Long favoured by intrepid travellers, the rugged interior, sand dunes and vast desert stretches of the Middle East hold adventure aplenty.
In Jordan, travel to Petra by bike, or hike to the historic ruins. Tackle Wadi Rum on two wheels or take a 4WD vehicle to explore the desert.
The immense sand dunes, stunning coastline and rugged mountains make Oman a superb destination for activity and adventure holidays. Take a 4WD vehicle to explore the landscapes and get off the beaten path; for the really adventurous, the vast Empty Quarter, or Rub'al Khali, in the south of the country waits to be discovered.
These options are just a small selection of what it is possible to do in the Middle East; talk to a destination specialist to tailor-make your trip to your personal preferences.
