Winter Sun Oman

Many choose to holiday during the summer months, when really it’s the winter months we need to be getting away for. As the UK’s brief summer whistles away and temperatures plummet as quickly as the rain pours, get some winter sun in Oman’s reliable climate, with temperatures consistently soaring to a balmy 24-33 degrees from October to April.

From traditional towns to wind-blown deserts and magnificent mountains to a pristine coastline, Oman is bursting with delights. Our experts can create a bespoke itinerary that celebrates the best this country has to offer. For a family adventure, we know the top experiences to keep children entertained and immersed from dolphin and whale-watching trips to nights spent in the wonderful Wahiba Sands desert in a Bedouin tented camp. Maybe you have a big anniversary coming up, or are looking for the perfect honeymoon location. Make romance and relaxation the only orders of the day as you laze on the tranquil, palm-lined beaches of Salalah. Or perhaps you're just tired of being sat at the office desk and need something to get your blood pumping. Head to Ferrata for adventure in abundance from diving and hiking to abseiling. It's all possible in Oman.

Chase away winter's chill with a tour of some of Oman's sizzling sites. Head to the coast to stay in a sleek and stylish seafront hotel and spend your evenings dining al fresco on a candle-lit beach as a watercolour sunset fills the sky. Venture north of Muscat and you'll discover the lesser-known town of Seeb, a foodie's paradise with an array of souqs selling everything from squid kebabs to traditional Omani sweets. If you're after an adrenaline kick, explore the 12 dive sites around the Daymaniyat Islands and spot large pelago fish, turtles, leopard sharks and even whale sharks over the coral gardens. If that's not enough diving delights for one day, boat over to Bandar Khairan and commandeer the sunken Al Munassir, a 3000-tonne sunken ship which is now home to a wealth of sea creatures.

Away from the shore, inject some serious heat into your winter sun Oman getaway with a trip to the magnificent Wahiba Sands desert. Accompanied by a knowledgeable local guide, explore by 4x4 or atop a camel and soak up the otherworldly desert dreamscapes, from mighty mountains to oasis villages.
