Khaybar Heritage Tour
The oasis of Khaybar is one of the oldest areas of human settlement in the Arabian Peninsula. Shrouded in mystery for millennia, Khaybar is now unlocking the secrets of prehistoric Saudi Arabia. A landscape shaped by millions of years of volcanic eruptions with a lush oasis at its centre, its historical legacy has undoubtedly played a pivotal role in shaping the world around us.

Explore the ancient oasis of Khaybar; tour the AlRawan Viewpoint and the interactive Welcome Centre, enjoy a self-guided walk or bike ride along the oasis trail surrounding AlNizar Fort, and discover the biodiverse Ain AlJammah & Hasat AlDabal. Immersive experiences within Khaybar help bring old stories back to life, with opportunities for dining and leisure also available during this day tour.
