5:30 -9 am. (3.5 hours, goal of 10 KM) Sunrise and sunset in the desert are magical, something not to be missed! Even those that were unsure of how 'far they could go' ended up walking the entire time both days with the group and completing the entire distance. A support car is always nearby if needed. Everyone will have a 'rest stop' every hour which may seem like a lot, but this is the way we ensure that everyone stays hydrated and healthy. Each rest stops will also have food,energizing snacks, and additional water available.
THE AMAZING RESIDENCE
You cannot see the stars like this until you are far away from the city lights. It's simply spectacular. The residence is fully equipped with full bathrooms, air conditioned rooms to accommodate all who would like to sleep in them, and all bedding needs, electrical outlets and an amazing spring-fed pool. At night guest choose a spot to sleep either on top of the dune, on the grass under the stars, or under the traditional arabic style majlis. This is an authentic experience in a small group, remote area. This event is open for all, but classified as a moderate hike due to the distance we walk through the desert.
Our trek leaders are trained in Wilderness Advanced First Aid and have mapped the trek prior to our walk. Our teams will be communicating via walkie with the drivers and other leaders, and ensuring the health and safety of everyone in the team.
