OLD MUSCAT TOURISM

TOURS

Ad Dakhiliyah Governorate

We will reach Nizwa driving through Hajar Mountain via Fanja. A photo stop is planned at Birkat Al Mawz, an old village where the houses, built long ago in the pure Omani traditions, are still well conserved. Visit the impressive 17th Century fort and to the traditional souq, some of Nizwa’s main points of interest. After Nizwa, we will proceed to Bahla, where the pre-Islamic fort is part of the UNESCO worldwide cultural heritage. (The fort is for now closed for renovation). Only a few kilometers away, we also visit the Jabrin Castle, one of the finest and most gorgeous Castles of Oman.

Green Mountain Tours

In Nizwa, visit the 17th century Nizwa Fort, located in the city center and surrounded by the traditional souq (market), where the locals trade in various merchandises, from vegetables to jewelry. From there, we will continue to the Jabal Akhdar, literally translated as the “Green Mountain”. Its elevated altitude (the Saiq plateau is 2000 meters high) brings the moderate climate necessary to grow all types of plantations (fruit trees, roses...). Indeed, while visiting the Jabal Akhdar, you will feel refreshed and you will be surprised by the greenery of the site!

Desert Trip

The tour begins in the morning, leaving the bustle of the city to the Wahiba Sands, a vast mass of red and white sea of sand. Visitors have the chance to have a close look at the Bedouin life by visiting Bedouin houses, where they will also see various traditional handicrafts, and maybe choose to experience a camel ride ( not include). Then, proceed to Wadi Bani Khalid, considered as the most beautiful wadi in Oman. It is set deep into the hills and is reputed to have more water than any other place in the Sultanate (Swimming is possible; you may want to take your swimsuit)

Coastal Trail

Leave from Muscat via Quriyat and then the Sinkhole, a part of collapsed mountain filled with seawater. This huge cavity now contains peaceful turquoise water inviting for a swim and then reach Wadi Shab, which is certainly one of the most gorgeous destinations in Oman. Beyond the breathtaking entrance, you will see aquamarine pools, waterfalls, and terraced plantations. It is a nice journey to walk through this peaceful area, where oleander bushes attract butterflies and where the singing of the Birds is lovely. (Swimming is possible; you may want to take your swimsuit).

Dolphin Watching “MUSCAT”

Come and see dolphins and experience a thrill of a life time. The water around Oman is filled with extensive marine life and one of the most familiar sights is the dolphins. See all around the year, dolphins watching make for exciting watching as they swim around and under fishing crafts in search of tuna, mackerel, and sardines. Dolphin can be found any distance from offshore. There is no single location which you are most likely to see cetaceans. While we are very successful in sighting dolphins there is no guarantee every trip sighting dolphins.
