Oman

Experience one of the oldest civilisations in the Arabian Peninsula on a luxury holiday in Oman.

The Sultanate of Oman is a burgeoning tourism destination whose stunning cultural landmarks include hundreds of forts, castles, and towers. Its landscapes will not disappoint: the country boasts more than 1,000 kilometres of coastline, vast sandy deserts, and impressive mountain ranges.

Oman is a country unlike any other in the region, and our team of Abercrombie & Kent travel experts will ensure you experience the very best from Arabia’s glittering up-and-comer. The country is a must-see destination, and features on our around the world journey with Abercrombie & Kent founder Geoffrey Kent.

Watch turtles come ashore to lay eggs on the beaches of Ras al Jinz. Follow in the footsteps of Thesiger and capture the stillness of the Wahiba Sands. Dine under a canopy of desert stars. Witness wooden dhows carefully handcrafted by local artisans. Shop for traditional khanjars and locally-produced frankincense at Mutrah Souk.

All this and more awaits on your luxury trip through Oman.

Best Time to Travel to Oman

Travel between September and April to enjoy comfortable conditions well suited to days spent sightseeing outdoors. Visitors planning a holiday in January are encouraged to take in the Muscat Festival, the country’s biggest event showcasing Oman’s unique Arabian cultural heritage. The country’s National Day takes place in November; people join together to celebrate Oman’s independence from Portugal with plenty of food and fireworks displays.
