    Description

    You start the tour with a visit to the harbour of Al Khor, the centre for pearl diving and fishing in ancient times. Then you will get to know Al Thakira Mangroves, a large vegetation area that attracts a varied bird life with flamingos and herons. Al Thakira Mangroves lies north of the city of Al Khor and offers a large area of natural green, in sharp contrast to the surrounding desert landscape. With a kayak, which is available at different tour operators, one can experience the mangroves particularly well. You will then discover Al Zubarah Fort on the north-west coast of Qatar, a UNESCO-approved cultural heritage site. The surrounding area covers 60 hectares with other large archaeological works. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is one of the most extensive and best-preserved examples of an 18th-19th century settlement. It comprises the remains of a walled coastal town, once considered one of the most important pearl diving and trading centres on the Gulf, with connections to the Indian Ocean. Finally, you will visit a traditional Qatari village in the north, with houses of limestone and mud. Al Shamal is the northern point of Qatar, from where you can see Bahrain on clear days.
