Burn some rubber at Yas Marina Circuit
While thousands watch the action at the Formula 1™ races every year, how many people actually make it onto the track? Nurture your racing instincts with an authentic track experience at Yas Marina Circuit. There are several cars to choose from including the high-octane F3000s or sophisticated Aston Martins.

Soar through the sky on a thrilling seaplane flight
You’ll start your journey from the waters of Yas Marina on this unique experience where you’ll fly from the water high into the air. You’ll be surprised at how different the city looks from the sky on our luxury Abu Dhabi seaplane flight. Soar past iconic landmarks such as the Emirates Palace Hotel and stunning Abu Dhabi Corniche. The beautiful mangrove forests of Yas Island, the fascinating Port Khalifa, and the waterways that separate Abu Dhabi’s islands are stunning when viewed from the sky.
Set sail with The Yellow Boats
These bright yellow boats are hard to miss on the waters surrounding Abu Dhabi. Get nautical and explore Abu Dhabi’s main corniche and surrounding islets from the sea. You’ll get to jet past Emirates Palace Hotel and even see Lulu Island depending on the tour you choose. There are several options to suit all tastes including a high speed thrill ride.
Get carried away in a hot air balloon
While you will need to get up very early (around 4am), for many the pain is worth it because you’ll get to catch the sun rising over the desert. As you gently glide through the air in the hot air balloon you’ll see camels and gazelles roaming across the sands. After your flight you’ll be treated to a delicious traditional breakfast at a Bedouin camp before returning back to the city. Note these tours are in Dubai.
Go back in time on a camel trek
Embrace Arabic traditions and go camel trekking in Abu Dhabi’s desert. Camels have been highly prized by the Bedouin people for centuries. While they used to be crucial for food and transport, today they’re most famous for their prowess on the racetrack. Most tours will include return road transfers and refreshments.
