Trip to the Mountains
If you are looking for an authentic Emirati cultural and nature experience in an outstanding landscape, the trip to Hatta will satisfy and energise you simultaneously. Our skilled steward will pick you up from your hotel in our immaculate, air-conditioned 4*4 car to take you to the Hatta Mountains, far away from the bustling city life of Dubai. You first will drive through rugged mountain areas before arriving at Hatta Heritage Village nested between scattered springs and lush valleys in the Hajar Mountains.
Hatta Heritage Village, Bait Al Wali and Hatta Fort
Hatta Heritage Village has been preserved and reconstructed by the government to showcase rural living dating back centuries. You will get familiar with the life of ancient villagers who depended on the cultivation of palm trees and dates for their livelihood. Situated within the Heritage Village is the Bait Al Wali, one of the largest houses, where the ruler used to reside. Wander through its many rooms and courtyard before pausing at a shaded seating area. Discover the central Hatta Fort, built in 1896, and one of the most significant architectural structure in the UAE.
Hatta Honeybee Garden
While local heritage lives on through small farms within the village, protecting nature and wildlife is paramount for the Emirates with many bird and animal conservation areas. You can experience this at the Hatta Honeybee Garden where you step into the shoes and protective gear of a beekeeper.
Hatta Damn and Kayaking
After exploring Hatta Village by foot, you will get rewarded with fantastic and inspiring views on Hatta Damn. You can cool down in turquoise waters or simply relax on a Kajak or boat soaking in the atmosphere of the gracious mountain lake. After a memorable day your steward will take you back safely to your chosen drop-off destination.
