Oman Mountain & Beach Discovery Tour

Inspirational natural wonders holiday to Oman

A magical Oman vacation with your own private driver/guide, taking in majestic mountains and spectacular desert dunes and oases, before returning to Muscat for 6 nights at your beachfront hotel. A perfect blend of relaxation and guided touring around some of the 'must sees' of Oman. The Al Hajar mountains are your first stop, reached by some extensive off-road driving, for 3 nights 'on top of the world' at the Anantara Jabal Al Akhdar. In this rugged landscape, discover 400-year old Al Hamra village, walk through historic Nizwa with its ancient fort - the old capital of Oman, delve into Nizwa souq renowned for its ornamental silver jewellery, and experience Jebel Shams - the Grand Canyon of Oman. One day here is free for you to enjoy the immense sense of space.

Then it's time to head to Wahiba Sands, a vast undulating sea of dunes rising up to 200 meters and host to a variety of fauna and flora. Enroute, you'll have opportunities galore to stop for photographs, see quaint terraced farming villages and picturesque wadi's. Spend a night here in the desert, trying your hand at soft dune bashing or spotting oryx. Your journey then takes you back towards Muscat, visiting a dhow factory in the city of Sur, where artisans still hand-craft these boats using centuries-old techniques, followed by the scenic Wadi Arbeieen with its date palms and deep pools of water. At your luxurious hotel sanctuary, The Chedi, you'll have plenty of time to relax and reflect. However, we have included two days of tours to let you get a feel for this atmospheric, colourful city, as well as the culture of the coastal region, including the 300-year old Al Hazm castle at Rustaq and the hot springs at Nakhl. This is truly an Oman adventure that will stay with you forever.
