3 Day Saudi Arabia & Madain Saleh Tour from Riyadh Itinerary
Day 1 - Madain Saleh
- The starting point of our 3 Day Madain Saleh Tour from Riyadh is Riyadh airport. We advise to book the 6:10 am flight from Riyadh to Prince Abul Majeed bin Abdulaziz Domestic airport, where you'll be picked up by a representative.
- After your travel, you’ll continue onto Madain Saleh, an impressive example of the skill of Nabatean craftsmen and a strategic stopping point along the fabled Frankincense route.
- This archaeological site is expansive and exquisite, with over 111 tombs decorated with intricate facade carvings, towering monuments, and gorgeous graves scattered across its floors.
- The next stop is Jibal al Rukkab, a set of canyons home to impressive rock formations and gaping sandstone chasms, as well as Jibal Ithlib, a sacred site with petroglyphs and Diwan cultic sites.
- The last stop of the day is the Lonely Castle, or Al-Farid Tomb, an enormous tomb carved out of a single boulder that stands alone in the desert sands.
- Overnight in a Bedouin Camp in Madain Saleh(Lunch and dinner included).
Day 2 - Al Ula and Dedan Village
- After breakfast in the camp, start with a look at one of Saudi Arabia’s most well-kept secrets: Jabal Al Qaraqir, a stunning canyon carpeted with waving grass on its floor, and then head to the volcanoes and lava fields of Harrat Al-’Uwayrid en route to Al Ula village.
- This strategic stopping point next to a vast amount of water is still standing, with the mud huts that formed a defensive wall for civilizations from the Lihyanites to the Romans creating serpentine paths through the old town.
- While this resting point for caravans through the ages is ancient, it’s still not as old as your next stop in Dedan.
- The oldest town that still survives in this area, and surrounded by verdant palm groves, this ancient home to the Dedan and Lihyan kingdoms was a crucial political and economic center for centuries.
- Overnight in Madain Saleh(Breakfast, lunch, and dinner included).
