Wadi Rum and Beyond!

December 2010


If you wish to take part in a truly memorable activity, don’t miss the opportunity to experience the mesmerizing desert of Wadi Rum in a unique manner!

Wadi Rum, in the south of Jordan, is a protected area covering 720 square kilometres of dramatic desert wilderness surrounded by huge mountains of sandstone and granite reaching heights of 1700 meters and more. Narrow canyons and fissures cut deep into the mountains and many conceal ancient rock drawings etched by the people of the desert over millennia. Bedouin tribes still live amongst the mountains of Wadi Rum and their large goat-hair tents are a special feature of the landscape.

Your adventure in this magical setting begins once on board with the Royal Aero Sports Club of Jordan (RASC). Fasten your seat belt and let yourself be flown by RASC’s experienced pilots to a timeless and starkly beautiful world. The sky is over Wadi Rum is vast and clear and the wilderness is uniquely shaped with massive mountains rising out of the pink desert sand.

In addition to the microlight and ultralight flights over Wadi Rum RASC offers hot air balloon flights where you can drift peacefully over Wadi Rum and enjoy a bird's eye view of its magical scenery, magnificent rock formations and breathtaking pink and orange sand dunes.

Wadi Rum is rich in history and culture, including the Nabetean Incense Route, the making of the movie Lawrence of Arabia and the modern Bedouin camps of today. Whether it be an indulgence for yourself or a surprise gift for a loved one, a hot air balloon ride is a unique experience.

If you decide to take a balloon flight, these typically take place during the early morning hours because it provides the best flying conditions with calm winds and cool air for gentle rides. It is also the best time to take pictures, with splendid colours and contrasts and the beauty of the sunrise.

The balloon flies up to 10,000 feet and the ride lasts around one hour, but you should allow 2 to 3 hours for the whole experience. Flying the lightweight ultralight Remos and the microlight, you will cruise at speeds of 80 to 90 km/h at altitudes of 3000-4000 feet – ideal for superb photos.

Our team will be delighted to plan your complete journey and ensure complete satisfaction and thrill for all travellers!
