About OutdoorUAE

Established in 2009 and driven by Daniel Birkhofer “Mr Outdoor” who is now focusing on consulting – www.bbm-consult.com. OutdoorUAE magazine is a unique publication and the only one of its kind in the Middle East. Along with its online counterpart www.outdooruae.com, we support and cover adventures, pursuits, and activities of the vast outdoor community. Other than that we also showcase events, people, services, operators, products, listings, locations, and destinations not only to the UAE and across the Middle East, but also to the world.




Here at OutdoorUAE, we belive we are different – it’s not a business it’s a labor of love. We are much more than just a publication. Thinking outside the box, we take that extra step to get involved with the outdoor community and our target audience whilst building the connecting bridge between the community and the industry. Our content covers entry to expert level stories and is always based on first hand, credible experience. Our stories feature inspirational, thought-provoking and informative adventures. Combining these with practical and technical stories on how to start off or improve various adventure pursuits, we at OutdoorUAE pride ourselves as being the sole, reputable chroniclers of the UAE and GCC outdoor community.

Our expanse of authors, photographers, and experts guarantee that readers will have to be inspired as they browse through page upon page of stories that are honest and focused. Till date we published more than 2500 articles from several hundred writers. Apart from our pool of regular authors we also invite the outdoor community to share with us their experiences as one time submission; this keeps us closer to the community that we want to influence. All these guarantees that each issue of the magazine contains, fresh perspectives from the continuously growing outdoor community.

We constantly try to extend our offers and services to the community for example; our first guide book, the Dubai Off-Road and Adventure Show….
