Day 1

We will embark on a journey to some of the most stunning wadis in Muscat. After having breakfast, we will depart by 4WD vehicles at 0800 hrs and head to Wadi Arbayeen. On the way, we will pass through the fishing town of Quriyat and visit its 400-year-old fort and the Fish souk. As we drive along the waterfront, we may also get a chance to spot Flamingos and Eagles.
Next, we will drive through the villages of Mazaara and Dibab to reach Wadi Shab. Here, we will take a visually stunning and easy walk through the wadi, where we will see green grass, banana and mango trees, and streams and pools. We will have the opportunity to swim in a crystal clear pond and a magnificent waterfall.
After our refreshing swim, we will head to the white sands of Fins Beach, where we will set up camp for the night.
Day 2

We will start our day with breakfast and then head to the coast, where we will visit the mausoleum of Bibi Miriam at Qalhat. Here, we will view Bibi Miriam's tomb and the ruins of the ancient town of Qalhat. As we drive along the coast, we will also pass by the huge plant of Oman LNG and arrive in Sur, where traditional wooden Omani dhows are made. After lunch at a local restaurant, we will continue to Wadi Bani Khalid through the Eastern Hajar mountains.
At Wadi Bani Khalid, we will take an easy walk to the blue rock pools and have time for a refreshing swim before heading to Wahiba Sands. The Wahiba's are romantic deserts with rolling dunes in various shades of red and honey. This is the traditional home of the nomadic Bedouins. We will experience 4W driving on the dunes and visit a Bedouin community. We will then witness the sunset at the top of the dunes and spend the night in the camp at desert.
Day 3

We will start our journey across the magnificent Wahiba Sands. The track is often easy to follow, but the wind sometimes covers it with sand. Our journey will take us first to the south and then south-east, with the northern part of the desert made up of almost parallel high dunes.
We will also visit a Bedouin house where we will have Omani coffee and dates. We will reach the village of Qihayd, located on the edge of the Arabian Sea and stop at Mahawat to buy food and get some ice for our next camp site. After lunch at a local restaurant in Mahawat, we will proceed to Film to watch Flamingo Birds.
As we travel through Film and Al Khaluf, we will set up our camp on the Ras Bentout.
Day 4

After departing from Khaluf, we will make our way to Sinaw. We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant in Sinaw before continuing our journey to Nizwa, the former capital of Oman. We will stay overnight at the Hotel at Nizwa
Day 5

After breakfast, we will visit the traditional Nizwa Souq, where we will have an opportunity to purchase and see many traditional Omani items. Then, we will visit the Nizwa Fort, which was recently rehabilitated and has a defensive and housing part. The fort also has a small but well-done museum about local culture.
Afterward, we will drive to the scenic Jebel Akhdar green mountain, which is 2000m high. We will go for a two-hour hike, exploring the forest and old villages and enjoying the beautiful terraces. We will also visit the oasis village of Birkat Al Mauz, Wadi Bani Habeeb, and Lady Diana point.
At the end of the day, we will transfer to Jebel Akhdar for overnight camping.
Day 6

After a leisurely breakfast, we will visit Misfat Al Abrein, a charming mountain village known for its timeless beauty and friendly locals. We will embark on a 1 hour hike, exploring the area and immersing ourselves in its serenity. Next, we will make our way to the starting point of the Wadi Nakhr hike, a 1 hour journey along the riverbed emerging from a canyon. This is the beginning of the Wadi Nakhr Gorge, stretching several kilometers into the Jebel Mountains to become the Grand Canyon of Oman. After the off-road adventure in Wadi Nakhr, we will ascend to Jebel Shams, the highest peak in Oman at 10,000 feet. From the rim of the canyon, you will be able to see the Nakhr village, 2km below. During our visit, we will have the opportunity to meet the Shuwawis, mountain dwellers who sell blankets and carpets. We will then descend and witness the stunning mountain sunset before settling in for the night at a Jebel Shams hotel.
Day 7

After breakfast, hike for 5 hours at Jabal Shams for a balcony walk. The recommended route is easy and goes through the rim of the ‘Grand Canyon’ starting from Al Khitaym village. You'll walk past a couple of scenic corners and an abandoned village called “Al Sab”.
Cross the adventurous Wadi Bani Awf with scenic mountain villages of Hat and BladSayt, where you'll come across locals and experience their lifestyle in the harsh climate. Break for lunch at local restaurant.
Return to Muscat later in the afternoon and drop off at the desired location.
