Arabian Sunset Horse Riding & Stable Tour

5 reviews
Ride an Arabian horse in the desert on a Bahrain horseback riding tour, with the option to add traditional Arabic snacks and a costumed photo session. Desert temperatures can be punishing in the middle of the day, but this tour is timed so you can enjoy the cooler air and golden light of the desert at sunset; you’ll have views of the UNESCO-listed Bahrain Fort as the sun drops into the sand.

While enjoying the roundtrip to explore Manama we also visited this fort. This large area is remarkable as probably still parts are unexplored. When arriving at the top you can see a lot of Bahrain's surroundings. There is a nice bistro 'Saffron. Well maintained area and good for a stop!

Lots of workers strolling through and construction out front, but not much going on within. Fort is in impressive shape, but zero signage. No one was there to charge us the nominal fee.

The Sheikh Salman Bin Ahmed Al Fateh Fort is a must visit in Bahrain. located next to the coast, the weather is lovely (we went around midday). Walk through the numerous rooms and be amazed by the moat (unfortunately its dry). If you enjoy a nice walk and soak in history, visit the fort.

My brother and I parked outside the fort and went straight to the restaurant as we'd been recommended the breakfast. Lovely spot with a fantastic view. Breakfast was amazing, 3 types of bread, samosas, pasty type things, and 6 types of dips and pulses. We shared one breakfast between us and couldn't finish it. Had a nice walk around the fort. Not a lot of information about it but it made more fun imagining it. I think children would love it

After visiting The Tree of Life, we drove 20 km N following Google Maps through difficult Riffa. Parking was also a bit difficult to find nearby at noon. We walked the exterior, admiring the clean lines of its early 1800 fortress architecture, arriving at the back with its long view over a broad expanse of white housing.After winding through its interior, we exited the front and walked down to the Military Museum, noting its happiest visitor would be an interested local. Driving out on the main highway was easy access to the freeway northeast.
