Day by Day Itinerary
Day 1 Dubai: Settle In
Upon your arrival into Dubai International Airport, you’ll be welcomed by our assistant at the arrival gate to ensure a smooth and quick transition, assisted through immigration, airport security and the fast track counter. From there, you’ll take private transfer to your hotel in Dubai. The second largest of the seven United Arab Emirates is known for its ever-changing landscape that reflects the city’s competition with itself to constantly construct bigger and better, with Burj Khalifa currently the world’s tallest building, soaring over 2,722 feet into the always bright blue skies. Enjoy the rest of the day to relax and settle in.
Day 2 Dubai: Hot-Air Balloon Ride + Land Rover Safari
Enjoy an unforgettable adventure early this morning, heading up in a hot-air balloon at sunrise, enjoying a bird’s-eye view over the endless sand dunes. Making it even more magical, you’ll fly with trained falcons, and after landing enjoy a sumptuous breakfast that includes items like caviar and hand-cut smoked salmon. From here embark on a wildlife safari in a luxurious open-air 1950s Land Rover, watching for gazelles, Arabian oryx and more. In the afternoon, you’ll hop in a 4X4 vehicle for a thrilling dune drive, a roller-coaster ride through the dunes, complete with a photo stop in the desert.
Day 3 Dubai: Indoor Snow Park + Dubai Tour
Snow is pretty much unheard in the UAE where temperatures frequently soar to over 120 degrees Fahrenheit, but there is snow inside at the world’s largest indoor snow park. In this chilly environment you can enjoy tobogganing down snow-covered hills, bobsled runs, a snow cavern with interactive experiences, and more. Afterwards, embark on a tour of Dubai with your driver/guide that’s direct by you. Just tell the driver where you want to go. We suggest heading to the top of Burj Khalifa to take in an incredible 360-degree view after whizzing up 33 feet per second on one of the world’s fastest elevators.
Day 4 Dubai: Water Park Adventure
Enjoy a full day of fun at the Middle East’s biggest water theme park. Aquaventure features 30 waterslides and includes some iconic record-breaking rides that are sure to get your heart pounding along with a private beach, tropical landscapes, and rivers. There are interconnected waterways to float around in, and big thrills like The Leap of Faith, sending riders through a transparent tunnel that races through a shark-and ray-filled lagoon. You can even swim safely with the sharks and hand-feed the friendly stingrays, while the region’s biggest family play structure features 10 slides, water jets, dumping buckets and more to keep little ones happy.
Day 5 Al Ain: Abu Dhabi Tour
This morning your private driver/guide will bring you on a full-day tour of the UAE’s capital city, Abu Dhabi. It begins at Yas Island where you can capture photos of Ferrari World before getting a looked a life in the city with a drive along the Corniche. Continue to a living exhibit, the Heritage Village where you can witness authentic life in the desert in a traditional oasis village before enjoying award-winning cuisine at Emirates Palace for lunch. A tour of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque with its majestic architecture follows before ending your day with private transfer to Al Ain.
Day 6 Al Ain: Day of Leisure
You’ll have the day to yourself to enjoy a variety of activities in the Garden City of Al Ain, known for its natural springs and palm groves. Take advantage of the many offerings at your resort, embark on a camel ride or head to the Air Park at Wadi Adventure to zipline, rock climb, or ride a giant swing over the lakes. Its water park offers kayaking, surfing, rafting and wakeboarding. Delve into culture by visiting Al Qattara souk where you can see local artisans weaving beautiful rugs or spinning away at a potter’s wheel and explore history at the 1891 Al Jahili Fort.
