You must have heard a lot about UAE and the unique tourist attractions it has to offer. Among all these famous and unique attractions Dubai contributes a lot to the attract tourists in UAE. Dubai is not a destination for anyone, but this mysterious city is undoubtedly a unique metropolis and a perfect choice for travelers looking for new adventures.

The famous qualities that make Dubai an amusement park are what make this city in the United Arab Emirates a fashionable destination. With this in mind, we find unique experiences that you can only live in Dubai, a city characterized by luxury, its lively nightlife and an ultra-modern atmosphere for all tastes.

But in Dubai, you can make many other excursions that unite the adventure together, and in the majority you will stay with your mouth open. We list some of the activities that explain what to do in Dubai, by land, sea and by air.

Adventure Activities in Dubai

1. Skydiving in Dubai


Try it by booking a helicopter ride or a seaplane ride. It is one of the best things to do in Dubai, because it gives us amazing views from the air and the possibility of taking spectacular photos. You have the choice between four tours depending on the duration of the flight: Dubai Odyssey Tour with 40 minutes, Dubai Vision Tour with 22 minutes, Dubai The Palm Tour with 17 minutes and Dubai Iconic Tour with 12 minutes.

All flights depart from the helipad located next to the Dubai Police Academy. It is another adventure to do in Dubai from the air, and if I had to choose between seaplane or helicopter, I would keep the seaplane. One of the reasons is that its cruising speeds are 320 km per hour and 200 km per hour respectively, which allows in the case of the seaplane to fly over the most important places to visit in Dubai.

Another reason is that its offer of destinations is greater, we have the Dubai Contrast Hydroplane offer, to see the city of Dubai in a single day with two complete excursions from the air and by road, 25-minute flights through Dubai and Abu Dhabi and 45-minute flights touring the city of Dubai from Dubai Creek and Dubai Palm Jebel Ali.

If you plan to visit the theme parks of Ferrari World or Yas Waterworld you can do it from Dubai by seaplane, including tickets and return by road to your hotel in Dubai.

It is now possible in Dubai, to experience the sensation of floating! At Inflight Dubai, in the largest and tallest wind tunnel in the world, enjoy the sensation of weightlessness or also called zero gravity.

2. Dubai Drums: Full Moon Drumming


Make music in the desert under the full moon with Dubai Drums, an experience that combines the tribal rhythm of the drums with a relaxed and family-friendly environment, in which everyone can participate. For the most skeptical, it is proven that playing group music releases endorphins and is an excellent example of an ancestral activity that we can enjoy today.

3. Hot Air Ballooning in Dubai


It is your activity if you want to see the sunrise from the Emirati desert enjoying unforgettable views of the sunrise. During this trip you will have the opportunity to see the contrast between the reddish color of its dunes and the green of the oasis, as well as its fauna. An unforgettable experience!

4. Burj Khalifa: Tallest Building in the World


Do you want to challenge your fear of heights? So Burj Khalifa is for you. If you are afraid of heights, it is best that you stay away from Burj Khalifa but if you want to challenge them, head to the 65-meter long conveyor belt that shows you the history of Dubai, before climbing up to the 124th floor to observe the city skyline from an impressive height.

To climb to the top of the skyscraper you will have to book a Sky Experience, which takes you to the highest outdoor observatory in the world, on the 148th floor, where interactive experiences of the areas surrounding the Emirate are included.

5. Dubai Gold Souk: All that Glitters is Gold


Let yourself be dazzled by the shine of the Golden Souk. Have you ever looked around and thought, this is very nice, but it would be even better if it were gold? If you are a lover of this precious metal (and even if you are not), do not miss visiting the Dubai Gold Souk, the perfect place to buy not only gold, but also diamonds and other types of top-notch jewelry.

Even if you are not very supportive of ostentation, it is worthwhile to shop around this market and haggle with local vendors to take a good souvenir of your trip. It is open every day from 10:00 am to 10:00 pm, except Fridays, when it opens at 4:00 pm.

6. Desert Camping in Dubai


It is one of the places that visitors do not want to leave the United Arab Emirates without visiting, and the color of the sand and the dunes they form is different depending on the Emirate we are visiting. You can visit light red Abu Dhabi for having a minimum concentration of iron oxide, to creamy Ajman for its white coral sediments.

You can see red Dubai for having more iron oxide than in Abu Dhabi, in black Fujairah for the sand that comes of the erosion of its mountains, in Ras Al Khaimah, mostly white in quartz, in reddish Sharjah, pulling brown for its mixture of iron and lead sulfide, and in blue Umm al-Qaiwain, which is given by iron when it is not it's rusty.

The deserts of Dubai plays an important role in the adventure activities in Dubai and tourist attractions in Dubai. But what are the reason behind the high rated attractions? The reason is I guess the number of unique activities that a desert safari has to offer. It consists of crossing the imposing dunes mounted on spectacular 4×4 cars, until arriving at a Bedouin tourist camp for a dinner with tanoura show and belly dance.

Desert safari can be done at any time of the day but I guess the best time to do it is in the evening. Bonus point of doing desert safari in the evening is that you get to see the sunset in the desert also. Sunset is a very beautiful part of nature whether it is on the country side or on the desert. Dune bashing is another kind of thrilling activity here during the desert safari.

You get to experience the sand dunes of desert at a very high speed. Camels are the most friendliest creatures that can be found in a desert.

Camel rides are best on the soft red sand dunes. For those looking for stimulating experiences, the Dubai desert is their destination. Be it a private dinner at Arabian Adventures among the dunes in which couples discover wildlife and hidden desert stories, morning excursions, dinner with authentic Emirati food under a blanket of stars or magical hot air balloon adventures, while enjoying of silence over an endless ocean of dunes.

7. Dubai Aquarium: Nothing with Sharks


Live strong emotions swimming among sharks. You don't need to get on a boat and go to the open sea. The Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo offers an experience with sharks in the middle of the city. Safe, inside a diving cage, visitors can witness sharks being fed a few centimeters away. This 30-minute experience also includes a tour of the aquarium facilities and the possibility of feeding shark pups. Of course, it is not an adventure suitable for heart.

8. Ski Dubai: Indoor Ski Slope in the Desert


Skiing in the middle of the desert? In Dubai, it is possible! Are you discouraged going to Dubai because of the heat it is? Do not worry! Ski Dubai is located in the Mall of the Emirates, the largest shopping center in the city. Change the desert dunes for a winter landscape created for the whole family and enjoy the pleasure of skiing without leaving a fortune and without planning a vacation to a ski resort.

To complete this peculiar experience of skiing in Dubai, you can book a visit to meet the penguins that leave their enclosure a few times a day.

9. Dubai Chillout Ice Lounge: Enjoy a Cocktail Below Zero


Cool off in an ice bar. After skiing, do not take off your coat and visit the first lounge bar at a temperature below zero in the Middle East, Chill Out Dubai. At a more than refreshing temperature of -6 ° C you may want to warm up with a hot chocolate than to have an ice cream cocktail, but it is certainly an unforgettable experience for all travelers.

10. Dubai Formula 1: Experience Speed


Visit Abu Dhabi and enjoy the speed. Yes, we know that Abu Dhabi is a totally different city, but it is only
90 minutes away by car. This trip will be only to get warm, because one of the things that stand out of Abu Dhabi is speed. After a few days in the Arab Emirates you have surely seen a few Maserati at full speed through the streets of the city.

Join the motor enthusiasts at Yas Marina, a circuit with a wonderful design that has been the scene of the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

11. Ziplining in Dubai


In Dubai there are also options for those who are looking for fun and taking the child inside, sliding down the longest urban zip line in the world or, for the more daring, the tandem zip lines of the XLine Dubai Marina. For the more adventurous, in the mountainous enclave of Hatta they can practice high intensity activities such as mountain biking, climbing, kayaking or hiking.

  4. I was stopping over at Dubai last winter and had a little experience at the airport. We traveled to Madrid via Emirate Air and it has shown us so many interesting places to visit in Dubai. With your post, I am more certain to make a trip to Dubai, especially I wanted so much to experience the desert camping in Dubai. I hope the weather is not that cold at night. I love camel riding as I have done one in Xinjiang China. Love it to the max and wanted to do it again as the camel is so tame and cute.
