Immerse yourself in traditional Islamic culture in Oman, a land unspoilt by time or commercialism. Ancient history and colourful traditions ensure every inch of this nation bears witness to its immortal heritage, with some incredible cultural experiences, including the Grand Mosque with its stunning Arabic architecture. There are also several UNESCO World Heritage Sites to explore, including the Bat Tombs, which date back to the third millennium BC, and the Frankincense Route, a group of locations that contributed to the flourishing frankincense trade during the Middle Ages.
For those that love to explore beneath the waves, Oman is one of the best kept secrets in the diving world! There are numerous coral reefs surrounding the Sultanate with dramatic wall drop-offs to tempt the experienced diver, and scenic coral lined fjords, ranging in depth from 6 meters to 40 meters! Kayaking is another widely available sport, and Oman is also one of the best places on earth to see dolphins, so we can highly recommend taking a boat trip off the coast of Muscat. If you’d like to keep your feet firmly on dry land then we can head to the desert for a 4×4 safari, or spot of wadi bashing!
