You have a private tour of the city, including the Sultan’s Palace, The Grand Mosque and Muttrah souq.
Day 3
You are free to relax at the hotel today.
Day 4
Head north to the Batinah Plain to the forts of Rostaq and Nakhl before traversing the Hajar Mountains through dramatic Wadi Bani Awf. Spend three nights in the Nizwa/Jebel Shams area.
Day 5
Spend the day in the mountains, marvelling at Wadi Ghul, Oman’s “Grand Canyon”, visiting dramatically-perched mountain villages like Misfah and taking a trip underground at the Al-Hoota Cave.
Day 6
The focus today is on the imposing forts and towns of the interior – most notably Jabeen and UNESCO-recognised Bahla. Try to be here on a Friday for the livestock auction at Nizwa.
Day 7
You head for the desert today, cresting dunes in the sweeping Wahiba Sands. Spend the night in one of our recommended desert camps.
Day 8
Head back to Muscat via the pools at Wadi Bani Khalid and Sur town before hitting the coastal road. On this you’ll pass palm-lined rivers at Wadi Shab and Tiwi, and peer into Bimmah sinkhole.
Day 9
Self-drivers drop their car at the airport today; otherwise you have a private transfer to the airport in time for your flight home.

The heart of Oman’s appeal lies in the combination of stunning natural scenery, an attractive and well-preserved heritage, and a unique, well-managed blend of the ancient and modern Arabian worlds. This tour showcases all of these, starting with a few days in the capital, Muscat, before working through the forts, mountains and deserts of the interior, finishing back in Muscat.

3 nights Muscat – 3 nights Nizwa and the mountains – 1 night Wahiba Sands – 1 night Muscat
