Dubbed the ‘Norway of Arabia’ for its beautiful fjord-like khors, small villages and dramatic, desolate mountainscapes, Musandam is a scenic wonderland.
The Musandam Governorate of Oman is an exclave, separated from the rest of Oman by the United Arab Emirates. Visitors therefore arrive in Dubai airport, and must cross the border into Musandam via road transfer. It is composed of four provinces, with one, Madha, itself an exclave halfway between Musandam and Oman. Khasab, the Governorate’s capital, is surrounded by the majestic mountains of the Al Hajar Range.
Venture off the coast for various activities such as sea tours of fjords, snorkelling and diving experiences as well as dhow cruises. On land, trekking, 4x4 excursions, mountain biking, rock climbing and paragliding are all possible
Accessible but still isolated in character, this charming mountainous peninsula with its rugged coastlines and striated sedimentary rock is well worth a visit.
