Explore the Hajar Mountains

The huge, rugged range runs across the north of the UAE and into Oman

Explore the Hajar Mountains

You know all about the deserts and dunes that dominate the UAE landscape, but how about taking in the country’s  vast mountain range, too?

The Hajar Mountains are the largest in the Arabian Peninsula, bordering Oman and the UAE, and the rocky and rugged terrain provides a serious challenge for hiking enthusiasts.

You can also make the trip on four wheels rather than on your feet, by booking a full-day safari from Dubai, so you can discover the dramatic canyons and valleys of the nation’s highest mountain range.

Soak in the glorious solitude of the area, far removed from the hectic nature of big city life, before visiting the picturesque villages that lie in the shadow of the mountains.
From Dubai head east on the Al Ain road towards Oman.
