Classic aquatic hike, showcasing the beauty of Oman's canyons. Suitable for everyone and a must-see!


  • Hike through a stunning canyon
  • Swim if crystal-clear fresh water pools
  • Learn about Oman's ancient irrigation system and farming.
  • Enjoy local lunch.


This canyoning experience is fun! It is long and quite extreme, but less exhausting with lots of jumps, small abseils, squeezes and ducking through small caves.

The adrenaline kicks in from the start as we abseil a 50m polished wall to get into the canyon, followed by a few more abseils of 50-25m.

Once we are through the first few sections, the rest of the trip is all about swimming, jumping and having fun in the water. Enjoy long clear pools of turquoise water and intricate rock formations as we descend towards the end of the canyon.

We walk out to meet the cars next to the local farms with date palms and gardens all around.
