Petra Desert Marathon

5 Sep 2020 / 4 Sep 2021

Petra by Night 2021

While Petra is impressive during the day, nothing can compare to the majestic facades lit up by candles.
4 Sep | 2 hours | 40 USD

Starting from the Petra Visitors Center after dark, we walk 2 km through the Siq to the Treasury on the path lit by candles. Nothing matches this special atmosphere where the candles throw flickering shadows on the rock walls and the Treasury stands mythical and awe-inspiring as we exit the Siq. A local musician will play the pipe and a storyteller will share a magical tale of Petra and the Nabateans.

This show normally only runs Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, but Petra Desert Marathon participants will get an exclusive chance to experience it as the Petra by Night organizers have agreed to open the gates on the evening of the Petra Desert Marathon.

The tour runs with a minimum of 150 participants.
