What we will do
  • We set off from Muscat in our 4x4 vehicles and head for the Wadi Al Arbeieen. After just a few kilometres, we already find ourselves immersed in an almost lunar landscape where we are bewildered and captivated by mountains with a surreal appearance in a wealth of colours.
  • We leave the tarmacked road and drive along an off-road trail to the Wadi Al Arbeieen, a magnificent canyon with high sides and lush vegetation where the river has created incredibly transparent blue-green lakes and pools, begging to be photographed.
  • Near the Wadi we also visit a typical Omani village where the simple rhythms of daily life have not been affected by modernity: its inhabitants are always polite and welcoming and the wonderful children approach us with their disarming smiles.
  • At the end of our visit to the village we return to our 4x4 adventure, experiencing the excitement of "water bashing" (fording the stream), which is not difficult but great fun.
  • Next, we head for a place where those wishing to swim can do so, surrounded by a natural amphitheatre of rare beauty and immersed in an imposing natural environment.
  • At the end of this relaxing break we travel along an off-road trail where we can admire breathtaking scenery: narrow canyons alternate with lunar landscapes characterized by volcanic rocks with colours ranging from grey to red and from lava black to ochre pink.
  • We then arrive at the village of Mazara, with the ancient ruins of its castle that dominate the surrounding valley.
  • We continue towards the Wadi Dayqah where a dam forms a magnificent lake completely surrounded by the mountains.
  • During the return journey we travel a few more kilometres off-road: the excitement and intense memories of the tour will stay with us for days to come.
