Abu Dhabi, Empty Quarter & Liwa Desert
History & Culture
Sail on a magic carpet ride from the Emirati capital in Abu Dhabi, bustling with equal parts tradition and modernity, as well as some of the best cultural museums in the Arabian peninsula.
Thereafter, we retreat into the endless panoramic dunes of Empty Quarter, the world’s largest contiguous sand desert. Enjoy a unique array of activities, from camel trekking to visiting remote Liwa Desert.
Arriving into Abu Dhabi International Airport, you will be met for a half day Abu Dhabi city tour if time permits. Marvel at new developments around Yas Island, Saadiyat Island and take images of Abu Dhabi skyline from a vantage point. Afterwards, visit the opulent government palace of Qasr Al Watan (this working palace may be closed at times) before driving pass tree-lined Al Bateen residential area and conclude at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque.
We dedicate the day to explore two of Abu Dhabi’s great museums. Start at Louvre Abu Dhabi, the largest art and civilization museum in the Arabian peninsula. Continue to Manarat Al Saadiyat, an arts and cultural centre which serves as the site for the annual Abu Dhabi Art with collections of renowned international artists, aspiring local exhibits and future Saadiyat projects.
Today, you will be transferred from Abu Dhabi to your desert resort in the Empty Quarter, the world’s largest contiguous sand dune. On arrival, you will enjoy sunset camel trek before retreating to your resort to rest.
Today’s fascinating drive brings you to Liwa Safari near to the border of Saudi Arabia, emerging like a mirage amidst endless dunes stretching into the horizon. Thereafter, we transfer back to your resort to rest.
