Private Tour




Village-life experience is among those unforgettable ones whose memory will last forever. During this short tour to Sar Agha Seyed Village, we will travel to a stair-stepped village which stuck in time and its residents’ lives are not touched by modernism. The village is about 600 years old with limited access to electricity and no internet. Their culture and lifestyle are like their ancestors with authentic simplicity. Parents work together to keep the house warm and provide whatever needed by the children.

The houses of the village are built on top of each other like the rooftop of the house below is the yard or passing way for the house on top. They are all made of stone, wood and mud and because of the extremely cold winters in the mountainous area of the village, most of the houses do not have any windows.

Our first day will be spent exploring the village, getting to know the locals’ way of living and eating their home-made food (with organic unique ingredients only found in mountains). Nights are quiet without any light pollution while watching the beautiful starry sky. On the second day, we will visit some of the natural attractions of the area hidden in the mountains and see a full view of the village’s wonderful landscape. In the late afternoon, we will say goodbye and get back to Isfahan.

This tour is available in spring and summer (from late April to early November).


  • Living a day like a villager in Sar Agha Seyed
