Meet your driver-guide at your Abu Dhabi hotel and settle inside a comfortable, climate-controlled vehicle bound for the desert.

Gaze at the sands along the way and arrive at a Bedouin-style camp with a range of desert pursuits on offer. Then, set out on a 4x4 dune bash with a trained driver at the wheel. Enjoy the adrenaline rush as you career up the slopes before sliding back down—it’s a serious thrill.

Back at camp, refuel with sodas and chilled water, and experience two other activities. Ride a camel over the sands and try one of the desert’s most popular sports—sandboarding. Pick up a sandboard, get instructions, and then take on the dunes: surfing the slopes as if on a snow board.

Your experience then ends with a hotel drop-off.

Please note: the order of activities described above may change on the day of your tour.

I simply used the Trip Advisor booking. I was worried because I know that some outfits take your money and never show up. But this group was exactly on time, and gave us a great tour.
