Combine dramatic desert scenery with 16th-century history on a day trip by 4x4 jeep! After leaving Dubai, travel east to Hajar Heritage Village in the scenic mountains of Al-Hajar near Oman. Explore the well-preserved village that dates to the 16th century, seeing mud-walled mosques and houses, and then travel through the arid and open desert plains of the United Arab Emirates. Stop for a packed lunch on route, and visit the rock formations of Jebel Maleihah (fossil rock) and Camel Rock, before returning to Dubai.

Start your day with a pickup by 4x4 jeep from your Dubai hotel, and then travel east through the UAE’S sultry desert landscape. Heading toward the Omani border, your destination of the day is Hatta, a sheikdom and ancient trading enclave high up in the Al-Hajar mountains. Relax as you watch the terrain change from the pristine streets of Dubai to the soft-red dunes of the desert and rocky mountain passes of Al-Hajar.

After roughly two hours, arrive in Hajar and stop to explore its 16th-century highlight: Hajar Heritage Village. With your guide, walk around the village’s mosques, watchtowers and houses while hearing how such buildings were made from materials such as mud, reed and stone. See Hatta Fort, and learn about daily village life for the Hatta people many centuries ago.

Having enjoyed 1.5 hours walking around the village, stroll back to your 4X4 jeep to travel deeper into the desert. Stop for a packed lunch of a burger and soda along the way, and then continue traveling to Jebel Maleihah, a site known locally as ‘fossil rock.’ Look for marine fossils — imprints of ocean life millions of years ago when water covered Arabia — on a stroll around the rocky desert outcrop, and then continue to nearby Camel Rock in Fujairah. The otherworldly rock formation makes for a dramatic photo set against the backdrop of undulating dunes and sandstone buttes.

Continue your journey back to Dubai, taking in more sweeping expanses of desert, and then finish your day trip with a drop-off at your hotel in the early evening.
