Dubai Desert Sports and Adventures

A Dubai Desert escape

Desert Adventure

You can't visit this desert city and not explore its surrounding sandy plains and dunes, some of which reach heights of over 200 metres. Swap the bustling cityscape for a peaceful camel ride across desert scenery, go sandboarding down the dunes or tackle them on an exhilarating 4x4 jeep safari. Alternatively, experience the desert at night and enjoy a barbecue under the stars.

Indoor Ski Slopes

There aren't many places you'll find soaring temperatures one minute and ski slopes with real snow the next. The five indoor slopes at Ski Dubai, part of the huge Mall of the Emirates, run from a 60-metre-high manmade mountain complete with ski lifts and -1°C temperatures. Next to the slopes there's a 3,000-square-metre snow park with toboggan runs, an ice slide, climbing towers, an ice cave, and even penguins. 


Enjoy a round or two on Dubai's world-class greens and fairways. The Emirates Golf Club hosts the Dubai Desert Classic every year, and Jumeirah Golf Estates is home to two courses designed by Greg Norman. Other courses include the Els Club at Dubai Sports City, Montgomerie Dubai, The Desert Course at Arabian Ranches and Dubai Creek Golf & Yacht Club.
