Adventures in the Sinai Desert [Quad biking, camel rides, Bedouin dinners]

  • Sharm el-Sheik, Sinai Peninsula, Egypt

Last updated: 28 April, 2024

These multi-activity desert adventure tours bundle up a selection of bucket list desert experiences.

First, there’s desert quad biking, usually on a pre-determined route out to a desert camp (around 30 mins – 1 hour). There you’ll alight for a short camel ride, before settling into a ‘Bedouin camp’ for a meal and a live entertainment show. Some will also have telescopes set up for star gazing.

There are a variety tours offering different opt-ins and opt-outs of the above activities, so you can often avoid those that don’t appeal.

It’s touristy, yes, but a lot of fun if you don’t take it too seriously. Cultured travellers expecting an authentic experience will be disappointed, so set your expectations and enjoy the chance to spend some time in the desert.

Getting there & doing it

Tour operators will pick you up from most hotels, or a central collection point. They’ll drive you to a base from where you’ll take the quad bikes to the Bedouin tented area.

On some tours, you will be required to drive the Quad bikes or dune buggies back again after to the base, which unsettles some. Check before you go.

When to do it

Tours run all year round, seven days a week.

They depart late afternoon to avoid the heat, and to arrive in time for dinner.

  • Sharm el Sheikh

It is a thrilling adventure on four wheels to enjoy the fascination of the desert across the hauntingly beautiful Sinai Desert culminating in the chance to experience the sun setting over this stunning landscape. You will be picked up (choose from a sunrise or sunset trip) and taken into the desert and after a short practice session to get used to the bike, you will be taken on a guided adventure across the desert towards the Sinai Mountains for one hour 20 minutes (including 2 stops). There are plenty of open plains where you can open the throttle. This is an exhilarating way to get a closer glimpse of the extraordinary desert scenery and you do not need any previous riding experience. You will have a stop to visit the valley of Echo then another stop at a Bedouin tent in which the Bedouin tea will be offered. At the end of the tour you will drive back to your hotel.
