Encounter With Nature

UAE's Northern Mountains & Indian Ocean - Experience 2 Countries, 3 Terrains

This unique excursion offers an all-day opportunity to get up close and personal with the stark natural beauty of UAE’s east coast. From dizzying heights of the Hajjar Mountains to the cool depths of a coastal cruise, your memories will be unforgettable. Start the adventure with an early morning drive east towards the Musandam Peninsula. Continue to rugged Wadi Bih, dubbed the Grand Canyon of UAE, for an impressive look at the stony, jagged peaks rising more than a thousand meters high. Take a Picnic Breakfast overlooking a nearby dam before climbing through unpaved, twisting trails to reach the highest point. Soak in the magnificent vistas of quaint stone houses snuggled between jagged folds of the mountains. Make a refreshment stop before driving to Dibba fishing village. Embark a traditional wooden Dhow sailing north along the picturesque coastline. Enjoy a refreshing welcome drink whilst exploring the craggy coast. The Dhow lazily cruises the languid waters of the Arabian Gulf, reaching a secluded anchorage. Here you try snorkeling, swimming and kayaking. A local lunch comprising regional and Asian items is served aboard followed by more cruising to visit a nearby cave to admire the natural formation. Later a leisurely sail returns you to the harbor for a pleasant drive back.
