Hiking and Trekking
Experience the best of the region with a visit to the agricultural village of Al Ayn, and the picturesque abandoned village of Wadi Bani Habib. Gaze across spectacular scenery of terraced farms and valleys, and follow trails through the wadi and farmlands growing walnut trees and pomegranate bushes.

Cave Adventure Via Ferrata
Not for the fainthearted, this adventure dares you to step out onto 20-metre-high ropes and traverse a cave mouth - a thrilling experience you will never forget!

Introduction to Via Ferrata
Don't miss the opportunity to try a slightly more challenging walk that incorporates a section of Via Ferrata (Italian for 'iron path'). Following a short safety briefing, get into your harness and head to the start point, a short walk just beyond the resort and over the stile. The Via Ferrata starts just below the ridge and takes you along the mountain face and down a fairly steep section of rock.

Introduction to Via Ferrata with Trek
Once through the Via Ferrata, follow the path steadily down into the wadi, passing some of the most spectacular mountain scenery to the village of AlKhutaymi, hidden in a cave in the wadi floor. Continue another 15 minutes to discover the best swimming pool in the Green Mountain, where you can enjoy a refreshing dip before hiking back.

Butterfly Trail
The chance to discover a little history, find a few fossils, and spot butterflies and birds… Alila Jabal Akhdar’s Butterfly Trail offers an adventure for children that they, and their parents, just can’t resist!
With scavenger map in hand, young explorers will be taken on a journey of discovery, learning new facts about the mountain and its inhabitants, and engaging in an array of fun activities along the way. Just pick up the butterfly trail markers outside the lobby. You can enjoy an almost 3 km walk without leaving the resort. On your expedition, look out for geological markers of the rising and falling of seas, and see the results of how the slow but persistent push of the continents has shaped the beautiful vistas of the Green Mountain.
Free guided tours at 04:00 pm on Wednesday, Friday & Sunday (confirm your spot with reception)
