What You Can Expect

Dubai 4x4 Sandboarding Safari

Enjoy the thrill of sandboarding down Dubai's dunes on this 4x4 safari

Start your sandboarding experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Settle into your air-conditioned 4x4, and gaze at the views as you leave the city for the desert.

Watch the landscapes gradually turn hilly, and drive to some of the most beautiful dunes in the Dubai desert.

Admire the orange slopes and hop out of your 4x4. After a safety briefing, grab a supplied sandboard and get instructions on how to position your feet and steer.

Climb a dune, strap the sandboard to your feet, and slide down the sands. Although the sport is similar to snowboarding, it’s easier to learn, so most people master things very quickly.

Slip and skid down the sands, and when you feel confident, stage a race with your fellow sandboarders.

Afterward, return to your Dubai hotel in your 4x4 where your experience finishes.

we loved the tour and it was great if you wanted to get out into the desert for just sandboarding and none of the other stuff such as camel riding. Driver was friendly and helpful. we had a brilliant time it's just the getting back up the sand dunes which is hard work.

Our tour guide was fantastic. Very animated and discussed the city Dubai on our way to the dunes. When on the dunes his skills on the 4x4 was exciting and exhilarating. Then with the sand boarding he found us a very clean area and we went down it as many times as we wanted. Don't worry about falling cause its soft sand. Of course going back up for another run was the hard part. We had a great time and would recommend it highly!

It was so much fun!! And the guide/driver was extremely nice and gave great personal service. I highly recommend. Be prepared though, climbing the sandy hill back up was very hard work. :)
