Coffee with fresh dates in Oman

Like perfume for women, incense is for Oman. The land, shrouded in a cloud of incense, is like a strongly perfumed lady. You can smell the scent before you see it: the country with the small sandy villages, hidden between the date plantations. The country with clear blue wadis, which bring the dry environment back to life. The deep valleys with abandoned fortresses and a lonely mountain goat. The peaks of the Al Hajar Mountains, which disappear into the clouds. The thousands of sea turtles that land here to lay their eggs on the beach. And further inland, even more sand. Endless desert dunes here provide a perfect course for camel racing, the national sport.

Surrounded by the rapidly modernizing gulf states, the Sultanate of Oman simply remains itself. And so white beaches remain pristine white, just like the clothes of the Omanis. Shopping is also still done in the souk, where old daggers are displayed next to the dates. When the deal is closed after some negotiation, it's time for Arabic coffee with fresh dates.

INSPIRATION FOR Oman

EXPERIENCE OmanWITH UNTAMED

Forts and settlements

The mountains behind the ancient capital Nizwa seem impenetrable. Yet even in this city in the 17th century a fortress was built. The round tower can be seen from afar and still exudes authority.

Birkat al Mauz

Battered and run down, but no less beautiful. Ruins in small villages deserve at least as much attention during your trip as the gleaming structures in the big cities.

Muscat

The Persian carpet tickles gently under the feet of visitors. The Grand Mosque stands in stark contrast to the large shopping centre just down the road. Here no soft carpet, but smooth polished tiles, which visitors shine towards.

Beach

The white beach looks deserted. Staring at the Indian Ocean, the world seems filled only with rushing waves. But if you are not afraid of sand between the toes, you will see more. An eagle, a pelican, turtles and flamingos, you are certainly not alone.

Authentic culture

The smell of boswellia circles through the narrow alleys of the souk. For hundreds of years, this smell has gripped the country. And together with the smell, the tradition penetrates every corner of the country.

Desert

The House of the Bedouins. Deep in the desert, traditions persist. Guests are welcomed with a cup of camel milk.

Turtles

In the middle of the night, far out of town, earth-dark. Yet this is the best time to see them: the green sea turtles.

Market town Nizwa

Bil on buttock cows parade across the square in the centre of Nizwa. The weekly market is a photogenic spectacle. But also the forts around the town produce beautiful pictures.

Salalah and Dhofar

Wadi's, little oases in seas of sand. They're not always easy to find. The trip there is also sometimes a challenge. But once in the south of Oman, the greenery is not to be missed. Here you are in one big green oasis.

Al Hajar Mountains

In the mountains of Al Hajar there is more than just stone. The edges of this rugged mountain range are soft: here lies the town of Nakhl, built around a hot spring. Surrounded by waving date palms.
