Explore the UAE, Oman and beyond

Escape is a boutique trekking and outdoor lifestyle business giving small groups tailored and exhilarating experiences in the UAE and Oman's outdoors. We look after all the details so you can concentrate on the experience.

The UAE and neighbouring Oman offer many different wonderful landscapes to explore; from wide open desert, to stunning mountains, and fertile wadis. We offer trips, walks and camps with our qualified and experienced guides, and have adventures for every appetite, from the most experienced, to families with smaller children. Our trips range from standard packages to bespoke experiences, for families, groups of friends or corporate clients. We know the best spots in and around the UAE, how to get there (and back) safely, and what to take.

WOMEN'S HERITAGE WALK UAE

We are just back from guiding over 60 ladies on a trek of a lifetime.

The 6th Women’s Heritage Walk (WHW) was a five-day, 120 km cultural trek from Abu Dhabi to Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. WHW was a life-affirming experience taking women over the age of 18 on a journey through history, connecting them to the heritage and culture of the UAE, and helping them forge deeper connections to themselves and each other through physical, mental, and emotional development. WHW has established itself as a unique and popular addition to the events calendar of the UAE, and this year over 60 women from a diverse range of backgrounds participated in the Walk with the support of each other and a passionate team of trainers and organizers.


SHEPHERDS IN THE DESERT

We were delighted to organise this authentic and seasonal show in the pristine desert with a Springbok BBQ in our traditional Bedouin camp.

AN EXCITING WEEKEND EXPLORING A BEAUTIFUL WADI IN OMAN

We were delighted to work with The Abu Dhabi chapter of the ENHG to offer members a fabulous family opportunity to come and learn whilst exploring a typical Wadi of the region.  This trip included an overnight stay in a beautiful and remote hostel with close access to several wadis.  Our guides taught families about the flora, fauna, geology and eco system of the area.

AMERICAN WOMEN'S NETWORK DESERT WALK

The perfect walk in the dunes with  sunset yoga session and hot drinks and snacks on traditional carpets.
