7-tägige Abenteuerreise

If you have a bit more time, why not head to Oman’s far south and explore Salalah – the gulf’s only tropical destination.

SALALAH

Tag 1 – 2

Salalah

Diese Reise beginnt Salalah, Omans zweitgrößter Stadt. Sie ist ein guter Ausgangspunkt für verschiedene Aktivitäten.

Khawr Taqah

West of Taqah, a quaint fishing village, this lagoon (khawr) combines freshwater plants with other varieties that require higher levels of salinity to thrive. The result is an abundance of marine life here, as well as many different types of birds.

Thamrit

The main gateway to Salalah, the town of Thamrit once played an important role in the frankincense trade, bordering the vast Rub Al Khali desert.

Samharam – Khawr Ruri

Set in Dhofar’s largest nature reserve, the ruins of Samharam are part of the Land of Frankincense UNESCO World Heritage Site. The port played an important part in trade over 2000 years ago. Overlooking Khawr Ruri, the history of the settlement and port is showcased at the on-site museum. The Queen of Sheba is said to have once had a palace at Samharam.

Jebel Samhan – Naturschutzgebiet

A special permission is required to visit the Jebel Samham Nature Reserve, which is home to some of the last wild Arabian Leopards and other rare species such as the Arabian Wolf and Striped Hyena. The road leading to the reserve, however, is rewarding on its own right, passing large baobab trees and traditional Jeballi settlements to Jebel Samham’s breath-taking escarpment.

Jalan Bani Bu Ali

Jalan Bani Bu Ali is a town steeped in history with old watchtowers, an old fort and ornate carved wooden doors at every turn. However, it is most famous for the souq, which is open every Friday morning and sells a variety of modern and traditional goods.

Masirah Island

Oman’s largest island can only be reached by ferry from Shannah and is a bird watcher’s paradise as well as an important hatching site for a vast number of migrating sea turtles. It is also a great place to enjoy fishing, as well as many water sports such as kitesurfing and sailing due to the winds close to the shore.

Schifffahrtsmuseum in Sur

Festung Liwa

With its sand coloured walls and towering position above the village of Liwa, Liwa Castle is a stunning attraction well worth the visit. Just north of Sohar, Liwa village is set within green palm plantations, making the castle stand out even more.
