This beautiful and incredible country is well suited for all sorts of outdoor activities. Boasting ocean coastlines, mountains and endless dunes, Oman is a great place to scratch your itch for outdoor adventure.
Go for an intense trail run in and around Jebel Shams, or simply hike the coastal mountain range. Then finish off each day with a refreshing dip in the Gulf of Oman!
Getting to Oman might not be the easy, but the effort is certainly worth while. British Airways, Emirates, Etihad and Turkish Airlines are among the major carriers that offer daily flights to Oman.
Once you’re here, you’ll get to see what all the fuss was about, Most guides offer transport to the start of the trip, which is not very far outside of the capital. From the mountains, you’ll get great views of the Gulf of Oman, Muscat as well as out into the desert.
Oman is a fairly safe country. As with any other major city, you’ve got to have your wits about you in Muscat. However, unlike some of its neighbors, the country is quite stable and not prone to extremist activities.
Oman has one of the hottest climates on Earth, which is why visiting during winter is best. At this time, average daily temperatures are still around 18ºC to 26ºC. Rain is very rare at this time of year.
The best way to get to Oman is to fly into Oman International Airport (MCT). The airport receives direct flights from some European, Asian and African locations. Several major international airlines also service the airport.
