With Oman ranking as one of the hottest travel destinations for 2019 by several major publications, Original Travel, a tailor-made itinerary company has released a new itinerary for travelers looking to jet off to the up-and-coming destination.
From dolphin spotting in the Gulf of Oman to off-roading in the Hajar Mountains to glamping under the desert stars, there are a myriad of experiences for every type of traveler.
Your trip begins in Oman's capital, Muscat, where you can combine beachfront R&R with cultural encounters before decamping to the desert for a combination of isolation and adventure. Then, hit the heights in the Hajar Mountains, exploring the dramatic landscape on walks and visiting traditional villages before returning to Muscat.
Below are a few highlights of Original Travel’s recently unveiled itinerary to this Middle Eastern gem:
- Day 1: Upon arrival, travelers will be met at customs with a private transfer to their beachfront hotel where they’ll have the chance to relax and unwind beachfront.
- Day 4: Travelers will head to the mountains to explore “off-the-grid” in a 4X4 safari to dunes of the Wahiba Sands where they’ll glamp under the stars.
- Day 7: After traversing through the Saiq Plateau aboard a private 4x4, travelers will visit the beautiful traditional village of Al Ayn, known for its rich waterways, cool mountain air and plentiful damask roses in full bloom.
- Day 9: After a few days in the desert, travelers will explore the Daymaniyat Islands below sea level on a half-day diving and scuba diving excursion where they will come face to face with a myriad of marine life including hawksbill sea turtles and dolphins.
