Holidays to Oman with If Only

Birthplace of Sinbad and source of the aromatic treasure – frankincense, Oman is as land of contrasts with a rich heritage. At a crossroads of ancient trading routes, its friendly and hospitable citizens, who have been welcoming visitors for hundreds of years, are justly proud of their carefully-preserved culture and way of life. With landscapes ranging from towering sand dunes and lush tropical coastlines to high mountain peaks, turquoise fjords and wide golden beaches, once experienced, Oman is never forgotten - whether for a winter break by the beach, a desert adventure, a diving holiday or a trek in the mountains.
