Ahlan Wahsahlan Oman – Welcome to Oman
From the lush green hills and waterfalls of Dhofar, across the drifting desert dunes of Al Sharqiyah (Wahiba) Sands, to the endless unspoilt beaches along the Arabian Sea: the Sultanate of Oman is a country rich in diverse natural beauty. All just waiting to be explored... and now with the new non-stop flights with Oman Air from Frankfurt (4 times a week) and Munich (3 times a week) to Muscat even more easier to reach.
With 3,165 km of coastline and clean, unpolluted waters, Oman offers an abundance of water activities. Diving in Oman provides adventure and enjoyment with dramatic wall drop-offs and scenic coral lined fjords, ranging in depth from 6-40 m.
The warm waters of Oman are ideal for kayaking tours, which are available around the inlets of Bander Al-Khiran close to Muscat. One of the great places to surf in the Sultanate is Masirah Island, an ideal spot for windsurfing, particularly during the Khareef (monsoon) season.
Besides the abundance of water activities, Oman also offers innumerable land activities for the adventurous spirit with its towering mountains, steep cliffs and rugged paths, all overlooking breathtaking natural scenery. Above an altitude of 1,900m, trekking is possible all year round and is by far the best way to enjoy Oman’s spectacular landscape.
The Sultanate of Oman offers some of the most daring and exhilarating cave adventures in the world, most of which should only be attempted by experienced and fit cavers.
The Omani desert is a large expanse of sand dunes extending 200km from the mountains of the Eastern Hajar down to the Arabian Sea. Desert adventures in Oman offer many experiences: camel-riding, dune-driving, sand-boarding or just sitting around a campfire under the stars in the traditional Bedouin style.
In Oman, there is a huge range of exciting activities to satisfy even the most energetic visitor.
