The bicycle tour through the Nabq National Park* will take you along dunes, past bizarre rock formations and through mangrove forests. With a bit of luck, you might spot Nubian ibex, falcons or storks. You can see an even wider diversity of species in Egypt’s famous underwater world: snorkelling in Ras Mohammed National Park*.

    Muscat, 8.00 – 18.00 hrs

    Muscat/Oman
    By the 18th and 19th centuries, the capital of Oman had already become a wealthy centre of commerce and the white houses of the tradesmen today adorn the historic district of Muttrah with its vibrant souk*. The enormous Sultan Qaboos Grand Mosque* was a gift from the Sultan to his people and it is also open to non-Muslims. An off-road* trip thought the Sultanate will open up some new perspectives with barren mountain scenery and flourishing oases. Or why not swap the EUROPA for a catamaran* and sail along the picturesque Arabian coastline. With a bit of luck, you may even be accompanied by some dolphins.
