Where

For this adventure we are heading to the beautiful Jebel Shams area in the Western Hajar mountains. The mountain is actually the highest in the country with a summit just over 3,000m with this hike at approximately 2,000m.

What

This is an incredible adventure for all. It is not an extremely difficult hike but the views are breath taking. We follow the old route around the inside of Oman's own Grand Canyon towards the recently abandoned village of Sap Bani Khamis. Above the village is a spring fed lake where we can have a refreshing dip if you wish, or just sit in the shade provided by the cave behind and enjoy the views over lunch. The route back is the reverse route so now we get those spectacular views from another angle. The gentle descent we enjoyed in the morning makes us work a little harder on the way back.

When

We depart from Muscat around 6.00am to get to Jebel Shams before the heat of the day. Starting our walk at 10.00hrs we should be enjoying a leisurely lunch by the lake around mid-day. With the return walk slightly ascending we allow a little extra time for this and aim to be back in Muscat by 17.00hrs.

This adventure runs along the coast between As Sifah and Quriyat. It is a stunning walk with some swimming spots and the chance to see Gazelle and the elusive Arabian Tahr.

What

A long and hot walk for the keen adventurer amongst you. The hike is split over two days with 2 nights camping on deserted and secluded beaches that are only accessible by boat or foot. There are only a few short and steep ascents and descents, however the heat of the day and the humidity of walking by the sea can take its toll. Don’t let that put you off though as it really is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy the rugged coast of Oman. The first day will finish at Ras Abu Daud, a secluded beach only accessible by boat and foot where we enjoy a night under the stars and fantastic swimming. Rising with the sun we have a relaxed breakfast and swim before making tracks along the beach and up over the hills for the next part of our walk that will lead us into Quriyat.

When

We depart Muscat late afternoon and make our way to As Sifah where we have a swim and camp out on the beach for the evening before we start off early the next day for a walk along the coast. The first day often takes about 8 hours to reach camp, and the second about 6 hours. Quriyat is about a 2 hour drive from Muscat once the hike is completed.

Where

Mountains and wadis of Dhofar governorate and Salalah.

What

Khaf Taiq is the largest Sinkhole in Salalah and the region. It is so big, it hard to take in and steep walls seem impossible to descend. Follow your instructor through a hidden route to the bottom of the sinkhole, enjoy stunning views from the best angles and explore the wildlife. The path is steep and exposed at places. A head for heights is definitely required for this trek. We break for lunch at the bottom of the bowl, look for the lost caves and start heading back. The way up makes us work a little bit harder, as we have got to climb all the way back out to where the cars are parked. This adventure is challenging both physically and mentally, but the views and experience are way worth it!

When

This is a full day adventure. Our instructor will pick you up after breakfast and you should be back to the hotel early evening. Get ready for a real challenge and plan a relaxing evening.

Where

On the edge of the impressive Jebel Akhdar mountain also known as Green Mountain, this is a stunning area and also one rich in the recent history of Oman. You can drive to the start point from central Muscat in about two and a half hours.We camp out the night before so that the initial climb is started early before the temperature starts to rise.

What

This is a truly breath taking route, in more ways than one. We start with a steep climb of about 30-40 degrees for the first 500m of ascent. It is a gruelling climb but very much worth it. After this the day ahead levels off nicely and we continue to follow around the edge of wadi Qashah gently climbing as we go. Stopping for lunch in an abandoned village hidden under a rock ledge, we look out and take in the views. The route now continues up towards our camping area for the evening, an old heli pad once used for supply drops before the roads that now cross the mountain were here. The views down into the canyons below and across the deep ravines are incredible. The second day does not disappoint either with more stunning views and abandoned villages along the way.

When

We leave Muscat in the afternoon so we can be on site early evening and relax under the stars. The first day will usually take about 6 to 8 hours to walk including a lunch break up to the campsite. The second day is similar in time, but can often carry on a little longer so another early start is recommended.

Enjoy cooler temperatures on top of the impressive Jebel Akhdar. The area is both stunning and rich in the recent history of Oman. You can drive to the start point from central Muscat in about two and a half hours.

What

Escape the summer in Jabal Akhdar’s luscious gardens.
The First day will take us along the ridge of Wadi Qashah with dramatic views of the valley below. We will trek through abandoned villages, balance on ledges, cross a dam and encounter an absolutely fantastic plateau, covered with a carpet of alpine blossoms. We pause for a moment here to explore this unique flora and fauna with your instructor before continuing the trek towards the cars. We take a quick transfer back to the camp and enjoy a cool evening in the wild, admire some of the most beautiful skies and cosy up in our sleeping bag for the night.
The second day will take us to a different direction altogether and makes us forget we are in the middle of hot GCC summer. We follow a goat trail across the plateau and drop down into Wadi Bani Habib, with its blooming pomegranate trees and beautiful gardens. This is a totally different world! Once we hike our way down to the wadi look around to spot lemons, papayas and even rare walnut trees. Once we have enjoyed enough, we make our way to the cars for a final transfer and our way home.

When

On the first day we aim to reach the start of the trek by 9am. This adventure will take us about 5 hours to complete, with a stop for lunch on one of the ledges. We then make a transfer back to the camp.
The next day we wake up early morning, enjoy our breakfast and get on the trail by 8.30am to make sure we finish early to allow enough time for the drive home. The second trek is similar in time and will take us about 5 hours to complete.

Where

This adventure starts in the Eastern Hajar mountains and traverses from the interior by the Wahiba desert across to the coast.

What

This is a great trek aimed at the more experienced walkers out there. It kicks off with a long day climbing the false summits of the mountains to a height of over 2,000m, before making camp on the baron plateau under the clear skies. Rising early with the sun we enjoy breakfast and gear up for the walk across the plateau before it starts to descend steeply towards wadi Tiwi and the lush green villages below. Arriving at the bottom of the wadi we have a chance to cool our feet in the waters before we make a final push along the trail to the cars for a transfer back to Muscat.

When

With this adventure having such a long and hard first day walking we will be starting the walk at 6am. We really do advise people come down and enjoy a nights camping in the area beforehand to get an early start on the never ending false summits that will eventually take us up to the plateau towards the end of the day. This is often about a 9 hour walking day including lunch and a few breaks along the way. After a nights camping and an early rise again we set off on the second day trail, finishing the final leg of the plateau and commencing the steep descent down into the wadi below. This is often a good 7 hours walking with breaks and lunch to get to the cars.
