical than any Indiana Jones movie could illustrate! And "swimming" in the Dead Sea is an absolute must! I am still trying to explain the experience to my family and friends a week later! I was also pleased to discover that I LOVE falafel!
