Journey Itinerary

Day 1 Dubai - Khasab

Upon arrival at Dubai International Airport, you will be met and transferred across the Omani border to Khasab, on the beautiful Musandam Peninsula. Jutting out into the Strait of Hormuz at the entrance to the Persian Gulf, is the most northern tip of the Sultanate of Oman, separated from the rest of Oman by a thin strip of land belonging to the United Arab Emirates. The Musandam is defined by rugged coastal mountains cut by the dark waters of the deep water fjords that earn the peninsula its nickname ‘Norway of the Middle East’.

Day 2: Khasab
