Overview

Experience a piece of the fabled “Empty Quarter” (Rub al Khali) desert and view the ruins of the ancient city of Ubar. The Empty Quarter, which is the largest sand desert in the world, covers a wide expanse of the Arabian Peninsula, including parts of Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E.,Yemen and Oman. The desert offers large sand dunes up to 250 m in height and is home to many unique desert plants and animals. At the edge of the desert is the town of Shisr, host to the archaelogical site of Ubar. This medieval city was a hub of the frankincense trade, plied by camel caravans across the desert. You can walk the grounds of this Unesco World Heritage Site and view this archaealogical park in person.

The tour leaves Salalah at 1 pm arrive back at 8 PM. There will be a stop to photograph camel herds near Shisr before visiting the archaeological site. From Shisr you will head into the desert proper where you can ride the sand dunes in an 4X4 vehicle, climb the dunes yourself, and bask in the beautiful sunset.
