Kamperen – Fins

Huis > Muscat > Kamperen – Fins

a coastal village

Het kustdorp Fins ligt op slechts een klein eindje rijden van het Bimmah Sinkhole, en is voornamelijk bekend vanwege de verborgen stranden en baaien met wit zand en turquoise blauwe wateren en het Al Hajargebergte op de achtergrond. Perfect voor een onvergetelijke kampeerervaring.

It’s legal to wild camp in Oman. And, done responsibly, it’s one of the most rewarding ways to take in the country’s varied terrain. Fiona McAuslan pitched her tent in the mountains of Jebel Akhdar – and found some surprises along the way.

Of all the things I expected to find wild camping on an Omani mountainside, an invitation to dinner was not on the list. But finding the unexpected is what happens when you pitch a tent 3000ft high in the Jebel Akhdar mountains.

Their beauty is wild and austere. By day, you can see for miles and miles across hundreds of dragon-teeth ridges – but we had arrived after dark, following a drive along a dirt track with a hair-raising gradient. In the flickering glow of a single camping light, the mountains now appeared inimical and inhospitable.
