Highlights & Description

After pickup from your hotel in a 4-wheel drive vehicle, head off with your local guide to the desert, just 45 minutes from Dubai. Upon reaching the Lahbab Desert, be welcomed into an air-conditioned tent with refreshments and time to relax.
If you are feeling more adventurous, you can try some optional quad biking and take a ride over the beautiful red dunes of the Dubai desert.
Next, you will hit the desert for a dune bashing experience in a 4-wheel drive vehicle. Feel your stomach leap as you ride up and down the tall red dunes. Marvel at how the vehicle tackles impossibly steep inclines and the uneven terrain of the sand. 

After dune bashing, you will have a chance to try sandboarding or simply admire the scenery around you. Make sure you take plenty of photos of the scenic desert landscape. 
Next, stop at the red dunes desert and enjoy a camel ride in the open desert. Then, relax in air-conditioned comfort as you enjoy soft drinks, water, chilled Juice options and Arabic tea or coffee with dates before getting dropped back at your hotel in Dubai.
