Although the golden sands and warm waters of the Gulf are an inevitable attraction, there are thousands of square kilometres of open desert that are ripe for exploration. All hotels offer trips into the desert which will generally include some ‘wadi bashing’, camel riding, visiting remote villages or archaeological sites, a BBQ dinner or even a night in a Bedouin-style camp. We can offer a wide range of trips so please contact us for further details.
If you would like to spend more time in the desert in considerable style and comfort, then Al Maha is a stunning camp situated approximately one hour’s drive from Dubai City, offering luxurious accommodation combined with a wide variety of desert activities including game viewing of the very rare wild Arabian oryx.
Another fascinating contrast to a stay on the coast is a visit into the Hajjar Mountains. Being slightly higher in altitude, the temperature can be refreshingly cool and there is plenty of walking, exploring and relaxing to be enjoyed here with a stay of one or two nights.
