Kayak your way up the coast of the Musandam Peninsula for the afternoon to reach the remote village of Kumzar, a village cut off and isolated by its remote and rugged terrain. The dhow will take 3 hours to reach your destination. We will kayak our way up the coast with the goal of 4 -6 hours of kaying to reach the last island, while exploring the fjords of Musandam (on the Khasab side). We will relax after our long day of activity with a sunset Yoga session.
