Day Wise Itinerary

Welcome Dinner In Nizwa

Touchdown Muscat!

You’ll be greeted by our representative at the airport.

Then, get ready for a 2 hour drive past picturesque mountainscapes as we make our way to Nizwa.

Once the capital of Oman, this ancient town is surrounded by a thick cover of palm trees and is also home to the country’s highest mountain peaks. Check into your hotel and unwind.

In the afternoon: it’s time to explore the  streets of Nizwa! The places that we’ll visit include: the Nizwa Fort, a massive 17th century castle with a unique drum-like tower and the famous Nizwa Souk, where you can shop for some beautiful handicraft items, Omani silverware and a range of trinkets to bring back as souvenirs.

Later: a gala welcome dinner at the hotel ! Tonight’s festive atmosphere is the perfect time to get to know and bond with your crew.

NIZWA 101 + Grand Canyon Of Arabia

This morning, pack your bags for an adventure - it's time to visit Wadi Ghul (a.k.a. the Grand Canyon of Arabia)! 

We’ll drive up to Jebel Shams, Oman’s highest mountain peak, which provides a spectacular view of Wadi Ghul, an abandoned village with deep ravines and vast, barren and rugged landscapes. 

Today, we'll camp in the heart of the desert, enjoying Bedouin hospitality, the view of the golden sand dunes and the desert wilderness. You can also enjoy dune bashing, camel rides and other exciting activities at the Dunes By Arabian Oryx resort!

Shopping Like A Local In Seeb

This morning, we'll check out from our camp and head back to Muscat.

En-route: Seeb. If you're looking to get a feel of local Omani culture, then this fishing coastal city is the place to be! We'll be visiting the old souk here. We'll be exploring this huge, sandy-coloured complex of buildings, where locals sell everything from fresh local produce and spices to gold, jewellery and pretty souvenirs. Recommended : if you're someone who loves grilled meat, then you have to try the Mushtaq (mishkak). A grilled lamb skewers dish that's prepared by marinating overnight, this delicious street food dish is on top of our list.

Also, while at Seeb, don't forget to check out the Naseem Garden- this is where traditional Omani weddings usually happen. And if you're lucky, you might get to see one.

In the evening: it's time to check into your hotel in Muscat and unwind.

Muscat 101

After breakfast, explore Muscat (the capital city) with an expert guide.

The places that we may  visit  include: the Royal Opera House (houses Omani architecture at its contemporary best), the Bait Al Zubair Museum (has an extensive collection of traditional Omani dresses, art, ancient weapons and heirlooms spanning many centuries) and the strange and beautiful Riyam monument, shaped like an incense burner.
Optional: Time for some dolphin watching! Head to the Marina Bander Al Rowda, where we’ll board a boat to watch these beautiful creatures in motion (Note: This tour is optional and will be at an additional cost (approx USD 50))

In the evening: we’ll end the day shop at Muttrah Souk, famous for its textiles and handicraft items.

Coastal Drive: Muscat - Sur - Muscat + Farewell Dinner

After breakfast, get ready for an exciting day as we go for a coast drive!

First up : the Bimmah sinkhole, arguably one of the most beautiful sinkholes in the world. Locals believe that it was created by a falling star (although geological proof says otherwise). But looking at the clear, turquoise blue waters, you can’t help but give in to the legend.

Then: the gorgeous Fin's beach. With white, sandy and pebble-covered beaches, it is perfect for relaxing, away from the busy life of the cities.

Later: time to explore Wadi Shab, one of the most popular wadis in Oman. Get ready for an exciting trek as we explore secluded streams filled with an explosion of colours -  turquoise waters contrasted by the rocky surroundings.

In the evening: it's your last night in Oman! We'll celebrate with a farewell dinner, toasting to adventures, good food and new friends!

Time To Head Home

It's your last day in Oman. You’ll be transferred to the airport to catch your flight back home. Have a safe journey!
