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.

We really had a great time on our desert trip. The day was so eventful and we will always remember it. Our driver and guide Fahad was really nice and took us well from one location to another. We were always supplied with water and even when we were quad biking, several people from the staff kept an eye on all the riders. The evening at the camp and the BBQ rounded off the beautiful day perfectly.

We had an excellent trip. Tour guide arrived within the specified time and fully aircon vehicle with water. Salim was our tour guide and he couldn’t have been better. He was very accommodating and looked after us every well. Always making sure we knew what was happening next, providing us with water and took some great pictures of us along the way. The one hour quad bike was long enough with a stop half way for sunset pictures and sand boarding. I would 100% recommend this trip to others
