If you’ve not yet been to the nature-filled, northern emirate, here are three activities and events to try...
Ras Al Khaimah Zipline
The zip line is over the length of 28 football (soccer, for all our American readers) fields and is located on top of the Jebal Jais Mountain in Ras Al Khaimah. The must-see attraction features two lines, allowing friends and family to experience the journey together. The decline is a staggering 1,934 metres. If you’re suddenly feeling lightheaded, don’t worry. There's two stops. The first will spans across a length of 1,600 metres while the second will tackle the last 300 metres to the ground. The zip line can accommodate 250 people a day and is currently operated by Toro Verde, the masterminds behind the Adventure Park in Puerto Rico. Tickets start at AED650, click here to book yours.
