Full description

Experience the beauty of the desert sand dunes and the thrill of sandboarding on this unique Land Cruiser tour from Dubai. Keep cool in an air conditioned vehicle and enjoy cold mineral water on your tour. 

Your morning safari begins with a pick-up at your hotel in a 4x4 Land Cruiser. Head off with your local guide into the desert, just a 30-45 minute ride from Dubai. Along the way, the driver will take you up and down the dunes in the morning sun. Marvel at the beauty of the desert at this time of day. The first activity gets the adrenalin flowing, bashing some high Red Desert dunes, driving up and down in a Land Cruiser. Afterwards there's an opportunity to try sandboarding, one of the most exciting sporting activities in the desert. After your sandboarding experience, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
