A hidden gem in the northern most part of the UAE, Ras Al Khaimah is a dream destination for all types of holiday seekers. The destination offers the perfect mix of beautiful beaches, terracotta deserts, archaeological sites and the towering Hajar mountain range, including the country's highest peak, Jebel Jais.  
Mountain Adventures

Thrill-seekers will surely be amazed by Jebel Jais and its attractions, from the Guinness World Record certified World's Longest Zipline – Jebel Jais Flight, or take an aerial tour of the mountains through the Jebel Jais Zipline Tour. For a more relaxed experience, you can enjoy a scenic drive up the 30km mountain road and have a cup of coffee or a bit to eat while taking in panoramic views at the Jebel Jais Viewing Deck Park.

A few other adventures planned to open on Jebel Jais this year includes five self-guided walks at the new Jebel Jais Hiking Trails, or you test your extreme survival techniques at the Bear Grylls Survival Training Academy.

Cultural Discoveries

Ras Al Khaimah's rich history and culture will also leave you spellbound. Dhayah Fort is the most visited archaeological site in the Emirate and is a prime example of heritage site conservation. This 16th century mud-brick fort is the only hilltop fort still existing in the UAE, and offers a fantastic view of the lush palm gardens, the sea and the dramatic mountain range. Or, tour the Suwaidi Pearl Farm to learn about the country's incredible history of pearling, as well as experiencing an oyster opening, pearl diving, kayaking, mangrove tour, and a traditional lunch cooked by Emirati women in the village.
 
For a more relaxed adventure, kayak through the mangroves and salt flats and try spotting a flock of flamingos, explore the desert on horseback or simply enjoy a falcon show.  

Ras Al Khaimah's variety of landscapes provide the perfect backdrop for any experience you're looking for. Find a new adventure every day, in Ras Al Khaimah.
