Pros and Cons of Quad Biking in Dubai

Quad Biking Dubai

Off-road tours such as Quad Biking Dubai are the most popular adventure activity among tourists and locals in UAE. These tours take you on an exciting journey through the vast Arabian deserts surrounding the city, where one can enjoy some heart-pounding experiences and discover the natural beauty of the area otherwise hidden from the tall buildings.

Despite how much fun these tours sound, they might not be the right choice for everyone who wishes to explore the deserts. Those with heart and breathing problems should avoid these rides; other alternatives are available.

We have prepared a short list of pros and cons to help you decide whether Quad Bike Dubai is the right choice for adventure. So be sure to read the article to the end.

Pros of Booking a Quad Biking Dubai Tour

If you love adventure rides, then quad biking is definitely something to try for the following reasons:

  • Enjoy a Thrilling Adventure

Driving a quad bike in bumpy and challenging desert terrain is a thrilling experience, and those who like high-speed rides and daring things will love it. Drive a quad bike to the toughest desert areas, such as Al-Badayer and Al-Awir, to enjoy a memorable time exploring and testing your driving skills.

  • Suitable for All Skill Levels

Quad bikes are easy to learn and drive. Those who have never ridden one but would like to try it can understand all the basics from a professional and go for the off-roading trip. In Dubai, the tour operators offer ‘Guided Tours,’ where they teach all the newbie riders how to drive a quad bike in the desert, the safety tips to remember, and, more importantly, they stay alongside and ensure the rider doesn’t face any difficulty.

So always book your quad bike tour from a reputable company offering expert guidance. Read customer reviews to ensure they provide the best guidance.

  • Group Activity

Quad biking Dubai is a group activity. Plan a tour with your friends and colleagues and explore the region’s beautiful deserts while doing team-bonding activities like racing challenges, photography sessions, and picnics (Al-Qadra Lake is the best picnic spot).

This is an ideal choice, considering going on a group tour. Just remember to ask everyone’s preferences and whether they are comfortable driving quad bikes. Otherwise, go for something else that involves fewer thrills.

  • Combine With Other Desert Adventures

You can even combine quad biking with other desert adventures like dune bashing, camel riding, and sand boarding to enjoy a complete desert safari experience. In addition to these adventures, safari tours often include cultural experiences at the campsite, making your trip even more memorable.

Cons of Booking a Quad Biking Tour in Dubai

Consider these drawbacks if you plan on booking a quad-biking tour in Dubai:

  • Risk of Injuries

There is always the risk of injury when driving a quad bike in the desert. Remember, quad bikes are heavy and difficult to handle when driving in difficult areas. If they roll over in case of an accident or the rider falls, he or she can fatally injure themselves or might even fracture their bones.

Remember to wear the safety equipment provided and follow your tour guide’s instructions to avoid accidents.

  • Not Suitable for People With Medical Problems

Quad biking and other desert activities are not suitable for people with medical issues like breathing problems, heart diseases, or back pain. These activities involve driving in dusty desert conditions and handling the bike on challenging terrain, which is physically demanding for the body. If you have any health problems, avoid quad biking unless the doctor approves it. Even then, remember to drive on plain surfaces or easy routes.

  • Weather Conditions

Quad bike Dubai tours are done in the desert, where the temperatures are very hot, which is unsuitable for those not accustomed to these weather conditions. The desert heat can make the ride uncomfortable and even dangerous due to dehydration or heatstroke.

Therefore, if possible, book the tour in the late evenings in Dubai during summer when temperatures are low or visit in the winter; even then, you must book in advance due to peak tourist season. In either case, keep a water bottle alongside and drink it regularly.


If you are into adventures and thrills, then surely don’t miss out on a quad biking tour in Dubai. We have prepared this brief guide explaining the pros and cons of the tour so you can decide if it’s the right activity to do or not.
