Embark on outdoor adventures, from trekking up to the 1,934-metre high summit of Jebel Jais, the UAE’s tallest peak, to exploring the new Observation Deck and ziplining down again. Catch a falcon show at the Ritz Carlton Al Wadi Desert Resort and Spa or spend an Alladin-esque night by a roaring campfire at the Bedouin Oasis Desert Camp, where 4X4 dune bashing, henna hand drawings and belly dancing are par for the course.
Immerse yourself in Arabian culture and heritage. Stroll through the Old Town souks, offering textiles, handicrafts, herbs and spices at bargain prices. Unearth hundreds of years of history at the 16th century Dhaya Fort or visit the National Museum to peek into Ras Al Khaimah’s colourful past.
Sample Middle Eastern cuisine such as Samboosa Khudhar, Beryani Laham and Khoboz Wagafi or traditional hummus, grilled halloumi, fattoush and falafel like you've never tasted before.
Escape the rat race for stargazing in the UAE's darkest spot or pampering in an outdoor mountain spa using indigenous products and traditional techniques.
Discover what Sustainable Development is really about. RAKTDA is sponsoring the UNWTO's International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development as part of their commitment to protect and enhance Ras Al Khaimah's cultural heritage through local projects, education, investment and working with the private and public sectors.
