The Best Outdoor Adventures in Dubai

Are you an adrenaline junkie or perhaps you are always searching for thrill-seeking activities whenever you visit a new city? Dubai, the most popular city in the United Arab Emirates, does not disappoint those looking to go an extra mile when it comes to adventure. If you have visited every possible landmark in the city, including the Dubai Museum, then definitely try out these outdoor adventures you have been dreaming about!

Desert Camping

Why stay in a luxurious hotel when you can camp out in nature? Dubai has an abundance of the desert area, and with the temperatures now dropping slowly, you can throw some gear into a rented 4X4 and prepare yourself to spend a night underneath the stars. Definitely research and book overnight desert safari so that you don’t get lost in the endless and forever changing maze of sand around.

Reef and Wreck Diving

Not many know that the history of this Arab city begins with pearl diving in the sea. Reefs are sparse along the Dubai coastline, but a guided trip will take you a few miles offshore where you can even get a chance to explore some wrecks resting peacefully at the bottom of the sea.


What better way to enjoy the ever-changing topography of Dubai than with an aerial view. Get yourself the ultimate thrilling experience of skyview as you get to truly experience Palm Jumeirah and other such architectural wonders while you tumble out of an aero plane.

Mountain Biking

Whoever thought this Emirate is just filled with sand is definitely in for a surprise! The Hajar Mountains run east of Dubai and mountain biking in this rough terrain is a very popular activity. Explore the narrow trails, animal paths and wadi beds where your only company besides your friends would be a guide, and some lizards, snakes, mountain goats and wild donkeys. Amateur and professional cyclists can admire the beautiful mountainous region of Hatta from a collection of curated trails at the Hatta Mountain Bike Trail Centre.

The facility offers four distinct route levels so new riders can enjoy the more beginner-friendly trails on the green routes. Meanwhile, veteran riders take on the black trails that require a greater level of skill.

The trails are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and are completely free to use. Just bring your own bike or rent one on your way out of the city at Wolfi’s Bike Shop. And make sure you grab a copy of the trail map before you set off.

If you want to continue your adventure overnight, Hatta Trail Camp is also available for use at any time. For alternative thrills, make sure to stop by the Hatta Wadi Hub and enjoy a whole range of unique experiences, including archery, axe throwing, mountain karting and more. All set for some adrenaline? Either try out one of these fantastic activities or book some tickets at the theme park tours in Dubai with your family for a fun-filled time.
