Dubai is a great place to have an adventure, packed with luxury tours, safaris and a range of fun activities. The climate is warm throughout the year, so there’s no need to stay indoors. Every day in Dubai is ripe for a new adventure!
Hire a Jeep Wrangler or Toyota Land Cruiser and go dune bashing around Dubai Desert in style and comfort. Or leave your wheels back at base and go camel trekking.
If you prefer to explore beyond the desert, there are plenty of trails on which to go mountain-biking. Explore the wadi beds and animal tracks; spot mountain goats and wild donkeys on your route.
There are plenty of climbing and hiking opportunities too. The Hajar Mountains can reach as high as 10,000 feet.
Adventure in Dubai isn’t just about traveling overland. There’s plenty to explore on and under the water too. Take a boat onto the Persian Gulf and go deep-sea fishing for Barracuda King Fish, trevally, snapper, and grouper. Cruise the beautiful mangroves along the west coast in a sea kayak and spot flamingos and turtles.
If you’re looking for some sumptuousness to go with your sea adventure, why not charter a luxury yacht around the Dubai coastline.
And if you’re a fan of deep water scuba diving, the sheer number of reefs and wrecks to explore is staggering. The Anchor Barge is an artificial reef 25m down. It’s encrusted with beautiful coral and frequented by the amazing color-changing cuttlefish. Around the warmer waters of Fujairah, on the east coast of the peninsula, there are even more reefs and islands to explore. Here you can swim with dolphins.
If you want to have fun and adventure in the air too, Dubai has it covered. Take a balloon tour over the Dubai desert, fly over the city in a seaplane, or sky-dive above the glittering Dubai Palm Jumeirah Marina.
Whatever your dreams of adventure, Dubai will make them a reality.
