The emirate offers average temperatures ranging from 18°C to 25°C (64°F to 77°F), which is a perfect condition for enjoying outdoor activities.

Desert Excursions On Christmas
In many cases, to embrace the experience of the holiday atmosphere, many excursions end up with gatherings around bonfires, bonding, and trying out traditional Arabic delicacies. Not so typical of Christmas, eh?
It is though, here’s why. Christmas is all about gatherings, sharing stories, meeting old friends and relatives, or just spending more delicate time with the close ones. In the end, we are gathered to embrace the coming of the New Year, in other words: the fresh start. To summarize, Christmas is all about bonding and eating.
The Emirate version of this holiday celebration is a breakthrough from the ordinary Christmas celebrations, which while remaining our beloved timing, sometimes need to be a little bit spiced up.
Christmas is the time of the year when everyone believes in some sort of miracle, be it the deepest wish or just the festive atmosphere doing its magic. Festive garlands and lights, Christmas-themed songs, delicious drinks and meals, everything is magical about this holiday, even the environment and the people surrounding us during these days.
And to make it even more magical, the Emirate RAK offers thousands of possibilities that are ensured to make your stay pleasing and memorable.
Moreover, the safari excursions into the desert provide a distinctive fusion of holiday cheer and cultural richness for those looking for a genuinely non-traditional celebration. A picture of Christmas that transcends the ordinary is created by the gentle glow of the setting sun on the dunes and traditional Arabic entertainment held beneath the stars.
And with that, Ras Al Khaimah embraces Christmas with open arms, making your stay a pleasurable experience with a hint of a fresh and magical start.
