The Sultanate of Oman is a ‘hidden jewel at the tip of the Arabian Peninsula’. It is a vibrant country with a unique balance; retaining a strong connection to its history, whilst embracing modern living. The Omani people are warm and hospitable and possess a very unique charm that quickly captivates those who come to live and work in Oman.
Oman has a desert climate, and whilst the rest of the region has soaring temperatures in the summer months, you are able to escape the summer heat and visit the mountains in Dhofar and the Al Hajar range where you can enjoy cooler temperatures. In the cooler months between November and March, the climate is closer to that of a warm and sunny UK summer day.
Popular activities include hiking and camping, scuba diving, fishing, dolphin spotting and the rugged landscape with mountains, deep gorges and water-filled wadis mean there is something for everyone to enjoy.
