The Sultanate of Oman is a fabulous land full of surprises, a splendid example of original Arabia from the Straits of Hormuz to the southern Dhofar region. Up until the 1970’s, the third largest country in the Arabian Peninsula was only accessible by various caravan routes. It has an abundance of mysterious desert towns and splendid palaces. Our journey begins on the northern coast of the Gulf of Oman.

The white city of Sohar is the historic harbor of the Islamic world and the ‘Gateway to China.'  Sinbad the Sailor is said to have lived there in the 8th century and after he spent his father’s inheritance it is believed that he traveled to Baghdad to seek his fortune there. The city is still guarded by the white Sohar Fort, a mighty four story building that dates back to the 14th century.

The Nakhal Fortress is located on a rock at the foot of the mountain of Jebel Akhdar. Both the walls and rocks form a complete architectural whole. Nakhal is the home of the Ya'rub Tribe that came into power in 1624 and ruled over Oman for 120 years.

Until the 12th century, Nizwa was the capital of the Desert State of Oman. Even today, this oasis city and trading metropolis has lost none of its former importance and the former residential complex of the massive fortress is open to the public. The fortress once fulfilled an important role in protecting the country’s interior and now its lavish and well-restored rooms radiate tranquility.

The mighty Jabrin Fort is one of the most beautiful castles of its kind in the Sultanate of Oman, formerly the famous ‘Land of Incense.'  Its massive, towering and eye-catching pewter walls date back to the 17th century.

Until the middle of the 20th century, Abri had the reputation of being a centre for highwaymen and robbers, favored for its good strategic location. The booty that came from plundered caravans and the settlements of various tribes was sold at auction in the souks.

The Sultanate of Oman is a treasure trove of rarities. Its 12,000 year old history is visible throughout the entire country and the beauty of the mysterious Arabian Peninsula is a truly captivating experience.
