Overview

Love sport? Try a spot of sandboarding in the desert dunes around Dubai on this private 4-hour 4x4 experience. Hop aboard your comfortable 4x4 with your private guide, and head deep into the desert interior to a region of beautiful, rolling dunes. Then, with one-to-one instructions from your guide, learn to surf down the slopes on a provided sandboard. Develop your skills and speed, and move up to higher slopes as you wish. Upgrade to enjoy a 30-minute or 1-hour quad biking ride as part of your sporty exploits.
  • 4-hour private sandboarding safari by 4x4 from Dubai
  • Head to some of the biggest and best sand dunes in the Dubai desert
  • Ride and slide down the slopes under the expert eye of your private guide
  • Escape from the city to try one of the most popular desert sports
  • Upgrade to enjoy a 30-minute or 60-minute quad biking session
  • Travel by comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4
  • Enjoy personalized attention from your guide on this private tour
Start your 4-hour sandboarding experience with a pickup from your central Dubai hotel. Meet your private guide, hop inside your comfortable 4x4 and set off on your journey into the UAE desert.

Enjoy the views of the passing desert landscapes, and watch as they gradually turn from wide-open plains to small and ever larger orange dunes.

As you travel, hear fun facts about sandboarding from your guide and learn how it’s one of the most popular desert sports in the UAE.
After a while, arrive in an area of gorgeous golden dunes and head for some slopes that are ideal for learning to sandboard.

Hop out of your vehicle and, after a safety briefing, get your supplied sandboard and instructions on how to balance on it and steer it from your guide. Then, with your guide watching and offering tips, try slipping and surfing down the slopes.

Gain in confidence as you practice and move up to some steeper, longer slopes as you wish — you’re in control of the pace and progress you want to make.

If you’ve upgraded to include a quad biking session, finish your sandboarding and hop onto your rugged desert vehicle. Listen to a safety briefing and driving instructions, and thrill as you zip over the sands.

Afterward, return to Dubai by 4x4, where your experience ends with a drop-off at your hotel.

Fun but make sure you bring sneakers...
Peggy S

Fun but make sure you bring sneakers because when surfing the sand is extremely hot!! My daughter was crying because it burned her feet! Quad riding was fun but we were confined to an area that was not very large so it became a little boring . Driver brought us to a store where we were able to try on scarves and outfits that were native and then purchase them. Great photo opportunity and we actually purchased the scarves .

No tutorial, sand dunes very high but was ok if you are a confident person. DO NOT go into any of the old shops they take you to when letting air out of tires, if you are a women DO NOT interact with ANY of the shop owners (have raised an incident with viator) even if you are with your husband!!!!!!

Stuart F

This was one of the worst tours I have ever done. To start with we were taken to a 'meting point' to meet no-one but it was just a shop where the owners were extremely intimidating and aggressive and we were told we had to buy things from them so as not to cause offence. We were then taken round the back of this shop and up 1 sand dune where we were asked to get out of the car and told we could go sand boarding. That was the Safari over. 1 sand dune!!! we had no experience on the sand boards and were just told to get on with it. We were then taken to an enclosed area, told to sign some forms stating we accepted if we went on quad bikes we were not insured and then allowed to drive quad bikes around an enclosed area smaller than a football pitch. This was not what we booked and i feel we were completely ripped off

The sandboarding was funny but also exhausting. The Tour was only about driving to a dune and after it driving back to the Station for driving back to the Hotel. It happens only 1 hour and we hadn't really a Safari include.

Dear Myrjam M, We are sorry to hear that you were not fully satisfied with our services and even more sorry to disappoint a customer. Your feedback makes us better. The sand boarding is definitely exhausting, we fully agree that it is a sporty activity. If you need a dune bashing as you write, we suggest our classical "Desert Wonder Safari" with BBQ. Our company values put customer satisfaction as top priority and we are committed to our customers. We look forward to serving you again. Best Regards, Sarah P. Dubke Manager Guest Services ORIENT TOURS LLC

OK all it is is pick up at hotel, drive for an hour, sandboard for an hour, and drive back. Driver did not say much during hour drive. While the sandboarding is fun keep in mind you have to climb back up the hill - very tiring - ultimately unlikely you will go down more than 3-4 times because of this. worth doing but only 3 hours and really it is just a drive to do sandboarding. I am still looking for the adventure safari!

Andrew P
, Dec 2013
Really fun activity, I was the only one doing it though, no other people in my group just me and the driver so it did take some element of fun out of it as the encouragement to stay longer was lacking .... It' worth giving it a try even if you dont think you will be any good. The only downside is you have to walk back up the sand dunes with your board... try doing that at midday in the baking heat over and over again. Certainly took some time to get my breathe back after each climb.

Picked up punctually from the hotel. 4 x 4 drive through the red dunes was great. However when we stopped to try sandboarding the driver offered almost no tuition both my teenage kids had a go and both crashed at some speed ending up with some significant bruising and my daughter hurt her neck. The dune selected by the driver for their first attempt was huge. For first timers gentle slopes should be offered initially but we got the impression that the driver wanted us back at the hotel asap hence offered an experience he knew we would not enjoy knowing we wouldn't have another go. The whole thing lasted less than 2.5 hours including a 45 min trip each way to the dunes.

15 Min desert tour right beneath the high way. Was OK but too short. The sandboarding part was ok but the mounting was extremely poor. You couldn't even steer with the board; just straight ahead. When we left desert we stopped by a touristy "ghost town" where an annoying guy tried to sell his merchandise.
