Get to know the traditional town of Nakhal in just one afternoon. On this trip, we will explore the impressive pre-Islamic fort and dip into the thermal spring waters in the palm grove.
We will pick you up from your hotel in Muscat and then head to the northwest of the Arabian Peninsula. After a journey of about one hour, we arrive at Nakhal, a beautiful town typical of the Al Batinah region.
We start at the famous fort, considered the largest in the country. This was constructed in the 17th century on a large rocky surface and incorporated a pre-Islamic architectural style thanks to the contribution of the Yaruba and the Al Said dynasties. From the top, you will have spectacular views of Nakhal and its surroundings.
Then, we will go to see the natural spring waters that are hidden behind the castle, located in the heart of the palm grove. There you will see the natural springs that surround the plantations and feed them with minerals.
After, we will board the bus and return to Muscat along the coast. However the trip is not finshed yet, as we will pass by the souk of Seeb and the Avenue Mall commercial centre, both of which are in the capital. There you can do some shopping before we finally drop you off at your hotel.
This is not a guided tour, but you will be provided with an multilanguage audio guide (including English) so that you can learn about the places as you visit them.
Hotel pick-ups will begin at 1pm but we will contact you to confirm the approximate time to expect us at your particular hotel.
