UAE Trekkers has been the most active outdoor hiking group in both Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Al Ain, since 2011. Our philosophy is to get to the mountains to hike, canyon, climb, cave, and explore as much as we can on the weekends and holidays.
We are exclusively a mountains based trekking group, though we do offer similar adventures such as climbing, caving, canyoning, and mountaineering.
We are a community oriented and inclusive group. We offer events for families as well as people from all nationalities, cultures, and occupations. All of our events are fee -based for a simple reason - when you are asked to pay for something, you take it seriously. People are more likely to read the entire event description before deciding if a hike is really right for them, as well as make the effort to come prepared if they have to pay for it.
UAE Trekkers FZE is a fully licensed and legal company in UAE because it is not legal to charge people for anything in the UAE if you are not licensed to do so. We are in fact the only outdoor activity group to have policies in place that make each and every event clear, safe, fair, and legal for everyone. This includes a fair and clear refund policy for all of our events.
Fitness on all of our events is critical. We will offer beginner hikes, but even for these, you do need to be participating in regular fitness activities. But if you are the type of person that enjoys being outside, chances are indoor fitness classes bore you to tears. We offer training that is tailored to the activities that we do in the mountains. All of our training is listed on the meetup site UAE Trekker Training.
Gear is a big issue for many people that have just moved to UAE. To give people such as new arrivals and new to the outdoors sorts a chance to get out into the wilderness of Oman and UAE without having to spend a fortune on camping gear, UAE Trekkers has a good supply of tents, sleeping bags, camping mats, and cookout kit that we loan on a sign up first come first serve basis.
There are reasons why we have been and continue to be successful, and many of these are the 3,000+ very interesting, active, sporty and diverse people that are a part of the group.
When you join you may think that you're just up for the easy stuff, you will be surprised how easy it is to get hooked into the sport of trekking and mountaineering, especially in this part of the world, when so many great opportunities are literally a short plane ride away.
We're not travel agents and we're not professional mountain guides. But we do have the experience of having done every trip that we offer which has given us the chance to refine it so that its an organized and enjoyable experience for everyone.
Whether you wish to take the opportunity to pursue a goal of climbing mountains or just disconnect from civilization, you will have the experience of a lifetime with us.
