Where to enjoy outdoor activities in Qatar

By Qatar Living

With Qatar becoming the top spot for tourism given the upcoming events in the country, there has been more than one option to spend your time here. Along with parks having the options of cycling, you can also have professionals guiding you along the way, and your options will be endless! QL brings to you our favorite outdoor activities in Qatar (the season calls for it after all!)

Desert Safari

You cannot be in Qatar and not include this in one of your top outdoor activities in the country. You get yourself a private 4x4 and enjoy the rugged dune bashing ride on the golden sand of Doha. Depending on the kind of package you choose, you usually stop either for BBQ or tea on this adventure. You can even opt for a half-day safari if you’re short on time.

Diving

Qatari waters have been the ideal spot for divers for as long as we have known. So, whether it is some diving sites at Al Khor, Mesaieed city or you discover the Old Club Reef, your diving options are unlimited. The crystal clear waters with the marine life that the country offers, especially during peak seasons, make this the perfect outdoor activity in Qatar. Most of the sites are accessible with a 4x4 and you’ll be able to easily come across them. However, if you are planning to go scuba diving, you can get in touch with professionals who will help you with classes and gear! A minimum Qr 200 for scuba diving and free of cost basic, shore diving will help you discover Qatar from a divers’ eye!

Rock Climbing

You’re lucky to be in a country that gives you diverse options for outdoor activities. Several large rock formations on the outskirts of Doha will give you yet another adrenaline-pumping experience like no other. Bir Zekreet, Musufur Sinkhose in Umm Al Shabrum and Zekreet in west-side Qatar will help you build this talent up! With extraordinary rock formations across these locations, you can climb or even go for bouldering! If you want to join a community, Doha Climbers on Facebook may be willing to take you under their wings.

 

Quad Biking 

When planning your trip to one of the deserts in the country, make sure you add quad biking to your list. An activity suitable for beginners and experienced people, you can buy yourself this unique experience anywhere in the country.

Jet Skiing

Beaches and water sports go hand in hand – it's the rule of thumb! You can even get yourself jet-skiing safari tours on various spots in Qatar such as the corniche or even the pearl.

If you’re looking for some casual, immediate solution, heading to the corniche and getting yourself a dhow will cost you as low as QR 15. Those colorful dhows are there to provide some of the best 15 minutes trips to the skyline and back!
