Dubai Desert

By Viator, June 2016

4.5 679 Reviews | Add your review

The city of Dubai sits within the Arabian Desert along the coast of the Persian Golf. The desert area surrounding Dubai, often called the Dubai Desert, is characterized by endless vistas of rolling sand dunes -- quite different from the gravelly desert further south.

For many travelers, the Dubai Desert offers an escape from the manmade extravagance of the city and a way to enjoy nature at her most extreme. Four by fours and all-terrain vehicles carry passengers out into the dunes for sand boarding, camel treks, picnics, balloon rides or starlit barbecues without any other signs of human habitation in sight.

If you’re planning a visit to the Dubai Desert, try to avoid the period between June and September, when average daily highs top 100 degrees Fahrenheit (39 degrees Celsius). December, January and February are the coolest months, with daily averages in the high 60s.
