CENTRES

What makes Outward Bound unique can be summarised by the 3 Ps;

We run courses all over Oman, from the monsoon kissed mountains of Dhofar to Musandam, and from Masirah Island to the magical Empty Quarter. In the winter months, we focus on the desert, whilst in the hot summer months we retreat to the cool heights of Jebel Akdhar.

Our National Training Centres

The first of three purpose built centres for outdoor learning opened in October 2017, in the Sharqiya Sands of Oman. In January 2019, our Muscat training centre will open, followed by our mountain centre, located at nearly 8,000 feet above sea level on Jebel Akdhar. In addition to acting as centres for Outward Bound Oman, both the desert and mountain centres will act as field centres for educational geographical, biological and environmental research.
