RAK has everything you need to unwind and indulge in outdoor activities after a busy work week, here’s some weekend inspo!

Here are five things to do in Ras Al Khaimah this weekend:

5. Hike the Jebel Jais Mountain

The weather in the UAE is currently still bearable during the day at around 30ºc, which might just be a first in May!

One way to make the most of the weather and the free time you have this weekend, is to visit the Jebel Jais Mountain – which is the highest peak in the UAE.

You’ll get breathtaking panoramic view of the Arabian Gulf and you can get there by car, bike, or hiking.

For the adventure seekers, hiking is the best option to explore the natural beauty of the mountain. The hike starts from the base camp, which is located 25km from the city center. The hike takes about 3-4 hours to complete, and the trail is well marked. The cost for the hike is free, but you can rent hiking gear to help you through it.

If you prefer taking in the nature from the comfort of your car, then that’s an option too! There’s a restaurant at the top of the mountain you can get some good food and good views..

3. Explore the Jazirat Al Hamra Ghost Village

The village has gone viral on social media because of its spooky vibes!

The Jazirat Al Hamra Ghost Town is an abandoned village that dates back to the 19th century. The village was once a bustling pearl fishing and trading hub, but it was abandoned in the 1960s. Today the village is a popular tourist attraction, and visitors can explore the abandoned houses and buildings. The village is almost 20km from the city centre and is free to enter!
