There are adventures aplenty in Oman; from swimming in a hidden desert oasis to exploring ancient forts, sailing the waters of the Arabian Sea to sleeping beneath the stars in a Bedouin camp. Now you can discover all that this exciting destination has to offer, as Oman, Blacks Outdoor and Exodus Travels have teamed up to offer readers the chance to win an Exodus trip for two and spend A Week in Oman...
You’ll start your journey by exploring the old quarters of Muscat, stopping by the Sultan’s palace and sipping coffee with locals before heading to the marina to sail the waters much like the seafarers of yore on a dhow
(a traditional fisherman’s boat). While staying in Oman’s capital, admire its Grand Mosque and experience the bustle of the colourful Mutrah Souq. Then, head onto Sur from where you’ll venture to the Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve to catch sight of green turtles as they clamber up the beach to their nesting grounds.
No visit to Oman is complete without exploring its magnificent desert landscapes, and on this trip you’ll swim the turquoise pools of the Wadi Bani Khalid before tackling the dunes of the Wahiba Sands in 4WD; marvel at the views over the ‘Grand Canyon of Arabia’ from Jebel Shams; and uncover historic fortifications such as 17th century Jabrin Fort, the UNESCO-listed Bahla Fort, and impressive Nizwa Fort.
While in Nizwa, you’ll also catch all the action of its cattle market auction; a lively affair that sees traders descend upon the ancient city from near and far.
As you traverse the rugged roads back to Muscat, take a moment to pause at Nakhal Fort and its hot spring, to reflect on your grand Omani adventure with Exodus Travels.
Blacks lives and breathes the outdoors, from simple walks and technical hikes to intrepid expeditions.
In 1861, Thomas Black set up his own sail-making business on the River Clyde and, using the same materials and expertise, deftly turned his hand to crafting tents and shelters, epitomising the quality that the company still stands for today. With 53 stores across the UK and ranges available from many top brands, Blacks aim to make the outdoors as accessible as possible and ensure that you have the right clothing and equipment for wherever your adventure may take you.
