Must Experience Dubai Desert Adventures – Thrills and Adventures Amidst a Sea of Sand!

During your visit to Dubai, you will have the opportunity to enjoy several desert adventures such as taking a desert safari or hot air balloon ride, sandboarding, quad biking, cycling and more; thrill seekers and those looking for unique experiences will be enthralled by such captivating activities.


A desert safari

Naturally, your visit to Dubai wouldn’t be complete without undertaking an exciting desert safari. Undoubtedly, one of the popular and not-to-be-missed activities that you could experience during your desert safari is dune bashing; this activity consists of taking a ride in a powerful four-wheel-drive vehicle as an experienced driver takes you up, down and across sand dunes at speed. After your dune bashing session, you may pose for some sunset photographs and visit an enchanting traditional Bedouin camp to enjoy a typical Emirati feast. 



Should you be a seeker of adrenaline-pumping activities, going sandboarding in the desert would be an excellent choice. All that you would have to do is to head out into the desert expanses – perhaps on a desert safari – get on your sandboard (rather similar to a snowboard) and slide down the impressive sand dunes. Some operators will also provide you with suggestions and tips for making the most of your sandboarding experience. An accommodation choice in the city to consider where you could relax and unwind after such a desert escapade is Ascott Park Place Dubai where you could stay at conveniently located Sheikh Zayed Road apartments


Quad biking

Another marvellous adventure activity that you could enjoy during your visit to the desert is quad biking. You will have the opportunity to ride your own rugged quad bike (also known as an ATV or all-terrain vehicle) in the sands of the desert which is sure to be an exciting experience. Alternatively, you could also take a ride in a dune buggy whilst a family member or friend takes the controls. You may admire the stunning desert landscapes in between rides. 


Bicycle rides

If you enjoy cycling, you should undoubtedly take the opportunity to visit the Al Qudra Cycling Track during your visit to Dubai. As you might expect, this cycling experience would appeal to fitness enthusiasts and adventure lovers alike. At the Al Qudra Track, you will encounter 86 km of appealing cycling paths from which you can observe the magnificent desert scenery. You may even have the chance to spot interesting kinds of wildlife as you cycle along. 


Hot air balloon excursion

Not surprisingly, taking a ride in a hot air balloon would be a wondrous experience to enjoy during your visit to Dubai. On one of these entrancing balloon rides, you would soar above the rolling dunes of the desert whilst admiring the amazing sights passing beneath you. You will have the option of selecting a sunrise or a sunset balloon ride; either way, the vistas will be spellbinding and you have the opportunity to spot gazelles and Arabian oryx in their native habitat during your ride as well. 


Watch camel racing

An unusual and captivating experience that you could enjoy during your visit to the desert is gaining an insight into the sport of competitive camel racing. You may enjoy this absorbing experience at the Dubai Royal Camel Racing Club which you could reach by taking a 30-minute drive from Dubai city. If you arrive early, you will also have the chance to pet, friendly camels and also pose for photographs with them!
