Hiking in Oman

There’s great hiking around Zighy Bay – from tough mountain trails to rather gentler strolls. The friendly guides will take you hikes to suit your levels of fitness, or you can safely venture off on your own. Why not try the resort’s 3,5 or 7 day adventure activity programme?  Ideal for those adventurous souls who like to relax and de-stress through activity, the resort offers an adventure programme that makes use of the mountainous surroundings to get the adrenalin pumping and help you reconnect with nature. Private sessions of paragliding, hiking, mountain biking and bootcamp workouts will get you back in shape in a fun and exhilarating way. Any tired muscles will be soothed with a range of massages and other restorative treatments.

Alternatively there is stunning hiking from the Alila Jabal Akhdar hotel, which is outside Muscat and makes a fantastic combination with a beach break too.
