Wadi Rum Trek

Trek the Wadi Rum in 2023

The Wadi Rum Trek will take you on a journey through surging dunes, chiselled canyons and all the dramatic hidden desert scenery the south of Jordan has to offer. This World Heritage site gives you a desert experience like no other, as you explore the home of several Bedouin tribes and take in their culture and cuisine along the way.

Every step you take through the ancient Wadi Rum desert engulfs you in its majesty and reminds trekkers of the endless beauty of Allah’s (SWT) creations. If you’re looking to experience Jordan’s wild beauty then put yourself to the test and sign up for the Wadi Rum Trek!

Every penny you raise for the Wadi Rum Trek goes right to our Emergency Response appeal, to help our brothers and sisters in times of crisis. When disaster strikes, Penny Appeal is there to help and by fundraising for Emergency Response, you can be too.

Adventure is on the horizon, will you join us for the 2023 Wadi Rum Trek?

Your Wadi Rum Adventure

When you join us for the Wadi Rum Trek, you’ll be embarking on a breath-taking trek along old shepherd paths with seasoned guides. We begin our journey, weaving our way west across desert wadis and over striped granite mountains during the day and camping beneath the spectacular desert skies at night, where you will truly see why Wadi Rum is called the Valley of the Moon.

  As we make our way through this idyllic desert scape, we will take on the challenge of reaching Um Dami’s summit, Jordan’s highest mountain at over 6,000 ft! At the end of the trek, we will also pay a visit to the ancient city of Petra and explore this Nabataean city in all its glory.

One of the unique aspects of the Wadi Rum Trek is that you have the chance to visit two community centres run by our partners in Jordan, the Collateral Repair Project, and visit with the refugees that your donations are helping. Our last day in Jordan will be spent distributing food vouchers and getting to know refugees and their families in Amman.

This is your chance to take on an unforgettable trek and see first-hand how your donations are helping vulnerable refugees in Jordan.
