Experience

The Musandam Khasab Overnight Dhow Cruise and Mountain Safari is the perfect getaway package to indulge in nature and take part in some relaxing activities. Your experience begins with a transfer to Khasab, a city nicknamed as the ‘Norway of Arabia’ because of its beautiful fjords and mountainscapes. Leave to Khor Sham on a full day cruise onboard an Omani wooden dhow. See firsthand why Khor Sham is the most popular location for Dhow cruises as you sail past tiny fishing villages and the famous telegraph island. The chances of spotting dolphins swimming alongside your dhow are high. The boat will dock after lunch for you to enjoy activities like fishing, snorkelling or swimming in the azure waters of this picturesque cove surrounded by mountains. After an early BBQ dinner and some leisure time, retire for the night on board your open-air dhow. Wake up for an early breakfast on the dhow and return to the harbour. Climb on a 4WD and begin the accent to Jebel Harim. Pass through moon-shaped canyons, limestone formations and fields dotted with livestock. After driving through scenic routes visit old villages and observe the Bait Al Qufl (stone house), which operated as a safe and was built in a style of architecture unique to Musandam region. Drop by the lush Al Khalidiya park teeming with acacia trees. En route for lunch take in the stunning view from Khor Najd. Fresh fruits, soft drinks, tea, coffee and water will be offered during your Musandam Khasab Overnight Dhow Cruise and Mountain Safari.
