Abu dhabi stopover

A Stopover Like No Other

Having made history as the first Middle East port in the event’s 37-year history, Abu Dhabi has pledged to make its two-week stop-over a stand-out home port experience.

With its warm winter climate, pristine beaches and sparkling blue waters, Abu Dhabi has the natural credentials for anyone looking to book a sun-kissed New Year’s away.

Couple this with a fortnight-long, emirate-wide hosting of the Volvo Ocean Race - from headline concerts with international superstars and interactive race villages for the whole family to great holiday packages across Abu Dhabi’s plethora of luxury resorts – and it will most certainly be a trip to remember.

And it is not just the wealth of celebratory activities taking place - including welcoming ceremony, in-port racing, city receptions and top-class concerts and entertainment – that is set to make this a holiday like no other. It is the celebration of rich history meeting modern excitement that will leave lasting impressions.

So chart a course for your perfect New Year and push the boat out in Abu Dhabi.
