April 15, 2022

Dune bashing

If you travel to a snowy mountain and get the chance to ski, there are also some adventurous options for you in the desert. If you do go, dune bashing is a good activity to include in your tour package.

Length of desert

LIWA is an oasis. This means it is surrounded by desert on all sides. The desert is located in Abu Dhabi, but its area extends to cover as far as Saudi Arabia. What this means is that the desert consists of a lot of different landscapes and sights that a traveller can enjoy seeing.

Adventure factors

When you think of the desert, it may look bland at first. But take a closer look and see that there are many interesting options to experience here. You don’t even have to leave the comfort of your vehicle. Dune bashing and quad biking are just a few of the activities you could be doing as soon as you arrive in the beautiful desert. If these aren’t enough, some operators make it easy for you to add more adventure to your itinerary with just a few minutes of discussion.

Sand boarding

Another great adventure you can have in the desert, sand boarding is for people who want to get a different perspective of the desert. It is done under the supervision of experts and is relatively safe. So, what are you waiting for? Get out there and join the ranks of adventurers today.


There are many accommodation options in the region. Depending on your budget, it’s easy to find a great place to stay. All the details are easily available online and so it doesn’t take much time to explore options. Resorts have a series of facilities available, such as well furnished rooms with dining options, which ensure that guests have a fabulous stay. One of the recent 5 star hotels in the region is Qasr Al Sarab.

Car museum

The United Arab Emirates is home to some of the finest automobiles. You’ll find world-class cars on the highway, but the history really lies in the museums. There’s a car museum on your way to UAE and it has vintage and modern cars, all under one roof. It might be free, but it’s well worth the visit for automobile lovers. It gives you an understanding of how cars evolved over time and what they look like today.

Tal Moreeb

Not too far from the LIWA oasis is Tal Moreeb, a famous drag racing site. Located on a hill top at 300 meters height, this is one of the highest sand hills in the world. The Arabic word “Tal” translates to mean “mountain”, which suggests that it is not for the faint-hearted. The region is 22 km from the center of the desert.

Sunset photo

We take photographs to remember beautiful moments, and in Dubai, that’s particularly true. At sunset, the sky turns spectacularly blue against the red of the city’s buildings in the background. The sun disappears below the horizon, enticing us to come out on the street for one last glimpse. There is no better way to remember a trip than to capture these memories on a camera.


When you think of the desert, you might imagine tents from a bygone era. However, things are different today. With technology to rely on, you can opt for the different types of tents, depending on whether you need a budget accommodation plan or a lavish stay facility. Let’s explore this idea in more detail.

Quad bikes at LIWA

Adventure seekers like to do more than just sightsee when they travel, don’t they? LIWA Desert is a land of opportunity full of things to do. For the adventure lover, it is a place where you can experience the thrill of riding on a quad bike. These bikes were designed for the harsh desert terrain that makes for challenging driving. However, because these bikes are available in only one place in the world (LIWA), you will need to take them on your own.

Highest Dunes at UAE

Did you know that The Lavi Desert holds the highest sand dunes in the country? A visit to the LIWA desert provides a chance to experience the beauty of the desert. It is different from other deserts, and it refreshes your mind.

Qars Al Sarab

Located in the heart of the Sahara Desert, this area is most analogous to the desert’s once-great civilization. This is where you can learn about a bygone era of what life was like in the desert. There’s never been a tour without a visit to the prestigious Qars Al Sarab. Navigating through the desert is easy, and with the help of our great tour planning services, you’ll be all set.
