Overview

Embark on a fascinating journey into the heart of Saudi Arabia's rich heritage and culture in this remarkable day trip to two of Saudi Arabia's historic towns, Shaqra and Ushaiger. Located about 200 kilometres northwest of Riyadh, these towns offer a glimpse into the traditional way of life in the Najd region that has shaped their regional customs. Your journey will begin with a tour of Al Qasab Village, a historic landmark, before you check out the Heritage Village in Shaqra and Hlewa Heritage Market. Stroll through the narrow streets and admire the mudbrick houses, mosques, and shops. Connect with friendly locals and learn about their lifestyle. Enjoy a traditional Saudi Arabian meal in Shaqra before setting out on a short drive to the next destination, Ushaiger. Begin your tour with a visit to the Al Salem Museum, which houses a vast collection of artefacts and exhibits that tell the story of Ushaiger's rich history. Next, explore the Ushaiger Heritage Village and be transported back in time and get an insight into the slow-paced Najdi society. Walk around the winding alleyways and look inside some of the empty houses before heading back to Riyadh.
