Explore Big Red at sunrise with this dune buggy & sand boarding package in Dubai's Red Desert.
Experience the desert’s tallest dune at first light on this sand bashing adventure in the Al Madam plateau. A unique landscape renowned for its Bedouin heritage and as a motocross mecca, Big Red has become a national icon – drawing in dune bashers from around the world to its sloping flanks and 30ft panorama peak. Head to the very top at sunrise on this buggy & sand boarding excursion in the Red Desert.
This activity takes place in the Red Desert in Dubai. Located near Sharjah City, it is home to the area’s biggest dune ‘Big Red’ near Al Badayer. Part of the Dubai-Sharjah-Ajman metropolitan area, it is renowned among 4x4 enthusiasts as having some of the UAE’s most impressive dunes.
Meet your guide at the activity base in Al Badayer for this sunrise dune buggy & sand boarding experience in the Red Desert. An ancient landscape that is renowned for its shifting peaks and iconic red sand, spend a morning exploring the largest sand desert in the world with an experienced guide. Travelling to the undulating red sands of the Al Madam valley, start with a short safety briefing and demo before you set off into the unknown – using a two-seater dune buggy. Following a local guide, enjoy the Arabian vistas and unique terrain that charts historical Bedouin trade route – navigating knife-edge ridges & vast plains to the top of Big Red – the desert’s tallest dune. From here, you’ll get a chance to try sandboarding – using this impressive peak as your playground. Mark the moment with postcard-quality photos of the desert before you return to the activity base, where a shuttle service will be waiting to transfer you back to your accommodation.
