5 night/6 day Oman Tour
After many years of exploring Oman, I have teamed up with Muscat-based Ibex Adventures to deliver an interesting and varied tour of Oman.
The Sultanate is such a beautiful place with friendly people and fantastic things to discover and it has taken me many visits to build and refine this itinerary, so I can share my love of this country with others. Regular readers will have already followed me to many of these places through the pages of OutdoorUAE – now there is a chance to see these sights for yourself!
Open to tourists and expats alike, whether with their own car or through our car hire partners, we will lead you to some amazing off the beaten track sights over approximately 1800kms with 3 nights hotel stay and 2 nights wild camping.
Arrive in Ibri, explore the area and stay overnight at the Ibri Oasis Hotel
Early breakfast, head southwards to the Umm As Sameem and the magnificent dunes of Oman’s Rub Al Khali. Overnight remote camp – 250kms from the nearest town! You can read about some of our previous visits in Outdoor UAE Nov ’16 and Mar ’17 – this is one of my favourite desert areas here!
Break camp, head eastwards to Khaluf. Short 1 hour pit stop at small hotel for a wash and brush up! Beach drive and overnight camping on the sugar dunes, wake up listening to the sound of the ocean!
Travel northwards over the Wahiba Sands, stopping for photos and to explore, before making our way to Ras Al Hadd Turtle Resort, overnight there
Explore Sur, stop at Wadi Dayqah Dam, exploring and meandering as we go. Overnight at 4* Crowne Plaza OCEC Muscat (Optional for UAE guests who may wish to make their way back home)
