Bring intriguing coastal trails and history alive in South Hampshire
Located on the Arabian Peninsula and home to one of the most eclectic terrains, walking holidays in Oman encompass everything from desert to riverbed oases and expansive coastlines along the Arabian Gulf. The dunes of Wahiba Sands stretch from the mountains to the sea, making for a diverse and scenic holiday.
Begin your walking holiday in Muscat, the country’s capital city, which is surrounded by both mountains and desert. With a vast history that dates back to antiquity, it is also home to a wide range of upmarket shopping malls, making it the ideal place to soak up Oman’s culture and pick up keepsakes.
The famous dunes of Wahiba Sands span the eastern Al Hajar Mountains to the Arabian Sea, meaning there is a colourful and varied terrain to be explored during your time in Oman. This picturesque setting is the perfect spot to see the sun go down over the magnificent sand dunes.
Venture to the Al Hajar mountain range to uncover the mighty Jebel Akhdar, which is populated by fruit orchards and provides stunning views of the surrounding countryside. There is also Wadi Ghul, lovingly known as the Grand Canyon of Arabia, which stretches as far as the eye can see, as well as the highest mountain in the region, Jebel Shams.
