Day trips from Dubai is a must if you like nature. United Arab Emirates is a beautiful country filled with many spectacular landscapes, deserts, beaches and hiking spots. A lot of them reachable from Dubai in only a few hours. 

Going to the desert 

A favourite destination is the desert. Here you can do almost anything; riding camels, dune bashing, sand boarding, ATV, watch a fire show, falcon shows, get authentic Arabian food, etc. The opportunities are endless and what's even better- it's just outside the city.

When going to the desert, you need the right vehicle and great orientations skills. If you are not in possession of these, then book a tour and make someone else worry about all the planning while you just enjoy the experience.

For a desert trip we suggest Get Your Guide that has a variety of different trips available:

  • A popular day trip is getting the full package of: riding the sand dunes in a 4WD followed by a camel ride and BBQ dinner in a desert camp

  • Another popular one is the sunrise desert safari that will give you one of the most beautiful experiences of the desert

  • Finally, there is the hot air balloon tour, which takes you on an amazing journey up in the sky for you to see the beautiful landscape
