With over 7,000 years of fascinating history, traditions and culture, Ras Al Khaimah promises an authentic and easily accessible Arabian experience.
A haven of year-round sunshine, the Emirate features pristine beaches, lush mangrove trees and terracotta dunes, as well as fertile, green oases and the dramatic, awe-inspiring vistas of the majestic Hajar mountains, including the UAE’s highest mountain peak – Jebel Jais – where temperatures are around 10 degrees lower than sea level.
ADVENTURE & LEISURE
Visitors can explore endless dunes via horseback or camel, then settle into an desert camp such as Sonara, where experiences include entertainment and dining beneath star-filled skies.
There’s more than desert here, and the coastline of this Emirate provides opportunities to unwind on white-sand beaches or to plunge into the sea to paddle board or swim.
Elevated experiences can include activities at Jebel Jais, the tallest peak in the U.A.E. Often referred to as the Middle East’s nexus of adventure, activities here range from Jais Flight (the world’s longest zip line ride) to Jais Sky Tour, which involves six separate breathtaking zip lines covering a 3.1-mile distance.
If your clients rather stay a little closer to the ground, they can try Jais Sledder, which ranks as the longest toboggan ride in the region. Cultural activities include a visit to Suwaidi Pearls cultured pearl farm, and historic sites such as Al Jazeera Al Hamra and Dhayah Fort.
These locations are all on UNESCO’s tentative list of World Heritage sites. The Emirate is also home to a number of award-winning golfing options, including Al Hamra Golf Club, where play is backdropped by expansive views of the Arabian Gulf and Hajar mountain range.
