Harrat Viewpoint

The Lookout Point

AlUla is blessed with numerous lookout points that offer an elevated view of the epic landscape. Scale the black lava stone terrain of Harrat Uwayrid, and you’ll be rewarded with views over Dadan, AlUla Old Town, AlUla Fort and the AlUla Oasis. Stand at what feels like the edge of the world, meditate, and reconnect with nature. Arrive before sundown to soak up the sights and sounds of the golden hour, when the sky’s orange glow adds a magical touch to everything you see. Stay for sunset and watch the sky slowly fill with thousands of dancing stars.

Telescopes allow you to see further, finding constellations and stories among the stars. When hunger hits, OKTO is waiting. Enjoy deliciously authentic Greek food, perfect for sharing plates and conversation.
