Why we chose this tour

Our Stargazing Experience in Wadi Rum from Aqaba is a chance to discover the cosmos in one of the best spots in the world to do it! The pitch-black night sky and panoramic celestial views of the Wadi Rum desert make this the ultimate experience for a star-gazer. Go to the "valley of the moon" for an unforgettable experience that includes a presentation on the stars and a look at the cosmos through powerful telescopes. Your astronomy-expert guide will teach you about the constellations, stars, and the many ways in which ancient civilizations learned to read the night sky throughout the ages. 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.
While the tour is offered year-round every day, 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.


A driver will transport you from Aqaba into the heart of the Wadi Rum desert, where your adventure into the cosmos begins with an informative 20-minute presentation that takes you into the Milky Way and beyond. Then, you’ll step out into the starry night sky and with the help of your guide and a green laser, you will take a tour of stars and constellations adorning the pitch-black desert sky. Your guide will let you in on the ancient secrets of our ancestors and the important role of the stars for generations long gone. The powerful telescopes will show you the stars as you have only seen in pictures, making for a truly unforgettable evening.
