Norwich manager Chris Hughton hopes a warm-weather training break will help kickstart his side's Barclays Premier League campaign.
The Canaries laboured through a goalless home draw against Fulham on Saturday, which extended their unbeaten run to three league games but meant Hughton's side have now scored just once in the last six outings.
After their FA Cup run was halted by a shock 1-0 home defeat to non-league Luton, Norwich must wait a fortnight before they are back in action against Everton at Carrow Road.
Hughton intends to make the most of the club's four-day trip to Abu Dhabi.
"It has been difficult for us because Norfolk has been hit a bit heavier than most with the weather, when we have had quite a few days where we have struggled to get them onto the training pitch," he said.
"So we are looking forward to a good few days training on some decent surfaces."
The Norwich boss accepts there will be plenty to work on, most notably how to turn spells of possession into goalscoring opportunities.
"We have had periods of playing good attacking football and being solid at the back, as well as being open," said Hughton, who had guided his team to a superb 11-match unbeaten league run through from mid-October until just before Christmas.
"At the moment, we are certainly looking more solid as a team, but probably just lacking the flare qualities in that final third."
