The Sultanate of Oman is an authentic destination. Land of ancestral traditions and exchanges of Middle East but also of deserts and green valleys, Oman fascinates the travelers. We love its nature with a big “N” and we let ourselves be guided in XXL panoramas: infinite orange dunes, deserted beaches, gorges and canyons, high and jagged mountains. The sultanate careful preserves its customs and heritage. This is why the ancient villages and monuments are gradually being rehabilitated. Muscat, the capital of Oman, remains on a human scale, without skyscrapers or huge buildings: a welcoming city, melted into its natural environment, set between sea and mountains.
