For those more inclined to adventure, a variety of outdoor excursions will be introduced to satiate any thrill-seeker.
Residents can reconnect with nature on a camping and desert safari at the Inland Sea’s Al Bahar Beach Camp, enjoy a barbeque lunch or dinner, or rent a 4x4 for exhilarating rides over the sand dunes.
Tour operator 365 Adventures will draw residents to Qatar’s stunning coastline with special promotions on kayaking and fishing trips, paratriking and scuba diving, speed boat and yacht rentals, in addition to sunrise and full-day desert safari packages.
Through fruitful collaboration with its stakeholders, QNTC is developing attractive promotions and activations to strengthen the tourism industry and ancillary sectors such as retail, culture and hospitality, working to deliver a vibrant calendar of events throughout the year that reinforce Qatar’s position as a preferred tourist destination for families. This year’s summer programme presents ample choices for citizens and residents to explore and rediscover the unique experiences Qatar has to offer.
In preparation for welcoming back the community, QNTC recently launched the Qatar Clean programme in partnership with the Ministry of Public Health, which sets strict standards for sterilisation and disinfection that all hotel establishments must adhere to, ensuring guests can enjoy a worry-free experience this summer and beyond.
