At the northernmost tip of Oman, separated from the rest of the country by a large swathe of UAE territory, lies the Musandam peninsula, a remote region of dramatic mountains and sheer-sided khawrs (fjords), popularly described as the “Norway of Arabia” and widely considered to be the most scenically spectacular in Oman. Khawrs created by fragmented rock stretching claw-like into the sea and massive overshadowing cliffs towering above are magnificently reflected in the water below.
This is a few hours drive from Dubai, but includes border crossing and requires passport.
The trip starts early in the morning from Dubai. It passes through the sandy dunes of various hues. The landscape changes suddenly once your trip reaches to Ras Al Khaimah. The onward journey is absolutely breathtaking. We drive through the strikingly carved limestone mountains of Hajar that seem to rise from the sea like monoliths. The road trip runs along the beautiful coastal line. This journey also offers plenty of scenic photo opportunities. It reaches the Khasab harbour after a few hours of drive to an awaiting, beautifully appointed, traditional Omani Dhow.
We board the Dhow at Khasab for a full-day cruise to the spectacular “Fjords of Musandam”. You will see the quaint villages during the cruise that are very old. The dhow will be anchored at the famous Telegraph Island, where you can swim and snorkel in the pleasant clear waters. Lunch, refreshments and fruit are served on board. There is also a possibility to see dolphins following the dhow along the way.
Once back on the land, we will drive back home via the same scenic costal route.
