Desert Adventures

Part of what’s special about the Arabian Peninsula — and specifically Saudi — is its desert. In fact, Saudi Arabia is home to the largest sand desert on earth. From adrenaline-packed excursions like dune bashing and sandboarding to more serene, history-inspired activities such as camel riding and Arabian camping, the desert in Saudi serves as a canvas for more than just adventure travelers.

Hiking Adventures

Saudi Arabia’s diverse topography is a delight to hiking enthusiasts. With striking lookout points atop cliffs and an oasis in the desert, there are plenty of adventures to embark upon on foot.

Water Adventures

The Arabian Peninsula is surrounded by water — the Red Sea, the Arabian Gulf and the Arabian Sea — making an adventure on or in the water an ideal way to explore the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
