We leave Petra and head towards to Wadi Rum – a complete contrast from the busy streets of the Rose City to a vast expanse of this red sandy desert.
At Wadi Rum we will take a 2-hour jeep tour of the most beautiful desert in Jordan. Occupying 74000 acres, Wadi Rum has monolithic outcrops of granite rock and sandstone which rise out of the desert with a drifting blanket of sand between them. With Martian like rock formations, this truly magnificent place is like a different world.
Lunch at Wadi Rum
After lunch we will drive for an hour to the Wadi Araba border crossing where we enter Israel. Here we will spend the afternoon in Eilat.
Eilat is Israel’s southern most city and sits on the northern tip of the Red Sea. With a busy port and great beaches, you will have plenty to see here and have a great choice of places to eat and drink.
