Overview

A must-see attraction in Oman takes you on a drive across the Qara Mountains and on to the Nejd area of Dhofar on this guided day tour. Dhofar is the most remarkable and popular site with its unspoiled and magical sand dunes, so get ready to enjoy an unforgettable journey!

Embark on this tour to the Lost City of Ubar, a famous UNESCO World heritage site which according to legend sank without trace to become the fabled Atlantis of the Sands! This legendary ancient kingdom, known as Ubar, was said to have existed in one of the most inhospitable places on earth given its vast and forbidding Rub Al Khali desert, appropriately known as the Empty Quarter.

This once buried city, which was spotted by satellite, gives you a glimpse of the value of work carried out by a team of explorers in 1982. Tuck into lunch at Thumrait which was famous as a Bedouin settlement and before your return to Salalah, drive into Wadi Dawka also known as the Frankincense Wadi and indulge in the fragrance!
