There is a perception of Dubai that it’s flat, and just beaches and towers, but Hatta is a true oasis, says Pete Aldwinckle

Hatta’s mountain ranges, wadis, farms, dams, and dramatic landscapes have long made it one of Dubai’s hidden tourism gems. Now, a number of new nature and adventure-based activities are bringing it to the fore of the emirate’s tourism pursuits – as highlighted by a recent visit by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai.

Once development has been completed in the coming months, visitors to Hatta will be able to take part in a range of activities, from hiking to mountain biking, kayaking to axe throwing and archery, and even a human slingshot at the new Wadi Hub attraction.
