Abu Dhabi's scenic desert accommodates thrill-seeking adventure rides, sandy meanders, and romantic evenings. There really is something for everyone, so long as you can handle the heat!
Dunebashing is a popular activity at all times, but even the strong Arabic coffee won't invigorate you ahead of a long day sightseeing like an early morning adrenaline rush!
Dromedaries (that's the one-hump kind) have played a crucial role in Arabic culture throughout history. Choose the traditional option for a laid-back tour in the afternoon heat.
Celebrating a romantic occasion? Sounds like a great excuse to splash out on a private tour! Why not enjoy some authentic Bedouin cuisine as you watch the sunset over the dunes?
Just because the desert air is beginning to cool, doesn't mean you have to! Warm up with a delicious Arabic barbecue, smoke a shisha, and even watch an outdoor belly-dancing show!
Still can't decide on the best time of day to see the desert? Ride out to an overnight camp for an evening of starlit entertainment and a morning of strong coffee and breakfast!
Shared Abu Dhabi desert tours and safaris start at around €50 for a basic itinerary. Although food is typically provided, don't assume that it'll be authentically local. Customer reviews are worth checking for more info. Better menus and more varied itineraries can always be found for a higher price, but book online to take advantage of unique deals and discounts.
Even in winter, Abu Dhabi temperatures regularly reach highs of around 77°F. In summer they top 100°F, so don't venture into the desert without protecting yourself from the sun. Also, bring water even if bottles are included on your tour. Nighttimes are a little cooler but although the temperature might drop to 50°F in January, the summer nights can still hit the 86°F mark.

What People Are Saying About Abu Dhabi
We did all the things that they told us and we could have a great experience in Rally Tour, sunset in the desert. We think that Camel Ride can be better, like a mini tour around de "Oasis area" with more camels... But everything is great!
Thank you Hussein for the enjoyable tour with you. Very interesting conversation, focused on the guests in the car and very engaged. It was really a pleasure to drive with Hussein.
All was great. However, our expectations were for a longer Camel riding time and more time to take pics on a Camel. Camel riding area was dark so our own pictures were not good. There was one local photographer who was taking pics with a good flash and then selling them to people.
It was amazing adventure, the driver was very good and our adrenaline was in the highest point! Never forget this trip in the desert!
My guide Hussein was very articulate and amusing. I had a lot of fun rocketing around the desert. Hussein was very attentive to our needs, checking in with us to see if we were comfortable. He also took me and two other guests sand boarding. Make sure you ask early on if you want to do sand boarding, he had to get the board and drive us to another dune after getting to camp. The food was delicious. Lots of variety I might not have known to order on my own at a restaurant. 9/10 overall
