This is one of the great balloon flights anywhere in the world, taking you up some 3000 feet (approx 1000m) above the red sand dunes and rock mountains of Wadi Rum. Flights usually begin early in the morning and last for around an hour, but you should allow 2-3 hours for the whole experience. At 5.45am your guides will meet you at the visitors center and take you out to the starting point. The ground crew will pick you up at the end of your flight and bring you back to the visitors center again. The balloon needs a minimum of 5 people to guarantee the flight. In case of bad weather the flight will be cancelled and a full refund will be given.
This is a stand-alone balloon flight program. If you'd like to spend more time exploring Wadi Rum on the ground just let us know - we'll be happy to help build a more extensive itinerary that includes this balloon journey.
