Glide down Saudi's dunes

What to Do

  • Sandboarding


    A cross between snowboarding, skateboarding and surfing, sandboarding can be traced to the ancient Egyptians, who used wood planks to glide down dunes and move cargo. These days, sandboarding is a fun way to experience Saudi’s sand dunes — especially during the milder winter months.

  • Sand sledding

    Sand sledding

    What’s more fun than sledding? Sledding without a massive winter coat! Lucky for travelers, Saudi’s many sand dunes offer just that — an opportunity to go sledding this winter without wearing multiple layers of wool for warmth. Beginners tip: Start with a small or shallow dune and go from there.
