Best Quad Biking Options in Egypt
Quad biking is one of the best ways to experience the haunting beauty of Egypt’s massive desert expanses. This adventure sport enables you to leave behind the hustle and bustle of resorts and travel into the desert atop an ATV. If you’re worried because you’ve never ridden an ATV, don’t worry! All ATV tour operators conduct a practice session before allowing you to manoeuvre the vehicle on your own. After completing the trial session, your tour operator will lead you through a guided exploration across the majestic Sinai Desert. You will traverse the plains and negotiate your way through large sand dunes, canyons and valleys. Depending on the time you choose, you may also get an opportunity to view a desert sunrise and sunset, both of which are once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The following are some of the best quad biking options in Egypt:
