One of the most magical parts of winter is stepping outside to inhale the season’s brisk air. In Saudi, winter is celebrated — a time to cool off, camp and, of course, hike. Average winter temperatures are in the teens, but visitors might be lucky enough to see snowfall in the mountains of the northern regions blanketing the slopes and desert sands. For snow enthusiasts, hiking in Saudi during winter is a different experience from hiking anywhere else in the world. Head north, near Tabuk, for the best chance to see the breathtaking stillness of shifting sands under a coat of fresh snow.
