The only way to reach this beautiful remote village is by boat, so we make a weekend of it by exploring the fjords of Musandam (on the Khasab side) and snorkeling and hiking. You will take a dhow and head to the remote, northernmost village of Kumzar, where you will get to meet people that speak their own language and are completely isolated from the rest of the world. The Kumzar mountain hike is not an easy one, so if you choose not to complete it, you will have the option of staying in the village.
Thursday night’s accommodation will be at the Eco-Venture Dormitory in Ras Al Khaimah and Friday’s will be camping on a beautiful beach on a remote island. All meals are provided. This trip is family friendly and suitable for children aged 10 and above.Book Now
