From Aqaba, travel one hour in an air-conditioned motor coach to the Wadi Rum desert. More moonscape than desert, the weathered cliffs of black and crimson tower dramatically above pink sands. Providing the stunning, memorable backdrop in Lawrence of Arabia, the enigmatic lure of Wadi Rum embraces you in a thrilling grip.

Cool refreshments will be served at the popular Rum Rest House, your gathering spot for today's foray deep into this Valley of the Moon. A comfortable jeep with four-wheel-drive takes you across sand trails and dunes, a rugged ride which rewards with dramatic perspectives of unique desert scenery and wind-sculpted hills. Your driver will pause at Al Khazali and Lawrence Springs, then continue to Wadi Rum, where you will return to the ship via air-conditioned motor coach.
