Discover the true essence of Arabia, when your four-wheel drive leaves the bustling city of Dubai, heading towards Hatta. Visit Fossil Rock, a towering monolith in the desert named for the embedded fossils more than 80 million years old.
The silhouette of the rugged mountain range invites drivers to an off-road adventure through Hatta Mountain Conservation and its steep passes. The journey takes you through a wild landscape of dramatic canyons, deep gorges filled with natural spring water and rocky valleys.
The drive continues in the palm tree farm of Hatta and the Hatta old “downtown” where you will visit the dam from the top of the mountain. Next you’ll see the Heritage Village to visit the restored fort converted to a museum which provides fascinating historical information about the area.
You’ll then have lunch at the beautiful Hatta Fort Hotel, still overwhelmed and impressed by the incomparable landscape.
