Adventure trip to Oman
Oman is one of the most attractive tourist destinations in the Middle East. The country is located on the southeastern corner of the Arabian Peninsula with a coastline of 1,700 km from the borders of the Republic of Yemen in the south to the Strait of Hormuz in the north. Oman is washed by three seas: the Gulf of Oman, the Persian Gulf and the Arabian Sea. It is the third largest country in the Arabian Peninsula after Saudi Arabia on the west and Yemen on the south, with a total area of approximately 309,500 sq. km. Oman is known for its traditional hospitality. The locals are very friendly and are always ready to help. Here you will definitely feel like being home from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave. English is widely spoken here, sometimes in a very simple way, but you will easily find a common language with the Omanis.
One of the most enduring appeals of Oman lies in its long coastal stretch with proximity to high mountain ranges such Al Hajar and the desert landscape of Wahiba Sands. Strategically located by the Gulf of Oman and at the entrance of the Persian Gulf, Oman has a rich maritime history. Ruled by a Sultan, the country today is a fine synthesis of the contemporary and the traditional.
The trip starts and culminates at Muscat, covering the highland areas around Jebel Akhdar, the shifting dunes of Wahiba Sands, and the small beach resort settlement of Ras Al Hadd, also famous for being the breeding ground of green sea turtles on the Gulf of Oman coast.
