Departure Time

8:00 AM
Leave your central Muscat hotel by private, air-conditioned 4x4, with your private driver at the wheel. Settle into the comfortable interior, and begin your day trip with a scenic drive south to the coastal town of Quriyat.

Your itinerary can be tailored to suit your wishes, so let your guide know if there’s anywhere you want to see more or less of on your way.

Pass through the rugged foothills of the Hajar Mountains and take a stroll around Quriyat, a fishing village known for its delightful corniche waterfront and restored fort.

Next, head off road into the eastern Hajar range to discover some of Oman’s most beautiful scenery. Trundle along unmade roads through a series of palm-coated wadis, passing date groves, tiny villages and idyllic, empty gorges.

Pull up at the natural rock pools of Wadi Daiqat to enjoy a tasty picnic lunch. Revel in the gorgeous setting as you eat, and then continue your scenic journey through the palm-laden canyons and craggy slopes of Wadi Al Mih and Wadi Yiti.

Hear how the wadis were formed and their importance to rural life in Oman, from your guide, and then finish your trip with a hotel drop-off.

Mountain facsination that didnt live up to expectation

We had really be looking forward to this tour – and had been willing to pay a higher price for it than advertised on your website. However, the tour itself fell short of the trip that was advertised. We were advised that it would be around 10 hours. However, we were taken back to our hotel after only 7.5 hours; we were promised a relaxing picnic lunch by a pool / wadi but we were given lunch in a very hot snack bar in a service area; the guide’s command of English was limited and although he tried had he was unable to answer many of the questions that would have helped us to understand what we were seeing; the guides behaviour was erratic. The things we saw were great - it was the way it was delivered

This was a highlight of our trip to the UAE and very worthwhile doing. It would have been nice if our driver/guide could have spoken better English. We battled a little to communicate
