Full description

Start the tour with a pickup by the travel guide in an air-conditioned vehicle. Set off together for the magnificent Lahbab Desert where you can taste the thrill of desert adventure and the beauty of Bedouin culture.

Upon arrival in the desert, enjoy a short break during which you can use the toilet before starting your quad bike adventure. Listen to your guide as they give you safety instructions on quad biking including how to wear the helmet.

Once geared up, hop on the quad bike, and kick-start your 1-hour bike ride. Feel the thrill and adrenaline rush as you race through the sand surmounting the red dunes. Follow the instructions of your leader to conquer the red dunes with this biking experience.

As you get to the peak of the dunes with the bike ride, take a break to relax and breathe in the beauty of the desert terrains. Later, try your hand at sandboarding.

Strap the board onto your shoes and slide down the dunes. Don't be scared to fall off your board, it is just like landing in a sea of silk. While enjoying the sport, click photos of your fun-filled adventure and the serene desert.

Next, ride back to the starting point and proceed to the ravishing Al Khayma desert camp. At the camp, be welcomed with the traditional Arabian coffee, sweets, and dates. Hereafter, meet your friendly camel and enjoy a ride in the desert, admiring the beauty of the dunes.

Return to the camp to take part in traditional activities like posing with the falcon, Henna tattoos and Shisha smoking. Finally, as the entertainers take the stage, enjoy a Tanoura show and belly dancing performance while savoring a delicious BBQ meal.

As the red dunes desert adventure comes to an end, be taken back to your hotel or preferred location in Dubai.

Would just like to start by thanking Hashim, our guide, for making the day amazing from start to finish and looked after us so well. The whole day was amazing, starting off with the quad bikes which were so fun and then into sand boarding. The camp was lovely as well, henna, Shisha and falcon photo were all free which is great and then we also got dinner included which was a buffet and they certainly didn’t skimp on the portions. Good food! Would definitely recommend this activity, will not disappoint.

Amazing day/evening as a solo traveler ! The group and guide were amazing. Our guide was entertaining and made sure everything happened with the needed safety procedures ! During the ride he gave us some information about the history of the desert. The food and entertainment was very good! The day went by too fast Highly recommended if you want this once in a lifetime opportunity. The accommodations at the camp were really good. They even had showers ! 10/10 I would do this again but this time with a Dune buggy instead of a quad just to experience something different Unfortunately some visitors like to leave their trash in the desert. So don’t be an A**hole and make sure you take your trash with you!
