Enchanting Oman

12 days from £3470 per person

Oman remains one of the most beautiful and unexplored parts of the Middle East. This is a land of traditional covered souks, towering mountains and beautiful coastal scenery combined with a distinct and proudly maintained culture. Start your journey in Muscat before heading into Oman’s mountainous interior. A region famed for its military architecture, visit the castles at Jabrin and Bahla before continuing onto the historic town of Nizwa and the remarkable desert sand dunes of the Wahiba Sands. End your time relaxing by the coast outside of Muscat.

Route: Muscat – Hail al Shas – Wahiba Sands – Ras Al-Jinz – Muscat

Itinerary Highlights

Muscat is a fantastic city to explore, with its calming atmosphere, waterside location and rich history that bounces between the city’s attractive uniformed buildings.

Home to some of the country’s most impressive forts, the Al Hajar Mountains is an area of magnificent natural beauty and mighty mountain peaks.

Wahiba Sands is an expanse of desert terrain in eastern Oman, occupied by Bedouin tribes. Its endless dunes nevertheless contain an extraordinary variety of animals and plants.

Oman Holiday Review

We are now back in the UK, having enjoyed a wonderful trip to Oman. The itinerary worked out very well and the scenery in Oman was stunning.  We thoroughly enjoyed all the interesting places we visited. Our driver/guide – Mohammed – made the trip exceptional. Mohammed was calm, kind, helpful, informative, spoke very good English and was a joy to be with. Many thanks again to yourself, for putting together our itinerary at quite short notice – it was really great trip.
