This adventurous journey will take you to the great sand dunes that adorn the South of Qatar. Where the asphalt ends, the 4x4 professional drivers will deflate the tires to make the vehicle ready for your breathtaking trip across the desert. The unforgettable roller-coaster drive will take you to the marvelous Inland Sea, near the border between Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and end at QIA's permanent desert camp on its sandy beaches. There, you can relax and just enjoy the tranquility of the view, or keep moving with a swim in the Inland Sea's crystal waters, a game of beach volleyball, or sand skiing. All this is while a professional chef is preparing a BBQ meal including soft drinks and water. The camp is equipped with Bedouin0style tents, carpeted and with traditional seating, fresh water for showers, and bathrooms.
In addition to the two tours described above, Qatar International Adventure offers various other activities for your free time in Qatar.
