The natural wonders of AlUla are providing the backdrop for a range of rejuvenating and spiritual outdoor activities and experiences.
Located in the northwest of Saudi Arabia, the heritage site has been picked as the perfect spot to stage a series of wellness events throughout March.
The destination’s majestic atmosphere allows participants to relax while enjoying group activities amid the peaceful natural surroundings of AlUla.
One of the highlighted wellness activities this winter will see visitors take mountain walks and learn about the area, while experiencing the elements and then unwinding to musical performances in a spacious tent beside Camel Rock.
Games, drinks, and food will be available in the tent and people will be able to star gaze from the comfort of moon beds or gather around a bonfire with others.
A so-called sound bath will offer a full body listening experience using sound to induce therapeutic and restorative effects to the mind and body.
During the sessions, participants will be guided by a certified sound therapist using different healing instruments such as gongs, singing bowls, drums, tuning forks, and shruti boxes before relaxing in the sound of silence in AlUla.
Morning, afternoon, and evening classes will take place on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays with morning and evening sessions available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
At Shilal farm or AlUla Fresh Farm, visitors can enjoy meditative yoga in stress-free natural surroundings, and at Al-Wadi Park a tribal drumming experience will be offered against the stunning backdrop of AlUla.
A professional drummer will guide participants in working together to create rhythmic melodies as a way of encouraging unity and generating group energy. The evening experience will run from Tuesday to Saturday.
