Dubai Desert Adventure Half-Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Do something totally different with your stay in Dubai. Do some dune bashing, camel trekking, and sand boarding. Watch a falconry display, ride quad bikes, and more. A true desert adventure taster tour packed into 5-hours.
  • Morning desert activity tour from Dubai: leaves the rest of your day free
  • Sports-driven: longer-than-usual dune bash, sandboarding, and camel ride
  • Includes quad biking and falconry show, both treated as extras on some tours
  • Ideal for first-time visitors, sports enthusiasts, and those short on time
What to Expect
After early pickup from your Dubai hotel, venture into the desert in a climate-controlled 4WD vehicle for your morning of activities. Sodas and water are provided throughout to keep you refreshed. En route, listen as your driver-guide tells tales of the desert, its history, and its habitat. Then, hold tight as you head off road for a high-speed dune bash.  Next, continue to a camel farm for a camel ride across the sands. Then, grab a sandboard and have a go surfing the steep dunes. After carving down the slopes, watch a display of traditional Bedouin falconry, and pose for a photo with one of the beautiful birds. Your activities continue with an exciting quad bike ride. Hop onto an ATV and, after instructions, race over the desert, churning up clouds of sand as you go. Your desert experience finishes back at the departure point in Dubai.

Salim took us out into the desert and we had a great time. We were able to opt out of the dinner option as we had other plans. Don't bring water like we did. Everything is well organized and no need to take anything.
