Journey to the Edge of the World
Beyond glittering Riyadh, the Arabian Desert holds centuries of legends: Bedouin tales of flowing rivers and ancient cities buried beneath the sands. Now, thanks to an exclusive experience created by Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre, you can enjoy VIP access to the desert’s magnificent natural wonder, the Edge of the World.
During this full-day adventure, you’ll accompany an expert guide by Cadillac Escalade to the historic city of Ad’Diriyah, once the seat of the Saudi royal family and home to a UNESCO World Heritage site. After admiring the 15th-century adobe architecture and touring the colourful market centre of Al Bujairy, you’ll continue to the main attraction, the towering sandstone escarpment known as the Edge of the World. An authority on this dramatic landmark and the canyons and plains beyond, your guide will point out little-known scenic vistas and explain the geological formations. Meanwhile, a Four Seasons culinary team will prepare a gourmet lunch of traditional Saudi cuisine, customized for you by Chef Ahmed Fawzy 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.
