The Empty Quarter, or ‘Rub Al Khali’ in Arabic, is the world’s largest sand desert that so intrigued Lawrence of Arabia and the explorer Wilfred Thesiger. In clear weather, the Empty Quarter is one of the best places on Earth to watch the stars as it’s completely free of light pollution. It is also the home of some of the highest sand dunes in the world. The length of the tour depends on the area the participants want to cover. We recommend taking at least two days. It is recommended that you start the program from Salalah or as part of a program that includes Salalah.


Day 1:
Leave Salalah in the early morning on route to Ramlat (sands) Alhishman to camp there. On the way to Ramlat Alhishman, we stop to see the ancient town of Ubar. You will enjoy traditional songs and dance, ride camels, and climb or ski the sand dunes.
Day 2:
Leave the camp and head toward Meten to explore much higher dunes, including one of the highest dunes in the world - Ramlat Algudilah. You will spend the day there and then head back to the camp at Ramlat Alhishman.
Day 3:
Drive north to explore another part of the Empty Quarter in Maqshan and spend the night there in another desert camp.
Day 4:
There is an option of continuing to explore and enjoy the sands of the Empty Quarter or head back to Salalah.
