The vast Arabian Desert has been the source of inspiration of many mystifying myths for centuries and an intriguing destination for travelers. The Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre provides a VIP experience that explores the wonders of the desert with a full-day adventure. A Cadillac Escalade will transport you to the ancient city of Ad’Diriyah, in which resides a UNESCO World Heritage site and was once the seat of the Saudi royal family. Marvel at the 15th-century architecture and peruse the colorful markets of Al Bujairi before heading to the main event. Roughly 60 miles northwest of Riyadh lies Jebel Fihrayn — more commonly known as the ‘Edge of the World.’ An expert guide will show you unparalleled scenic views and expound on the geological formation. Meanwhile, a Four Seasons culinary team will prepare a gourmet luncheon composed of traditional Saudi cuisine and presented atop the breathtaking cliffs. Spend the rest of the afternoon photographing the canyons below, resting in the shade of your own Bedouin tent, or flying high above it all in a microlight aircraft. As the sun begins to set, you’ll descend into a valley dotted with acacia trees and watch the landscape change colour before your eyes. This day trip costs $2,270 per group and must be booked at least 4 days in advance.
