Sunrise Desert Dune Hike outskirts of Abu Dhabi

Kick off the season of desert dune hiking in Wathba. We will do a 3 hour trek starting at sunrise. Its even a little chilly out here in the morning, bring a sweatshirt! 

We will do a desert trek in the Wathba area (45 minutes out of abu dhabi) in the remote dunes.  We will have an off road car following us if you need support for our trek.  

Transport provided for the first 10 people to sign up and pay. 
Last minute joiners will need to secure transportation in a carpool. 

Breakfast, water, snacks and car support is included.  We will be in a remote area though its not so far from Abu Dhabi.

This will be the first hike of our Desert Dune Trek series happening throughout the season. 

Cost: 250 dh
Early bird price:  200 DH  
including transportation to and from the start, breakfast, coffee, water, snacks, and car support throughout the hike. 

If you choose to drive yourself, that's totally fine, but you will still pay the same as others who are taking the transportation.  

Pick up points: 
Abu Dhabi: Carrefour Airport Road 5:30 am
Arrival to the start of hike:  600 am
Breakfast will be upon arrival in the dunes. You will hike to the breakfast spot will take about an hour. We will safari style breakfast for around 45 min, then hike back before the sun hits and makes it too hot for our mere existence. 

Where is the hike?

This hike is just off the Abu Dhabi Al Ain Highway,  Easy to find, no need for an off road car either.

How difficult is the hike?

The hike is 3 hours through the dunes. ,

How fit do I need to be?

WE will provide car support, if anyone has a hard time finishing the hike they can ride in the car. 

What do I need to have?
Trekking shoes are always required as the risk of ankle turning and foot pain is high for those that are not used to hiking. 

You can easily rent a TREK SET:  Trekking shoes,  desert  gaitors to keep the sand out, and backpack and camelback with required water for 150 dh. These can be ordered and paid in cash upon arrival. 

Other than that, you will also need an alarm clock.
