Our Stargazing Experience in Wadi Rum from Aqaba takes you on a journey into the mystical cosmos from one of the best spots in the world to do it, the Valley of the Moon – Wadi Rum. The pitch-black night sky and panoramic celestial views of the Wadi Rum desert make this the ultimate experience for a star-gazer. Your night will begin with a starlit presentation on what hovers above you by an astronomy expert guide, with the chance to look through a powerful telescope deep into the Milky Way. The grandeur of the galaxies and nebulae that fill our skies will be revealed to you, as you trek across the desert with bright constellations lighting your way. Throughout this journey, you’ll discover the many ways in which ancient civilizations learned to read the night sky throughout the ages and even the traditions that the indigenous nations of the Middle East used to interpret the night sky. After enjoying the evening under the stars, you’ll be driven back to Aqaba,
Wadi Rum is one of the world’s best stargazing locations, and there’s nothing more special than coming into contact with the sparkling night sky in this stunning desert atmosphere. The best months for stargazing in Wadi Rum are July, August, and September. The Perseid meteor shower starts in July and reaches its peak on August 12 of each year. If you’re in Jordan at that time of year, going stargazing in Wadi Rum is an absolute must-do experience, but every night is a magical night under the stars, and this tour is offered every day with guaranteed departures. Reserve your spot for a magical evening!
