Oman trekking

Oman trekking

Oman is a laid back and hospitable trekking destination with friendly people, a lovely coastline, wild mountains and wonderful trekking possibilities. You can count on the warmest of welcomes when you explore this undiscovered jewel of Arabia.

Unlike glitzy Dubai and austere Saudi Arabia, Oman is an altogether more laid back and hospitable place with friendly people, a lovely coastline, wild mountains and wonderful opportunities for trekking. A visit to this fascinating country will leave you with many unforgettable images: wide landscapes of rugged mountains and deep canyons stretching into the distance; ancient mountain villages clinging to cliff sides or nestling in remote and spectacular wadis; lush oases of swaying date palms fed by ancient irrigation canals; and Bedouin tribesmen leading their camels over desert dunes. These landscapes are overseen by imposing sand-coloured forts which bear witness to Oman’s warlike past and prominent location along the ancient trade routes of the gulf.

You can experience the delights of Oman by walking through gorges and villages, gazing into vast canyons, hiking across the Wahiba sands, haggling in the bustling souks, swimming in inviting wadis, touring the mosques and palaces of Muscat and ending with a romantic trip on a dhow. The wonderful thing is, you can do all of this in just one trip on our Mountains and Deserts of Oman walking holiday.
