Adventure to Salalah & Empty Quarter
Best for: Repeat Visitors, Adventure & Off-the-beaten track, Historical
Salalah is located in southern Oman in the dramatically beautiful region of Dhofar. The area is synonymous with the frankincense trade, and you will uncover a land of incense-infused souqs, white-powder beaches, whitewashed forts and dramatic mountain scenery.
The area experiences a summer monsoon, and this turns this corner of the Middle East into a verdant backwater. This is totally at odds with the rest of Oman. Spend two nights exploring the areas to the north and south of Salalah. You will explore ancient fishing villages, picture-perfect white sand beaches, historic forts and tombs.
You then turn inland for an adventure in the remote Empty Quarter. Explore the Atlantis of the Sands – the lost city of Ubar. Spend a night under canvas as you explore wild wadis, the mountain scenery of Jebel Qamar and Wadi Aful where frankincense trees grow wild.
Return to Salalah for another two nights. You will visit the stunning Mirbat Beach before returning home.
