Day 2: Muscat (B)

Today you visit the 5th largest mosque in the World, The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque. Built by Sultan on the occasion of the 25th anniversary of his accession. It displays impressive art work, a 14 meter long Svarowski chandelier and a single piece carpet, covering the whole prayer hall for men. After that, pass by the diplomatic quarter and visit the oldest and largest market in the country, Muttrah Souq. You can shop for Souvenirs here. Walk through the narrow alleys of this market place where it is filled with the smell of Frankincense and sandalwood. Next stop is the Al Alam Palace where the Sultan receives his state guests. The Palace is flanked by two Portuguese fortresses, Al Jalali (1578) to the right and Al Mirani (1581) to the left. Next, you will visit the museum to witness traditional artifacts and traces of history of Muscat. Finally, watch Muscat from a boat cruise while sipping you Omani Khawa.

(Suitable clothing required for the mosque visit) Overnight: Muscat


Day 03: Coast, Wadis and Turtles (B)

What separates Oman from other Gulf destinations is its diverse geography and nature. We start the day with a leisurely hike through the twin wadis of Shab and Tiwi. There is a possibility for swimming during the day so prepare some change of clothes! Next you will pass by Bimmah Sinkhole with its azure salt water pool. Proceed to the Fishing town of Sur, the home of Omani traditional Dhows. You will visit the Dhow factory in the open air Museum. At night, an extraordinary experience awaits you at the turtle beach where you will get the opportunity to witness Sea turtles coming to the shore and lay eggs.

Overnight: Turtle Beach Resort


Day 04: Sand and Stones - Wadi Bani Khalid (B,  D)

We embark on a stunning coastal drive this morning before reaching Wadi Bani Khalid where water flows all year around. This most loved wadi of the country features large pools of turquoise and emerald colored water, lined with lush green palm trees inviting you to jump in to refresh. And for the main attraction of the day, you traverse through the Sand dunes of the vast Wahiba desert. The stay at the authentic desert camp, with local cuisine and entertainment is an experience everyone will enjoy.

Overnight at Al Wasil Camp


Day 05:  The Green Mountain - Nizwa (B, L, D)

 Get in your 4WD and drive towards the nearby town of Ibra. The old town, with its retro atmosphere is worth visiting. The drive now takes you to Jebel Akhdar, literally the ‘Green Mountain’ and the home of Omani rosewater. It is considered as one of the most fertile places inland with different species of fruits and flowers blooming. From Saiq plateau, enjoy the perfect view of the terraces. Your guide will show you the Diana’s point, named after the Princess of Wales whose helicopter landed at that spot. As per time permits, walk around the mountain village. Just at the foot of the mountain is the Birkat Al Mauz, which is a magical place during Sunset. Stroll through the deserted ruins of the village, surrounded by dates and Falaj, the ancient irrigation system that is now a UNESCO heritage site. Continue to Nizwa for the overnight stay.

Overnight at Nizwa Hotel apartment


Day 06: Nizwa (B,D)

Explore the cultural capital, Nizwa today. Since it is a Friday, you have the opportunity to watch the business at the animal market where the herders bring their cattle to be auctioned once a week. Just as you thought you are done with the shopping at the Muttrah souq, you will be equally tempted by the Nizwa souq as well! Next visit is to the National monument, Nizwa Fort. Ion your way to Al Hamra, you will come across the Jabreen Castle, which is a UNESCO site and Bahla fort where we just stop on the way for a few pictures. The village women of Al Hamra will demonstrate the old practices such as milling, coloring, cooking and more. To the west of Al Hamra lies the road winding up Jebel Shams, the ‘Mountain of the Sun’. It is the highest mountain of the Arabic world and reaches 3075 meters above sea level. The drive up to the mountain is adventurous and on the way you pass the old village Ghul with its green terrace fields. Once you reach the top of the mountain, the exhilarating view of the ‘Omani Grand Canyon’ awaits you. Enjoy the breathtaking view before you check in at your mountain resort.

Overnight at Jebel Shams Resort


Day 07 Wadi Bani Awf - Muscat (B)

You will get up early today for a picturesque walk to the old village of As Sab on top of the mountain. On the way to Muscat by the rugged route, stop at the charming village of Bilad Sayt, followed by one of the most exhilarating off-road ride through Wadi Bani Awf. Visit the hot springs of Nakhl and stroll around its fort before heading towards Muscat, where the unforgettable journey ends. Thanks for visiting Oman.
