What our specialists say...

An itinerary incorporating two of Oman's most striking coastal areas with the very different climes of the interior. The trip combines culture, a range of activities and some top class accommodation. In Muscat you can enjoy the sights of the White City and relax by the Indian Ocean, before heading inland to explore the forts and wadis around Nizwa. After returning to Muscat, it's on to the mountainous terrain of the Northern Peninsula, dotted with Norwegian style fjords. For watersports enthusiasts, there is excellent snorkelling and diving in the beautifully clear waters of the jagged creeks.

We recommend this trip for:

  • Muscat
  • Nizwa
  • Muscat
  • Musandam
