Full description

Explore the magnificent Lahbab Desert on a thrilling guided tour that includes quad biking, sandboarding, a short camel ride, BBQ feast, shisha smoking, Khaliji dance show, and so much more.

Swap the skyscrapers of Dubai for the red sands of the desert when an air-conditioned vehicle picks you up. After listening to your guide's safety briefing, pop on a helmet and spend an hour racing through the dunes on a quad bike.

Feel the adrenaline rush as you kick up red sand left, right, and center. Pull up at the peak of a high dune and take a moment to soak in 360-degree views across the beautiful Lahbab Desert.

Now it's time to try sandboarding. Strap a special board to your feet and leap down the dunes, gliding to the bottom. Don't be afraid to fall off – it's like landing in a sea of silk.

Ride your quad bike back to the starting point before the drive to the ravishing Al Khayma desert camp. Enjoy traditional Arabian coffee, sweets, and dates as a special welcome before setting off on a short camel ride.

At the camp, get to know Bedouin culture with traditional activities including posing with a falcon, henna tattoos and shisha smoking. Savor a delicious BBQ feast of local dishes while watching a twirling Tanoura show and Khaliji dance performance.

When the final show ends, so does your red desert adventure. Board the vehicle and enjoy a relaxing return to your hotel Dubai.
