Grand ad­ven­ture in Oman

Vacations & Travel - - Travel talk -

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
