Saudi: Residents gear up for thrilling excursions as temperatures drop

As the weather lets up in many parts of Saudi Arabia, preparation for winter tourism is underway.

Tour groups map out hiking trips on weekends, quick get-a-ways outside city limits, and organize cross-country trips. While some opt for excursions, many prefer booking through websites that provide elaborate camping trips that will highlight the beauty of life in the Kingdom’s deserts.

Though the Kingdom’s western regions — Jeddah, Yanbu, and Umluj — may not be as cool as other cities to the north and south, the cooler evenings are still appealing to many residents and visitors.

Some of the top destinations are Wadi Disah in Tabuk, AlUla, Riyadh’s Edge of the World, the Nafud deserts near the Eastern Province, Al-Ahsa Oasis and Al-Qura Mountain for hikers. The Kingdom’s southern mountains offer many options for hiking and camping in forests too.
