Tour Details

On this private tour of the Sharqiya region, you will experience the very best of Oman, from the quaint town of Fanja to the most beautiful wadis of Oman located in the Wadi Bani Khalid. Your excursion includes time to swim in a fresh water pool, bask in the warming sun after your dip, enjoy a delicious picnic lunch (at an additional cost), and visit hidden caves. You will even get to explore the Wahiba Sands Desert, where you will have a four wheel drive adventure through the stretches of glistening sand dunes.

Your day long nature tour will depart early in the morning from the Muscat Port gate. You will have the opportunity to snap pictures galore at your first stop at the Nakhl oasis and next in the quaint village of Fanja, where you will see the charming castle fort before heading to the warm springs of Thowarah. After taking time for the perfect photo, you will move on to the most breathtaking views of Oman, by way of lush plantations covered with palm trees and small mountain villages.

Once you have made your off road journey to one of the country's most amazing and beautiful wadis, Wadi Bani Khalid, you will see crystal clear water pools and unique rock paintings. Your time at Wadi Sahtan will allow for a dip in the water pools and even time for relaxing in the glorious sunshine. The wadi is massive and full of hidden caves. This part of your journey is exciting and serene at the same time. You will feel refreshed and at peace when your time at the wadi is complete. Enjoy a picnic lunch (cost not included in the tour price) to fuel your body before traveling onto your next adventure.

Later in the afternoon, you'll encounter the Wahiba Sands Desert, with its stretches and stretches of colorful sand ranging from orange to hues of amber. Your time in the desert includes a 4x4 adventure so you can really absorb the grandeur of this massive area. Where the sands meet the ocean, rock that has been compressed from sand has formed into abstract and unique shapes. Be sure to bring your camera to capture images of this magnificent landscape. From there you will head back to Muscat.
