  • Go for gold: If you’re inspired by the Rio action, enjoy kayaking at the venue.

    Whether you want to try out exciting water sport activities or just fancy a day on the beach, you will not be short of options for entertainment at Wadi Adventure Al Ain.

    Since opening their doors at the beginning of 2012, the venue has become one of the top attractions in the UAE, drawing in thousands of visitors each year.

    And if you want to see for yourself why it’s highly rated, it’s still business as usual with the park open throughout summer.

    “Wadi Adventure Al Ain is the Middle East’s first and only manmade whitewater rafting, kayaking, surfing and wakeboarding facility that caters to both local and international water sport athletes alongside the general public of the UAE,” said Nilesh Mistry, general manager at Wadi Adventure Al Ain.

    “With it nestled in Green Mubazzarah with the backdrop of the iconic Jebel Hafeet Mountains, it makes the ultimate outdoor activity spot young and old.”

    It’s a place where you will be spoilt for options.

    If you’ve been inspired by the Olympics, you can try out kayaking with a number of water channels that will give you a challenge.

    If you fancy a bit of surfing, you can do exactly that. In the region’s largest surf pool, you can book lessons with qualified instructors or just have fun on the waves.

    Fun for all ages: Wadi Adventure is the ideal spot for a family day out.
