“A great introduction to the country in two parts - the Hajjar mountains and the wild coast - with enough challenge in the harsh conditions and no frills camping, but also plenty of time to relax, socialise and enjoy this fascinating country in transition between conservative Islam/pre-industrial and 21st century urbanisation.”

“A fantastic 10 day trip with six nights wild camping. The walking in the Western Hajar was just wonderful and then to have the two days at the coast just made the trip complete. So glad I did this trip!”

“My first trip to Oman was a reward for reaching retirement age! I was not disappointed. Oman has so far managed to balance modernisation without the extremes of Dubai People were lovely and helpful The walking was challenging as you spent much time looking down trying to find a safe path.Also the heat hit 40c which I found difficult to cope with on occasions. The scenery is beautifully rugged with varied plant life and lots of goats!”

“If you want to enjoy wonderful mountain scenery and great coastal walking then this is the holiday for you. Trekking in Oman offers this brilliant combination as well as the opportunity to learn about the history and culture of a fascinating country. If you also enjoy wild(ish) camping then definitely go for it. The places where we camped we're all beautifully situated, the tents were good and the mattresses the most comfortable I have slept on while camping.”

“I wasn't sure what to expect on this trip and I was completely bowled over with the beauty and culture of Oman. If you enjoy breathtaking scenery and different trekking every day as well as climbing over boulders and being at one with nature, then this is the trip for you!”

“This trip was breathtaking starting with the grand balcony walk ending up on a deserted beach watching sunrise having slept out under the stars. Rob and the local team were fabulous , always sharing their passion for Oman. The local Omani people always greeted us with a smile and made us feel extremely welcome. A physically demanding trip but the pace was sensible giving everyone recovery time in the heat. A truly brilliant experience !”

“Oman, a jewel in the middle east for exploring unspoilt mountains and rugged coastal paths late into the year when its not too hot. Each morning you wake up to a glorious sunrise and after a good days walk - witness a stunning sunset.... A trip not to be missed.”

Oman - Tour Highlights and Travel Tips

As the oldest independent state in the middle east, Oman and its people are incredibly proud of the country's heritage and modern progress. A land of impressive sand dunes, bustling souks and markets, and impressive architecture (including the famous Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque), Oman is an Arabian paradise. Rich in history and natural beauty, Oman is a destination with plenty to offer its visitors.

Tour Highlights

  • Take a dhow (Arabian boat) cruise across the Khor ash Sham (look out for dolphins!)
  • Roam the grounds of Khasab Castle
  • Haggle your way through Old Muttrah Souk in Muscat
  • Go off-road driving in Wadi Bani Khalid, one of Oman's most popular wadis (a ravine that is dry in non-rainy seasons)
  • Experience the unique design of the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque
  • Take in a show (or simply enjoy the architecture) at the Royal Opera House in Muscat
  • Camp overnight on the South Summit of Jebel Shams

Travel Tips

  • As with many countries in the Middle East, members of the opposite sex are expected to avoid eye contact and touching. Members of the same sex greet each other with a kiss on both cheeks, or on the nose.
  • Whether you're looking to buy anything from spices to gold jewellery, be sure to not miss Oman's incredible souks. Haggling is expected - know what you're willing to pay and get ready to ask for it (you’ll get better with practice).
  • While you may see two men holding hands in public, this is a sign of close friendship in Oman. Homosexuality is illegal in this country.
  • While you should certainly pack your swimsuit to take advantage of Oman's many crystal-clear wadis, you should always dress conservatively outside the water. This means covering your knees and shoulders.
  • Coffee aficionados must try Omani coffee, flavoured with spices in lieu of milk and sugar and often served with dates.

Oman has seasonal weather so please do check up on the best time to visit Oman before planning your tour. And if you’re still hunting for more things to do and places to explore in Oman, do check out our Oman Travel Guide for more information.
