Travel in Oman

A visit to The Sultanate of Oman means experiencing the land of the Arabian Nights: a country that bridges the cultures of Africa and India with a breathtaking mix of mountains, coastal plains and deserts. Located at the southern tip of the Arabian Peninsula on the shores of the Arabian Sea, the Sultanate of Oman occupies a land area almost twice the size of France, yet has only three million inhabitants. A land of myths and legends, it was the birthplace of Sinbad the Sailor. Oman’s geography offers visitors a selection of rich and varied landscapes: a vast desert covers the majority of the center of the country. High mountain ranges extend along its northern and south-eastern coasts (including Jebel ach-Chams with a peak of 3,009 metres), where you can experience deep canyons, cliffs, fortified villages and oases. Before leaving for the Sultanate of Oman, add two new words to your vocabulary: Dejbel (mountain range) and Wadi (the riverbed that irrigates the lush palm groves). Most cities, including the capital, Muscat, are located in the north of the country. Tourists also visit Oman for its seaside resorts, with superb marine life and corals that attract more and more divers travellers each year.
