Saudi Arabia is a collection of desert kingdoms, home to traditional values and awe-inspiring landscapes. The region of AlUla is a vast desert expanse of cultural heritage to discover, including Bronze Age evidences. With the lack of human intervention, it is a truly special place to explore. With Saudi Arabia relaxing particular rules and gradually opening their arms to the world, we can now journey through time and take in all that this land has to offer.
Awaken in the heart of the desert, amongst infinite sand dunes, where uninterrupted panoramas across a desert valley floor await. Beat the heat and embark on a delightful dawn 4 x 4 cruise towards the red hued ‘Dancing Mountains’ where you will explore the labyrinth of the Ragasat Mountain canyons by foot. This is a fantastic way to catch your first glimpse of the vast desert region of secluded solace, before swapping out the 4 x 4 for some high-octane dune buggy fun. Dart through a surreal maze of shaded canyons and propel into the arid expanse under the desert sun.
Following this, is a more relaxing immersion in the landscape. Travel the arid expanse on camel back, catching sight of the diverse array of animals, vistas of sculpted sandstone and the occasional azure desert lake. Or, take in the true scale of the vast planes from above, in your own private helicopter. Hike from Elephant Rock through the desert, visit the Arabian Leopard Initiative to learn and spread awareness about these endangered animals, or if it is history that attracts you, visit the Ikma rocks to unearth the stories carved by the ancient Arabian merchants of the desert, all before settling down for a specially prepared lunch in the desert, organised by Pelorus.
