Nizwa — 7 nights

Once the capital of the sultanate, Nizwa stands as one of the longest-established urban areas in the country, and has retained its traditional core.
Change things up with these side-trips from Nizwa: Al Hamra (Wadi Nakhr Canyon & Al Hoota Cave) and Archaeological Sites of Bat, Al-Khutm and Al-Ayn (in Maqabil). There's still lots to do: get to know the fascinating history of Nizwa Fort, surround yourself with nature on Desert Camels Adventure Tours, delve into the distant past at Bahla Fort, and step into the grandiose world of Jibreen Castle.

To plan Nizwa vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Drive from Sayq to Nizwa in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive. In December, daily temperatures in Nizwa can reach 19°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
