The emirate continues to diversify its adventure-focused range of experiences

Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) has partnered with Manar Mall to launch RAK Airventure, the emirate’s first hot-air balloon ride.

Proving yet another opportunity for DMCs to sell RAK’s outdoor experiences, the hot-air balloon accommodates two adults and rises to a height of 30 metres, offering 360-degree views of Ras Al Khaimah’s beaches, deserts, mangroves and mountains. 

Priced at AED 75 for a 10-minute ride, RAK Airventure is set to attract local, regional, and international guests.
