Night in the desert - 2 Days

Overview

We have designed for you an adventurous private tour to the Empty Quarter with an overnight in tents surrounded by high sand dunes. Enjoy stargazing in the Empty Quarter far from any settlement. Explore the vastness of the desert areas with different shapes of dunes. Experience the adrenalin ride on the dunes with our expert drivers who will get the best performance out of the terrain cars. You will also have fun climbing the dunes dipping your feet in the moving sands. Enjoy the breathtaking views on the sea of sand from the dunes´ peaks while the sun slowly moves to the horizon. Before the sunset, you can take the best pictures of the desert landscape with the sun setting over the dunes. On the way to the desert, you will visit Wadi Dawka, a valley where thousands of precious Frankincense trees grow and give the valued harvest of frankincense drops. From there you will continue on the Frankincense route to the lost city of Ubar whose ruins stand witness to the glorious past when the city served as a center for the incense trade.
