Desert buggy and quad biking

In the middle of the Rub al-Khali desert (50 km from Dubai) is the most majestic and highest sand dune in these parts - the Big Red Dune. Its height is about 100 meters. This is the perfect place to get active and enjoy the breathtaking scenery of the Arabian desert.

In addition to a surge of vivacity and quenching the thirst for speed, you can enjoy the majestic landscapes of the Arabian desert. ATV and buggy safari tour routes are designed in such a way that there are as many interesting and iconic places as possible on your way. You will be greeted by the Great Red Dune, Pink Rock, Valley of a Thousand Dunes, and the majestic oasis of lost trees. If you're lucky, you might be able to take a selfie with a free-roaming camel (they mostly meet in the morning). By the way, you don't even need a driver's license to ride a buggy.

This landscape may be seen from an absolutely new viewpoint by taking a buggy trip. With the option to equally split the driving and enjoy the ride, the journey may be completed either alone or in couples.

The best time for such a trip is just before sunset since it is pleasant both practically and aesthetically: the warmth of the day is already decreasing, and the air is at its most pleasant. Additionally, no one will be able to resist the sight of the sunset mirrored in the limitless dunes.

In Dubai, skydiving over the man-made islands of the Palm Jumeirah or the Rub al-Khali desert is a particularly popular type of sport-related entertainment. Undoubtedly, such a jump will be both an amazing adventure and breathtaking sight, and photo and video shooting are included in the price of the flight and will be kept as a keepsake.

Usually, instructors offer to make a long jump from a height of 4,000 meters above the Palm Islands. Get ready for a powerful adrenaline rush that you will experience, first falling for about a minute at a speed of 200 km/h, and then soaring under a parachute canopy.

Skydive Dubai is the most popular skydiving place. To sense the charm of free-flying, it is not required to be a professional, as an experienced instructor is always attached to tourists. His job is to make the flight memorable and to protect the jumper as well as possible.

Hot air balloon flight

Let yourself be immersed in a fairy tale while taking an unforgettable flight in a hot air balloon. Just imagine what beauty you can see while flying over the magnificent Arabian Peninsula. In a few seconds, you will find yourself in a bird's eye view and witness a truly breathtaking spectacle.

In order to save some money on this entertainment, you can assemble a team of like-minded people: from 6 to 20 people. The only downside to this adventure is the need to get up early as the flight starts no later than 4am. Firstly, it is necessary so as not to melt from the heat. And secondly, it is at this time that the nature of the UAE looks especially beautiful.
