Commonly overshadowed by its wealthier, more ostentatious neighbours, Oman has slowly but surely been finding its way onto the tourist map, and it’s easy to see why.
Our Oman adventure found us hiking spectacular mountain ranges, exploring the country’s many fortresses, diving a shipwreck in the Gulf, catching mesmerising desert sunsets, swimming through lush wadis, and pushing our 4WD to the limit on some incredible mountain passes.
With so many seriously beautiful places in Oman, it’s tough to know where to start when planning your visit.
That’s why we’ve picked out some of our favourite Oman photos to give you a taste of the places, sights and highlights that shouldn’t be missed.
