Iran

Iran is rich in history and has established a great civilisation over thousands of years. There are many amazing monuments that you won’t want to miss visiting. The landscapes are stunning as well and so varied. From subtropical dense forests to beautiful plains, rugged mountains and two of biggest deserts in the world are in Central and Eastern Iran. Welcome to the hidden world of Iran. Travel through this fascinating country to discover refined Islamic cities, colourful bazaars, ancient Persian ruins, fascinating nomads, and shimmering deserts.

Ancient towns that date back to the Silk Road era, elaborate mosques that beam out the evocative call to prayer and modern cities where fashion-conscious youth rub shoulders with conservative elders – it’s time to demystify the misconceptions about Iran! Exquisite palaces, domed mosques, brilliant bazaars and gracious people all make Iran a true travel gem.

Whether relaxing in a teahouse in Tehran or breaking bread with nomads on the harsh Iranian plateau, the warmth and hospitality of the Iranian people is endearing and the profound beauty of their land is mesmerising. But don’t believe us… come and experience the splendour of Iran yourself!
