Book Experience

The Rock Art Trail in Hegra is a fascinating journey through time as depicted on hundreds of petroglyphs which can be view from 12 points of interest. The rock art and inscriptions along the scenic route traverse several civilisations, contain many different figures, scenes and languages and deal with topics ranging from trade to travel and worship to robbery.
Interpretative signage and a touch and feel table will help bring the stories to life. The 1500m track takes walkers on an elevated loop providing stunning views of Hegra. Visitors can choose daytime or evening for their rock art tour, the atmospheric evening tour includes torches for visitors to search for hidden details in the inscriptions.
 

Tour Details

The AlUla Rock Art Trail is a journey of walking and storytelling, a 1.6-kilometre trail past inscriptions and engravings  set into the stunning mountain landscape. These clues to AlUla’s past reflect a variety of languages and topics, deciphered by a Rawi, your guide on this journey. 

To follow the AlUla Rock Art Trail, begin at Winter Park. Board the air-conditioned coach (be sure to arrive 40 minutes prior to your tour start time to allow for transportation). Your coach will convey you to Hegra Heritage Site.

Upon arriving at Hegra, your bus will stop briefly at the Hegra Welcome Centre, where you will be greeted by a Rawi. After a short briefing, the coach will transport you to the trailhead.

The experience isn’t complete when the trail ends. On your return trip, you will stop at a lookout point for unforgettable views. Take a moment to enjoy the scene and snap a selfie with the magnificent view of Hegra in the background.

Following this brief stop, your coach will return to Winter Park via the Hegra Welcome Centre, creating the perfect opportunity for you to explore more of Hegra Heritage Site.
