Forts & Frankincense, Sands & Souqs, Beaches & Birds, Mountains & Mystery.
Oman is a richly diverse and surprising country. Landscapes vary from harsh, jagged mountain ranges to lush, scented date gardens, with a long empty beaches. The frankincense trade from the sub-tropical south dates from 5,000 BC whilst the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque is elegantly 21st century. Less oil-rich than its neighbours, traditional markets flourish, there are remarkable forts, well organized informative museums, striking mountain scenery, mud villages, wadis and peaks plus highly adapted wildlife and plants.
With local guides, we explore this huge variety.
