AlUla Helicopter Tour
Buckle up and put your headsets on; it's time for take-off!
Operated by The Helicopter Company
Get ready to view AlUla from above, with this 30-minute helicopter tour with your pilot (guide), an exhilarating flight that takes you over AlUla's seven most famous landmarks and heritage sites.
The first of these will be the monumental Jabal AlFil (Elephant Rock), AlUla's most famous natural geological rock formation. Next, we head over to Hegra, a UNESCO World Heritage site and the southern capital of the Nabatean Civilisation, with its ancient tombs carved deep into the red and golden rocks. There you will get to see one of the last trains of The Hijaz Railway stood in time.
Our pilot will now turn towards the west, and in the distance, you will see Maraya, the Guinness World Record holder for the world's largest mirrored building reflecting the sun out to the sky, shining brightly like a diamond in the desert.
As our pilot turns south and takes you over the AlUla's three other most important heritage sites of Jabal Ikmah (the open-air library), back down over Dadan (the capital of the Dadan and Lihyan kingdoms) and lastly over the AlUla Old Town (the 12th-century medieval city).
