DAY 1

- Lunch - Dinner


      Muttrah fish and vegetables souq

It is a very lively and typical place that is worth a visit. We only rarely see such a choice of fishes : many spieces of breams and groupers, tuna, swordfishes, kingfishes, sharks, squids, crabs, shrimps, and even parrot fishes and other multicolor fishes. Next to the fish market is the vegetable market where you'll find fruits,vegetables, dates, honey, thyme, etc…

- Duration : 1 hours

      Transfer to a fishing port (50 km - 0h 45)


      Snorkeling and Boat Tour

The bay is located only 30 km east from Muscat. There, the mountains fall down to the sea and form a lot of small tiny coves. We take a fisherman's boat and have a tour in the bay to see mangrove, seabirds, and the many sandy coves. Finally we stop in a wonderful beach, have lunch with grilled fish, and enjoy rest on the beach and snorkeling. Among other fishes you will probably see here : surgeon fish, tigerfish, butterfly fish, angelfish, and even sometime, if we are lucky, you'll be able to swim with turtles. ATTENTION : When the sea is rough, this cove is not reachable by boat ; we go to another one which is also nice and suitable for snorkeling, but the seabed is not so rich.

- Duration : 4 hours

      Transfer to a wadi (140 km - 2h)


      Countryside hotel

A very nice place to stay, located in the wadi, next to palm groves and water, with comfortable rooms.

Standard Room

      Aquatic hiking in a wadi of the Eastern Hajar

We start in the last village of the valley. Already at the end of the track is a wonderful pool and a small waterfall. From the cliff a 5 meters jump is possible. We then start the walk. Quickly we find flowing water and walk across large boulders. The canyon then narrows and we have to swim across several pools (it is possible to jump there also). The valley widens a little and narrows again. We swim again and arrive to the end of the canyon : a high waterfal, large pool, and huge boulders…We come back the same way.

We come back the same way. The valley, the walk, and the swim are very beautiful, but the place iis now very touristic and often crowded.

A nice loop hike in a beautiful valley with a stream flowing all-year-long, a huge palm grove on terraces all along it, villages, and impressive cliffs. There several possible itineraries and one of them is to go through a short but very beautiful canyon ; it implies to swim, so we have to adapt equipment in advance(take nothing that doesn't support water or put it in a waterproof bag).

We then walk up to a watch tower from which we have the best view over the city.
