Northern Oman - Oman
Steeped in history and spectacular geography, Northern Oman is the cultural heart of the country offering the finest forts in Oman and some of the most evocative souks. The Hajar mountains, defined by deep canyons, cliffs, high mountain villages and green oases, rise to over 4000m and dominate the northern region of Oman.
The arid mountains seemingly devoid of life, are laced with bursts of green terraced gardens of date, rose, and pomegranate clinging precariously to cliff faces, alongside ancient mud houses. Take time to explore ancient villages of Misfat Al Abriyeen and Balad Sayt offering a unique opportunity to step back in time and catch a glimpse into traditional Omani way of life.
