Holiday packages offer breath-taking desert experience under the stars
Eager tourists can reach for the stars when travel restrictions are eased further with a unique astronomy experience.
Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) has launched the exclusive astro-tourism packages in partnership with Gulf Adventures. Travellers will be able to enjoy the breath-taking night sky of the desert and learn about the stars, guided by an astronomer.
There are four new experiences to choose from, from camping under the stars, to being escorted from a luxury hotel to a moonlit excursion.
Chief operating officer of Qatar National Tourism Council, Berthold Trenkel, said: “Qatar’s desert is a perfect spot for astronomy enthusiasts to observe the dark and starry skies. The packages will make for unforgettable experiences that travel-lovers can look forward to when we welcome them back to the country.
“This dazzling new addition will add to a multitude of activities visitors can enjoy in our diverse and unique country.”
The immersive desert experiences are perfect for adventure seekers and those looking for a romantic getaway. From the peaks of the Qatari dunes, visitors will see the desert like never before.
The exclusive tours include a magical moon-lit camel safari and a traditional Bedouin BBQ prepared by a chef. Dinner will be followed by a deep exploration into the starry desert skies, in a one-to-one stargazing session with an astronomer.

The experiences cater for guests opting for a 5-star hotel, at the majestic Marsa Malaz Kempinski, and those who prefer to camp outside and be at one with the desert skies.
Guests choosing to sleep beneath the stars can select an Arabian style royal tent at Regency Sealine Camp, which offers modern facilities in the heart of the desert landscape.
The impressive site overlooks Khor al Adaid, also known as the Inland Sea, which is a recognised UNESCO site.
