Don’t miss the chance to meet various ethnic groups of nomads with their peculiar lifestyle, dialects and colourful costumes.
Emigration and herding have always been part of the Iranian way of life since ancient times. You will also have the opportunity to spend a few days travelling in some of Iran’s spectacular cities. On this journey, you will be confronted with three different social lifestyles: the nomadic, Rural and Urban.
Our journey starts from Tehran.
After arrival at IKA airport and some rest at the hotel, we visit some highlights to discover as much as possible about the history of Iran’s capital, such as the Golestan Palace Complex, the National Museum of Iran and the Treasury of National Jewels.
Accommodation in Tehran
We should leave the hotel early in the morning and have our buffet breakfast in one of the restaurants on the way to the village of Abyaneh (320 km).
Upon arrival in the village, we took the opportunity to familiarise ourselves with the history, architecture and anthropology of the region.
After lunch, we are back on the road to Isfahan, one of the most beautiful cities in Iran (175 km from Abyaneh).
Accommodation in Isfahan
Let’s spend an unforgettable day in Isfahan. As one of the most important sites in Iran, we visited Naqsh-e Jahan Square (The Image of the World it means) with four prominent sites located around it: Imam Mosque, Sheikh Lotfollah Mosque, Ali Qapu and Gheysarieh Traditional Bazaar.
After enjoying our lunch near one of the largest squares in the world, we headed to Hasht Behesht and Chehel Sotoun Palace.
Accommodation in Isfahan
In order to touch on the ebb and flow of nomads in Iran, today we will spend a day with an ancient ethnic group from southwestern Iran, the Bakhtiari People in Chelgard (190 km).
On the way we visited some of the natural wonders like Kuhrang Dam and Dimeh Fountain.
Camping accommodation in Chelgard
To spend our second day among the Bakhtiari tribe, we headed to another region called Gol- Cheshmeh, on our way to the town of Shahrekord (90 km from Chelgerd).
Accommodation in Shahrekord
To familiarise ourselves with the lifestyle of another ethnic group in Iran, today we stay with the Qashqai People, enjoying a local lunch in the magnificent countryside of Semirom (150 km).
Accommodation in a traditional house in Semirom
Still around the Zagros mountain range and heading towards the town of Yasuj (160 km) we visit the landscapes of the Dena Protected Area while spending time with nomads of the region.
Accommodation in an ecolodge in Yasuj
Our adventure journey still continues.
After heading to Gachsaran (155 km), we visited the Marin Staircase Village before dawn.
Accommodation in an ecolodge in Gachsaran
Today we continue to one of Iran’s charming cities, Shiraz (260 km). Where the Tomb of Hafez with its mystical atmosphere at night would become an eternal scene from Iran in our minds.
Today’s accommodation is in Shiraz
Today it is attributed to the most famous Persian Empire, the Achaemenid dynasty. Thus, we will visit the Naqsh-e Rostam Relief, then head to Persepolis (60 km from Shiraz) to visit the glorious monumental ruins of the ancient civilization of Persia Pasargadae (135 km from Shiraz), the remains of the first Persian garden and tomb of the most popular king of ancient Iran, Cyrus the Great.
In the evening, we lodge at the local house in Bavanat (85 km).
Being our last day staying in a local Iranian home, we took the opportunity today to visit the ethnic group of the Bavanat region and after a day full of natural and cultural wonders, we returned to the city of Shiraz in the evening to spend the night at our hotel.
Today we plan to discover more about this former capital of Iran. Our visits start with the Karimkhan Citadel and continue to the Vakil Historical Complex with its bath, Bazaar and Mosque. Enjoying our lunch in the heart of the city, we head to Narenjestan-e Qavam Garden and Nasir Ol Molk Mosque at that time.
Enjoying our farewell dinner in a traditional Iranian restaurant, we prepare to end our journey in Iran.
Accommodation in Shiraz
