Oman has been popular among the tourists as a destination ideal for dune bashing, thanks to the publicity given by media around the world. But there are some other adventures too that you could try out in this desert environment.
Adventure seekers would love passing sand valleys, pools and lush green springs in their 4*4 vehicles and feel the dune bashing excitement for real. If you stay at a Muscat hotel, remember, that this capital city also has places to engage in dune bashing, and it’s not just the Wahiba sands.
Hikers love this North-eastern part of Oman because of the Hajar Mountains. This is ideal for those who love canyoning too. The canyoning experience you get here is full of adventure and a must-try activity for sure!
Desert hot air balloon rides
From the Al Falaj Hotel Muscat where you stay, if you plan to have a desert safari, a hot air balloon ride will give you a different experience which is fresh and exciting. It’s all about getting a splendid bird’s eye view of sand dunes, trains of camels and the campsites there.
The ideal place to go sailing in Oman is Salalah, the capital city of the southern province of Dhofar. The Arabian sea surrounding you will set the perfect background for sailing and this is an adventure all in itself!
