Unforgettable Dubai – Activities on Sand and Sea

Bike Rental Dubai

Motocross, a type of motorcycle racing held on off-road dirt tracks, owes its beginnings to the United Kingdom in the early 29th century. Classes of motocross racing include Enduro, Freestyle, SuperMoto, ATV/Quad Motocross, Supercross, Sidecarcross, Pit bikes, and mini-motocross.

MX Dubai dirt bike and buggy tour operators offer rentals for off-road desert exploration. Alternatively, if you have your own bike, you can join an organized tag-along tour. Motorbike, buggy, and quad tours are a great way to meet new people, travel safely in a strange land, and pick up a few hints and tricks to try when you’re riding at home.

Desert Motorbike Riding

Enduro motocross involves biking long-distance over seriously challenging terrain. Riding in the desert isn’t all about frolicking over gently rolling sand dunes. Remember the ambulance sequences in the 1958 film, “Ice Cold in Alex,” starring John Mills, Anthony Quayle, and Sylvia Sims?” But don’t worry, your skilled guides will do their best to keep you out of trouble, and you’re sure to find an ice-cold beverage at the end of the ride without having to endure all the way to Alexandria.

Competitive freestyle motocross, FMX, is a variant of the sport that concentrates on jumps and stunts. In the beginning, you’ll want to focus mainly on popping simple desert wheelies and modest leaps off small dunes. You can work your way up to more adventurous maneuvers like flips, backflips, and excursions from your seat at heights of up to 40 feet. In the desert, at least, the surface provides a soft landing if you become permanently separated from your bike.

For many people, basic motorbike, buggy, and quad bike riding offer enough thrills for their stay in Dubai. The Emirates offer some of the best medical care in the world, but that’s not what you came here to see.

Hot Air Balloon

Embarking on a hot air balloon adventure in Dubai offers a unique and breathtaking way to witness the beauty of the Arabian desert. As the sun rises over the vast expanse of golden dunes, you’ll be gently lifted into the sky in a hot air balloon, experiencing an unparalleled sense of tranquility and freedom. This serene journey allows you to glide over the picturesque landscape, providing a bird’s eye view of the sprawling dunes, the rugged Hajar Mountains, and the chance to spot desert wildlife such as gazelles and camels roaming freely below. The experience is not just about the stunning views; it’s about feeling a connection to the vastness and timelessness of the desert. The calmness of the early morning, coupled with the soft hues of dawn, creates a magical atmosphere that’s both uplifting and awe-inspiring.

Desert Safari

A Dubai desert safari can mean anything from a three to six-hour evening tour through the red deserts on the outskirts of the city to a Bedouin camp for a gourmet barbecue. Your journey starts with a dune-bashing 4WD drive, followed by a desert sandboarding experiment and/or a camel ride. If you like, you can change into one of our comfortable traditional costumes. Then sit down with coffee and some dates while you enjoy the entertainment, which might include belly dancing, a fire show and/or a traditional Tanura dance show.

Afterward, you’ll have a chance to observe the craft of henna painting, smoke a shisha pipe or take a selfie with a falcon on your shoulder. Feast under the stars on the salad with kebabs or shawarma.

If you’ve got the time and want to sample Arabian desert life as it was half a century ago, camp overnight in a tent, where you can sample similar food and entertainment as on the evening tour.

Dubai Desert Wildlife

However you choose to see Dubai, on the back of a motorbike or quad, in a dune buggy or a 4WD jeep, or from the water, some you might encounter anything from a giant turtle to an Arabian oryx. Other local fauna includes camels and falcons, naturally, not to mention horses and deer. You’ll want to come back again and again.
