Journey to Abu Dhabi’s tallest peak, Jebel Hafit in Al Ain, for a hike, then enjoy a host of exciting watersports at nearby Wadi Adventure and, finally, top things off with a dose of speed at the Al Ain Raceway, with its 1.6km go-karting track.

Jebel Hafit

Stop 1

Jebel Hafit, Al Ain

Recommended Time: 3 hours

For incredible sunrise and sunset photos, as well as majestic views of Abu Dhabi’s lush garden city of Al Ain, head to the top of Jebel Hafit mountain. Rising to a height of 1,249 metres, this skyline-dominating peak is Abu Dhabi’s highest, and the UAE’s second tallest. Reach the summit of this rocky mountain by car, motorbike or, if you have the stamina, bicycle. 

Standing guard over Al Ain and the borders of Oman, this craggy limestone behemoth has been weathered over millennia, with significant fossil discoveries made in the area being vital pieces in the jigsaw that makes up the city’s ancient history. 

Once described by edmunds.com (the automotive information online source) as being “among the world’s greatest driving roads”, once you’ve reached the top and soaked up the breathtaking views, you can head over to the nearby Mercure Grand Jebel Hafeet Al Ain Hotel for a meal.
