Full Day 4X4 Mountain Safari Trip from Dubai
US$ 129.44
Overview
The UAE’s east coast couldn’t be more different from Dubai: with rugged mountains, canyons, and fishing villages along its shores. This full-day 4x4 tour lets you discover this scenic region with ease, without having to arrange independent transport. Explore off the beaten track and visit archaeological relics, river gorges, and more; all with a guide for commentary. A picnic lunch and hotel pickup and drop-off make the day complete.
What to Expect

You will depart in the early morning from your central Dubai hotel by and air-conditioned 4x4 vehicle. Your knowledgeable and experienced guide will show you points of interest as you head out of the city, along the desert highways to the Mleiha Archaeological Center. You will walk through the fascinating and interactive exhibition to learn about life in the area thousands of years ago.

Departing Mleiha, you will head to the highest mountain range in the eastern Arabian Peninsula, the Hajar Mountains. The journey continues on through the Masafi Canyons where you will be able to see dwellings and local points of interest. A stop will be made for a picnic lunch in the wadis and canyons. Afterward, the tour will switch gears to the coastal town of Al Aqah and the United Arab Emirates’ smallest and oldest mosque, the historic Bidiyah mosque, dating back to the 15th century. Here you can stop to take photos and admire the views.  

Before departing back to Dubai, there will be a brief stop at the little town of Masafi, where there is a daily market, known as the "Friday Market."  Here, browse local craft stalls selling pottery, incense burners, carpets and fresh produce of locally grown vegetables and fruits.
