Full of adrenaline at Hatta Wadi Hub. Its fifth season opens its doors in September with a completely new adventure rope circuit, in which both children and adults are invited to try. You can also practice archery, zip lines, axe throwing, paragliding, horseback riding and off-road on electric scooters. From flying in a hot air balloon to exploring the dunes, there's plenty for active travelers in Dubai.
Wild Wadi is the most synonymous with Dubai. Opened in the late 90s, the park surprised the world with how crazy, ridiculous and incredibly exciting a water park can be. More than 20 years later, it's still Dubai's main theme park, with death-defying slides, wave pools that cause tsunamis, surf simulators and everything in between. On a hot day, there's nothing better than the Wadi.
If there's one thing that stays the same, despite the constant changes in Dubai's urban landscape, it's the exciting culture of walking the dunes. A short drive from the emirate's capital are the majestic red sand dunes of Dubai. This picturesque landscape is ideal for high-octane off-road driving. Every day, intrepid all-terrain vehicles go out into the dunes to accelerate and descend at full speed over incredible sand hills.
As a jeep flies over a dune, at an angle of almost 45 degrees, red sand swarms on its sides. No other activity fully combines the energy of Dubai with the pristine beauty of its incredible landscapes. And what better way to end an unforgettable experience than watching the sun set over the city in the distance? Your Jumeirah private concierge or butler will be happy to arrange a trip for you. The Dubai coastline has miles and miles of white sand and blue sea, and there's no better way to make the most of it than through the exciting world of water sports.
Take advantage of the early hours of the morning and cruise the sea with a paddleboard, or make the most of the calm waters and cruise along the coast on water skis, while the iconic Dubai skyline goes by at full speed. From kayaking to scuba diving, Dubai's water sports scene has it all. With the vertical dives and Hollywood themes of Motiongate, the enchanting box office shows in Bollywood parks and the wonderful creations of Legoland Dubai and Legoland Water Parks, you could spend weeks enjoying everything that Dubai's parks have to offer. Add in the paradise of stores and the picturesque beauty of Riverland, and you have enough to keep you busy for longer.
Hatta is Dubai's pristine outdoor area and is absolutely perfect for the off-season. Its rocky mountain harbors are incredible for cycling and hiking, while Lake Hatta is probably the most beautiful place in the United Arab Emirates for kayaking, surrounded by rugged red rock cliffs. You can also explore the historic town of Hatta, recently restored to bring Dubai's traditional culture to life.
