I took my family on a version of this trip in 2018, and it was wonderful. Oman is still relatively little visited by tourists, especially compared to its neighbour, Dubai, but is all the more charming for this.  There is plenty of scope to get off-the-beaten-track and to catch a glimpse of traditional Arabia.

At a Glance

Oman offers a dip into the exotic without having to spend too long on a plane or suffer too much from jet lag.  This trip takes in the very best of what Oman has to offer - spectacular desert and mountain scenery, perfect oases, dramatic forts and idyllic beaches. Self-driving is smooth and easy and really allows you to get off the beaten track and explore at your own pace.
