The Middle East’s best-kept secret, Oman combines unspoiled desert landscapes with a chance to experience authentic Arabian culture. Stable and international in its outlook, Oman has none of the ostentation of its sister states. Instead, you’ll find pristine beaches, golden deserts and mountain scenery, as well as traditional villages where goats roam freely through the narrow streets. Our specialists visit regularly so they can tailor your holiday to Oman to your interests.

Modern Muscat has avoided over-development and remains refreshingly low-rise, despite its endless white-sand beaches. Beyond the capital, you’ll find ancient tombs, stately forts and hidden wadis in the Jebel Akhdar Mountains. In the traditional city of Nizwa, you can visit the Friday livestock market, where goats, camels and cows are paraded for sale. Explore the Wahiba Sands in a 4x4 and then watch the sun slowly set, unfurling a blanket of stars across the endless night sky.
