Home > Trip Planner > 3 Day Adventure Trip

Whether an extended weekend, stopover or short city break, three days in Oman can deliver lasting memories and build anticipation for your next visit.

Day 1

Daymaniyat Islands

The Daymaniyat Islands are a beautiful marine reserve off the coast of Muscat. There is nothing better than spending the day exploring coral reefs and watching turtle and colourful fish swim past in the azure waters of the islands. The island is also a host to migratory and indigenous birds. The islands are a great location for camping, with the peak camping season being from October to February.

Seeb Souq

Located along the coastal road in Seeb, this souq is a sprawling market selling anything from stunning traditional jewellery and luxurious perfume oils, to livestock and locally grown fruits.

Al Ansab Wetlands

Set in the middle of Muscat, the Al Ansab Wetlands are a protected area and an ornithologists dream. Over 293 species of birds stop over at different times throughout the year, with over 80 resident species.

Camping – Fins

Only a short drive from Bimmah Sinkhole, Fins is a coastal village mainly known for its hidden beaches and coves framed by white sands, turquoise waters and the Al Hajar Mountains as backdrop. Perfect for a memorable camping experience.

Oil and Gas Exhibition Centre

The Oman Oil and Gas Exhibition Centre highlights the journey of the discovery, extraction, and use of fossil fuels in Oman through interactive displays.

Day 2

A’Sharqiyah Sands

Located about a three-hour drive from Muscat, the Sharqiyah Sands are a beautiful expanse of desert. This region in Oman is very popular for desert safaris, quad biking and more. What better way to explore the desert than on the back of a camel or in the comfort of a 4WD vehicle. End the day by setting up a campsite or booking a desert camp where a night under the glittering night sky is always a special experience.

Wadi Tiwi

Not far from Wadi Shab is Wadi Tiwi, which is lined by small villages and date and banana plantations. Although the wadi can be accessed by car, it is best explored on foot, with a two-day hike possible across the mountains to Wadi Bani Khalid.

Sharqiyah Sands

The Sharqiyah Sands allows visitors to experience the desert first hand, with dunes reaching as far as the horizon and the area teeming with wildlife. Dune bashing is one of the many favourite activities for visitors to the Sharqiyah Sands.

Bidiyah

Located 233km from Muscat, Bidiyah is a collection of villages at the edge of the Sharqiyah Sands. Home to Bedouin people from the desert, it is the perfect place to experience traditional camel or horse races or visit its famous Eid market.

Masirah Island

Oman’s largest island can only be reached by ferry from Shannah and is a bird watcher’s paradise as well as an important hatching site for a vast number of migrating sea turtles. It is also a great place to enjoy fishing, as well as many water sports such as kitesurfing and sailing due to the winds close to the shore.

Day 3

Jebel Al Akhdar

As one of Oman’s highest points, Jebel Al Akhdar offers a day of fun exploration in a truly unique spot in the Arabian Peninsula. Enjoy the cool climate up in the mountains. Jebel Al Akhdar has numerous hiking trails, some passing mountain villages, others through wadis and abandoned settlements which overlook a spectacular landscape of dramatic terrace, peaks, gorges and wadis.

Hallaniyat Islands

Le megattere e altre specie marine hanno reso l’acqua che circonda le isole Hallaniyat. Questi, insieme a diversi relitti storici che punteggiano il fondo del mare, offrono grandi opportunità per tutti gli appassionati di immersioni.

Wadi Al Abyad

A haven for off-roading and geology enthusiasts, Wadi Al Abyad is about one and a half hour’s drive from Muscat and known for its turquoise water pools and stunning geological features. Interestingly, some of the area’s largest sand dunes can be found nearby.

Al Fizayah Beach

Located west of Salalah, past Mughsayl Beach, a hairpin road leads to the stunning white sand of Fizayah Beach.

Razat-bron

Razat Spring is especially rich in vegetation and water, making it a preferred picnic spot throughout the year.
