Oman Round Trip - 11 Days
Welcome to your 11-day round trip through Oman!
Upon your arrival at Muscat airport, you will be welcomed by the local tour guide in Oman. A modern coach will take you to your hotel in Ruwi for your first overnight stay.
On the second day of the tour of Oman, you will go to Batinah. Once there, you will visit the traditional fish and vegetable market.
The journey continues to Nakhl Fortress. Only recently restoration work was carried out on the fortress. The fortress has been newly furnished with traditional furniture, handicrafts and historical relics.
After visiting the Nakhl Fortress, you will drive to the hot springs of Al Thowarra. Here you have free time to explore the surroundings or sit next to the springs.
Your journey through Oman continues towards Nizwa. Al Hamra is an expanding village at the foot of the mountains. Inhabitants of the town have a long lineage and are known for their links to the Sufi movement.
There will be a stop at the Bahla Fort, which is under renovation and can therefore only be admired from the outside. The complex, which dates back to the 14th century, is considered one of the most beautiful fortified cities in the world and has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1987.
Your journey through Oman will take you to Birkat Al Mauz, also known as the "Sea of Bananas". Here you will find a collection of mud ruins (former houses), which are still partially inhabited.
The next day the journey continues to the coast of Ras Al Hadd. You will have the opportunity to relax and spend the afternoon at leisure.
In the evening follows dinner with delicious specialities of Oman at the hotel.
After a delicious breakfast, your journey through Oman to Sur starts. While you are travelling in this area, think for a few moments about water. There is very little of that in this flat area. If you let your eyes wander over the land and you see an inviting oasis with shimmering trees on the left side - this is a mirage!
On your journey through Oman, you will make a stop at the largest mosque. The mosque was built over six years from 1995 to 2001. Furthermore, you will visit the museum "The Museum of the Frankincense Land". This UNESCO World Heritage Site was opened in July 2007 in the Al Balid Archaeological Park and is the last addition to the Ottoman cultural heritage.
The penultimate day of the round trip through Oman takes you to the old fishing village of Taqah, famous for the production of dried sardines and the traditional old Dhofari House. You will have the opportunity to walk through the streets lined with old Ottoman houses.
At the end of your trip, you will go on a dolphin watching tour in the harbour of Rysut.
On the night we say goodbye to Oman and return to the airport in a luxury coach.
