Oman is an adventurer‘s paradise with a vast array of outdoor activities on offer. Here are some of the thrilling experiences you can look forward to when visiting Oman:

Mountain Trekking

Oman’s Al Hajar Mountains offer incredible trekking opportunities. Jebel Shams, the highest mountain in the country, provides challenging hikes with breathtaking views over Oman’s “Grand Canyon.”

Dune Bashing & Desert Camping

Take a 4×4 ride through the dunes of the Wahiba Sands for an adrenaline-pumping experience. For an immersive desert experience, spend a night under the stars in a Bedouin tent.

Hot Air Ballooning

Experience Oman from a different perspective with Royal Balloon. This is a truly unique way to take in the dramatic desert landscapes and the towering peaks of the mountains.

Sea Kayaking & Snorkeling

With its long coastline, Oman offers plenty of water sports. Kayak in the calm waters of Bandar Khayran or the fjords of Musandam. For underwater adventurers, the Daymaniyat Islands offer excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities.


Oman is home to some incredible caves, like Majlis al Jinn, one of the largest underground caves in the world, and Al Hoota Cave, which has a subterranean lake.

Off-road Driving

The rugged terrain of Oman is perfect for off-road driving. Explore the wadis, mountains, and desert tracks with a 4×4. Wadi Bani Awf, with its rough trails and stunning landscapes, is a popular choice for this adventure.

For a traditional Arabian experience, embark on a camel trek through the desert. This is a great way to appreciate the beauty of the desert at a slower pace.
