Full Day Tour


In the morning meeting with the guide at the hotel lobby and proceed for tour.

On the way we will first visit small seaside town Barka famous for it’s fish market and famous Omani sweets “halwa” factory.

After we will continue towards fort Nahal. The meaning of name “nahal” in English is palm, and the fort got it’s name due to palm tree oasis surrounding the fort. There are around 10 thousand trees in this oasis. Fort was built around a large, oddly shaped boulder at the base of Mount Nakhal, which occasionally juts out into the fort’s interior. Surrounded by palm tree oasis fort Nahal looks very impressive and considered as one of the most beautiful forts in Oman. There are also hot springs Al Tuaya located here.

We will continue our tour and winding road will bring us to our next location fort Rustaq, the residence of Imam Ahmad Ibn Said and one of the most beautiful forts of Oman. After fort visit we will stop near hot springs. Local people consider that the water in hot springs has many healing properties.
