How Dubai makes adventure possible?


While it is true that Dubai is a city of splendor, what makes it unique is its adventure side. With the sun shining all year round and an interesting combination of both the beach and the desert, Dubai vacation packages can be actually quite exciting. With so many outdoor activities in the city, your Dubai tour can be just the perfect setting for adventure lovers. Be it speed-boating across the Arabian Gulf or roaring along the racing circuits, skydiving, zip-lining or a swim with the sharks; Dubai is a package deal for those who love excitement and adventure.




If flying has always been your thing and you aren’t someone who has the fear of the heights, the skydiving experience over the Palm Jumeirah islands can well be an out-of-the-world experience, quite literally. The expert skydiving facilities along with spectacular aerial views, Dubai makes skydiving not just adventurous but truly surreal. The skydiving experts offer training prior to the experience, which involves jumping off a plane at a height of 4,000 meters above the sea level. For the well-trained and experienced skydivers, solo jumping is allowed while for others, there is a tandem dive. The experience includes a minute of freefall followed by a 5-minute of slow descent. The stunning sight of the Dubai landscape with the Burj Khalifa, the World Islands, the Palm Jumeirah and the exotic desert landscape is sure to leave you mesmerized.


Cycling across the Al Qudra


The Al Qudra cycling track is a heaven for cycling enthusiasts. As there are limited cycling opportunities within the city, the Al Qudra track is a respite for those who love this sport. This 80-kms stretch of cycling track runs along the Al Qudra road for about 20 km and will then take you through the pristine desert landscapes. The cycling track will take you through mountains of sand on both sides and you are most likely to run into a wild horse or an Oryx.


The ultimate Dubai desert safari


It would be no exaggeration to state that your Dubai tour will remain incomplete if your Dubai vacation package does not include a trip to the Dubai desert Safari. This extremely popular outdoor activity in the city has stunned many visitors with its dune bashing, came riding and many other such activities that are unique to Emirati or Bedouin life. The trip to the desert concludes with a delicious Arabic buffet alongside entertaining belly dancing.


Deep sea fishing


As mentioned above, Dubai has a unique combination of beaches and desert. The city is just as famous for deep sea fishing as the desert safari. Given the strict fishing regulations in the city, the Persian Gulf has large schools of some very rare fish species. Most deep sea fishing experiences involve the catch and release method of fishing and you will be accompanied by expert anglers as you head off the coast of Dubai, 20-30 km into the sea. If you wish to bring your catch back, the maximum allowed is 15 kg or 6 large fishes.


  Dubai Autodrome


The luxurious life of Dubai includes a lot of sports cars and that being said, racing is quite a popular outdoor activity here. The Dubai Autodrome allows you to experience driving a sports car on a dedicated race track. Some of the cars that you can drive here are Audi TT, Audi R8, McLaren MP4-12C, and the likes. Prior to your driving session, you will be given expert training on car handling and there are some restraints on possession of a valid international driving license in order to experience this activity.

Apart from the above mentioned, there is also the sand-boarding, fly-boarding, mountain biking, hot air ballooning and snorkeling that you can experience in Dubai.


There is no denying the fact that a Dubai tour is known for its glitz, glamor and shopping. However, with the above adventure packed activities, the Emirate is also being considered now as a complete holiday destination with your family or friends.
