Top 10 Group Activities in Dubai

Dubai is a fascinating city with much to offer both corporate events and incentive groups. From high-end hotels and penthouse bars to desert landscapes and golf courses, the range of group activities in Dubai mean you’ll never get bored.

Effective Travel Solutions work with the best local suppliers in the U.A.E. to ensure our group and incentive programmes offer your guests an unforgettable experience.
Here are our Top 10 group activities in Dubai:

1. Dune-bashing (pictured)

Combine stunning scenery with adrenaline fueled action as you head out on across the sand dunes in a 4×4. If you’re brave enough (and have your driving licence) you can take to the wheel yourself!

2. Get an Aerial view

See the famous Palm in all it’s glory from your own private Helicopters or Seaplanes, take a short trip over the city or make a day of it and use air transfers to take you to/from Abu Dhabi!

3. Shopping

Dubai Mall is a wonder in itself; take a trip round the aquarium, gaze at the indoor waterfalls and pick up a few designer treats! At the other end of the shopping spectrum are the markets, head over to Souk Madinat for more traditional Emirati gifts (and a huge variety of restaurants) or down to the spice markets to experience ‘Old Dubai’.

4. Sunset dinner in the desert

Exclusive dune areas can be transformed into stunning banquet spaces whatever your group size. Traditional rugs and cushions can be brought in for drinks at sunset too.

5. Sky Diving

For adrenaline-seekers this is another great way to get a good view of The Palm – sky dive over it!

6. Spa relaxation

Famed for it’s high-end hotels and resorts, Dubai has also become one of the world’s top spa destinations. A great way to unwind post event!

7. Be a ‘HOG’ for the day

The Harley Owners Group of Dubai will pick your group up with their ‘fleet’ of incredible Harley Davidson motorbikes, cruise down the highway as a transfer between venues or take a longer trip out sightseeing!

8. Boat-Life

Take a short trip across Dubai Creek in an authentic Abra (the best way to get to the Spice and Gold markets) or hire a traditional Dhow boat for an evening dinner cruise.

9. Formula 1 Thrills

Ok so not technically in Dubai, but just an hour away by road (or quicker by air!) is Abu Dhabi’s famous Yas Marina F1 circuit. Tours and track days can be arranged as well as helicopter and seaplane aerial trips over Yas Island.

10. Cocktails with a view

As you may have guessed from it’s skyline, Dubai is spoilt for choice when it comes to dining with a view. Many buildings and hotels have devoted their top floors to sumptuous bars and sophisticated restaurants.

Whilst these are some of our favourites there are also many more group activities in Dubai; Camel Polo, Golf and Watersports to name just a few.
