Qatar launches Astro-tourism experiences on the eve of May’s spectacular supermoon

Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) has launched exclusive Astro-tourism experiences in partnership with a premium tour operator, Gulf Adventures, brightening up stargazers’ travel plans when borders re-open.

Visitors can enjoy a whole lot of space under the breath-taking night sky of the desert. With excellent visibility, the Qatari desert provides a truly unique setting to learn about the stars, guided by an astronomer.

The unique ‘Arabian Nights’ packages are available to book through Gulf Adventures and are redeemable until 30 April 2022. 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 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, which offers modern facilities in the heart of the desert landscape.

The packages are in line with the Qatar Clean programme to protect visitors from COVID-19 and measures will be in place to adhere to government guidelines.
