Saudi Arabia’s Al Wahba Crater is at the centre of one of the geographic wonders of Saudi Arabia, attracting visitors and academics from around the world. An experience not to be missed, Randa Saab Smith tells Saudi Voyager what to expect.

The spectacular formations and unique terrain of the volcanic areas of Saudi Arabia have been intriguing Saudi and expatriate adventurers, scientists and explorers for decades. Even so, the volcanoes themselves have only recently begun to pique the interest of volcanologists, having largely gone unnoticed until the past decade, but now drawing interest from around the world.
