Adventure and Sports Cultural City Tour

The Sultanate of Oman is a tiny country in the Middle East that, for the most part, nobody has heard of. From stunning, secluded beaches and adventurous off-roading to busy souks and fertile remote valleys, a trip to Oman will provide calming respite from everyday life.

Day 1 - Arrival

- Arrival at Muscat Airport and drive to Wadi Mistal and your camp for the next few days. Wadi Mistal opens up into what is known as Ghubrah Bowl, where the views are spectacular.
- You will arrive at the camp and help to set-up the tents.
- “Ice-breaker session” with team challenges. This will give you an ideal opportunity to relax and get to know your staff that will be with you for the week.

Day 2 - Outdoor activities

- Take in some land-based activities in and around Ghubrah Bowl. We will divide into two smaller groups and participate in climbing, abseiling and mountain biking.
The group will be led by instructors who are qualified in the UK and have had vast experience in working with groups of children in the outdoors.
- After an exciting day the group will return back to camp for dinner and a well-earned rest.

Day 3 - Outdoor activities & trek

- Today the activity groups will rotate.
- In the late afternoon it may be possible to take in a small trek through one of the villages perched high up in the crater. The village is a lush plantation rich in fruit trees, almonds, grapes, pomegranates and date palms.
The views from here are also fantastic and the people is very friendly. It’s an ideal opportunity to see the local culture and how these people live in the mountains.
