Cycle your way to natural fitness


We all know that feeling of trying to balance several things on the weekend – you have your chores, friends to catch up on, weekly fitness goals, as well as taking some time out to do the things you enjoy too.

What if we told you that we could help you with some of this? Real Expeditions has bundled your exercise and ‘fun’ into one expedition. Beware, this is not for the faint hearted! Strip away from the comfort of everyday life for a truly authentic desert adventure guaranteed to challenge your limits.

If you’re an adventure enthusiast, this is just what you need – get your friends along as we explore the expansive terrain of Jebel Faya on ‘Fat Bikes’ and take in the picturesque landscapes as well as the varied wildlife. Still need a bit of convincing? To round it off, we’ll be sending across GoPro footage of your ‘real’ adventure in a few days’ time!

What you can expect


At Real Expeditions, all our packages are tailor-made to a degree to suit our clients’ needs. Keeping this in mind, we start the day’s activities with a quick chat providing guidance on the trail, health and safety advice and to understand any specific conditions you may have.

Your group will consist of a maximum of 6 riders – we like to keep the numbers less to provide each and every person with the individual attention they deserve.

The expedition starts with handing out of your ‘adventure survival kit’ consisting of a helmet, a walkie-talkie and a mini-backpack complete with various essentials including a mini health and safety kit.

Our bespoke Desert Cycling expeditions


At Real Expeditions, we understand that everyone has a different degree of affinity to adventure. We have therefore created three types of custom packages to suit varied tastes.

‘Fat Bike’ 3-hour desert adventure

Spanning 3 hours, it includes a REX Adventurer kit, the Jebel Faya trek, a leisurely resting point with quick bites and a scenic journey back to the campsite.

‘Fat Bike’ desert adventure including an Overnight Stay (1 night, 2 days)

If the exhilarating trip leaves you wanting for more, or just wanting to sit back and relax, you can upgrade your package with a total overnight stay!

Round off the nature trail with a real Bedouin dinner around the campfire back at our campsite. You can then enjoy local folk music in the background while you chat under the clear starlight night with your friends, family, or new acquaintances in your group before you retire to your spacious authentic tents for a good night’s rest. Wake up in the morning to the sounds of nature, and enjoy a light breakfast and a cuppa before heading out to your homes and back to reality.

 

Exclusive ‘Fat Bike’ adventure

If you take your fitness really seriously, and would like an all-round highly customized adventure for you and a select group of friends or family enjoying full privacy with our adventured instructor, please consult with our specialist for further details.
