Oman trips for over-50s

Adam Lowe

Family-run tour operator One Traveller is launching a new holiday destination for the over-50s market: Oman.

One Traveller is solely dedicated to offering escorted holidays and cruises around the world to mature, single travellers over 50. Its new ‘The Sultanate of Oman’ experience is a 13-day adventure unveiling the depths of the second largest country on the Arabian Peninsula. With the Wahiba Desert and the Al Hajar Mountains as the backdrop, guests will travel in 4×4 land cruiser, sleep under the stars in Oryx Desert Camp and cool down in Bimmah Sinkhole and Wadi Dayqah Dam.

Travellers can explore the country’s archaeological sites, forts, castles, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, with highlights including a visit to Wadi Ghul, the deepest canyon in the Middle East and shopping in Nizwa Souk, a marketplace lined with stalls and silversmiths creating boutique gifts.

One Traveller has seen a rise of over 50s looking for more adventurous, experiential holidays, as well as a shift in travel from Europe to further afield, resulting in a growing demand to explore off the beaten track destinations.
