Ski Dubai

Skiing with penguins? Really? It sounds bizarre doesn’t it. Skiing or snowboarding in the desert is difficult to comprehend on its own. But doing it in the company of penguins elevates the levels of improbability.

Dubai has always done things different from the rest, and the Ski Dubai attraction is just the latest version of showcasing what can be possible. The winter wonderland brings snow to the desert while a large enclosure provides the habitat for a range of king and gentoo penguins, the second and third largest penguin sub species.

These penguins are free to waddle through their vast home, including an open deck and private holding area. You’re practically guaranteed to see them when you visit Ski Dubai, although there’s more intimate views when you book the Penguin Encounter.
