Looking for some exhilarating adventure in Dubai? Try any (or all) of these activities! You would definitely enjoy them.
- Dune Bashing
You can’t brag about living or visiting Dubai without seeing its famous deserts. Dune bashing, a kind of off-roading, is one of the many adventurous desert activities you can try in Dubai. This 4×4 adrenaline ride tours guests across the amazing sand dunes recklessly. It’s a fun and thrilling experience and lasts usually for 30 minutes. You can try this for discounted prices at Desert Safari in UAE.
- Outdoor Skydiving
If you’re bold and courageous enough to jump from a helicopter and fall at over 120 miles per hour, Skydive Dubai is the best match for you. They offer tandem skydiving with a professional skydiver for beginners and solo skydiving for the experienced. They have two skydiving locations: Palm Dropzone and Dubai Desert Campus. Cool and trained videographers will be there to record the most intense seconds of your life so you can revive the exciting experience over and over again.
- Scuba Diving
There’s an aquarium in The Palm, Dubai that allows certified and non-certified scuba divers to swim along with dolphins and over 65,000 marine animals. Guests aged 10 to 16 years old are required to be accompanied by a certified diver. This activity would definitely catch the interest of adventurous folks since it would expose them to different types of water creatures such as sharks. The slots are limited so it’s best to book this activity beforehand.
If you have the guts to brave the heat, the uncertainties in the wilderness and the lengthy trails, try hiking at the Ras Al Khaimah. Its trail would lead you to the Hajar Mountains foothills, across stunning views, several goat farms and small villages. Those who are looking for more difficult terrain could try Jebel Hafeet.
Those who would like to try board sports can try sandboarding at Dubai Desert Safari. Just like the usual snowboarding, it requires you to stand with both feet strapped to a board. If you’ve tried this before, you can use the board without bindings. The only difference is that you would slide on sand dunes rather than snow.
We know you can’t wait to try all of them. In case you’d look for a sumptuous dinner after trying at least one of these activities, we suggest that you go to a Dhow cruise dinner. They serve different gourmet cuisines; they have good music; and the cruise would tour you around awe inspiring views in Dubai. It’s the perfect way to end a thrilling day.
