Visit Arrakis in Wadi Rum

By Wadi Rum Escape


"God created Arrakis to train the faithful."


...Wadi Rum

Visit the otherwordly desert in Jordan which served as a film location for Denis Villeneuve's epic Dune  movie.  


Desert Planet...

Polish comes from the cities; wisdom from the desert.

Arrakeen villager saying

Why do prophets and visionaries go to the desert?

What is the meaning of the desert in the human psyche?

I'll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences... Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens. The sleeper must awaken.


— Duke Leto Atreides

Time for a change?

Just remember to walk without rhythm so you don't attract the worm.

Fear is the mind killer

The desert is a place to unplug, to challenge yourself, to explore, and to have an epic adventure.

"When strangers meet, great allowances should be made for differences in custom and training."

― Frank Herbert, Dune

There’s never a drop of rain on Arrakis

Jordan is one of the 10 most water poor countries on earth. (310 sunny days a year on average)  In a year there may be 9-14 days where there is rain in Wadi Rum.

“The mystery of life isn’t a problem to solve but a reality to experience.”


Frank Herbert,

99% of residents of the US and Europe experience too much sky-glow to observe the night sky as the ancients did. In Wadi Rum the skies are still dark.
