Things to Do in Oman

Oman has a great range of things to do for all, no matter your interests. In Muscat get lost in the souqs or embark on a boat trip off the coast and either spend a day on the azure waters or a morning searching for dolphins. In the mountains there is a fort town called Nizwa which has a market every Friday, it is a proper market in the sense that animals are there to be sold and bartered over, a popular experience in Oman.

Things to do

There is of course also an abundance of beautiful hiking in the mountains, our experts can recommend the best ones to suit your abilities. In the desert you can understand more about the Bedouin way of life as well as heading up to the top of one of the majestic dunes and sitting back in time for sunset to enjoy a stunning show across the sky. For those with more time there are other things to do in Oman, there is also a chance to visit a turtle hatchery along the coast or head to the south of the country and explore the Empty Quarter which truly does feel like the most remote place on earth. Our experts can guide you and work with you to ensure you experience the best of Oman in your style.
