Oman – Wadi, Sea, Desert
Oman, the eastern corner of the immense Arabian peninsula, is a magical place. The desert meets the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean, the pools of freshwater in which to bathe create an incredible contrast with the immense dunes of the Wahiba Sand.
A complete journey that will allow us to appreciate the best of this corner of the world by living the holiday in an unconventional way.
Discover the program
Day 1 – flight from Italy. Recommended direct flight Oman Air from Malpensa or alternatively Lufthansa flight via Munich (one way) and Frankfurt (return). Overnight in flight.
Day 2 – Arrival in the morning, completion of car rental practices and departure! As soon as you leave Muscat, the panorama begins to reveal the raw beauty of Oman with its mountains bare of vegetation. We take a secondary road that leads us to two wadis that we travel between high rock ridges. In the afternoon arrival at the hotel on the sea.
Day 3 – in the morning trekking along Wadi Shab, considered by all to be the most beautiful Wadi in Oman. The trek takes about 1 hour or so to reach the pools where you can swim. Unique experience! In the early afternoon, we move to Wadi Tiwi, equally spectacular with its small waterfall and the green pools surrounded by mango, banana and palm trees. In the evening arrival at the hotel in Sur.
Day 4 – Sur is known for the ability of its inhabitants in all seafaring activities. We visit the last active shipyard that builds the Dhows, the typical local wooden boats. Then we move to the eastern tip of Oman for an afternoon on the beach with the possibility, depending on the season, to go on boat trips and see the sea turtles that inhabit these waters. In the afternoon we travel the entire east coast to our hotel.
Day 5 – heading south to go and see the white dunes that reach the sea. Suggestive and unusual, they create an incredible coastline. Sand mixed with salt seems to form cliffs. So we start the journey to the desert. We leave the sea and enter the heart of the Wahiba Sand. About 3 hours of driving on the track and sand to reach the tented camp that welcomes us for the night. Just arrived, a small trek to reach the top of the cordon from which to admire a fantastic sunset.
Day 6 – morning excursion on foot to better enjoy the silence and majesty of the desert which here takes on truly spectacular red and yellow shades. Then departure for Nizwa. Arrival and accommodation in the hotel.
Day 7 – Wake up early, the Friday market is all to be experienced! on Friday morning Nizwa is teeming with activity: the most suggestive thing is coming and going of farmers who come to sell livestock but all the Souqs where the trade is very active are worthy of note. The fish souq with tuna and the catch of the rich local sea, the stalls of fruit, vegetables, spices, sweets…. But Nizwa also has one of the best-preserved forts in Oman, a visit is inevitable. In the afternoon we take the way back to Muscat and if time permits, we could face the old panoramic road, a decidedly suggestive dirt road.
Day 8 – We are in Muscat, the capital. In the morning visit to the flies of Sultan Qaboos, imposing and beautiful, with the largest carpet in the world. Around 12.00 transfer to the airport for the return flight.
