Summary

Hegra, Ha'il, Al-'Ula & other unspoilt sites

Associated more with oil than history, Saudi Arabia is opening up to the world. This tour explores its incredible history from the ancient petroglyphs at Al-‘Ula to the Nabatean Rock cut tombs at Hegra and the historic Roshan in Jeddah. Alongside its history, we will be exploring Saudi’s spectacular desert environments.

Tour highlights:

  • Gaze in awe at the UNESCO-listed Nabatean rock-cut tombs at Hegra, reminiscent of Petra
  • Discover the extraordinary UNESCO rock art at Jubbah dating back as early as the 10th millennium
  • Explore Al-‘Ula Old Town inhabited from the 13th century AD and later abandoned
  • Visit Rub’ al-Khali desert, also known as the Empty Quarter, the world’s largest area of continuous sand
