Adventure from portside Muscat and Muttrah into the heart of Oman's richly coloured past. Discover the awesome Islamic forts, age-old mud-brick houses, and silver- and spice-filled souqs that make this Middle Eastern jewel such a feast for the senses. The treasures aren't all man-made: trip to the blazing remote landscapes of Wahiba Sands for a desert getaway with the Bedouins, and soak up breathtaking canyon views at Jebel Shams and Wadi Bani Awf before returning to the seaside capital.

Why you'll love this trip

  • Scramble to the top of the Wahiba Sands dunes for incredible sunset and sunrise views, and experience traditional Omani hospitality over coffee and dates with a Bedouin family.
  • Discover Oman's most phenomenal castles and mosques with guided visits to the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and Jabreen Castle.
  • Step back in time with a night in Nizwa, staying in a heritage property in the heart of the old town, and stroll the souq for souvenirs.
  • By travelling on this trip, you’ll directly support our Intrepid Foundation partner, Eden Reforestation Projects. Donations help them provide local employment opportunities and tackle climate change one tree at a time as they restore forests across 10 different countries.

Is this trip right for you?

If you are asking yourself if it worth going to Oman with Intrepid I would say: “just go and you won’t have any regrets.” 😊 A very good tour. The guide Said was the best 🙏🏼

The tour of Oman beyond Muscat was fascinating and we experienced a good mix of desert, mountains (Jebel Shams brilliant) and small towns with a great flavour of how the locals live and their history. A fun and interesting group of multinational travellers in the group was perfect, with our excellent leader, Said, and two reliable safe drivers Amin and Juma. Thank you all.

I was surprised by the beauty of Oman. The guide Said and the accomodations were great. My highlights were the turtle reserve Ras Al Jinz, Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque and the desert camp. I also enjoyed the wadi and sinkhole swim, the trip in the Canyon, visits to the shipyard and Jabrin and Nizwa Fort. Everything was well organised and the Omani hospitality with Omani coffee and dates is fantastic! Thank you Said!
