Day-to-Day

DAY 1 Khasab

Welcome to Khasab, unofficially dubbed the “Norway of Arabia” for its position at the tip of the Musandam Peninsula and its incredible fjords. After you have a chance to settled in at your hotel, jump aboard a 4X4 for a half-day mountain safari. You’ll drive to Jebel Harim, the highest mountain in the area, and visit local villages along the way. On your way back, enjoy a visit to the incredible acacia trees in Birkhat Khalidiya Park, which remain green all year round. You’ll stay overnight in the Atana Musandam Hotel.

DAY 2 Khasab

Spend the day cruising the Musandam Fjords, a spectacular journey with visits to small fishing villages and the famous telegraphic island. Enjoy lunch on board your boat, and spend some time swimming and snorkeling in the turquoise waters - if you’re lucky, you’ll even spot a dolphin or two! At the end of the day, you will return to your hotel.

DAY 3 Departure

Spend the day exploring Khasab, including the former Portuguese fort and the prehistoric rock paintings at Wadi Tawi. Later, you will be transferred to Khasab airport for your onwards journey.
