    Planning Tips

    If you’re coming to Winter at Tantora, we’ve compiled a wealth of information to make travel-planning easy and your stay as pleasant as possible.

    Getting Here

    AlUla is easily accessible by road and air from a variety of locations. By car, the trip is 3 hours from Medina, and 4 hours from Tabuk and Hail. Commercial flights are just 1.5 hours from Riyadh and Jeddah.

    Local Weather

    Winter is the perfect time of year to visit AlUla, with temperatures ranging from 15-25°C with very little rainfall. While the days are warm, there are cooler temperatures in the evenings and breezes on higher ground, so be sure to pack for colder weather to be comfortable.

    What to Pack

    Local customs call for both men and women to dress modestly (with knees and elbows covered). Flat comfortable shoes are recommended when visiting various sites and experiences, since walking over varied terrain is often involved. For electronics, AlUla uses the same plugs as in the United Kingdom.

    Getting a Visa

    Those who purchase a festival ticket and require a visa will receive one at small additional cost. You will be guided through the visa process upon booking — and you are able to apply yourself or an agent can handle all of the details for you. Visas are issued electronically within 24 hours and are valid for 30 days.
