Heritage Oasis Trail Tour
This 3km tour along AlUla’s Heritage Oasis Trail is a fabulous way to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of the Oasis while learning about its important role in AlUla’s history. The tour starts with typical AlUla hospitality – dates, dried fruits and coffee – and an introduction to the Oasis by your expert guide. You’ll then be led along the scenic trail, parts shaded under towering date palms, other sections opening to sunny clearings with stunningly verdant panoramas.

You’ll pass farmlands restored to their former splendour, growing the fruit and vegetables that end up in the kitchens of farm-to-table restaurants. There’ll be time to take photos at numerous picture-perfect locations en route. The tour ends at the palm swings, one of the most iconic sites on the trail, where you can gently sway in the breeze or swing high into the air. No visit to AlUla is truly complete without a visit to this wonderful Oasis.
