Advice for travelers:
Make the most of your time in quarantine
If you have time for a full day of fun, book two tickets for two unique experiences available at the Hegra site: the Hegra Tour and the AlUla Rock Art Trail Tour. On the day of booking, you can take the visitor center as your starting point instead of heading back to the winter park between the two experiences
