Cherish the past to embrace the future
The Women’s Heritage Walk from Al Ain to Abu Dhabi is an annual trek honoring the women of the United Arab Emirates who helped shape the nation. They made this desert journey twice a year not so long ago. Today, expatriate women accompany Emirati ladies as they retrace the footsteps of their ancestors. Now in its fourth year, this experience is an observation of the past and an invitation to shape a vibrant future.
Challenge yourself with this life changing trek and experience the remarkable cultural diversity and sisterhood of the Women’s Heritage Walk.

“I am so honored to have walked such a historical journey. Although time erased the ancestors’ footprints in the sand, we are following the footprints engraved in the hearts of this incredible nation. Thank you to the Emiratis who welcomed me into such a personal part of their history and heritage, and thank you to the Women’s Heritage Walk team for this amazing experience. Never to be forgotten!”Celeste Strydom Evans
