It’s been a while since we wish to add the Arabic Peninsula to our tour’s catalog.
Looking for the right place we finally choose Oman, a country that has a stable polical situation, a good whaeter for riding in the winter season and a variety of landscape really surprising.
This little Sultanate is located in the south east side of the Arabic Peninsula, facing directly the Indian Ocean. This area was called by the Romans “Arabia Felix” that means Happy Arabia, this area is partially influenced by the Monson Season and it’s always been rich of aromatic drugs, like incenso.
From the seventies, under the guide of the Sultane Qaboos the country has developed in an armonic way, without the arctitectonic excess of the bordering countries line the EAU. The economy is not just linked on petrol (that is anyway available) but also on tourism, especially in the last years.
On our bike tour we will cross the Hajar Mountains. This mountain range cross the country from north to south. With its 3,000 meters peaks is a natural barrier that divides the white beaches facing the Indian Ocean and the Wahiba Sands Desert.
We enjoy a variety of landscapes: amazing sandy beaches, impressive canions rich of water (Wadi), sand dunes, savannah and rocky area to reach again the sea.
After one overnight in hotel in the capital Muscat, we will start our expeditions in a nomadic style, sleeping each night in tents in very special places. We will end our adventure on the beach, in the very east point of the arabic peninsula.
Finally, going back to Muscat we will have the chance to enjoy a pleasent night in this quiet and fascinating city.
