Adventure Holidays in Oman

Exodus offer a wide range of adventure, activity and walking holidays to Oman. Oman is a land of dramatic contrasts. Dry arid deserts and immense sand dunes make way for lush fertile valleys and scenic untouched coastline. Ancient Arabic culture and tradition sit side by side with a modern infrastructure. The oldest of the Gulf States, Oman is often considered to be one of the most beautiful. The best way to make the most of this natural beauty is to get off the beaten track. Jeep safaris, desert camps and camel rides give you the chance to experience desert life and the rolling sand dunes at first hand. A true highlight of adventure holidays to the region.

Oman's attractions include its mountains and deserts, lush green wadis and the vibrant capital Muscat, with its forts, palaces and ancient walled city.

Four Things to Try in Oman

1 Jeep safari on Wahiba Sands

Riding the dunes of Wahiba Sands – some up top 60m high – in a 4WD jeep is a sure way to get the adrenalin going on an activity holiday in Oman. With over 15,000 square kilometres of immense dunes and rock formations mapping out millions of years of evolution, the sand dunes of Wahiba are the ideal base for an exhilarating desert safari. And after a day of excitement the Wahiba Sands provide the perfect setting for a memorable overnight camp, desert style, under the stars.

2 Wade in the Wadi

Oman is famous for its Wadis; lush oases of green nestled in its mountain valleys. Wadi Bin Khaled is one of the largest in Oman. Natural springs feed large pools of deep clear water surrounded by lush palm trees and shrubs. Above this, steep cliffs rise up out of Wadi’s lush valley floor. Canyons, folded layered rocks and caves complete this unique mountain microclimate.

3 Visit Nizwa Fort

The desert landscape of Oman is covered with forts. Nizwa Fort is the largest on the Arabian Peninsula. With fine examples of Islamic architecture, it was the seat of power during the Al Ya’ruba Dynasty. The best way to arrive there is on a camel ride. As you trek through the shimmering desert, the vast walls appear suddenly rising dramatically from the desert.

4 Muscat

Muscat, the capital of Oman, is a thriving city, offering a fascinating mix of ancient and modern. Old colonial forts co-exist with a modern, vibrant city. The city is also home to the Sultan’s Grand Mosque. An opulent building carved in marble and decorated with beautiful, ornate Islamic ceramics.
