With over 7,000 years of fascinating history and culture and magnificent landscapes, Ras Al Khaimah – once known as Julfar and the northern-most emirate in the United Arab Emirates – is a relaxing, engaging and reinvigorating getaway. From breath-taking coastlines, lush mangrove forests, rich, undulating terracotta desert to the country’s highest peak – Jebel Jais – where temperatures are around 10 degrees lower than the UAE, the pristine emirate of Ras Al Khaimah offers up a host of activities for all interests and all ages. Visitors can enjoy watersports, family beach activities and waterfront golf, explore the mangrove forests by kayak, with their hidden cache of bird and marine life, or opt for an adventurous desert safari tackling huge dunes. Outdoor enthusiasts can also try camel or horse-back riding, adrenalin-packed hiking, trekking, cycling and ziplining across the craggy cravines of Jebel Jais, which rises to just short of 2,000 metres above sea level.
