Find yourself on cloud nine as you enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of historic sites that have captivated travellers for millennia, including Saudi Arabia’s first Unesco World Heritage Site, Hegra, alongside AlUla’s spellbinding tapestry of canyons, rock formations, and verdant oases from up to 4,000 feet in the air.

Wave goodbye as you go up, up and away for an airborne adventure you’ll still be talking about for years to come. A tranquil and scenic experience like no other, the only sounds you’ll hear are those of nature and the occasional blast of the burners as you float almost silently and imperceptibly over the land below.
