With all the best entertainment in the Middle East in one place, Qatar is ready to offer adventures by sea, land, and sky, surprising with awe-inspiring scenery and hospitable culture. Guests have access to a vast selection of water sports, theme parks and excursions, including the desert.
For everyone who missed real extreme adventures, Qatar Tourism has prepared a selection of the most exciting places that visitors are looking forward to:
- The tallest indoor roller coaster at Quest Doha amusement park
Quest Doha is an indoor theme park in the Msheireb district, which opened in July 2021. Quest Doha covers an area of 32,000 square meters and houses over 30 attractions, including the world’s tallest indoor roller coaster and the largest free-fall tower. The Park is designed for travelers of all ages.
During the visit, guests will be able to plunge into the atmosphere of time travel. The theme park features three time zones: the City of Imagination, which embodies the beautiful present, Orixville, which depicts the ancient Arab past; and Gravity, the future in the era of space travel. So, isn’t this the perfect way to spend your day?
- Scuba diving in Qatar’s “Inland Sea” Khor Al Adaid
Khor Al Adaid is the perfect snorkeling spot in Qatar, with seaweed thickets, vibrant coral reefs and a rich aquatic fauna that allow travelers to immerse themselves in a maritime wonderland. The active diving season in Qatar lasts from April to June, and from September to November, visitors are offered various programs – deep sea and reef diving and descent to sunken ships.
- Sandboarding in Khor Al Adaid
When the borders reopen, skiers and snowboarders who skipped winter holidays due to covid restrictions will be able to travel to Qatar to discover the exciting sport of sandboarding. Hikers will find the majestic dunes that stretch along the coast of Qatar in Khor al-Adaid. Going down the sand at maximum speed on a board will give you an adrenaline rush that will be remembered for a lifetime.
- Desert Safari & Stargazing
A journey across sand dunes up to 50 meters high, which can only be undertaken by off-road vehicle, will not leave fans of extreme and adventure indifferent – the clouds of sand from under the wheels, the roar of the engine and the mesmerizing beauty of the desert will surely make your heartbeat faster.
Romantic travelers can book one of Qatar Tourism’s new “Astro tour” in partnership with Gulf Adventures. The tour includes a magical moonlight camel safari and a traditional Bedouin barbecue, followed by a closer look at the starry sky in a private session led by an experienced astronomer.
- Paragliding at the Sky Masters sports club
Experience a unique aerial adventure 500 feet above Qatar with the Sky Master’s program, the Middle East’s largest national air sports center. The club offers tourists to study all types of paragliding (paramotor, paragliding) and provides all the necessary equipment and services, guided by the highest world quality standards. Many travelers will agree that there is no better way to admire the sights of Doha than from a bird’s eye view.
P.S – how to get around in Doha?
For comfortable movement around the city, travelers can use taxi services, including the Uber application, downloaded from the AppStore or Google Play.
You can also get to the desired point with exceptional comfort using the metro, consisting of three lines. In addition, you can also opt for car rental companies in Doha.
- Kayaking on the Al Takira mangroves
Rafting down the water along Qatar’s gorgeous mangrove forests north of Al Khor is a must for everyone at least once in a lifetime. The shores buried in greenery attract birds: flamingos, herons, kingfishers, waders and even pelicans. However, to fully enjoy the waters of Binh Gunnam Island, known as Purple, and explore the picturesque mangroves, it is best to use a kayak.
