Experience something a little different on your holiday in Jordan with one of our Unique Adventures. See the spectacular Perseids Meteor Shower in the desert wonderland of Wadi Rum, trek through the lush Dana and Wadi Araba Nature Reserves to the Rose City of Petra.
The Perseids meteor shower is a spectacular celestial light show, that has mystified and amazed sky watchers for nearly 2000 years. At its peak, between the 8th and 14th August, the night sky is lit up by often over 60 meteors per hour, streaking across the darkness. As with all celestial events, the Perseids is best observed in a completely clear night sky and where better than Jordan’s Wadi Rum desert, which is renowned for its beautiful blanket of stars. You can witness the incredible Perseids Meteor shower from our desert camp in Wadi Rum, where you will spend two incredible nights star-gazing, when the meteor shower is at its peak.
