Outdoor Activities in Dubai -Arabian Adventures

Dubai is a country with many fun and entertaining things to do. Here is a list of exciting outdoor activities one can enjoy during a visit to Dubai.


Desert Safari

There's nothing more exciting that an expedition to the Middle Eastern deserts. This is one of the best things to do in Deira, Dubai. Out of the many adventures to experience in the Arabian deserts, a desert safari tops the list. You will venture out into the sandy seas in a 4x4 safari jeep. Camel back rides are a great way to start your safari and then take a stroll through a camel farm. You can camp in Bedouin style tents and enjoy a raving Arabian barbecue dinner under the stars. A short drive from AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel will give you a chance to explore the sunny deserts of Dubai.


Explore the city by air and land

Fly through the Arabian skies and enjoy breathtaking aerial views of Dubai. These are usually 15-minute helicopter rides where you can compliment the ultramodern skyscrapers of the country. On land, you can take a coach with a guide to tour famous attractions of the city. The Jumeirah Mosque, Dubai Museum, Palm Jumeirah and Burj Khalifa are some of the prominent landmarks.



Quad biking is an adrenalin pumping adventure ride. There's nowhere better than the sunny deserts of Arabia to enjoy this exciting outdoor sport. You can pick a sand buggy or a quad bike according to your preference. This riveting ride comes with a helmet and goggles because safety is always first!



If you've tried snow-boarding then this is almost the same, the only difference is you slide dunes on sand instead of snow slants. Sand boards have straps that hold your feet onto the board while you slide up and down the sand dunes. The best time for sand-boarding is early morning when the temperatures are more tolerable. You can rent sand-boards from the city or check with your tour operator if they arrange it. Always ensure you take sufficient fluids and keep your body hydrated.


Camp out in the desert

Overnight desert camping is the best way to experience Emirati way of life. You can start your journey with a desert safari and then make way to the spacious camp tents to refresh. You'll be greeted with plenty of Middle Eastern snack, sweetened tea and freshly picked dates at the camp. The entertainment in the desert begins when the sun goes down. Smoking Shisha, belly dance performances, henna painting is all part of the desert camping experience. You even get a chance to meet the native Bedouin tribe members. You can visit the Bedouin camps and take a glimpse into their way of living.
