Season Opener- Abadilah Canyon
A beautiful and easy hike that takes us across different vegetation and rock formations. We begin by descending man-made stairs into the canyon. Next we venture deeper into the canyon, often having to cross the water stream and ducking under thickets of trees and bushes. We will then ascend another rocky stairway to the other side of the mountain where we'll continue walking down the wadi. Ounce we hit the final section of the wadi, we'll turn back the same way to catch the sunset at a scenic point.
Hatta Copper Mountains
This hike is not too technical and is suitable for beginner hikers who are looking to jumpstart their adventurous souls; however, previous hiking experience is recommended since we will be bouldering and ridge walking. We will be ascending a steep, scree slope so moderate fitness levels and hiking shoes are recommended for maximum safety and comfort.
The trail begins into the wadi before we tackle our first climb with an elevation gain of 200 meters, this will surely get your heartbeat going. At the top, we will enjoy a beautiful, panoramic view of the Copper mountains.
DECEMBER 15 - 22
You know Grasp The Adventure loves taking you to hidden gems so we couldn't possibly end the year without offering the biggest hidden gem of them all... Socotra! This island off of Yemen is rightfully nicknamed the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean because of its rich biodiversity and the fact that it is home to 308 endemic plant species. We'll be exploring hidden caves, mixing in with the locals and understanding their culture, rejuvenating in oasis and swimming in crystal clear beaches all whilst camping every night in a breathtaking location under the starry night.
June 15 - 23
GRASPING MACHU PICCHU
Cusco’s numerous, natural wonders have made it on everyone’s bucket list during the last couple of years; and if they’re not on yours, they definitely should be! This is our most diverse trip and offers much more than hiking. The Inca Trail to Machu Picchu will take us through hundreds of years of history and culture while traversing through rivers and mountains lush with greenery. It doesn't end there, we'll also explore the ancient city of Cusco, spend time with lamas and alpacas, visit the famous Rainbow Mountains and most importantly, indulge in fine Peruvian cuisine.
GTA sparked a passion in me that is hard to describe, ever since the first adventure I joined, I've been boundlessly gravitated towards new heights.
Thank you GTA, for confronting us with greater spans of time.
GTA has nurtured a lovely community of adventure-seekers looking to escape the mundanity of everyday life. I have travelled with GTA within and out of the UAE, and the only thing that I find myself wanting is more. GTA is your go-to if you're looking to make memories, and friends, that will last a lifetime.
Simply, my best hiking experience I had is with this amazing group. I entered the community as a stranger, and now im proud to call the Grasp the Adventure crew my family. I'm currently counting down the days until the hikes resume back.
This business changed my idea of hiking from “hell no” to “hell yes” from one experience only. Seven months later I just finished my third hike with them and looking forward to many more (including international adventures). What else? Oh yes, their food is EPIC! Oh gosh, I’m drooling already,
