Uncover the region’s impressive landscape in the mountainous enclave of Hatta. After being picked up from your hotel at 08.00, we drive to Hatta Dam, and take a 20-minute boat trip across this scenic stretch of crystal water overlooked by steep terrain. Then, step back in time at Hatta Heritage Village and get a glimpse of what ancient Emirati villages would have looked like, complete with reconstructed residences, watchtowers, a fort, and a mosque. It may surprise you to know that Hatta is a prime spot for honey making, and at the Hatta Honey Bee Garden, you’ll be introduced to the resident beekeepers on a tour around the hives. Get a lesson in eco-friendly practices, taste different types of local honey, and pick up some souvenirs from the Bee Museum. A picturesque mountain drive takes you past the tranquil lakes and up close to Arabian oryx in their natural habitat. Your journey ends with lunch at a local farm before driving back to Dubai.
