Day 1

On day one, we will be visiting two beautiful spots in Oman, Wadi Al Arbeieen and Wadi Mibam. In the morning, we will depart to Wadi Al Arbeieen, which is one of the nicest spots in Oman and is well-known for its off-roading opportunities. You will have the chance to take a bath before continuing to Wadi Mibam. In the afternoon, we will continue to Wadi Tiwi, which is named after the Tiwi village at the coast. It is a truly beautiful wadi with lush plantations, giving it a different and greener feel than many other wadis. We will drive 30 minutes inside the wadiand park near some houses before entering the narrow streets of Mibam village. Walking through the houses, you will see some stairs that will lead you down into Wadi Tiwi. From here, it is a 2-hour traverse through mostly large boulder stones with one or two tricky spots, before reaching the stunning feature Wadi Tiwi. You will reach a gorgeous pool at the wadi bend, surrounded by palm trees and overgrowth on the wadi cliffs. To reach the 'Mibam waterfall' at the bottom of Mibam, you will need to swim the 80-100m distance in this pool. We will be staying overnight at a hotel in Sur
Day 2

On day two, we will be visiting two beautiful and unique locations, Wadi Shab and Sink Hole. In the morning, we will depart to Wadi Shab. Inside Wadi Shab, you will have to walk along palm groves, rugged rocky cliffs and swim through some pools to reach the main attraction, a submerged cave with waterfalls. It will take you about 30-45 minutes of walking to get to the cave, and to enter it, you will have to swim through a hole between the mountains. In the afternoon, we will continue to Sink Hole, a freshwater crater that was formed naturally over the centuries. We will stop at Fins beach, where you will have the opportunity to take a bath before going to the hotel. It is possible to see turtles while they are laying eggs, but it is not the high season. The turtle tour will start at 8 pm and end at 11 pm. We will be staying overnight at Sur.

We will scramble down the valley of boulders and follow the local 'Fala'j, which are series of canals that help irrigate local farms and crops, until we reach the first stunning pools. The beautiful turquoise water, long swims, impressive jumps, and good route-finding make this canyon a great adventure.

This 17th-century castle is located in Bahla and is a stunning piece of history. You will spend the night at a hotel in Nizwa
