Everything we do is tailor-made; our itineraries are just suggestions to give you an idea of what is possible. Please contact us so we can tailor the perfect holiday exclusively for you.

Musandam, the geographic oddity thrust into the Strait of Hormuz, an enclave of Omani territory surrounded by the UAE, is a place of steep mountains, remote villages and sinuous fjords, unlike anywhere else in Oman. The 21st century intrudes only in the guise of luxury beach retreats, and after exploring some of the rest of the country, Musandam is the perfect way to cap off your Omani adventure.

If you want to save yourself an extra domestic flight in the country it’s also possible to finish this itinerary up in Dubai, as you can cross into the UAE by land in just a few hours from Musandam’s main town, Khasab.

3 nights Muscat – 3 nights Nizwa and the mountains – 1 night Muscat – 4 nights Musandam Peninsula
