No matter what the season, you can count on lots of water, swimming and some very unique hiking through banana plantations and villages, unlike any other place in Oman. This is a refreshing and not only a unique hiking experience, but a cultural one where we get the opportunity to meet and mingle with the locals.

Accomodation is in an Omani farmhouse. You will sleep on provided air mattresses in sleeping bags in air conditioned rooms.  The farmhouse has running water (toilets and hot showers) but it is sleeping on the floor, with other people, in a variety of locations throughout the property, so you will need a sleeping bag and mat. If you want more privacy, you can sleep in your own room, or on the roof, or in a tent somewhere on the property.

Saturday will include a Muscat tour of the Traditional Souk with Omani Ice cream treats just before heading back to airport and take off back to Dubai.

You can also come from Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Bahrain, Riyadh or Jeddah.
