Qatar 365 explores some of the best things to do in Qatar for adventure seekers or dreamers, from rock climbing, parkour or with events like the LEGO Expo to try and build anything you can think of.

Whether you’re looking for adventure or a family-friendly activity, Qatar has it all. The Qatar 365 team took part in fun indoor and outdoor activities. Let’s start with something unexpected: rock climbing. Laila Humairah visited Aspire Zone, home to Qatar’s first outdoor climbing centre and EsQalar sports. Climbers can try their hand at a variety of techniques – rope climbing, lead climbing, bouldering and free climbing – on 10.5-metre-high walls modelled on the famous Zekreet rocks on the western side of the peninsula.

For a different adventure, Laila met Talal Altamimi, founder of Freestylers Tribe, the pioneering parkour gym in Qatar. Parkour is a sport that combines running, climbing, jumping and acrobatics and offers a unique way to overcome obstacles. Talal shared his journey, the challenges he overcame and the skills he developed. He even designed a program for children, not only to teach them the sport but also to build their confidence. With the growing popularity of the sport, Talal sees parkour as a potential Olympic discipline in the near future.

Finally, Aadel Haleem visited the LEGO exhibition that was recently held at the Qatar National Convention Center for those looking for a mental challenge rather than a physical one. Unique Lego exhibits were built across 10,000 square meters; it was the perfect place for children and the young at heart to admire amazing creations or use their imagination to play and build with the legendary bricks.
