trip details

day 1

Arrive at Muscat International Airport, where your hero's welcome includes a chauffeur-driven ride to your hotel. Overnight in Muscat.

day 2

You and your fellow explorer are driven to Nakhal to visit the Nakhal Fort. A site from the Bani Kharous and Ya'arubah dynasties, it houses traditional furniture, handicrafts and historic relics, and offers panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. Venture into Nakhal village and explore the warm springs and oasis, with views of the date plantations and mountain vista. Continue on to Bilad Sait along the foothills of Jabal Akdhar Mountain, which you cross to arrive in Al Hamra. Here you visit the mud houses before pushing on to Nizwa. Overnight in Nizwa.

day 3

Tour the 17th-century Nizwa Fort; built by Imam Sultan Bin Saif Al Ya'aruba, from the top you can see the entire city. Quest on to Nizwa Souq—known for its handcrafted 'khanjar' (daggers), and beautiful silver jewellery—before heading to the 17th-century Jabrin Castle, with its elaborate decoration, paintings, and Islamic motifs. You'll also stop for a photograph of the UNESCO World Heritage Bahla Fort. Overnight in Nizwa.

day 4

Your daring journey takes you to Ibra, stopping at Sinaw if time permits, and then on to Rumlat Al Wahiba desert. Here you really lead the expedition, taking the wheel of the 4x4 for an exhilarating drive over the dunes. This evening in Ras Al Hadd, you see the green sea turtles laying their eggs on the beach. Overnight in Sur.

day 5

You're driven along the coast, where you'll see the blue waters of the Gulf of Oman and its sugar-soft white beaches. Via the fishing village of Quriyat, you come to Fins beach, where you shake off your intrepid nature with a swim before continuing to 'Wadi Shaab', the 'ravine between cliffs', for a picnic at a small additional cost. Overnight in Muscat at The Chedi Hotel.

days 6, 7, and 8

Take a well-earned break at the five-star Chedi Hotel, where you stay in the Serai Room, complete with 32-inch flat-screen TV, Bose entertainment system, fruit basket, inclusive mini bar, and Wi-Fi.
