ride a horse in the al hajar mountains, oman Dramatic red-stone canyons, billowing deserts and coastlines the colour of curacao – Oman is something of a playground for visitors of any age, and at its heart are the Al Hajar Mountains, rising in jagged peaks around the northeast of the country. They’re a hotspot for active family adventures, but for a different way of getting around, suggest saddling up on an Arabian horse. Cox & Kings offers horseriding as an add-on to its Oman Family Explorer trip – tagging it on to dune bashing in the desert, whale-watching along the coast and green-turtle-spotting at renowned nesting site Ras Al Jinz. Book it: Cox & Kings’ Oman Family Explorer costs from £3,195 per person, including flights, B&B accommodation, transfers, some meals and the services of a tour manager. coxandkings.co.uk


float in the dead sea, jordAn With Petra, the Wadi Rum desert and a string of other extraordinary sights to its name, Jordan isn’t short on hooks to entice families. But nothing quite beats floating in the Dead Sea in the Jordan Valley, where the salt concentration makes it feel as if you’re drifting through space, gravity-free. And if bobbing up and down like a starfish isn’t enough of a novelty for the kids, being at the lowest point on Earth – more than 400m below sea level – surely is. Day trips here can be arranged from Amman, where other kid-friendly activities include the open-air Citadel (Jabal Al Qal’a), the Roman ruins at Jerash (30 miles north) and the hands- on, family-dedicated Children’s Museum. Book it: Cyplon offers a week’s B&B at the Amman International Hotel from £1,159 per person, based on a family of four sharing two standard rooms, including flights on August 18. cyplon.co.uk
