Luxurious, modern, innovative: Abu Dhabi embodies much of what Formula 1 is all about, making it the perfect host for the final race of the season, and you can be there to experience it all.
With challenging bend upon challenging bend, the Yas Marina Circuit makes for a truly spectacular setting for the season's climax.
We've based our hosted tour at the contemporary Conrad property, but Black Opal can tailor an itinerary to suit you - whether you want to stay in the W Abu Dhabi itself, the hotel around which the track snakes, or you choose to retreat just slightly further from the action - luxury hotels are abundant in Abu Dhabi so we're confident we'll find a place perfect for you.
What's more, late November is an excellent time to visit the Gulf state, with balmy temperatures making a welcome relief from the oncoming winter back in the UK. Why not make a week or two to enjoy the sunshine and enjoy the destination's modern delights such as Ferrari World; the world's largest indoor amusement park.

There’s also historic F1 cars on show over the weekend to admire and don’t forget that your ticket also includes access to the Yasalam After-Race Concerts, featuring international artists, so you can enjoy the atmosphere into the night.
We head back to Yas Marina Circuit for Qualifying Day, where you can revel in exciting race action from a standard seat in the South Grandstand with your 3-Day F1 ticket. Take in incredible sweeping views of cars approaching the newly modified Turn 9 at over 300km per hour. Watch as the bravest drivers battle it out side-by-side as they enter the new 18m wide hairpin, before winding their way around the glittering Yas Marina and disappearing under the illuminated W Hotel.
The highlight of our trip as we enjoy the final Race Day at the Yas Marina Circuit. Your seats will offer great views of cars approaching and taking the newly modified Turn 9, as well as the run-off area and views of the support pit garages located in the Marina Grandstand.
