Wadi Rum Travel Guide
Meeting us and getting to and from Wadi Rum Village
On your way into Wadi Rum, you must stop at the visitor's center to purchase your entrance ticket into the protected area. If you already have the Jordan Pass, the entrance into the protected area will be free.
The meeting point for all tours and overnight stays (unless otherwise stated or arranged) will be at Wadi Rum Village, which is 6km after the visitor’s center. Please call us when you arrive at the visitor’s center so we will make sure to meet you promptly when you arrive in the village. When you enter the village you will see a large parking lot where you can park your car for free. We will meet you there.
Please be advised that we only accept cash and please be aware that there is no ATM in the village so you must have cash before you come here (the closest ATM is in Aqaba).
