Subject: Questions concerning adventure in kSA
You seem to be the only person on the Internet who knows anything about adventure in KSA. I am living in Riyadh working for 4 months and would like to get out and see the country, other than staying in Riyadh.So many people whine about the misery of working here, and I relish the opportunity to see as much as possible. It seems very difficult to find any companies or people who could help me get to some of these places like Madain Saleh. I read some of your articles and it seemed quite an adventure for you as well. Have things changed much and would it be possible for me to make it to these sites. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot for your message. I'm happy to say that there ARE lots ofpeople who enjoy adventurous trips all over Saudi Arabia. Let's start with the Natural History Society: they have regular outings and also set up trips to farther-away places like Madain Saleh. I suggest you contact: Ray Tyson,

There is also a Hash House Harriers group in Riyadh which goes onruns/walks every week.
All the best!
