Time Out Abu Dhabi tries whitewater rafting in Al Ain

Join us as we make a splash at Wadi Adventure

It’s that time of year when we could all do with a bit of cooling off.

Well, the Time Out Abu Dhabi team decided to take a little road trip to do exactly that for this week’s vlog, which you can watch above.

We headed to Al Ain, where we spent the day hitting the rapids at Wadi Adventure – one of the biggest outdoors attractions around, and home to an incredible whitewater rafting course.

There we met up with our friends and colleagues at Time Out Dubai to bring you an essential guide to the splashtastic fun.

With some minor bumps along the way – and one truly magnificent moment where one or two of the team became a bit too well acquainted with the water – the team undertook of the toughest water challenges the emirate has to offer.

There’s also tonnes more cool stuff to do at the adventure park, including an aerial assault course, a 200-metre-long zipline, and a huge log swing that drops you from ten metres up in the air.

Every week we try to bring you the coolest things to do, see and eat in Abu Dhabi in our vlogs, so subscribe to our YouTube channel here.
