Discovering the highlights of the Sultinate
Several companies in Muscat offer a variety of tours of Oman and its attractions ranging from seeing the sights of Muscat, full day tours exploring the Batinah coast, to visiting traditional Omani villages, souks and desert oases.
Popular tours include travelling across the desert in a 4x4 to the Bait Na'aman, a 300-year-old fort built at the feet of the majestic mountains. The smooth, sand colored stones used to build Bait Na’aman invite visitors in to learn about how it was to live in 17th century Oman. Once there, explore the restored fort and its surrounding area, learning about its history and inhabitants. Other tours include the Al Hoota Cave near the ancient silversmith town of Nizwah. Estimated to be over two million years old, this network of caverns and sensational stone formations has an eco-system of its own. Plan a visit to see its dramatic stalagmites and underground lakes.
If you are a wilderness fan, make sure you include an expedition to Jebal Shams, the highest mountain in Oman, in your schedule. Adventurous types can drive a car all the way to the top of Jebal Shams and surrounding peaks, which offer unparalleled views of Oman's Al Hajar Mountains.
