Spend star-filled nights at luxe desert camps in Great Wahiba Sands and Wadi Rum; soak in amazing vistas from the “balcony walk” along the edge of Wadi Nakhr, the Grand Canyon of Arabia; and explore the “Red Rose City” of Petra, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World.
Did you know that Oman is one of only two sultanates in the world? Closed to Westerners for many years, this intriguing country offers a striking mosaic of contrasts—gleaming modern cities and ancient villages, along with windswept sand dunes and soaring mountains, all bordered by blue skies and shimmering clear waters. A land of history, an Oman tour offers the opportunity to admire stunning architecture, such as that of the Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque, and multiple UNESCO World Heritage Sites—the Land of Frankincense, the Archaeological Sites of the Bat Tombs, and the Aflaj Irrigation System. And, an Oman tour isn’t complete without a visit to the Ras Al Jinz Turtle Reserve; hosting some 13,000 green sea turtles as they come ashore each year, the Reserve is one of the largest nesting sites in the Indian Ocean.
