  • Feel the force of Qatar's military architecture at the Zubara and Al-Raqiyat Forts
  • Take a leisurely stroll along the beautiful beaches of Al-Rowais at the very tip of the peninsula
Head to the northern shores of Qatar, where centuries of history are waiting to be discovered. Visit the Al Khor museum, the Zubara Fort, and the stunning beaches of Al-Rowais, and see what life in Arabia was like before the discovery of oil and gas.
What to Expect
Venture outside of Qatar’s expanding capital and head across the country to the northern tip of its peninsula, where many fascinating archeological, heritage, and natural sites are to be found. In this half-day tour, you will see its historic military architecture and gain insight into the lives of its coastal inhabitants.

Starting in Doha, you will travel in small groups by 4x4s to transport you to the northern coast of Qatar and the city of Al Khor. Your first stop will be at the Al Khor Museum, home to the archeological findings of the area, excavated from as far back as the Neolithic and Mid-Bronze age.

Following this, you will head further north to the ruined and deserted town of Zubara. Once a thriving pearl fishing and trading port, it has since become a center for research and development, and represents one of the largest and best-preserved examples of an 18th-19th century merchant town in the Gulf. Here you will visit the striking fortresses of Zubara and Al-Raqiyat. Before heading home you will stop at Al-Rowais, known for its stunning beaches, the town of Omslal Ali, and the wind tower of Omslal Mohammed.

Lunch will be at any preferred restaurant in the area at your own cost.
