As the winter months come around, the weather in the UAE turns beautiful. If you’re the  adventure kind, it’s the perfect season for off-road drives & hikes in the natural beauty of the  country. Many families also pack a picnic or bring out their barbecue grill to enjoy the pleasant  outdoors. If you're looking for a destination for your next weekend plan, we’ve got you covered.

1. Jebel Jais

UAE’s highest peak, Jebel Jais, is part of the impressive Hajar mountains. Located in the  eastern regions of Ras Al Khaimah, the mountains reach a towering height of 1934 m above  sea level. Go to Jebel Jais for the breathtaking views and beautiful sunsets over the mountains.  It offers a lot in terms of activities as well. It boasts the longest Zipline in the world for people  who like adventure. The mountain also offers trekking & hike trails and there are designated  areas where you can camp out and enjoy a night beneath the stars.

2. Wadi Shawka

Wadi Shawka is also in Ras Al-Khaimah and is a great option for an exploration hike. You can

see natural springs, mountains and even greenery during winters. It can be a challenging route  but is worth it for the picturesque mountain vistas and the gorgeous views.

It makes for a great off-roading experience. The valleys, hills, rocks & springs make for an  adventurous drive. With open trails, you can drive uninterrupted into the sunset.

3. Hatta Mountains

Barely a two-hour drive from Dubai, Hatta is a good choice for a weekend getaway. In winter, it  is the go-to spot for hiking, biking, and kayaking in the teal blue waters.

Situated in the midst of the rugged Hajjar Mountains, adventure-seekers often visit Hatta for off road adventures through the mountains, canyons and to the beautiful Hatta Rock pool. For  people looking to have a more chill weekend, Hatta also features an authentic Arabic “heritage  village” and an ancient Juma mosque.
