A DEMANDING ADVENTURE

Based in the blossoming city of Nizwa, the Haute Route Oman will feature demanding climbs in the Al Hajar mountain range, including the long and daunting climb up Jebel Akhdar, the steep Hoota climb up to Jebel Haat and a twisting time trial. With immaculate roads, police escorts, marshals at every intersection, and ideal mid-20°C temperatures, the Haute Route Oman is the perfect opportunity for a northern hemisphere winter getaway and some warm weather riding.
