06 Must Try Outdoor Adventures in Dubai – A Destination that also Caters to Daredevils!

World class shopping, iconic architectural marvels and classy hotels define Dubai; it is also a desert oasis, which offers all the thrills and exotic adventures of an expedition into the Middle East.


Start with Skydiving

This is tipped to be the ultimate outdoor thrill in Dubai. Of course, nothing can beat the heart-thumping adrenaline rush of jumping out of a moving plane from a height of 12,000 feet. There are some pretty awesome skydiving schools, run by licensed instructors who will be more than happy to indulge your fancy and even take you on an initial jump. The jump will not merely feed the daredevil in you; it will also be your best views of Dubai and the coastline.



A pretty hip sport in Dubai is sand boarding; head over to the desert and you can enjoy this fun sport which lets you skim down the giant sand dunes. Quite an adrenaline rush, sand boarding lets you tackle the many dunes of Dubai's desert. While you're at it, enjoy the magnificent views made up of stunning landscapes; some of the best in the UAE.


Desert Safari

Enjoy some fast-paced dune bashing, by taking on a 4X4 desert safari. You will love the adrenaline rush of racing across the huge dunes and spotting the exotic wildlife. Desert safaris are organised by many Dubai properties, and guests at AVANI Deira Dubai Hotel will find this tour on offer. Staying around the Deira area too will be quite an experience as there are plenty of things to do in Deira, Dubai, ranging from a dhow cruise on the Dubai Creek to enjoying a day at the Al Mamzar Beach Park; here you can make the best of the gorgeous sunny weather.


Sea Kayaking

The Arabian Peninsula is just right for a sea kayaking adventure; you will find the tour utterly blissful as nothing but the sound of your paddle breaks the silence. There are plenty of popular areas to explore via a sea kayak, so do go ahead and book one for the adventure of a lifetime.


Wakeboarding or Kitesurfing

Water sports are extremely popular around the Umm Suqiem area of Dubai. Sitting in the shade of the famous sail-shaped building, this area of coastline is most popular for kitesurfing and wakeboarding. You can easily hire equipment from close-by and even hook up with instructors for lessons if you are a novice hankering for a spot of adventure.


Mountain Biking

The Hajar Mountains located to the East of Dubai, are not made up of soft sand dunes, instead, you are treated to rustic boulder strewn mountainous trails, which hard-core bikers simply cannot resist. Wadi beds, narrow trails and animal paths are yours to master, as you test your mountain biking skills to the limit. Hook up with a popular trail operator and you can enjoy over 70kms of craggy mountainous trail. The sights are pretty wild too; you will spot desert snakes, lizards, mountain goats and wild donkeys. Enjoy!
