The Ultimate 2 Week Oman Road Trip Itinerary (2024)

Oman isn't a very well-known country and there aren't many tourists visiting Oman. In fact, when I announced we would be making an Oman road trip many people asked: why, isn't Oman just a big desert?

Having explored Oman for 2 weeks by car I can safely say it most definitely is not. Oman is beautiful and has a huge variety of landscapes!

We drove on adventurous dirt roads through steep mountains, swam in crystal-clear Wadi pools, and camped at deserted beaches.

Why you should visit Oman

The sultanate of Oman is an amazing country with lots of beautiful places waiting to be explored. From its stunning beaches to its spectacular mountains, there is something for everyone.

The culture is vibrant and unique, and there are plenty of attractions, activities, and experiences to enjoy. Whether you're looking for an action-packed adventure or a peaceful getaway, Oman is sure to have something to offer.

Some of the best activities in Oman include:

There's also a wide range of local activities like camel racing, sailing, and sand surfing. There are plenty more reasons to visit Oman.

Is Oman safe to travel?

Also, for anyone thinking Oman must be dangerous because it's in the Middle East: Oman is a very safe country! We wild camped for 11 nights and I never felt unsafe.

In fact, the Omanis are some of the nicest people I've met during our travels.

We were invited for Karak (traditional Omani tea) and dates at Bimmah Sinkhole, guided to the most beautiful secluded pool in Wadi Tiwi by a friendly 18-year-old boy and always greeted by the local people when we were exploring one of the small villages on foot.

Twice we were given a ride to our hotel when we didn't have our car (in Muscat and Sohar).

When we did have our car and stopped at the side of the road to check the map, a friendly Omani always pulled over next to us and asked where we wanted to go or if we needed some help.

So yes, Oman is very safe and the people are really nice, welcoming, and always happy to help.

Oman travel tips and things to know

When is the best time to visit Oman

The best time to visit Oman is between November and April. We visited in March and temperatures were perfect (around 25 degrees Celsius), not too hot and not too cold.

While summer is scorching hot in the north of Oman, July-September is a great time to visit Dhofar, in the south of Oman, as it's monsoon season (called Khareef).

I know that sounds odd, but it doesn't rain continuously and the water turns the barren mountain slopes lush and green.

Do I need a visa for Oman?

Yes, you probably do. There is a visa for 10 days (which costs 5 OMR) and one for 30 days (which costs 20 OMR).

You can apply for the visa online, more information can be found on the official Oman website.

What language do they speak in Oman?

People in Oman speak Arabic, but many people (especially those working in tourism) also speak English.

We never had any trouble making ourselves clear. And as I mentioned above, the Omani people are incredibly friendly and always happy to help!

What should I wear in Oman?

I mostly wore long loose-fitted pants and a t-shirt, though on some hikes where we didn't come across (m)any people I wore shorts.

I always carried a scarf with me to cover up when needed. Oman is a Muslim country and it's important to dress respectfully.

The Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque in Muscat, Oman

Important things to keep in mind when camping and driving in Oman

Roads (paved and dirt roads)

The paved roads in Oman are in excellent condition and very quiet once you get out of Muscat. Nevertheless, we always kept the speed limits (even though none of the Omanis do).

The dirt roads are also well-maintained and we didn't experience any difficulty navigating these roads.

Even in the middle of nowhere villages are usually signposted, though I do recommend using a map (I use this app) and an excellent off-road guide (more information below).

On this website, you can download several Oman off-road tracks as well.

Wild camping in Oman

Wild camping is perfectly legal in Oman but please please please clean up your trash.

Make sure you leave your campsite as you found it (or better) so wild camping will remain legal. In New Zealand, wild camping used to be allowed too, but then too many tourists didn't give a shit about cleaning up after themselves and now heavy fines are in place for wild camping in NZ.

Sorry for this little rant but I find it important to keep the environment clean and it would be a shame to see wild camping in Oman banned as well.

Important: never camp in a wadi, there is always the danger of a flash flood.

Prepare well and remember to stock up

Make sure you have a full tank of petrol, plenty of water, and some food when heading into the mountains.

In the middle of nowhere, there are no coffee shops selling breakfast, lunch, or dinner so you have to be somewhat self-sufficient.

Type of car

For off-road driving, you need a 4WD. The dirt roads are good but believe me, they are not meant for 2WD cars.

In the table below you can find all the places we visited and read if you need a 2WD car, a 4×4, or no car at all.

For me, the amazing off-road routes made our Oman trip an unforgettable experience, so I highly recommend renting a 4WD.

Best things to do in Oman

Best hotels in Oman

While we wild-camped most of the time during our Oman road trip, we also stayed at several hotels. Because there are virtually no official campgrounds in Oman, there are no facilities either.

That's why after wild camping for a couple of days, we would book a hotel to clean up, charge our equipment and do a bit of laundry.

More information about these hotels and all our free camping spots in Oman can be found in this post.

Mutrah Hotel☆☆7.9US$40Click hereClick here
Bahla Hotel Apartments☆☆☆7.7US$45Click hereClick here
Al Ayjah Plaza Hotel☆☆7.3US$51Click hereClick here
Desert Nights Camp☆☆☆☆☆8.8US$171Click hereClick here
Radisson Blu Sohar☆☆☆☆☆7.9US$143Click hereClick here

Note: in Oman, hotel rates vary considerably throughout the year. During high season, from November until the end of March, hotel prices are much higher than during the low (because scorching hot) season, which runs from April until October.

Therefore, the prices mentioned above are a rough indication of the price per night to help you compare the different options. Use ‘click here' to see the latest prices on Agoda and Booking and book ahead to get the best deal.

Oman 2 week road trip itinerary: day-by-day

Road trip day 1: preparing for our 2-week itinerary around Oman

Itinerary: Muscat (Mark Tours) – Lulu hypermarket – Sultan Center Al Qurum – Campsite Wadi Al Khoud

Practical information before you hit the road

Our car

We got a complimentary car from Mark Tours, an award-winning and well-known tour operator in Oman (check the Oman Lonely Planet).

The car was a white Nissan Xterra, a kick-ass 4WD jeep that took us everywhere! I had not driven a 4×4 before, but because it was an automatic transmission car, driving couldn't have been easier.

Mark Tours Oman Nissan Xterra
Camping gear

We bought a tent and 2 sleeping bags at the Lulu hypermarket. The tent was 12.9OR and the sleeping bags were 8.9OR a piece. We also bought a couple of plastic cups and 2 spoons.

At The Sultan Center, they also sell a lot of camping gear, a little more upmarket and a bit more expensive. We bought a very compact stove, gas, and a small pan. We used this to boil hot water and make tea, coffee, porridge, and noodle soup, very convenient!

Camping in Oman
Off-road guide

We got this excellent Oman off-road guidebook that was an absolute lifesaver! In the book, you find 37 off-road routes throughout Oman.

Each route comes with satellite photos, recommended campsites, information about the highlights, and important advice about the road (steep/narrow road, risk of flash floods, etc).

I highly recommend getting this book (or a similar one) for your trip to Oman. It not only made our trip a lot easier but also brought us to places we would not have found on our own!

Note: unfortunately the newest edition of this off-road guidebook is currently unavailable, alternatively, you can find several Oman off-road routes here.

In the itinerary below I refer to the numbers of the routes from the book. However, you can also find all the places we visited on the map I created.

Off-road guide Oman must buy for your road trip

Road trip day 2: Nakhal Fort, Wadi Al Abyad, Wadi Sahtan and Madruj

Itinerary: Campsite Wadi Al Khoud – Nakhal Fort – Wadi Al Abyad (route 20) – Wadi Sahtan and Madruj (route 16) – Campsite Wadi Sahtan

Nakhal Fort

Nakhal Fort in Oman

An impressive and large fort built in the 17th century and beautifully renovated.

Wadi Al Abyad

Wadi Al Abyad in Oman an easy off-road route

Our first off-road route! It's not a difficult route and it was perfect to get acquainted with the car and build some confidence driving a 4WD and driving off-road.

Wadi Sahtan and Madruj (route 16)

Wadi Sahtan Oman beautiful road and campsite

A beautiful route through the mountains! Madruj is a tiny village at the end of the road, we found a nice campsite just before the village with an amazing view of the Hajar mountains and over the valley.

Road trip day 3: Little Snake Canyon and Wadi Bani Awf

Itinerary: Campsite Wadi Sahtan – Little Snake Canyon – Wadi Bani Awf (route 17) – Campsite near Al Hamra

Little Snake Canyon

Little Snake Canyon Oman Wadi Bani Awf off-road trip

We hiked up Little Snake Canyon, surrounded by steep cliffs on both sides towering high above us. Standing in the gorge and craning my neck to see the sky made me feel tiny…

Off-roading through Wadi Bani Awf

Wadi Bani Awf most beautiful off-road trip Oman

This road was absolutely spectacular! We drove up a steep pass; the higher we got, the more incredible the views.

There were many amazing off-road routes we drove in Oman but this one was my favorite! The route takes a couple of hours, make sure you have enough water and petrol.

Road trip day 4: the Jebel Shams mountains

Itinerary: Campsite near Al Hamra – Jebel Shams (route 5) – Balcony Walk (route 7) – Bahla Hotel Apartments

Jebel Shams (route 5)

Standing 3000 meters tall Jebel Shams is the highest mountain in Oman. Besides that, the Jebel Shams area is hauntingly beautiful and is also referred to as the Grand Canyon of Oman. Very impressive indeed…

The Balcony Walk (route 7)

Jebel Shams viewpoint Oman Grand Canyon of Oman Middle East Wadi Ghul

A 3,5km trail leading along the edges of steep cliffs that drop down for hundreds of meters. Pay attention to where you are going, even though that's difficult with views like this!

Road trip day 5: from Bahla to Wadi Damm

Itinerary: Bahla Hotel Apartments – Bahla Fort – Campsite Wadi Damm

Bahla Fort

Bahla Fort UNESCO Heritage Site Oman Bahla town

A beautiful fortress (a UNESCO World Heritage Site!) was built in the 13th century. It's not just a castle, there is an entire town situated within the walls of the fort.

Road trip day 6: hidden paradise in Wadi Damm

Itinerary: Campsite Wadi Damm (route 4) – Hike to Misfah – Wadi Damm – Beehive Tombs Al Ayn – Nizwa Souq‎ – Campsite Jebel Akhdar (route 14)

Hike to Misfah

Wadi Damm Oman hike to Misfeh

We only did half of this hike because we wanted to hike in Wadi Damm as well and we wanted to drive all the way to Jebel Akhdar and were not sure how long that would take.

The hike started right behind our campsite but it can be a bit difficult to find the start of the trail. Just climb up the rocks next to the campsite and look for a small goats trail.

This is not a well-trodden path so a sense of direction is needed. In general, as long as you keep walking east you'll be heading in the right direction (and west if you want to return to your car.

On the plus side, we didn't see a single soul during the entire hike. In fact, we didn't see anyone since driving up to our campsite the night before!

Wadi Damm

Wadi Damm paradise on earth hidden waterfall and pool Oman

This perfect place took my breath away, it's a beautiful wadi in the middle of the mountains…

We hiked up Wadi Damm for about 40 minutes and climbed down to this perfect secluded crystal clear pool with a waterfall and mossy curtain. It was almost impossible to leave this hidden paradise.

Beehive Tombs Al Ayn

Beehive Tombs Al Ayn Oman UNESCO Heritage site Middle East

These tombs are ancient, stemming from the 3rd millennium B.C. It's a UNESCO Heritage site and an interesting place to visit.

Nizwa Souq

Nizwa Souq Oman arts and crafts

In Nizwa you can explore one of the oldest souks in Oman and a great place to do some souvenir shopping.

Nizwa Fort

Nizwa Fort is one of Oman's oldest (and largest) forts and one of the most visited national monuments.

We really wanted to visit Nizwa Fort but unfortunately, we arrived in the late afternoon and couldn't fit it into our Oman itinerary.

That being said, if you've got time, I highly recommend visiting this imposing structure!

Practical travel tip: there's a Lulu supermarket a couple of kilometers south of Nizwa, where we replenished our supplies before heading into the Jebel Akhdar mountain range.

Road trip day 7: the Jebel Akhdar mountains

Itinerary: Campsite Jebel Akhdar (route 14) – Village Walk (route 15) – Campsite in the desert near Al Mintirib

Village Walk (route 15)

Village Walk Jebel Akhdar Ash Shuraiqa Saiq Oman

A very nice 8 km walk (4km to Saiq and 4km back) leading along a network of falaj (a very ingenious Omani irrigation system) and through the little village of Ash Shuraiqa.

While I liked the Jebel Akhdar plateau it didn't impress me as much as the Jebel Shams area.

Driving in Jebel Akhdar is a lot more restricted: you pass a police checkpoint at the start where you have to show your car insurance, and driver's license and prove you have a 4WD.

On the plateau all the roads are paved and there are traffic signs and street lights everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, Jebel Akhdar is still worth visiting (we are talking beautiful, more beautiful, most beautiful here) but it is less adventurous than Jebel Shams, Wadi Bani Awf, and the Eastern Hajar mountains.

If you don't want to do (steep) off-road routes but do want to drive up to 2300 meters and have amazing views Jebel Akhdar is perfect for you! 

Road trip day 8: Wadi Bani Khalid and Sur

Itinerary: Campsite in the desert near Al Mintirib – Wadi Bani Khalid (route 32) – Sur/Al Ayjeh – Al Ayjeh Plaza Hotel

Wadi Bani Khalid

Wadi Bani Khalid Oman oasis in the desert

Perhaps the most famous wadi of Oman and a very beautiful one indeed! This is how I drew an oasis when I was a child: green palm trees around a perfect pool…

Sur and Al Ayjeh

Sur and Al Ayjeh coastal village Oman Middle East lighthouse

A lovely coastal village! I particularly liked Al Ayjeh with its charming lighthouse, whitewashed houses, and traditional dhows (boats) in the harbor.

Fun fact: between Sur and Al Ayjeh you find the only suspension bridge in Oman.

Road trip day 9: coastal drive and Ras Al Jinz turtle reserve

Itinerary: Al Ayjeh Plaza Hotel – Ras Al Jinz and Ras Al Hadd (route 31) – Campsite near Qalhat 

Ras Al Jinz and Ras Al Hadd (route 31)

Ras al Jinz Oman coastal drive

Ras Al Jinz beach is famous for the turtle reserve, 4 types of marine turtles lay their eggs here (green turtles, Loggerhead turtles, Hawksbill turtles, and Olive Ridley turtles).

The best time to see them nest is between July and September, while September to November is the best time to see both the laying as well as the hatching of the turtle eggs.

We didn't go on a tour as we visited in March which isn't the best time to see turtles. That being said, you can see turtles outside of these months as well!

And even if you also decide not to take a tour, it's still a nice drive along the East coast of Oman.

Road trip day 10: the Eastern Hajar Mountains part I

Itinerary: Campsite near Qalhat – Off-roading through the Eastern Hajar Mountains (route 30) – Campsite near Tool

Off-roading through the Eastern Hajar Mountains

Eastern Hajar Mountains Oman highly underrated part of the country

A truly spectacular road! Jebel Shams and Jebel Akhdar are much more famous than the Eastern Hajar mountains but this part of Oman is spectacular and a must-visit.

The trip took us the entire day and we came across 2 other cars while driving this awesome dirt road. We took a vertigo-inducing side-trip to Wadi Tiwi, the most difficult road we did during our time in Oman. Very steep, very narrow, and very cool.

We felt pretty badass driving this road until a freaking jet fighter came flying through the canyon! The same canyon we were navigating at a snail's pace in our car was being navigated by a fearless pilot flying faster than the speed of sound. Talk about perspective.

Road trip day 11: the Eastern Hajar Mountains part I

Itinerary: Campsite near Tool – Ibra – Sharqiya Sands – Desert Night Camp

Viewpoint Ibra

Viewpoint of Ibra Oman old watchtower

We hiked up to one of the old watchtowers overlooking the town of Ibra. A bird's eye view is always worth a climb in my opinion.

Sharqiya Sands

The Desert Night Camp in Sharqiya Sands Oman - luxurious camping glamping in the desert

We spent one night in the Desert Night Camp in the Sharqiya Sands, one of the desert areas of Oman with tall red sand dunes and mesmerizing views…

This is the most luxurious desert camp Oman has to offer and the fanciest tent I’ve stayed at in my life!

After driving 10 kilometers through the desert over a sandy road, we arrived at the beautiful Desert Night Camp surrounded by tall sand dunes.

Upon arrival, we received a cold refreshment towel and a traditional Omani Karak with dates. We were then shown to our stylish and air-conditioned tent.

In the evening, an experienced member of the camp staff drove us up the steep sand dunes next to the camp in a jeep so we could watch the sunset over the desert which was magical…

Spending the night in this beautiful desert camp isn’t cheap, but you do get excellent value for money and a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Road trip day 12: the Eastern Hajar Mountains part II

Itinerary: Desert Night Camp – Off-roading through the Eastern Hajar Mountains (route 30 and 28) – Jaylah Beehive tombs – Jaylah – Noora Camp Plateau

Off-roading through the Eastern Hajar Mountains (route 30 and route 28)

As I mentioned above, this part of Oman is underrated in my opinion. We happily spent a second day exploring the plateau, the ancient beehive tombs, and the small mountain village of Jaylah.

When descending down to the coastal road on the east side of the mountains we pulled over every 5 minutes to admire the stunning views.

Road trip day 13: Wadi Shab, Wadi Tiwi, and Bimmah Sinkhole

Itinerary: Noora Camp Plateau – Wadi Shab and Wadi Tiwi (route 29) – Bimmah Sinkhole – Campsite near the sinkhole

Wadi Shad and Wadi Tiwi (route 29)

Two more beautiful Wadis in Oman. In Wadi Tiwi we drove up to the village Sayma and parked our car (this is only possible in 4WD, but there is a car park at the start of Wadi Tiwi for 2WD cars).

We were welcomed by Mohammed, a friendly 18-year-old boy living in the village. He asked us if we wanted to go swimming and showed us the most amazing turquoise pool. A slice of paradise!

Bimmah Sinkhole

Bimmah Sinkhole Oman Dabab Sinkhole

A sinkhole of unknown depth, very mysterious indeed… I am always amazed and impressed when visiting natural phenomena like this.

Also read this detailed post about visiting the Bimmah Sinkhole.

Road trip day 14: Wadi Al Arbiyyin, As Suwayh Waterfall, Wadi Dayqah Dam and As Sifah

Itinerary: Campsite near sinkhole – Wadi Al Arbiyyin – As Suwayh Waterfall – Wadi Dayqah Dam – Bandar Al Khairan Viewpoint – Campsite As Sifah 

Wadi Al Arbiyyin (route 26)

As Suwayh Waterfall village eastern hajar mountains Oman

A bit more off-road driving before we had to hand in our beloved 4WD!

As Suwayh Waterfall (route 26)

As Suwayh Waterfall Oman Eastern Hajar Mountains

Amazing natural waterslide in the middle of nowhere.

Wadi Dayqah dam (route 25)

Wadi Dayqah dam largest dam in Oman landmark

The largest dam in Oman!

Bandar Al Khairan Viewpoint (route 24)

Bandar Al Khairan Viewpoint Oman

I lost count of how many times the views in Oman took my breath away but this was one of those times…

As Sifah (route 24)

As Sifah East Coast Oman near to Muscat

We spent our last night camping on the beach, an amazing way to end our Oman holiday!

Road trip Oman: in conclusion

We had 2 amazing weeks in Oman and I would have loved to explore more. I'm hoping to return one day and visit Salalah and the Musandam Peninsula!

Great post.

" Oman is a Muslim country and it’s important to dress respectfully."

Do men and women from GCC dress as Westerners when they visit the Netherlands?


Monday 14th of November 2022

Hi Min,

Happy to hear you enjoyed the post. I'm not sure what you mean by this comment.

I wouldn't know how people from GCC countries dress when visiting the Netherlands. But I hope international travelers from all over the world feel welcome in the Netherlands, no matter how they dress, what their religion is,, or what color their skin or their gender is.



Saturday 18th of September 2021

Hi Lotte , thank you for your useful post , the best founded on web. I would like to travel in Oman with my wife in January for three weeks (hope..). I have two questions : have you rent the car directly in airport with Mark tours? i'd like to reach Salalah from Muscat via Coastal Road but i don't know if the drop off is allowed. The Mark's website don't work perfectly. On the way back, where did you leave your camping equipment? Congratulations on your way of communicating, simple and effective!! Luca


Monday 4th of October 2021

Hi Luca,

Thank you for your kind comments, I'm so happy to hear you like my Oman itinerary. Until this day it's one of the most surprising countries I've visited and I would love to return... Regarding your questions:

- We rented the car from the Mark Tours office in Muscat, not at the airport. Though I'm pretty sure that if you email them, they will make arrangements. - We didn't go all the way to Salalah and returned the car to Muscat (where we picked it up). I'm sorry that the Mark Tours website isn't conclusive about allowing a one-way rental. Perhaps you could email them? - We left the camping equipment with Mark Tours so other people could use it. Our next destination was Nepal where we would be staying in tea houses so we decided not to bring it along.

Hope this helps, I wish you a wonderful trip around Oman:-) Please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with! Lotte

PS apologies for the delayed reply, I was on holiday and offline most of the time:-)


Friday 7th of February 2020

Dear Lotte, we are just at the end of a 2-week roadtrip through Oman and your blog was a true inspiration for us. We followed some of your off-road paths and also found some other ones. But we would definitely not have made the one or other without your blog. So, many thanks for publishing your trip. Oman is a beautiful country with extremely hospitable people living there and we enjoyed every day. Best regards, Stephanie


Wednesday 19th of February 2020

Hi Stephanie,

Thank you for your kind words, your comment made my day:-) Happy to hear you loved Oman as much as we do and that my itinerary inspired you to visit some offroad tracks! Curious to hear about the offroad paths you found...

Thank you for reading and happy travels! Lotte


Friday 6th of December 2019

I'm Omani and came across this blog post on your 2 weeks trip to Oman while I was searching for places to visit in Oman. Well done on the post/report and as mentioned before you should definitely pay us another visit and explore that many other parts of Oman which you're yet to enjoy!

Thought I'd leave a comment (which I don't usually do) since I have actually found this useful, so thanks!


Saturday 7th of December 2019

Thank you Azzan, that means a lot coming from an Omani:-) I'd love to revisit Oman and explore other parts of the country! Best regards, Lotte

Sunday 3rd of November 2019

Hi. Great article, this has inspired my wife and me to do the same as we are lucky enough to have just moved to Oman for 3 years. One question please, could you do this 2 week journey with a dog? I am aware of the sensitivities of dogs in oman, but would dogs be permitted on the walks, etc?


Saturday 9th of November 2019

Hi Jamie,

How wonderful you will be living in Oman for 3 years, I'm jealous!!! Regarding your question, I'm so sorry but I don't feel qualified to answer this. As I have no experience with traveling around Oman with a dog, and haven't met anyone who has I don't know if it would be an issue to bring your dog on your road trip. My apologies, I wish I could have helped you out.

Nevertheless, I wish you a wonderful time living in Oman! Lotte
