Aerial adventures

From floating above the desert dunes in a hot air balloon to an exhilarating zip line across a marina, these unforgettable experiences let you see the UAE from a truly unique perspective.

SEE THE SIGHTS. Soar above some of the country’s most iconic landmarks and enjoy unforgettable views with a relaxing seaplane flight. Seawings offers aerial tours and packages to destinations throughout the UAE, providing a comfortable vantage point from which to admire architectural wonders and attractions such as Abu Dhabi Corniche, Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque and Palm Jumeirah. 

NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED. Experience a breathtaking freefall through the skies of Dubai above the iconic Palm Jumeirah or over the Arabian desert with Skydive Dubai. Offering tandem skydives at two world-renowned locations, you’ll reach a speed of 190 kilometres an hour before an expert instructor gently guides you to the ground. You’ll even be provided with photos and a video to relive the experience and share it with family and friends.

ON TOP OF THE WORLD. Scale new heights by heading to the observation deck of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. Offering sensational views of the emirate, you’ll be able to spot some of the city’s most famous landmarks, from Dubai Creek all the way to Palm Jumeirah. With viewing decks on levels 124 and 125, as well as the premium SKY experience on level 148, At the Top is a memorable experience no matter what time of the day you visit. Though being there for sunrise or sunset is guaranteed to make the trip even more special. 

ENJOY THE RIDE. Embrace your inner daredevil and hold on tight as you tear through the air on one of the steepest and fastest zip lines in the world. XLine Dubai Marina starts at a height of 170 metres and sees you reach speeds of up to 80 kilometres an hour as you fly over land and water. Providing some truly mesmerising views of the marina, complete with luxurious yachts and stunning skyscrapers, you’ll also receive customised videos and photos of the thrilling ride courtesy of a helmet mounted camera.

FLOATING ON AIR. There are few ways to better experience the seemingly endless desert dunes in Dubai than with a serene hot air balloon ride. With Balloon Adventures you will be able to float peacefully at 3,000 feet and watch the sun illuminate the golden sand, while herds of indigenous animals roam below. You’ll also be treated to a one-of-a-kind encounter, with a majestic falcon launched from the basket of the balloon. 

TAKE TO THE SKIES. For an experience that will make you feel like a true VIP, nothing quite compares to exploring Dubai by helicopter. Helidubai offers tour packages, ranging from a 12-minute flight showcasing many of the emirate’s most remarkable attractions, to an extensive 40-minute tour that allows you to relax and see all the city has to offer. Available as private and shared tours, enjoy exceptional panoramic views of Dubai’s astonishing landmarks.
