Ras Al Khaimah Holidays

A desert delight in the shadow of the Hajar Mountains

Incorporating Dubai’s extravagance, Ras Al Khaimah is a great starting point for a coastal or desert adventure

Ras Al Khaimah is located to the north of Dubai close to Oman’s Musandam Peninsula and guarded by the Al Hajar Mountains. It enjoys a slower pace of life compared to its larger counterparts Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Although not quite as extravagant, in no way does Ras Al Khaimah scrimp on luxury and for those wanting to experience the bright lights of the city, Dubai is only an hour’s drive away.

The Al Wadi desert is the best place for some romantic seclusion since stargazing is spectacular thanks to the lack of light pollution. In the desert learn about the Bedouin culture and the intricacies of the beautiful art of falconry or even archery. Dune bashing is an exhilarating way to explore the sandy environment, although possibly not for the faint-hearted. Observe the gazelles, camels and oryxes that wander past your window against a backdrop of the towering Al Hajar Mountains.

Famed for golf courses and desert activities there will never be a dull moment when you stay in Ras Al Khaimah. Thanks to its varied landscape ranging from sandy beaches, hot deserts, dramatic mountains and verdant oases there is a sporting activity suited for everyone.

Our Difference

The Far & Wild Community...

We think that the best people to talk about an experience are those directly linked to it. Our website and brochures let the ‘real experts’ show their stuff… local experts, travellers & industry insiders. Look out for the coloured markers all around the site... they mean that you are reading something contributed directly by a person from one of these different parts of the community we are part of.

The best memories aren’t simply places and hotels, they are made up of experiences and people… that’s why our focus is on using our community to make your holiday COME TO LIFE.
