Grand adventure in Oman
For an adventurous holiday with dramatic canyons, glistening wadis and towering mountain peaks, look no further than Oman. Natural coral reefs and spectacular coasts make Oman one of the best diving destinations in the world.
Go on a boat ride at the isolated Arabian fjords to see dolphins swimming in the peaceful water, or witness turtles laying their eggs at Ras al Jinz. Have an exciting 4WD ride over the rolling dunes at Shaqiya Sands, or take a camel or quad bike there to watch the spectacular pink and orange sunset. To view the incredible desert oases in the 500 million-year-old terrain, go mountain biking in Jebel Shams or kite surfing over the waters of Masirah Island. For thrill-seekers there is rock climbing, canyoning and abseiling, where you can scale huge coastal sea cliffs and abseil 178 metres in Majlis al Jinn Cave. tourismoman.com.au
