The Norway of Arabia

By Linda Tancs

Situated in the north of the Arabian Peninsula and separated from Iran by the Straight of Hormuz lies the coastal enclave of Musandam, Oman’s northernmost governorate. It’s one of the most beautiful regions in the nation, dominated by 6,500-foot mountains meeting crystal-clear fjords. Because of that geography the area is appropriately dubbed the “Norway of Arabia.” Khor Najd presents the best opportunity for viewing the meeting of mountain and sea, but you’ll need four-wheel drive to access the lookout.
