(Duration: one day or one-day-and-one-night)
This is like the Magic of Wadi Rum Tour at speed! You will still have all the atmosphere but rather than watching and appreciating from a slight distance you'll be in the middle of the whole thing; walking, climbing, trekking, sweating and perhaps sand-boarding! For some people half an hour's stroll and climbing in and out of a 4x4 is more than enough exercise for a day; for others, it's not enough just to see the spectacular sites of Rum, they need to touch and experience them. Don't worry, even then no-one will be pushed hard, you stay in control of the pace and the priorities of your visit! But if you know that you want to get out and about, to enjoy the wind and sand and sun and at the end of the day feel you've put in lots of effort then please visit the five bridges!
Most tours only mention three Rock Bridges; Saleh has put together a spectacular itinerary that takes you on a 70 kilometre journey past the main sites of Rum to see all five. Four are relatively easy to get to and clamber on; but the fifth (Burdah Bridge) you need to view from a distance, while enjoying lunch in the desert. It can be reached if you are seriously energetic and determined but only by a long climb and you must be accompanied by an additional experienced local guide.
As this is a new tour we're not publishing the detailed route here but be assured it will be a journey you will not forget and if you've been to Rum before, Saleh will be taking you to places you've probably never visited. After sunset you can have dinner and spend the night in Saleh's mother's tent near Khazali.
Above and below are the five bridges, plus a tiny sixth one you won't have time to see.
