Edge of the World, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia

By Elite Traveler

Elite Traveler Top 50 AdventuresThe vast Arabian Desert has been the source of inspiration for mysterious tales for centuries and an intriguing destination for any traveler. The Four Seasons Hotel Riyadh at Kingdom Centre provides VIP access to the wonders of the desert with a full-day adventure. A Cadillac Escalade takes you to the ancient city of Ad’Diriyah, home to a Unesco World Heritage site and once the seat of the Saudi royal family. Marvel at the 15th-century architecture and browse the colorful markets of Al Bujairi before 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 the little-known scenic vistas and explain the geological formations, while chef Ahmed Fawzy will prepare a gourmet lunch of traditional Saudi cuisine just for you. Then, take to the skies in a microlight aircraft to see the immense sandstone cliffs and canyons beneath, before descending into a valley lined with acacia trees as the sun sinks beneath the horizon.

Presidential Suite from $6,150 per night, day trip from $2,270 per group. Contact Tony Coveney, general manager, +966 211 5888, fourseasons.com
