Magical kayaking experience at Louvre Abu Dhabi

Start your journey by strapping into your kayak, donning your life jacket, and taking up your paddle. You'll be guided by an expert who'll provide a wealth of information about the museum, its architectural features, and its history. As you paddle out onto the water, you'll find yourself gazing at the breathtakingly beautiful artificial sky created by the metallic structure of the Louvre's iconic dome. This pioneering design by Ateliers Jean Nouvel, a renowned French architect, makes the museum look like a sparkling night sky full of stars - the view is more mesmerizing when seen from the water.

Aesthetic wonders and Instagram-able views

As you paddle through the calm waters, drawing closer to the museum's outdoor installations, notice the art pieces, strategically placed around the museum's surroundings. The play of light and shadow on the sculptures, enhanced by the reflections on the water's surface, creates a stunning display. As you navigate the serene waters around Saadiyat Island, the fantastic views of the Louvre Abu Dhabi are perfect for those seeking to satisfy their aesthetic senses or those hunting for striking additions to their Instagram profile.
