What You Can Expect

Private Tour: 4x4 Taste of Arabian Desert Day Trip from Dubai

Explore the Arabian Desert on a day trip from Dubai

Leave your central Dubai hotel by comfortable, air-conditioned 4x4 with your informative guide at the wheel. Since this is a private tour, tell your guide if there’s anything you want to see more or less of — your itinerary can be customized around your interests.

Cruise through the neighboring emirate of Sharjah, and absorb the tranquility as you head deep into the desert, passing rolling golden dunes, wide open plains and quiet villages.

Admire the craggy, barren Hajar Mountains on the horizon, and after roughly 1.5 hours, pass lush orchards as you approach the pretty oasis settlement of Falaj Al Mualla. Look around this traditional hamlet with its palm groves on foot before continuing into the Hajar foothills to a beautiful, secluded wadi.

Stop at a palm-dotted oasis and savor a tasty packed lunch paired with a refreshing soda or mineral water as you admire the scenery. Check the Itinerary below for a sample menu.

Drive on to Camel Rock, a striking desert rock that resembles a camel rearing from the sands. Snap pictures and then look for the ancient marine fossils imprinted into some nearby rocks. Located the fascinating fossils with pointers from your guide, and learn how they were created millennia ago by miniscule ocean creatures when the area lay deep beneath the sea.

Finally, relax on your 4x4 journey back to Dubai where your day trip concludes at your hotel.
