Overview
Take an adventurous journey into the heart of the Qatar desert on this 4-hour tour. Gliding across the sand in a luxury 4x4 vehicle, you will stop for a breathtaking view of the Inland Sea before continuing to Khor Al Adeid, one of only three places in the world where the desert meets the sea. This is a private tour for a maximum of four people.
Highlights
  • Discover Qatar’s desert and Inland Sea on a private half-day trip from Doha
  • Avoid tour groups and enjoy the desert and dune-bashing with just a guide
  • View the Khor Al Adaid inland sea and see where desert meets beaches
  • Choice of times and start points: ideal for time-short and layover guests
What to Expect
Book your preferred departure, choosing pickup in Doha from your hotel, the port, or the airport, or from Hamad Port. Your driver-guide will take you south along Qatar’s coast in a private climate-controlled 4x4. Pass oil fields and towns, then head off-road into the deserts that frame Qatar’s border with Saudi Arabia. Enjoy an optional camel ride (own expense) and set off on an exciting dune bash. Carve up huge dunes and slide down the sheer drops sideways as your driver deftly spins the wheel. Continue across desert to the Khor Al Adaid Inland Sea, a vast expanse of turquoise water that forms a natural border with Saudi. Admire this stunning UNESCO-listed body of water before traveling to one of just 3 places in the world where the desert runs into beaches. Enjoy soda at a desert camp here before returning to your starting point.
