Your Destination —
Ras Al Khaimah is renowned for its pristine natural attractions, dramatic red mountains and lush agriculture. Here, eco-explorers can seek adventure in activities such as falconry, camel riding, hiking and trekking, wadi (desert) safaris, or simply meander along rivers on a traditional Arabic sail boat. One of the most physically-demanding and spectacular hikes in the UAE, Wadi Ghalilah, also known as Stairway to Heaven can be found in Ras Al Khaimah.
With a heritage rich with historical sites dating back to 5,000 BC, Ras Al Khaimah is an archaeologist’s playground with its numerous forts and abandoned villages. The former residence of the Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah, the fort is today home to the National Museum. Housing numerous collections of ancient pottery, fossils, shells and old coins, the museum is a must-visit for history buffs.
