  • Day 1: Jebel Shams Tour

    Stop At: Nizwa Fort Oman, Nizwa Oman
    In the very heart of Oman lies Nizwa, the country's bastion of heritage and tradition. A visit to the formidable fort is the ideal opportunity to learn about the Sultanate's rich culture and history. Following a visit to the fort, visitors can spend time in the adjacent traditional market, sampling local produce and specialties like 'Halwa" (a traditional dish made from dates).
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Misfat al Abriyyin, Misfat al Abriyyin, Ad-Dakhiliyah Governorate
    To truly understand how life, not only survives, but flourishes in the harsh and arid climate of Oman, a visit to Misfat Al Abriyyin is an absolute must! Half way up a steep mountain, the eden-esque village overflows with dates, bananas and pomegranates, fed continuously by a traditional irrigation system rumored to be hundreds of years old.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Jebel Shams, Al Hamra Oman
    Dominating the surrounding landscape, the mountain of the sun (as it is called in arabic) is the tallest mountain in Oman at 3000 meters above sea level. Its breathtaking canyon, known as the Grand Canyon of Oman, cuts through the monumental slopes in a spectacular display of natures raw power.
    Duration: 2 hours

    Meals included:
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Sama Heights Resort or Similar (as per availability).

    Day 2: Desert Tour

    Stop At: Wadi Bani Khalid, Road 23 apprx. 40 km from Bidiyyah Muscat-Sur Road, Muscat 113 Oman
    Marvel at one of Oman's most scenic wadi's, where orchards and plantations surround rivers and lakes that flow throughout the year. Swim in refreshing pools with pure and clean water from the mountains in the background, and laugh at the clumsy antics of the frogs.

    (Please note that, given the conservative nature of the local people, appropriate swim wear must be worn. We recommend that guests bring an old shirt and shorts to wear over their swimming costumes, to avoid offending the local people.)
    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Wahiba Sands, Wahiba Sands, Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate
    Stand amidst a sea of sand and breathe the desert in. The Wahiba Sands are extremely beautiful, both visually and spiritually. Understand why explorers like Wilfred Thesiger fell in love with it, and the proud people who call it home. The sands give room for the mind to wander and the soul to rest.
    Duration: 3 hours

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Dinner
    Accommodation included: Sama Al Wasil Camp or Similar (as per availability).

    Day 3: Coastal Tour

    Stop At: Sur, Sur, Ash-Sharqiyah Governorate
    To understand the Omani people, its crucial to peek into their history. Visiting the boat yards in Sur sparks the imagination, conjuring images of Oman's past maritime empire that stretched from East Africa to the Indian subcontinent. See artisans practice traditional boat making techniques that are still in high demand today, and admire the elegant designs of Dhows. All this against the back drop of Sur, with its coastal forts, immense lagoon, and charming residents.
    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Wadi Shab, 50km West of Sur, Sur 411 Oman
    Wadi Shab is nature's very own water park. A narrow wadi with water all year round, a path snakes up the wadi, passing pools, streams and the occasional water fall, up to a deceitful dead end. For those with a sense of adventure, a small crack in the shape of a keyhole permits visitors to swim through the large boulder that seemingly blocks the end of the wadi. Once through the keyhole, guests will be astounded at the beauty of the waterfall hidden within a cave.

    (Please note that the water-pools that lead through the keyhole are very deep, and as such visitors who wish to go to the end of the wadi must be competent swimmers, otherwise there is a risk of drowning. Less confident swimmers can go to the pool just before the keyhole without needed to swim through deep pools.)
    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Bimmah Sinkhole, Hawiyat Najm Park, Muscat Oman
    The last stop before heading back to Muscat is the Bimmah Sinkhole. The local people used to marvel at this remarkable little water-hole, and speculate that it was formed from a meteor striking the earth. More recently however, geologist have determined that it was formed when an underwater cave collapsed at a point where sea water and fresh water meet. Either way, it makes for a last dip before the journey home.
