Full description

Explore the magnificent Lahbab Desert on a thrilling guided tour, including quad biking, sandboarding, a camel ride, shisha smoking, a Khaliji dance show, and more. Start the tour with a pickup by your guide in an air-conditioned vehicle and set off on your desert adventure, discovering 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.

Very well organised. We were a large group with seperate bookings but everything went totally smoothly. The experience itself was amazing. The quadbikes were powerful and we had just enough freedom to test the dunes. The food was incredible. And the camel rides, falconry and shows etc topped off what was a super fun day. 10/10 would recommend. The guides are also super good instagram photographers. ;)

One of the best activities you can do in Dubai, make sure to check the weather before you book, since it was raining when we were at the camp, but it's pretty rare that it rains so you will be fine, the crew was very professional and adjusted to every situation, I met a lot of cool people there!

We got to do sand boarding and quad bike ride which was super fun, then moved to a different location where we got to ride a camel, watch dance&fire performance, eat delicious bbq, and get henna tattoo which was all included in the package. Our guide Moosa was beyond amazing and he made sure we had a great experience. My friends and I had a great time and I would recommend this to anybody who’s looking for a good desert tour.
