Discovering the highlights of the Sultanate
A choice of tour specialists in Muscat offer a variety of excursions in Oman and its attractions ranging from seeing the sights of Muscat, full day tours exploring the Batinah coast, to visiting traditional Omani villages, souqs and desert oases.
Popular tours include travelling across the desert in a 4x4 to Bait Na'aman, a 300-year-old fort built at the foot of the majestic mountains. The smooth, sand colored stones used to build Bait Na’aman invite visitors to learn about living in 17th century Oman. Once there, explore the restored fort and its surrounding area, learning about its history and inhabitants. Other tours include Al Hoota Cave near the ancient silversmith town of Nizwa. 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 schedule an expedition to Jebel Shams, the highest mountain in Oman. Adventurous types can drive a car all the way to the top of Jebel Shams and surrounding peaks, which offer unparalleled views of Oman's Al Hajar Mountains.
